WuW Live: Rolex Explorer II 216570 vs. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Family?

Buy, Trade, or Sell your Watch Here: http://www.thewatchbox.com A user asks Tim Mosso and Nikolas Maldonado whether he should buy a Rolex Explorer II 216570 or one variant of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean family. While the Planet Ocean offers more selection of size, case material, and complication, the Rolex is an industry standard with only two real choices: polar white dial or black "Steve McQueen." As a hallowed name in the house of Rolex, the Explorer offers a better balance of prestige, substance, and enduring appeal. However, the Explorer II isn't the most common Rolex, so it avoids the common Rolex pitfall of being ubiquitous around the office suite. Ultimately, Tim concludes that the only way the Omega Planet Ocean wins this comparison is if the buyer prefers chronograph, a much larger case, a titanium or gold option, or a display caseback.
