    If you had these two watches, which would you buy next?

    Apologies if threads like this show up too often. I can delete if needed. I'm trying to decide on my next watch purchase and could use your input. I'm not much of a watch collector and far, far from an expert but these are the two that I have so far.

    IWC Portugieser Chronograph Classic - Love this watch. The dial has so depth to it and I love that it shifts based on the way the light falls on it. I have worn this for weddings but also wear this day to day. I don't think I will own another watch that I love more than this.
    Grand Seiko SBGA211 - The snowflake is so unique and eye catching. The blue second hand moves so smoothly that it is almost mesmorizing. This is a watch that looks much nicer in person and is really eye catching.

    I'm looking at adding another and here are my thoughts so far:

    i. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 39.5mm
    ii. Omega Speedmaster Professional
    iii. Rolex Submariner 116610LN

    I am looking for a watch that can be worn as a daily driver. I think all of the three choices above can fit that purpose but I keep going back between them in my head. Thoughts?

    None of the above-- I would get my favourite, the most recent version of the Rolex Explorer 1. Not the Speedy as the IWC that you love already covers what the Speedy has to offer. This begs the question, however--why do you feel you need another watch? Don't let hoarding patterns such as demonstrated on this site be your guide.

    One of these might work. I think it would be just as wearable daily as your other two options

    For a balance in your collection, I would favor the Sub. If you can wing it, I would recommend a Sea Dweller 4000 discontinued.

    Definitely get the sub - that would leave you with an amazing 3-watch collection!

    Some great recommendations in this thread.

    I always thought the Combo of the GS Snowflake and the Rolex Submariner was the perfect two-watch combo, so that gets my vote.

    Between the three choices offered, here's another vote for the Sub.
    Bulova> 96B251. Casio> 5600E. Damasko> DS30. GrandSeiko> SBGH205. Rolex> 114060, 16710. Seiko> SARB017, SARB033, SBDX017, SLA017.

    Stunning watches you have there. I agree with the other posters, a Speedy is redundant. A Sub is a fine choice of course, if a bit predictable. I'm also not a fan of the "fat lug" look of the current ceramic sub, but of course that's personal taste. If it were me - Yachtmaster.

    Omega Speedmaster for sure.
    Best choice in my opinion.
