Ok guys, so here goes. I know that ultimately it's going to be my decision to make, but I'm going to post anyway. That's what watch forums are for are they not?
Soooooooo....I've had a thing for black dial and bezel dive watches for a long time. They look great, classic styling, versatile colour unaffected by wardrobe colour choices, but a little boring perhaps? Well!!! I've decided that I want some fun and colour in my life, or on my wrist at least!
These are two watches that I fancy.
Rolex Submariner 116610LV
The LV wasn't a watch I liked until I saw it in the metal. It's really striking and that dial is a chameleon.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 8500 42mm
I don't like the PO on the bracelet whatsoever and I already own the black OEM rubber strap and deployant clasp so I would buy it on these orange rubber to mix it up a little brighter when I fancy and the black for a toned down look.
Price isn't so much a factor, more of what to do with the present collection which consists of:
Rolex Submariner 114060
Owned since 2013. Classic no date diver. Wears super comfy at 40mm and thin, best bracelet in the business, glidelock clasp and without the cyclops over the date.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition
Owned since 2011. Often referred to as the most beautiful PO, a hybrid between the 2500 and 8500 and the first to come with the liquidmetal bezel and ceramic dial. Wears really nicely on the rubber OEM strap and deployant. Recently serviced in Switzerland and now in its box whilst I decide what I'm going to do
Omega Seamaster 300 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
Owned since release August 2017. I fell for this one instantly. It wears amazingly at 39mm and another no date classic looking diver. I personally hate the bracelet and it remains unsized and unworn in the box. The only downside for me is that it's a little too "vintage" looking in that it doesn't really go with my clothing. I wear bright colours, technical fabrics and quite modern looking.
So here is the conundrum. I'm looking to own only two watches going forward. Which one of my current three should I keep and which of the orange PO or the Submariner LV should I pick up next? Or should I sell all three and have the orange PO and Sub LV as my 2 watch collection?
Thanks for reading
