Was not impressed with FPJ, have seen various models. The movement is nice until you compare it to a lange, which is much better finished once you start taking out your loupe.

I vote Rolex, the DD is a much better allround watch.

I suggest to also look at Lange Daymatic, their version of Day-Date.

Interesting point coming from a watchmaker!

You're choosing between the most expensive Mercedes on the market, or an Aston Martin. Which do you think you'll enjoy most based considering the other watches you own?

What VC do you have and how much wrist time does that get against the Sub and DJ?

Looks like you’ll be able to wear the FPJ Monday through Friday so it won’t struggle to be picked or be seen.

I would go with the DD; more versatile as many have said.

Cheers

DD40 in Rose or Yellow is a bit too flashy for my taste. I would only get a Rose Gold or Yellow Gold watch on a strap.

Everyone’s style is different, can’t really comment to that. I have a Journe CS in Platinum that I love, although a White Gold DD40 is an amazing daily watch.
