    Confused Explorer (Ref. 214270) OR Submariner (Ref. 114060)

    Need help with deciding which one to get! I am planning to acquire one of these two awesome watches, Explorer Ref 214270 or Submariner Ref 114060, in about 4 months. I like both!!!


    My one criteria is that the watch needs to be an all rounder. I currently have an Oyster Perpetual 39 - White Dial and love it!.


    PS: Rumor has it that both of these timepieces will have new versions at Baselworld 2020. What do you think?

    Short answer: you already have on OP 39, which shares the same case with the Explorer, so by buying this one, you will be shelling a lot of money for not too much difference. The Sub, on the other hand, is a totally different beast, it has nothing in common in your OP.

    P.S.: rumors by definition are not facts, I definitely wouldn't base my choices on rumors

    Both are great watches, but as you already have an OP39, I’d recommend getting the 114060. The cerachrom bezel will add another dimension and variety to your growing collection. Good luck!

    Easiest answer today. The Sub is the iconic timepiece. Of course, there are those who will accuse me of bias.

    Well, since you have a _white dial_ OP either Exp I or Sub will be a great addition to your collection. Exp I will be more of the same feel with a few upgrades, while Sub will be a totally different watch in terms of feel, looks, wrist presence, etc...

    I can see a case for either choice, but I'd go with Sub first. More range, totally different feel.

    Get the Sub. The OP and Explorer are far too similar to have both. I mean, you could have both, but that would be boring. Get something different.

    I have a Ceramic Sub Date so it's not quite the same as a no date Sub but I would echo those saying go with it. If you do a lot of water sports it can only be the logical option.

    The OP is too similar to Explorer imo. Only the hands and the heritage makes it slightly different.

    Beautiful shot of an awesome watch! Couldn't miss the sparkle at 9 o'clock on the bezel.
