Which Rolex Tudor combo do you prefer?

Not sure how to make a poll on this app so I’ll just hear opinions!

This ones a tough one, which Rolex Tudor combo would you go with

Rolex SubC date / Tudor BB GMT

OR

Rolex BLRO / Tudor BB 58

The latter. Easily. If it were me, I'd save a little more and just go Sub/BLRO and forget the modern Tudors.

I’d do the Rolex Sub ND and the Tudor BB GMT. Not a fan of cyclops.

BLRO and BB58, but out of all 4 the Sub is still my favorite. I pass on the Tudor GMT bc of the issues with the movement.

My combo is Tudor Black Bay Black 79220N & Rolex GMT Master II 16710 - all 3 bezel inserts. Perfect 1-2 punch for me!
Cheers

This combo is IMO the best!
The Tudor GMT has more vintage feel than Rolex BLRO. Actually BLRO feels a litlle plastic because of that strange red colour.. Tudor GMT has some of that ”old Rolex” feeling. The bezel in Tudor is amazing—I happen to love it!

No pic at the moment but Lovin the Pelagos and DSSD! They each represent the most pure and capable diver of the respective brand!

Rolex BLRO / Tudor BB 58
Both are beautifully proportioned and do what each does best.

Cannot get these off my wrist . For me, these two are outstanding daily drivers and my other watches fill in the cracks .

The only Tudor I really loved was the Black Bay 58 and that's what I ended up with.

Still waiting for a BLRO..... Some day

BLRO and 58. The Sub and 58 is a bit redundant to me given that you end up with 2 divers.

SubC and Tudor GMT. Swap them out regularly. Best combo, I think.
