I'd have the GMT OR the Sub. They're both black SS pieces that cover more or less the same ground. Many on here would disagree and own several of each. Personally, I'd consolidate and go GOLD.

I voted yes. It would be nice to add a diver to your collection and the 114060 is a modern classic

If you need a sub, why not a hulk or bluesy? You have a black GMT and exp. might add a splash of colour

I voted yes, however, only you know if a black Sub would make you feel better about your collection. It's a great piece, good luck deciding.

The 114060 is a great watch. It would fit in with most collections.

If you want it, then yes. Doesn't need to "fit in".

I had a very similar collection to yours a while back and added the Sub. I now think it was too redundant with 3 black dials.

If I were you I would look at the Exp II Polar or Black Dial....they are both more interesting watches than the Sub. Maybe even the blue dial YM or DJ41. If you add the Sub I would trade your GMT LN for a BLNR to get some more color.

I think the addition of the 114060 would be great for your collection...warning though, it's pretty mesmerizing.

Sub is needed. IMO it's number two only to the explorer.

The fact is that I don't like the whole sub thing a lot. It's like "I have to have it" not "I want to have it". Maybe I feel to like it because what people say about the sub. At the end of the day, it turns out that I don't like it that much and that's why I made this poll with the (wrong) hope that people will say "no". My all time favorite watch and grail is actually the Daytona: it wears on my wrist perfectly, it is a pure beauty; what I can do is wait more and have the 116500 with black dial.

Don't buy a watch if not completely in love with it.

If you said the date sub I would have said "maybe" but in addition to the 114060 being functionally different, the lack of date/cyclops makes it different enough from the gmt. Go for it!
