    Not exactly... I hope the Omega brand reaches that standard someday.

    Re: Omega seamaster as prestigious as Rolex submariner

    How are you defining more prestigious?

    Example, what's more prestigious here?

    This?

    See definition as stated above.

    The OP wrote of prestige in the context of Submariner vs. the SMP.

    You're missing the point. Prestige is a matter of class, not objects.

    The Submariner is certainly more trite.

    No. But every time I sit down and play poker people think it's a Rolex. I happily tell them its Omega and that it's a better watch tech spec wise. Also, it's nice standing out from the crowd as everyone else has a Sub.....Stand out. Plus Rolex is still an entry level watch...just like Omega.

    At the risk of seeming pedantic...

    Prestige defined by the Cambridge.org dictionary - respect and admiration given to someone or something, usually because of a reputation for high quality, success, or social influence.

    The answer to the original question posed should be within the context of the defined, operative word.
    You are right in pointing out the the Beebs is a bit more gauche than the Prince.

    To a WIS I'd wager it's pretty much 50/50 but to the masses it would have to go to the Sub.

    It's an interesting question in terms of the "masses," though, since the people who would draw a clear distinction between the two would be very unlikely to even notice that you were wearing a watch in the first place.

    No. I own both. I get more compliments/looks when wearing the Sub. But I love my Seamaster.

    Re: Omega seamaster as prestigious as Rolex submariner

    The Rolex Submariner is more prestigious to the general public. Rolex dominates in brand recognition. Their resale value, thanks to brand recognition and demand, is off the charts too. Which watch you choose to purchase should not be based on prestige. Personally, I do not like the look of Rolex, the cyclops does not appeal to me and I do not like the Mercedes hour hand. Choose the watch you will enjoy wearing, even after the honeymoon phase is over, regardless of prestige.
