    The Submariner will always be the ubiquitous diver of all dive watches and that's including the Fifty Fathoms in terms of prestige as well as recognition.

    End of story

    And I would buy the Rolex.

    Simply put, the Rolex Sub is the better brand and more iconic while the Omega Seamaster is the better watch (at least, until the new version comes out).

    The Sub, doesn't matter the generation, has staying power. The Seamaster, however, does not. When the new one comes out, you'll want to upgrade because it doesn't have that iconic timeless design going for it.

    If you want the better watch, choose the Omega. If you want timelessness, choose the Rolex.

    More prestigious is Sub. Nicer watch is Sub. However, if one has trouble acquiring the Sub or (in the case of me) wants to try something else, the SMP is the ONE.

    I had a ND SubC for two years and sold it at Christmas (because it was a little too similar to my 2019 BLNR).

    I wanted a replacement that would be a better “knock around” watch for boating, pool, and beach when I didn’t want to wear/worry about my GMT. so, 6 days ago I picked up the white SMP ... and it is very nice!

    If I could only have one watch between Sub or SMP ... I’d take the Sub. But in my situation (2019 BLNR, 2019 DJ41, 2019 Daytona black, 2019 TH Monaco), the SMP is better.

    Here’s videos of my SMP and Sub...

    For prestige, as already mentioned, the Sub's the choice. The Seamaster, iconic in it's own right, having been introduced only a few years following the Submariner, is also an excellent choice. I would recommend both, lending decision-making to a number of other, individual to the buyer, factors.

    Hard to compare the two considering there’s a two to one price ratio between them. Obviously in terms of prestige the Sub wins out because it’s a Rolex, but in terms of value for money, the SMP is the clear winner.
    I personally am not a fan of the 6 digit Sub’s aesthetics, while I really like the looks of the SMP. If it were only a bit smaller...

    Not withstanding design or prestige matters, some features can be pointed out:

    Submariner:
    Better bracelet
    Better service intervals (10 years vs 5 years)

    Seamaster:
    costs less than half of the Submariner as it is readily available for 25% off MSRP new (circa 3600€)
    Exhibition case back

    That said, I have considered the purchase of the black Seamaster, but having the other contender makes it difficult to justify the purchase.

    Have owned both even recently. Prestige clearly to the Sub.

    Submariner is still the better watch. I don’t mind the SMP but anyone who’d take it over the Sub assuming they don’t have other alternatives like Doug states in their collection has rocks in their head.
