    Hey Bro Del, how about my Eterna?

    Better than my Sub?


    Or Pepsi?


    No way that underdog is getting anywhere.

    Re: Would you Stand for the "Underdog"?

    Honestly this seemed to be an entirely useless argument thread. The only actual decent argument he made was when he mentioned the Maurice Lacroix masterpiece watches. They are a true underdog in my opinion when it comes to consumers or other WIS not giving them the respect they are sometimes due IMO. For instance they made the masterpiece fly back annuare. That was a fly back chronograph with an annual calendar, and the big date complication, that had an msrp under $10k which is insane, and from what I understand it was a very very nicely finished watch. Now that is something I would say is nicer than a Rolex simply on its level of function, but it is still unlikely that it would beat Rolex on its complete finishing. Either way I would rather have the ML Flyback than an explorer or sub but that is my own preference and I would never be foolish enough to insist it was the superior watch in every way to a Rolex but I would be willing to say I thing it is the better value for my money.

    Re: Would you Stand for the "Underdog"?

    Keep in mind that the point here was not necessarily to trump a Rolex, so you fanboys can relax. The psychological adjustment in people has been and always (probably) will be that a Rolex is #1. To most laymen an expensive was is synonymous with ...Rolex, as Kleenex is to facial tissue. Most play on this for their own vanity and I get it. My Eterna is as nice as a Rolex; however for ones to admit this would mean, to them, that their very own Rolex is ...debunked, in a sense. Who wants to be stuck with the "loser"? To admit would come personal sacrifice. I get it.

    Like I said, this thread was intended for people to post ...underdogs, and you Rolex fanboys in a tizzy have ruined it.

    I stood up for an underdog when I purchased a Grand Seiko in 2011 to pair with my Submariner.

    OP, You started the ball down hill after your first sentence, by inserting your ego, then kept it rolling further by stating your feelings as fact, that made it go faster down the hill. Maybe you should take your ball and leave the field.

    You misunderstand - I am a big fan of Rolex. They make one of the most wearable watches. However, they are not the best in any single area - as @playinwittime said, what they ARE good at is being very good across the board, and that's what makes them so good and hard to beat.

    The sign of horological adolescence is being fixated on Rolex, for better or worse, to the exclusion of everything else: they are the ones making ignorant statements trying to show how their XYZ watch is objectively better than Rolex (and it is always Rolex, mind you), and also under the impression that this is the first time that someone has ever made a post like that. And of course, they then resort to calling anyone who points out the inconsistencies in their logic as "fanboys". Self-congratulatory autofellatio often follows. :)

    Btw, OP - my Rolex IS the underdog in my collection. My AP spanks my BLRO in terms of finishing. My Lange spanks the BLRO in terms of movement decorations. The JLC spanks the BLRO in terms of movement complications. And yet the BLRO gets more wrist time than any of them. Right now, I have an open slot in my core collection and a fairly healthy budget for filling it (up to a trinity level watch), and yet the one candidate that I keep coming back to is a blue OP 39mm. So the pluckly little mid-end Rolex holds its own very well against some high-end heavy hitters.
