    Re: Omega seamaster as prestigious as Rolex submariner

    i think most WIS and nearly all non WIS would generally regard the sub as more prestigious timepiece both as a perception of quality and a fact of historical significance...and that’s ok. Does not demean the Seamaster at all nor does it mean the sub is a Better watch. That’s a debate for another day.

    If you base it on resale value, then no.

    Is the latest & greatest Sub a better watch than the latest & greatest SM? That's debatable and a debate where both are winners. IMO the 2018 SM 300M with the 8800 movement is as good a watch if not better than the Sub and at half the price, not to mention it's readily available at your local Omega boutique.

    I would say worry less about what others will think of your watch because 99% of the people out there don't care.

    Advertising and commercials seen by the masses are for companies that need to increase their sales. Ferrari and Porsche don't advertise. Rolls Royce doesn't advertise. Patek Philippe doesn't advertise. Why? Because they already have more demand than supply. Maybe Omega is in the same boat. Rolex depends on an image. Without that fairytale image, their prices, and sales would plummet.

    Will a car salesman or bartender point out your Submariner more frequently than your Seamaster? Yes. I have neither, but I did have one of each comment on the Explorer II I was wearing over the last week or so.

    Me? Someone has to have something pretty rare or cool for me to notice and comment. I have a REAL appreciation for people who wear Seiko 5s and SKXs. I see those folks as no nonsense watch people who "get it." I'm not kidding.

    Maybe the real question is it prestigious to pay people to wear your watches.

    General opinion would be no, but then if you are looking for people's approval by wearing something prestigious, just get a Rolex and be done with. I think most non watch people will regard Rolex as the top.
