What I'm saying, a real collector gets it for a collection, I have two subs and keeping them till the price is so inflated I can't stand it and sell them. BTW I think that new SMP is going to kick ass in quality for the money but it will never be as sought after as a Sub. No offence to the SMP guys.
    Your reply was making references to cleaners and their drivers in California. Your statements are not just offensive but flawed.

    I agree with you that it was offensive (in a few different ways), but I don't think it was meant with mean spirit. I've been losing family member lately. Natural causes. Very upsetting. I think life is just too short to get hung up on things like this. I would suggest bringing this thread back to the new SMP.

    Re: New 2018 SMP 8800's are arriving in the US this week...

    I chose the new SMP for a few reasons:

    1) as a recent graduate with a new job (accounting) I didn’t want to be just another business guy that bought a sub just because.

    2) the value proposition, the bang per buck, or whatever else you’d like to call it - is out of this world. And that doesn’t leave me feeling like I cheapened out and got a SMP because I “couldn’t afford” a sub. It makes me feel like I got an awesome deal on a very high quality timepiece. Profit margins are inflated on all luxury goods anyway, is it really worth bragging that you paid more of a margin?

    3) it’s not the safe choice. Well, let me elaborate. The sub is the safe choice. Black on black, classic, you can’t go wrong. But the Seamaster is the sexy sister. I went for the fun blue version, and with its ceramic dial with waves, unusual skeleton hands, transparent caseback, scalloped bezel and pop of red text, this is a super fun watch. And the reason that’s important to me is because even though I might’ve chosen a safe career option, I shouldn’t forget to have fun and enjoy my youth. And no doubt when I’m older and look down at my Seamaster I’ll remember my younger days.

    Let me state that I would love to also own a sub one day so this isn’t bashing on Rolex. If you disregard the size, maybe the bezel feel and action, let’s face it - the Seamaster is the fun version of the Sub that Rolex is too afraid to make. They have their reasons and I don’t blame them. Why change what already sells? You have to sell Seamasters to people, but subs sell themselves.

    But all these colors, the transparent caseback, and the multi-colored lume, Rolex wouldn’t be caught dead with any of these. So to me personally, it is just a more fun watch and that’s why I chose it. And I’d love to own a sub one day, but I can wait til the market bubble bursts ;)

    I'll admit it. I hated this watch in photos because of the waves. I actually went to my AD and tried this version on. I was very impressed and I'm not a two tone fan. Something about it that just sang to me. The blue one is also nice. I better hide my wallet before something happens.
