I thought my perfect watch was a Rolex Sub...and true it was great.
For various reasons including the perception it gives to others about wearing a Rolex, I couldn't wear it much any more, so I sold it.
In the meantime this journey is taking me to other brands including Doxa, Seiko...and I am keen on Blancpain, JLC, etc.
Since my earlier decision I am now ok to wear Rolex again but I am looking for something less common - maybe a YachtMaster.
Like you I am still looking for the one :d
