Sure, the Ploprof is overkill for everyday use -- but if you like it, buy it. You (and me) aren't getting any younger.

    With regards to what to sell, you might delay selling any existing watches until you are sure you are going to keep Ploprof. If buyer's remorse sets in and you resell the Ploprof, you'll be glad you saved the watch you would have otherwise sold. The black dial (orange strap) version looks great too.

    I'm 58 and agree the Tudor "concept" watch realized at Basel is an ugly duckling I also find intriguing.

    You know, I really, really hated that new Tudor when I first saw it. But...I can't believe I'm saying this, but it's sort of grown on me. Like, it's so ugly it's kind of cool if you know what I mean.

    Anyway, I know I can look this up, but I'll just ask: what does that big orange button do on the Ploprof?

    '...sometimes ugly is actually beautiful..."

    That's what the wife thought of me when we first met :)
    ironically the opposite is true - sometimes beautiful is actually ugly

    "Liked" because I like your quote. I don't necessarily agree with the sentiment though. I'm still on the fence :)

    Yep, buy it....with 100% confidence; Zero regrets.

    Then back burner the Rolex...a while anyway. Sold my Rollie back in '89 when I was into ShinGunto and Nihonto. Sold one of those, bought a house, put some cash into renovations, flipped it, bought a chunk of farmland....got offered '$tupid money'....yeah.

    Keep the Tunas...Unless! someone offers '$tupid money'.

    That PO1 Tudor isn't bad...I just can't get over their hour hands..yuck. I'm a sucker for a 4 o'clock crown though.

    The original Ploprof sets the bar, the white and blue on mesh you're sporting certainly stands apart. That...would wear to any event, IMO.

    Best of luck with your choice.
