    Probably no such thing as a perfect watch but I'm sure there are watches that will seem to be less imperfect to you.

    What? I would never bring someones relative into this! That's horrible....

    With all due respect, Adnan, you are over-rationalizing (I doubt the word exists, but everybody knows I can’t speak English properly) your purchase to the point you’re making it completely impossible.

    Yes, the bezel on the Explorer may scratch (I wear two frequently and they’re scratch free, but never mind) yes, the BLNR has a certain bling to it; yes, the services for JLC and VC can be expensive and take too long; yes, Omega AT opaline dials are not white… etc. etc. etc.



    You’ll always find – whatever your choice – pros and cons. Worst: some cons are only obvious after the purchase and some pros never show up, after all.


    Please, find a watch. Put the watch on your wrist. Now: do you like it? Go ahead. Buy it. Otherwise, start again or take a short break – not from WUS, that’s forbidden, you know? - sooner or later, you’ll find your watch…and we want pics!
    And don't worry:be happy!


    Cheers

    In a properly functioning organization, every person brings a benefit. One of mine is that I am the one that makes sure an analysis shut down does not occur. Get some high level information, mix in some gut, make a decision, 9 times out of 10 you will win......it covers the losses

    DJII & the BLNR is all you will ever need imo.

    The BLNR isn't as bling as it appears to be, the PCL isn't that obvious in day to day wear. Also, if you intend to keep it for good and dislike the PCL, there is always the option of brushing it.

    When I was reading your requirements, I thought to myself Explorer II with a white dial.

    You can get a used one of these in a 40mm case for fairly cheap ( compared to the new version ).

    Here is mine, before I sized it for the Mrs ( she wears it now, I do not count it in my rotation anymore ).

    It is a white dial, I have never looked at it and thought cream or off white.

    I have a few dings in the bezel ( 20 to 22 area ) but I wear my tool watches for everything. I do not take them off and protect them when I am going to do something other than typing. This one has also been to Home Depot loading supplies like my 666. They are made to take more than I can toss at them.

    I have a 7-3/4" wrist, ~ 68mm wide as a reference.

    LBF said it in a joke, but it is true.
    If you get tired of it, you will be able to recoup your investment ( as long as you are not trying to sell it 10 months later ) and there is nothing special about the 40mm Explorer II so they are generally for sale in abundance.

    No fear, that's why we have the sales forum.

    I've probably lost a combined thousands on flipping watches, I write this off as part of the hobby and the cost if doing business.

    Let's keep this in perspective okay? You're buying a watch, not deciding the fate of millions. Assuming you're sticking to a budget that won't ruin you just buy the god damned watch and quit being so neurotic about it. Jesus christ I didn't stress a fraction as much over buying my house.

    You're not the first person to be making this decision and you won't be the last. Even if you wind up being less than orgasmically thrilled with your choice know that the earth will continue spinning on its axis, fools will continue falling in love, and at long last Rolex will continue being the darling of the children of a lesser god.

    Have faith. Take the leap. Fall flat on your face. Get back up and do it all over again.
