Dilemma continues: whats your take pls?

Hi all,
If you have a bluesy (116613LB TT blue submariner) does it makes sense to add a Batman, considering that you already have a full Blue faced watch? I am undecided if i should buy the Batman or go for an entirely different watch - Milgauss Z Blue?
Thanks for your thoughts.

I see no problem with having a sub and a GMT in a collection. They look and feel pretty different to me. Especially a TT and a SS duo. I’d say go for it!

Sub vs Gmt, TT vs SS, Blue vs Black, how much more difference to ask for?

IMO


If the 116613 is currently your only, I would get something with a different look. In a two watch collection, the Sub and GMT look too similar. You could add a GMT later.

Seems like you like, and want, blue in your next watch, regardless.

If you're not wedded to getting a GMT complication for your next watch, the Milgauss might be a nice 2nd watch (if you want to stay within Rolex) to mix it up.

It will be (IMO) easier to decide in the morning which watch would make more sense to wear, depending on your plans and attire.

Different watches. If you like the BLNR, buy it. I have 5 subs and don't care what people think. If Rolex comes out with a platinum sub, I'll have 6.

I had both, simultaneously. I saw no problem and found them sufficiently different.

For entirely other reasons, I ended up selling both... so there's that.

Kinda feel that the z-blue is very similar to your sub as they both have the blue dials.

I think they make a great pair. Of course, I do have a thing for blue...

All are great watches, but personally I think I'd want something that looks a little different. Given that they have the same basic design and would both be blue, they'd be a little too close for me.

If you travel a lot then the GMT could be useful. Otherwise the Milgauss blue is a flawless choice. In my opinion of course.

Do you want a GMT watch?
