depends on budget.

even explorer 1 214270 already above 10k for brand new.
however the 114270 still affordable, way better buy than the op39.

if you have more than 10k budget, used sub/sub date your best bet.

below 10k, if die die want rolex, explorer 2 polar 16570 (still floating around below 10, no box and papers)
explorer 1 like you mentioned.

i just feel for starters, you never know what you actually like till you own it, so getting these rolexes would be a good starting point and if you want to sell it, it's pretty easy and you don't take a big hit.

my first rolex was a 16610, traded for a 1680, went back to 114060 and.... lol now left with SD4K only.
appreciate the advice ,not sure if i should get a prewoned one without B&P since it is harder to sell it later on or few years later if I upgrade. I know there are people who wont buy a rolex without B&P for non vintage models.

Really depends.
People are always willing if the price is right.

Never expected myself to buy a Zenith watch. I love how fitting it is and the titanium bracelet is really beautifully done. Feels very light on hand due to full titanium used.

My friend got himself a Omega Sapphire Sandwich. Heard omega is coming out an improved model next year. Current model out of stock everywhere.

All these model can't be bought at AD price. Unless you want to pay a premium for it.

depends on budget.

even explorer 1 214270 already above 10k for brand new.
however the 114270 still affordable, way better buy than the op39.

if you have more than 10k budget, used sub/sub date your best bet.

Was in omega today and the sales recommended me a moonwatch.

Isit worth to buy? Manual wind though. Kind of interesting
