    I went with a no-date sub because a) I knew I'd never be able to read the date without my glasses and b) I don't wear the sub often enough to keep the automatic movement going. So I'd be constantly updating the date window whenever I wanted to wear the watch.

    I have date and no-date subs in the box and enjoy them all. Like motosacto, I probably favor the no-dates due to their clean lines and deep history, but both styles are classics. You can't go wrong with either. As andrewrg says, go with the one that makes you most happy.

    I've never owned a watch that cost more than $200, but I can see both sides of this question. On the one hand, pun intended, if you wear the watch while diving, the most important piece of information you're getting by looking at the watch comes from the bezel. You don't need to see what day it is, just how long you've been under. If you wear the watch in the office, you probably check it a few times to look at the date when you're filling out paperwork or planning ahead on the calendar.
    On the other hand, the story is that the head of Rolex at the time wanted the oyster case to look great underwater and also on land, i e in everyday scenarios. So it's probably not a tool only watch.
    My opinion is do what makes you happy

    From a practical point of view, watches are mostly jewelry - your computer screen, your phone, your tablet all show the date. If you’re actually diving, you probably don’t the date either, right? So which one do YOU think looks better? As for me, I’m a no-date guy when it comes to tool watches....

    It's getting warm, finally put the mesh bracelet back on this guy.

    Since this thread hasn't had an entry in 10 days, here's another that I may not have posted before.

    I'm a long-time Tudor fan. I was very excited when the company reintroduced the brand in the US 8 years ago. The first generation Black Bay was everything I'd hoped it would be - an all around great watch. It gets a lot of wrist time.

    Ha! I'll do what I can, but the collection certainly isn't that spectacular... just full of overflowing watch boxes

    In a nod to DocDave , here's one that I don't believe I've posted here before. It's the JLC Navy Seals Master Compressor. It has a rubber-coated titanium bracelet and all in, it's one of the most comfortable watches that I've worn.

    Thanks much Doc! I try to keep my posts here reflective of what might be considered the "Dappered" portion of my collection. By that I mean price-performing watches that provide a lot of bang for the buck.
