Opposite ends of the spectrum

Two of my all time favorite watches. If you follow me, you know how special my Rolex is to me, this is the watch that turned me into a watch enthusiast when I was just 5 years old. Back then I thought all watches were Rolex because this Reference 1603 1964 Datejust is the watch I saw my father wear the most. I'm now the third generation to own this watch. There is arguably no better proportioned watch than a vintage 4-digit reference Rolex.

Beside the Datejust is my trusty GW5600E-1 Shock square. This watch is the complete opposite of the Rolex in terms of price and also in terms of intended use & aesthetic. Lately I've been wearing the Shock a whole lot, there is something so cool about an extremely durable, affordable watch that can survive being run over by a truck. Also, although this particular version does not have multi band 6 it is solar powered which means I technically never have to change the battery.

These watches are complete opposites in almost every aspect but each watch is equally as cool and iconic than the other. Do you guys a pair of "opposite end" watches as well? Share them below 馃檪

Both are white dial mechanical automatic watches but they are the polar opposite because while one is stylish, thin and minimalistic the other...well the other isn't anything like that at all.

Thanks man, these are 2 of my favorites out of the collection. I think if you can鈥檛 enjoy an affordable watch as much as a higher end more expensive watch then you鈥檙e probably in this hobby for the wrong reasons love your 2 opposites!! 馃挴
