Seamaster vs. Submariner

·

That damn helium valve nonsense and the hands ruin it for me.

This on the other hand...

this is great.

Submariner.  

Just can't take the helium valve on the Seamaster. Drives me crazy. It's as dumb as having the Formula 1 DRS on a Prius as standard equipment. 

There's like 50 people in the world that actually partake in saturation diving, and they use high-tech dive computers.

Does the helium escape valve bother me on the Seadweller? No, because you barely know it's there. It's not like Seamaster's valve that looks like the VHF channel knob on a 1970's TV.

Sorry for the rant, but I feel strongly about this. Ruins an otherwise beautiful watch... well, except for that ugly non-tapered bracelet... Don't get me started again. 

Now the Seamaster 300? Never saw one in person, but I'm pretty sure I'd love that thing.

·

Just the taper on the oyster bracelet 20mm to 16mm at the clasp wins this for me.   Great comparison 🤙🏽

·

Wow, omega making a comeback on this poll! 🥊

·

Seamaster. Great quality watch. I love that it has is own design language, and the fact that the bracelet and He valve seem to trigger some Submariner fans makes me love it even more.

All my sensibilities told me that I would like this more than the sm 300m. I was so surprised I preferred, and ended up buying, the 300m after trying them on at an AD.

Stupid that you can't change vote as my vote was for omega but once I touched one picture that's it !!!! Now I can't put it right 

·

I voted for the one that is worn by watch lovers.

·

Omega got all up themselves and priced themselves out of my pocket over the last ten years so my vindictive streak says Submariner. I couldn’t possibly afford either lol 😆 

·

I have both.  I love both, but definitely Submariner for me. 

·

Well that's closer than I thought. Subby all day long it's "practically perfect in every way"

Agree with you 100%.  The HE valve is tumor on an otherwise decent looking and unique design.  If they’d remove it, it would look a hundred times better.

Had to go Rolex, and I’m no massive Rolex fan!

I do have both and I`d always prefer my Submariner. Even though the SM is a stunner. But dial of the Sub is slightyl better finished and the bracelet....

·

As someone who accidentally clicked on the Sub I must state I am 1000000% a Seamaster fan and plan to buy one in the near future 

·

I really like the SM, but like many have said the helium valve throws my favor to the Sub, which I have actually seen on someone in real life, and what charm on that watch, I was shocked.

Seamaster, dial is fantastic and fun.   Dial on the sub is ... yawn ...
