Hi all. I’m right on the cusp of pulling The trigger on a everyday piece. My budget puts me into entry level preowned Rolex. I really like the 116000 with the blue Explorer dial. However, even preowned that’s out of reach. Here’s the thing: knowing what they go for used seems unwise with 3 little kids at home. Everyone’s calculus is different on how much is too much, but 3k is what I can spend in good conscience. I only mention this because it contradicts my thoughts of saving up for the 116000.
Long explanation. Sorry. It has me looking at the Black Bay 36 in blue. Different watch, but there’s a lot to like. Similar case profile, blue, good WR, I really like the dial. One of the criticisms of the BB36 is that there’s a lot of glare. Putting aside that I think it’s silly to have a beautiful dial and not use existing technology to make sure there’s no glare on it, I wonder is the BB36’s glare worse than Rolex models? I borrowed a 14010 for a bit and I got used to the glare and I wonder if the BB36 is somehow worse?
If it’s a stupid question, my apologies. Thanks for everyone’s time.
