    Right on the money with this!

    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.

    I'm afraid the Rolex marketing machine is more formidable than Omega's.

    So, no. To the general public, Rolex is the "best watch in the world."

    The Seamaster is a very nice watch but to many people, Rolex is better than anything out there!. Quality wise, they’re pretty close and I’ve owned both brands.

    Re: Omega seamaster as prestigious as Rolex submariner

    I've asked myself so many times. Omega is a great brand and offer amazing products, but at today...Rolex is more prestigious (generally speaking). Omega has newer and better technology and still there is no wait list .

    1) Omega made too many watches,too many special editions, too many of everything

    Solution: keep it simple and keep it classic. They have history(speedmaster,ploprof)

    2) Omega is a marketing disaster

    Solution: I don't know,maybe find a new media director

    P.S. I love both brands, today I prefer Rolex

    So the OP has basically disappeared after the original post. These types of posts do nothing but waste time! People who know...know. People who don't...don't care to know.

    Yep that pretty much sums it up. The good thing with Omega is that you can walk into a store and buy whatever the hell you want and not waste time with all this waitlist garbage. I think I understand what Rolex is trying to achieve with this, but in fact I think it's also pissing off many of its customers or future customers. In the end people will say "why bother?"

    No, which is a pretty big mark in favor of the Omega. I want to be as low-key as possible.

    That said, it's unlikely that 99% or more of the population would notice and/or care about what watch you're wearing.
