Thread: Which watch

  1. #1

    Which watch

    If you had the choice of a rolex sea dweller or submariner with date both pre ceramic in stainless/black, which one and why, can't decide if I prefer the date bubble or not

    Is not the Dweller a much larger/chunkier case?

    not the pre ceramic there both the same size face but the sea dweller has a slightly thicker case/glass for higher depth rating

    Sub-date, with the 'cyclops' lens, every time.

    As said below the Sea dweller is a bigger case and not as 'discrete' to wear on a daily basis - shirt sleeves held back by it.......after hankering for one a number of years a close friend had one all of 3 days from new and then handed it back for a Sub-date.
    Date not as legible either - cyclops lens cannot be retrofitted.

    I was never a fan of the date bubble. Then again, I can't read the date anymore on the plain one.

    The "proper" solution is a "big date" watch with separate wheels for each digit:

    Of course I can't afford those, so I just struggle by without knowing what the date is. Maybe the bubble isn't so bad...

    Sea Dweller. If you can afford it, buy 2 and stick one in your safe, currently appreciating at about 250 per year.

    Why the Sea Dweller over the Submariner ? Far less common, chunkier on the wrist. Having had both I find the Sea Dweller sits on my wrist better, and not liking the date bubble on the Sub, I had to pay to get it removed.

    The Sea Dweller is a little chunkier than the Submariner, the Deep Sea however is seriously chunky, almost too big for the oyster bracelet.
