Greetings watch geeks!
I desperately need your help — Rolex has been my narrowed down timepiece (I believe), but I included some runner ups.
Ultimately I want a watch that I can wear daily and pass on to my newborn son when the time is most appropriate. Here is where I need your expertise/opinion:
Details that might help:
-I wear a suit daily to work
-Looking for something I can throw on a different strap for whatever occasion (black leather strap for work, something more sporty/casual when I’m not in a suit)
-I love traveling (fully intend on traveling with my son as he gets older) AND of course wearing the timepiece while traveling and making memories
-My wrist measure 19.5cm or ~7.7in (I’m on the shorter end if that matter proportionately)
-looking for something made the year my son was born (2019)
Timepieces I’ve had my eyes on (some are not Rolex’s):
-Rolex Explorer 214270 (39mm)
-Rolex Datejust fluted or non-fluted (36mm)
-Rolex Cellini 50509
-Grand Seiko (SBGM235)
-Grand Seiko (SBGW031 or SBGW231)
-Tudor 58 (more sporty I suppose, so not sure this piece will be a good fit, but I like the proportions)
Obviously an investment, so looking for something that will be considered a classic and staple no matter what. Something that checks a lot of boxes. As much as I’d love to have a collection, it’s not something I’m actually striving for. I love vintage, but am leaning towards new.
Thank you for your help!!!
