    Need Advice! Please Read

    Let me start by thanking anyone in advance for your help.

    I am currently watchless, I have always wanted a Sub and now the SubC ever since it has been on my wrist. But, it has always been a little out of my price range (even used). I really want a does it all kinda watch and I feel the Sub can do that. Although I may be just lying to myself. I prefer the watch to be on bracelet and I can spend about $3500.00. Anyone have any suggestions for me, what watch to get, anything I am missing. I do not like the 5 pinch SMP bracelet and I like black faces usually.

    Any thoughts on explorer ii, does the 40m wear too small? Is the Rolex worth the hype? Will it disappoint? I have 7.25 flat wrist. I need this to be the last watch (for a while anyways), as my wife is going to kill me.

    Based on your last pieces I would say Rolex is a nice upgrade. However, it'll be impossible to find a Sub at that price. Have you thought of any others?

    Is it worth the extra money for the Rolex? It is out of my comfort zone, but if it ends the nonsense!

    Tudor Black Bay fits the bill nicely. Also check out the Omega Aqua Terra.

    If going for a do it all Rolex, the Explorer would be my choice which would run about 5k preowned. Alternatively, the Omega Aqua Terra covers similar territory (minus some lore) and is right in your price wheelhouse. More affordable still, the Ball Fireman Victory is a nice choice.

    You said that you've always wanted a sub, if you get anything that isn't a sub, you will spend the rest of your life thinking about a sub and eventually you would buy one.

    I would second the Omega Aqua Terra suggestion. The watch is gorgeous in person, and has distinct personality.

    mpalmer, have you ever owned an Explorer, did you find the 40m to wear smaller then a sub?

    What about the Tudor Black Bay? The blue version is very versatile and can easily be found new under budget.

    New only? Or pre-owned/vintage? $3500 would potentially get you a Sub (albeit a Tudor Sub)... Examples I found:
