i dont like the Datejust personally. So many pattern, it dilutes the character. And in S'pore, I tell u, the biggest owners of datejust are the 50 plus auntie brigade. There are many many aunties who buy steel-gold datejust when they get their half a million pension with their CSC cards eg the teachers and the nurses. They are everywhere!

When he's 50+, he can buy something uncle looking then. I say enjoy your youth, buy something your age (ie assuming pew is not an uncle hee). I regret not getting explorer, it is half the price but has twice the character compared to my steel-gold blue submariner. I'm def getting explorer coming dec when i get my bonus heehee, unless I decide to get a thick gold bracelet instead heehee. Then I will buy the crystal apple from tiffany (abt 200 bucks) and when my friends come over, I will say, "Did u watch Love Generation?" Lol
For me, I find datejust ok so long as it is not two tone with fluted bezel and jubilee bracelet.

Between Explorer, Air King and Datejust, My fav would be the explorer (but I am very fickle minded, and explorer leaves me with no option to change) followed by Airking (I really love it's simple clean cut design) and lastly the datejust.

How bout the oyster perprtual no date? What is the difference between this one and airking? Seems to me like paying few hundred dollars more just to have the airking word removed
