Should I trade up to get a GMTIIC?

I currently have a 14060m Non-COSC:

I just recently sold my Baume & Mercier Classima and came up on some cash. I was originally going to add around $400 to buy the Longines Moonphase I always wanted:


But now, I saw a great deal from a trusted dealer. He is willing to accept my trade plus more cash (around $3k or so) for a BNIB GMTIIC.

What should I do? Do I just have 1 Rolex or keep the sub and get a watch I was eying before I bought the sub? The reason I still wanted the Longines was cuz I can wear it with brown shoes or whatever.

Help me decide? Thanks!

Good choice.

OP, you should make the same decision.

I'd recommend going for the moonphase.
It's a beautiful watch and your heart is set on it.
The GMTIIc can come later.

The Longines first if that's a major consideration for you. A GMTc is easy to get later. Of the two though I would vote for the IIc.

I'd keep the 14060...its my favorite of all the watches you mentioned. There's no shortage of GMT2c's floating around these days.

Don't do it!!! Buy a timex, and send the rest of the cash to me for safe holding!


Seriously, the IIC is a great watch, and is super comfortable. You'll love the solid bracelet...great upgrade, as is the 1/3 link expansion.

Good luck!

I'd say keep your sub...its a rolex classic!

And go ahead and get yourself the Moonphase so you can wear it with brown shoes.

Keep the Sub, get the Longines moonphase and after that, get the GMT II C.

At this moment, I'm looking the same Longines for the same purposes. Good luck!

I'd do that if I could as well but since you ask I believe you don't really have the choice so I'm going to say this: I'd buy the Longines and then trade the Sub+add some cash for the GMT. Personally I'd get a GMT over any Submariner but I think that Chronograph looks way too good to let it pass so I wouldn't forget about it!

Absolutely! GMT-IIc is a definite "upgrade" on the 14060.

The Submariner was designed for diving underwater. The GMC was designed for world travelling. Two watches with different intended uses.
I do not consider the GMC and upgrade from the Submariner.

Sub for GMT c

I had the Sub 14060M a while ago. Mine was a 4 liner but still a great watch. Iconic it is. The only reason I sold it was because I had a hard time accepting the bracelet on such a high value watch.
So now I have the GMT 2c. Bracelet way way better. I prefer the maxi dial and the bezel is a joy to use compared to the Sub.
Though I'm not a cyclops fan but than can be fixed.
The clean lines of the Sub you have are fantastic. It really is a great looking watch.
The GMTc actually feels like an expensive watch. The quality is a serious step up over the 14060M .
That said $3000 to change doesn't sound like a great deal. Over here in the UK the 14060M sell for £2600 + and there not getting any cheaper.

Why? You know there are those who know, that would say the movement in the 14060 is the better movement.
