For me, it would be the Daytona 500 and the LVC, unless of course you've got 7.5" or larger wrists, in that case I'd keep the SD43 and LVC, as the Daytona would fit relatively small for you!

These two are my favorites from the list.

(have Tudor Black Bay 36 for my "beater watch")

Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice


SD43 and Daytona C for me

Man I really wanted to contribute something useful to this post. But I canít see how I would get this done. I think that I could let go of either sd43 or Batman. But not both. And Iíd just end up adding a dd40. So Iíd only make it worse...

Sell everything but the Daytona and the Hulk and buy a WG BLRO with the blue dial.

For sure: - Daytona C - White Dial

Out of the rest it would depend on what you want. Do you like the way the SD 43 wears better than the sub? Do you like the bigger watch? Do you want a bigger watch to balance the smaller Daytona? Then SD43.

If the bigger watch is not as important to you, then picking between the green sub and the batman for me would depend on if I will use the GMT complication. If not then a nod to the sub. Do you want a fairly unique watch - another nod to the Hulk.

All in all, I can't really pick between those three as I like all of them for different reasons and it really depends on your lifestyle and priorities.

What an awesome collection. Had I to choose two, it would be the BLNR Batman and the YM.

Difficult choice and, to be fair, if I had your collection Iíd have trouble letting go of any.

I would keep the Milgauss and the Daytona. Milgauss is the funky Rolex you don’t see everywhere. Love the Daytona.

Batman and Daytona C. The reason is that the GMT may be the most versitle piece in the collection and gives you a date and gmt function. The Daytona as it is a chrono, is sportier, and is quite a different look. I ruled your other pieces out by prioritizing versatility which is key with a smaller collection. The SD and hulk become redundant with the GMT -letís face it you will likely not be diving past the depth that s gmt can handle anyway. The Milguass and yacht add nothing to the two I propose keeping.

Daytona and BLNR would be the keepers for me. No other reasons than they are my favorites. I have the White Daytona C and the only thing that keeps me from owing a BLNR is I have Pepsi 16710.

Yep. Very good advice!

OP, I would keep the Daytona and LVC. But sell slowly and be sure you have no regrets. I swap around a lot, but once in a while I regret letting one go and end up buying the reference again. 🤪
