I would, except it doesn't say Japan Movement on the face, and I have only worn my other Seiko 5 about 10 times. I just didn't like the smaller face.

I love the sub simply because its green and not a lot of people have it. If I had to choose one Rolex it would be the GMT IIC (better all around watch, dress up or down). I dont like the Daytona - it doesn't feel planted on my wrist the couple times i tried it on. The FG sub (YG blue face) is to die for tho, hefty.

Sorry I only have my ipad with me for pictures...currently traveling w the Hulk.

Great watch, I love the dial but I dont think I can pull it off. I'm more conservative with what I wear and I'd rather have a black or white dial that can wear with most of my clothes. However, if I had the extra money, I would really think of getting one.

The cheaper watches I buy are for fun and I could sell them with no issue. The nice watches I buy I'm not looking to move or flip so resale value doesn't register as a buying point in my decision.

Rolex has done well with marketing their brand by manufacturing a premium status for themselves.

There are a couple models I wouldn't mind having but they're out of my price-range (as long as they had a solid bracelet, can't stand two-toned bracelets) . I rather get 2 Omega's vs 1 Rolex if given a choice.

I'm dying for an Explorer II (black face). It's the perfect watch in my opinion. I just have to come to terms with separating myself from $8k.

You can get them for around $7k from a reputable used dealer.
