Good morning all,
I am in the midst of a dilemma and I'd like some input from the members here. My 30th birthday is coming up and I would like to treat myself for said birthday as well as for receiving a promotion at work, and for my 5 year wedding anniversary - at least that's how I'm justifying this.
To that end, I am torn between the iwc Portuguese auto 5001-07 and the submariner no date 114060. It is worthwhile to note that I currently have an omega planet ocean xl 2500 on bracelet - a watch I will not part with.
That being said, I am looking to add to the collection. Originally, I was all for the 5001 as it was light faced, on leather, and dressier than my current PO. It's a stunning watch in every aspect. On the other hand, I find myself drawn more and more to the sub no date. It would be a first rolex, timeless design, maintains value relatively well, etc.
My question for you all is where you would go? I am concerned about favoring one diver over the other if I get the sub and keep the PO. Simultaneously, adding my first rolex would certainly mark a special occasion and would love to own one.
What do you guys think? Thanks!
