    Need help deciding on watch

    I cant decide on these 2 watches:

    Rolex Explorer 2
    Breitling Blackbird Blacksteel LE

    I know the are different but I like them both.

    Based on
    1. Movements
    2. Resale value
    3. Style

    which one is a better watch.

    That Bling is tacky IMO. I love my Exp II and would only consider the in-house Navitimer as a trade.

    Given the choice, Exp II. Ticks all of the boxes for you. It's a watch that I would keep and not flip for many, many years :)

    You need to consider your style and how and where you will wear the watch. Are you mostly casual? Or are you a sharp dresser most of the time?

    That will help you decide.

    Also, being one of your criteria, the Exp II would be much easier to sell; it has much more universal appeal.

    I think you should go for Breitling Blackbird Chronograph, it is one of my favorites. It has Stainless steel case with high tech diamond like carbon coating, matte finish, scratch resistant. Also it really looks good.

    Based on your criteria, Rolex. It's not a close call.

    I like both styles, I dress up more casual. I really like both watches but could only afford one at the moment. The Breitling is actually more expensive.

    Go with the Rolex.
    Classic timeless style, good resale value and an in house movement make it an easy decision.

    Go with the Rolex - you will be able to sell it for almost what you paid for it, in case you have second thoughts. I highly doubt that you will, though ;)
