So this post is the mother of all decisions. Aren't they always though?? So Joking aside, I have a bit of a conundrum. My life is moving in a different direction now and having multiples of watches, bicycles etc are being reduced to singles to help fund this change in life. I can pick up more bikes and watches when this change is complete. They're only luxury items and I've always been willing to move them on if needs be. So here is the watch issue.
Do I keep the PO LM LE or the Submariner 14060m?
A little history on both.
Omega Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition of 1948 Pieces
Bought from an AD back in 2011. Often referred to as "the" PO to own. A transitional model that comes with the 2500 case thickness in 42mm, with ceramic dial and liquidmetal bezel. It's the only watch I've kept hold of. I keep it on OEM rubber strap and deployant clasp and it wears beautifully. It dresses up or down with ease and the shiny aspects really help in this regard. The thickness has never been an issue, but it wears a little larger now as I'm much slimmer than I was when I bought it. Not a deal breaker but I'm aware of it.
Rolex Submariner 14060m
I bought this watch last month. It's the classic Submariner. The beautiful classic case shape with slender lugs, two lines of text on the dial, no date clutter. It has an alumnium bezel insert which gives its a little shine, but it's much more understated than the PO. A classic tool watch if you like. It's also a strap monster and rocks a NATO like no other watch, except maybe a Speedmaster. It also dresses up or down easily. It wears small on the wrist and I don't notice I'm wearing it half the time.
So which one do I keep? I know it's ultimately my decision and this one is tough. I have a little while to make my decision however.
Thanks for reading and I wish you all a good day.
