I just finally got my first Rolex and that itch to save up for another one is back again.
I just traded in my Black Bay Red ETA and sold a Aquaracer for a Black Oyster Perpetual 36. The biggest reason for my sale of the BB is that I have smaller 6.5‚ÄĚ wrists and the BB just felt too clunky on my wrist.
I am trying to decided what might be a good next watch as wait times at both the ADs close to me are soooo long :( if I don‚Äôt want to pay a stupid premium from getting it somewhere else.
I currently have:
-And my wife is getting me a Squale 1545 militare for X-mas :)
I was thinking I need a bit of colour back in my collection, but I think if I get another Rolex I want to keep it classic (black or white). Tudor on the other hand may be a good option to add some colour again. I can always add straps to get some colour :)
I was thinking of these possibilities:
-OP39 white (1 year plus wait list)
-OP36 Blue Dial (also wait list)
-Sub Nodate (maybe years for WL)
Polar Explorer II (I have always loved the look but might be too big)
Blackbay 58 (I have to pay a large down payment to even get on the wait list)
Blackbay 36 Blue (I like it but and I foresee no problem getting this anytime)
I like the OP39 and the BB36, but are they too similar to my OP36? The BB36 would add that splash of colour into my collection.
Or should I just say screw it and wait it out for a few years and get that Sub NoDate or BB58? Any other suggestions for smaller wrists?
I want to buy new. I got immense satisfaction pulling those stickers off my OP, and I want to be the one who puts the scratches and dings onto the watch.
Here is a picture of my OP36
