    Thanks @Nandyn I'll check them out.

    @ajs116 yeah, I did a fair amount of research trying to decide what style of Submariner I was interested in purchasing. After looking around at the different options and styles, my interests landed on this particular model of the 14060. Then it was a matter of price, availability, and of course finding the right seller. Just over two weeks in and no regrets!

    @Harry great looking watch!

    @DocDave eulit perlon looks awesome on classic designed divers. Worth the slightly higher price tag too. I love being able to put the tang anywhere for the perfect fit.

    1997 Rolex Submariner 14060. I decided to put the watch on a NATO to make it a bit more casual looking.

    What do you think about your sub compared to your Speedmaster? I know this is a big debate but would love to hear your thoughts.

    I bought the ceramic no date sub but realized it wasn't for me. I wanted the older 5 digit serial sub. I just happened to come across a NOS date version. Don't know if I would have preferred the no date version more, but I like the one I have just fine.

    There's not much of a debate. I'd say the Sub wins hands down due to having better proportions. This could be different for someone else who would have different size wrists. Besides that, they are 2 very different watches so it's hard to compare.

    This watch is my go to for four things. Running, hiking, skiing and activities where I think a mechanical watch might take too much of a beating.

    And the older cousin...
