    Need Help Deciding between AT or No Date Sub

    Like many others interested in the Rolex Sub, I threw my name on a wait list and was expecting a call in a few years as I have only been on for a few months.

    Fast forward to today - I was checking out Omega ATs at my local AD and was ready to pull the trigger on the white dial with orange hands. I told myself I would walk away and think about it as they had the Ryder Cup limited edition in stock and I needed sometime to noodle which one I wanted more.

    On the drive home, I got a call from my Rolex AD. Strange I thought. I let the call got to voicemail and checked once I got home. Much to my surprise the message informed me that I was bumped on the list and they have a sub for me if I want it.

    I donít know what to do now. I wasnít expecting this type of expense so soon. I have the money for the AT but we are talking almost another $3000 for the Rolex.

    Perhaps it just sticker shock coupled with the fast forward in time frame thatís getting to me but I donít know how to proceed.

    Should I just let them know itís too soon and to come back to me in a year ? Does it work like that ?

    Should I go with the AT and pass on the sub?

    Should I go with the sub and pass on the AT?

    Any advice from this great community would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    If the Sub is the watch you really want, then you should get that. However, if buying it now puts you under financial pressure, then kindly let the AD know that your grateful they bumped you up the list but you can't buy one right now. Don't buy the AT though. Keep saving for the Sub.

    If it’s the sub u really want then pull the trigger. The AT is a much more versatile watch but if your lifestyle reflects both styles then I’d stick with the original plan. As a side note I don’t know where u live but if here in the states there are some dealers that can get you a better price than full retail on the AT.

    Re: Need Help Deciding between AT or No Date Sub

    To answer some questions posed in the thread:

    The sub would be at full MSRP. Nothing more besides taxes added to it.

    My Omega AD was offering me 20% off the AT.

    Considering that the Omega lines are METAS certified while the Sub is only COSC, does the antimagnetic properties and technology between the watches not come out as factors of consideration?

    You mentioned you had the money for the AT, do you have the money for the Rolex yet?

    I could pull it together. It wouldnít be ideal for a month or so but could be done without any serious consequences.

    That’s a fair deal on the AT. Antimagnetic May have some real world benefit if you work near X-ray machines. I doubt you’d notice a second or two per day in timekeeping. And the date may also be a plus.

    Re: Need Help Deciding between AT or No Date Sub

    I would jump on the Sub while you have the chance. Assuming you are into the whole new watch/box&papers/AD thing, Subs are hard to get (but plenty on the forums).
    Main Rotation: ROLEX SubC 116610 / OMEGA Speedmaster 3750.50 / OMEGA Aqua Terra 2503.33 / HAMILTON Field Khaki
    Seiko: SRP775 Turtle Reissue / 6139-6002 "Pogue" (blue dial) / 6106 Sea Lion / Orange Monster
    Some Vintage: OMEGA 1959 cal. 500 Seamaster / LONGINES tank c. 1940s (currently on the wrist of my lady-friend)
