One more on help me decide, sorry but I need a push

So I am looking at my new piece, I have been fortunate to try many brands and always come back to Rolex as my main.
Currently on the stable:
SubC (no date, I know should not even mention this)
SS Daytona (black)
AP diver
JLC deep sea chrono

As you can see I love black dials, also important to mention I had a Explorer II (40mm) for 11 years as my only watch, before I let it go and start buying and trading different brands/models , thanks to TRF

Budget? That is a great question but I do want to keep it in the range of the options I have so nothing crazy for now :)

Budget-wise, I think you could get into an EXP II easier...if that makes a difference. It would be between the EXP II and the BLNR for me.

Explorer 2 best all around SS model that Rolex currently makes. I really do like the GMT2c, but it felt to me as a more flashy watch...maybe the ceramic. So as soon as I got the 42mm "polar", I couldn't take it off because I could wear it everywhere and not worry about it getting beat up and is this too flashy for everyday wear.....I did however like the GMT2c so much I up graded it to YG.

I like the BLNR best out of those choices.

I'm a fan of rotating bezels.

BLNR. You don't have a GMT and you could use a little colour.

How about selling a couple of those, not the Diver, for a gold GMTc or even the BLRO.

Having had a chance to handle both the Polar and the BLNR, my vote is with the Polar.
