Buy and wear what you can afford without pissing off the family or changing your living situations. I have an Explorer that I love and wear it almost everyday but sometimes I like to change it up and wear a no name gift watch my father gave me or my blue G shock square.
I have had my Explorer for over a year now and only had one person compliment on it, I have worn my no name quartz watch and G shock and gotten more compliments on those when rarely wearing them. If you want people to notice your Rolex and think it will make you more important, you probably aren't going to get more respect for wearing it but, If you want people to notice you have one get a model that screams it out but if you want to wear your watch because you enjoy it, get what you like.
I actually always wanted a diver watch so I have been eyeing the BB 58 but have been on a waitlist forever for the bracelet version. I walked into my AD because they had the BB58 Nato version so I wanted to check it out in person but they also had the new Seamaster wave dial in black and when looking at both models the BB58 was plain and simple, almost too simple and it didn't really stick to me but when looking at the new seamaster in person that watch is beautiful. Ended up buying the seamaster instead because the hardware and everything else is more bang for your buck than the Tudor BB58 has.
