    You have the Explorer 36mm picutred, not the 39mm. If the 36 is on the board, I'd choose the 36mm.
    - It is the best size of the three does dress up and down (the 39mm less so)
    - It has 100m water resistant and a proven, rugged movement (the tudor has a proven, troublesome movement)
    - It is almost guaranteed to hold value the best of the three

    Sell 'em all and get a real watch.

    That was a joke. I'd take any one of them.

    Wish I could have them all. Date is kind of important in my day to day so I would say the Tudor gmt. I can dress that up or down. If the speedy had 50 meters more water resistance, it is hands down my pick. A sporty watch that can look dressy with the right strap.

    Value wise the explorer is probably the best out of all the 3. It's well known, a great size, more than enough water resistance and can be dressed up or down. Since I have friends and family around the world the gmt function helps a lot in terms of when I should or shouldn't call.

    If I had to choose I'll take the explorer and sell the speedy and tudor and fund a vacation. You should be able to get close to 4-5 grand depending on the buyer for the speedy and tudor.

    Although I like the Speedy, but if I was forced to have only one watch it’s gonna be a simple three-hander. No chrono, no day, no date, no other complications. So Rolex gets my vote.

    None of those for me, as none of those fit a "one watch" bill IMHO.

    Although I'm not a fan of the Explorer, that's the one of those three. It's the most versatile to be able to dress up or down for any occasion. There is something to be said for value retention as well. If you change your mind in the future you can sell the Explorer and fund something else.
