1675, for its simplicity (obviousness?), its rustic character, its silver date wheel, the gorgeous shades of its vintage inserts. The most versatile watch imho.

My favorite might still be the 16710.
But right now I'm loving my new Fat Lady 16760.
Great balance between vintage and modern.

Cheers all, great shots.

Wow, this thread is mind blowing! Multiple times a day, I peruse the ads on this site looking for my next Rolex, which will be a GMT, probably Coke, maybe ceramic, can't decide. I also love the Root Beer, but want something else first, better suited for my work wardrobe.

Now I realize I should just give in and become a collector!

I spend a good portion of each day lusting over pictures of 1675s online. One day I will own one, but right now it seems like the Hodinkee influence has driven up the prices too high. What sells for $7,500 now was going for $5,000 two years ago, and I have a suspicion once the trendiness dies down the prices will come back down a bit.

My first love of Rolex was with the GMT II. Saw my first one when they were still selling them at Army base Exchange store. Never forgot about it. Finally got my first 16710 w/ the 3186 movt in 2010. Gave that to my son as a graduation present last December. Frankly my only dislike for the GMT II is the small crown.

Since I first saw a Rolex GMT on the shelf my favorite GMT has evolved. I have other GMT watches but the Rolex GMT II continue to be my favorite, so much so that I have the tt GMT-C and as of yesterday the BLNR. My next favorite GMT are a couple Omega SMP, one with a co-axial movt and the other w/o the co-axial.
