    Rolex Submariner Hulk vs. Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi 16710 (given the rest of the collection)

    Assume my collection is made up of only the AP Royal Oak Chrono, the Rolex GMT BLNR (Batman) and the Omega Speedmaster Professional. Which of these would you add to your collection next, and why? Assume both come with full box/papers, etc. I'm just looking for some thoughts and rationale given the rest of the collection I listed.
    Current collection:
    -Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph 41mm (Panda)
    -Rolex GMT Master II BLNR (Batman)
    -Tudor Black Bay GMT
    -Omega Speedmaster Professional

    Get the Hulk as you already have a GMT Master, and would you really want 2??

    Which ones gonna win the wrist battle??

    Am I allowed to vote for Pepsi+Hulk and get rid of Batman?

    If not, I'll take Hulk over Pepsi in your collection. No need for 2 GMTs.

    Haha, no. The Batman is a fixture and had sentimental value also.

    For what it’s worth, I don’t plan to go in the water with either watch and if I did it’d be because I fell in a pool or something unexpected like that, so I’m unlikely to be anywhere near the 300m mark.

    You’ve got a pretty diverse collection already, with a variety of case shapes, styles, and complications. If I were to add and was limited to these two options, I would go LVc in a heartbeat (and that’s coming from a guy who has two GMTs :) The “Hulk” would bring a lovely sunburst Green dial that I think continues to diversify and adds character to your unique collection.

    The Hulk is super flashy, is that something you would wear often? The 16710 is similar to the Batman in that it's a GMT, but very different in terms of case shape and bezel. The 16710 is more muted(non-ceramic) and is more of a tool watch that can also be switched to the Coke or vanilla black with a swap of the bezel, so basically 3 watches in one. If you can get the Hulk for MSRP, that's probably the route you want to take and add the 16710 at a later time.

    Well, the question is posed in somewhat hypothetical terms, so I won't take for granted that it exists precisely as stated.

    I'll go with the crowd and vote Hulk, unless you have a particular GMT fetish that the BLNR won't satisfy by itself. I like that one better than the BLRO anyway.
    Is it time for another coffee?

    It is my actual collection, but I also have a Tudor GMT in the collection.

    Living the collection as is the obvious choice would be the Sub to balance it out.

    Now, what I would do is the following as I don’t care for the hulk or Batman GMT much. I would sell the Batman, look for and buy a regular sub and the 5-digit GMT Pepsi.
