This is just a thought, not a plan yet, but a dilemma πŸ™Š

 By: 1WatchMan : July 8th, 2019-09:30
I recently started to look at rose/pink gold in a different way, which is quite suprising to me, having only white metals (I'm not counting my old two-tone Hublot Classic which I barely use). I still don't see myself wearing R at work, so I think I should start with something on the sport side for the weekend and vacation periods. I'm currently on holidays, so it may be influencing my thoughts a little bit πŸ˜› Which one of these two would you choose and why? Thanks in advance! Some pictures from the past to illustrate, as I've already been flirting with them...

It’s the PP for me...

because, it’s just very cool.

That's a very good reason πŸ˜‰ thanks! [nt]

The Aquanaut looks fantastic on you and fits your wrist perfectly

While I have the utmost respect for Rolex, the PP is simply in a different league and well worth the additional cost, IMO. You should get it.


Thanks a lot Nick, much appreciated

I cannot argue that, and last time I tried it on (the enclosed picture) I definitely felt something special and totally unexpected.

I could have not phrased it better than NickO, the 5167R without any doubt for me as well...;-) PS: So far PP vs Rolex is 3-0, but in all fairness don't forget we are on the PP forum...:-) [nt]

Thanks Fab! I like the PP better, but the Rolex would add some diversity to the collection

You raised a good point, would be interesting to compare the result on the Rolex Forum.

They both look great but ... the PP for me as well

i saw someone in a suit wearing the PP and it looks great in suits and casual!

Thanks Yacomino!

I have to agree on that, I was wearing a suit when tried it on and looked stunning.

Def the PP for me . Not a huge Rolex fan . [nt]

I didn't use to be a Rolex fan, but liking the watches more and more lately. Thanks! [nt]

It would have been in rose gold, I would have told you to go for the Yacht Master. In white gold, I find it a bit weird... Maybe because I am not used to it? [nt]

Hey Nico, the Yacht Master in my picture is the 40mm in rose

 By: 1WatchMan : July 9th, 2019-01:03
The new white gold version is out of the equation πŸ˜‰

Aaah, in this case, Rolex for me. Damn cell phone screen. ;) [nt]

It makes 5-1 for the Aquanaut

 By: 1WatchMan : July 9th, 2019-01:13
But being the 1 yours, the score is not as unbalanced as it looks 😜
Btw, may I ask why you prefer the Rolex?

Hey, why does his vote count more?

 By: NickO : July 9th, 2019-02:27
He's just a contrarian Frenchman!  πŸ˜

Competition is still open!

As someone who has tried on both..

 By: roger.goodgion : July 9th, 2019-06:35
I think from a technical perspective the Rolex has a better bracelet, bezel and is more durable. The PP has a much cleaner dial and prettier backside.

Your pictures do not do the yatch master justice though. It looks much better in real life and I think is just reflecting back to much in the picture.

If price is no issue, go PP.
If you are going to bang it around on a beach, Rolex.

Just my 2cents

Thanks a lot for your sincere opinion

 By: 1WatchMan : July 9th, 2019-08:02
I agree with you and those are exactly the reasons why I am considering the Rolex.
And I must confess that, even though I love the 5167R a lot, the Yatch Master is a hair ahead in my personal ranking (it may change in a few seconds though 😜).

PP for me.

 By: @WatchesandWristshots : July 9th, 2019-10:15
Looks great with your jacket and shirt IMHO, I never have that feeling with jacket and shirt combined with Rolex sports models. Easy it gets too bulky IMHO.
The way one is dressed is ofcourse very personal so it's up to you. Go with what works for you.



Thank you H!

 By: 1WatchMan : July 9th, 2019-10:30
I agree, the PP works much better (by far) on the dressier side of the smart casual range.

The problem is that both work for me, but my wallet doesn't agree πŸ˜› And I haven't asked my wife yet to allow my dreams to last a bit longer 🀣
