    Let's play...oh no wait, it may get serious

    Hi everyone & hope you are well,

    Thought I'd throw into play the following:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f23/my...5138619-2.html

    So what if, say, I was going to trade the two above pieces, for one piece, to further behave as one watch (yes I think I could do with just one):

    Before looking at my "conditions" below, please bear in mind I have been wearing a watch say 60% smart/business casual, 30% sports casual and the remainder 10% formal or no watch at all. Not including working around the house and gym etc. Therefore so it goes:

    - I would rather stick with the crown brand
    - please no two-tone or gold
    - for quick math reasons let's say the trade value would be around 15K in total, give or take, would not mind a 1-2 k top up - so let us consider a "one watch" at that price point
    - more to the above, I will not take a watch say of 10K value to keep the $ left - so I will need one watch for all my money or very much close to the 15K mark with a 1-2k top up possible
    - Maaaybe but just maaaybe you try very very haaaard, you just might talk me out of Rolex brand


    Writing this it just becomes funny that I might have a specific model in mind that would fit the bill, let's see how it goes.

    Thanks folks!

    Why don’t you tell us what that watch is and see whether or not people agree with you.

    It's almost difficult to go up to $15k and not get at least two-tone.

    How about DJ41 in rhodium-diamonds-fluted-jubilee? I'm not kidding about the diamonds, either — I think they're the same stones that they put on the DJ36, but because the 41's dial is bigger, they don't look so blobby.

    GMTIIs are either nigh-impossible to get new in SS or they're in TT. So those are out. Same with Daytonas.

    Or a Cellini Date in white gold? It MSRPs for ~$17kUS. How much do you want a bracelet for this next watch?

    I'm not sure if you're even thinking of Subs and Seadwellers since you weren't already leaning that way with the EXPII and DJ.

    This thread is too obscure. What watch are you trying to get OP, just tell us. Also, I highly doubt you will get talked out of getting a Rolex lol.

    Too vague. You're asking for opinions based solely on a price point, not giving explanation as to why you're prepared to trade in those that you currently own. And, you're open to going outside Rolex. So... As mentioned, how about narrowing the field and any opinions received could be more helpful. Preferred style, complication, features, even color options?

    Well assuming you want to spend it all on watch, and you don't want bling, you might just be in trinity territory.

    I would go with the Skydweller in SS.
