Prefer the sub

Apples and oranges. I have a Sub with the ceramic bezel, I have sold my Seadweller and previous Subs for the ceramic bezel and larger plots (my LV sub did have the larger markers but no ceramic bezel or completely new clasp). Over the ears I have collected two 16520 A series Daytonas and two 116520 Daytonas. So as you can see, my Daytonas are keepers. That being said, if I had to choose one watch for everyday wear-> the Sub. The ceramic bezel and all brushed bracelet and clasp make it a tool watch that can be dressed up. Hope that helps. Hiro

I own both.

Totally different movements.

I may be weird, but I prefer a modern GMT over a modern Daytona.
If I was forced to choose vintage... That's another story.
The Daytona is just over-played in my mind.

To clarify, The Daytona is gorgeous. I enjoy looking at it but not wearing it (My Girlfriend wears it more than me). The GMTIIC is a great watch. It has the classic look but has all of the modern updates (Cermaic,SEL Links,New Blue Parachrom Hairspring,Triple Crown etc.)

A couple photos below:
The GMTIIC looks and feels great on a nato or strap btw!

P.S
Depending on the Daytona (Post 2000) it will have a Rolex in-house caliber 4130 movement as opposed to the Zenith El Primero 4030 Movement. If you decide to go with the Daytona, pickup a Zenith movement model---They are continuing to appreciate in value.

P.S

Mis-Read

I Own The GMTIIC

But, I believe the same. The SubC is a better everyday wear IMHO.

Love the Sub-C, rarely wear the SS Daytona because it is hard to see. Haven't wanted to sell it because it has its place in my collection.

Both are excellent pieces. I wear the SubC far more often just because it's more practical.

I had both, and totally agree that for a "daily wearer" the sub-c is more "appropriate" lets say with its brushed links and scratchproof ceramic bezel.

having said that the Daytona for me is a much more handsome piece and i totally agree that I love looking at it, but perhaps abit scared of wearing it.

It's a slim watch as well and has one of the best chrono movements outthere. I have since sold my sub-c but kept my daytona.

I have both, I wear my Sub C daily, working in engineering I need something pretty robust & the Sub seems bulletproof, a nice weight & sturdy case.
I bought my Daytona in January 2012 after wanting one for a long time, however after owning it for just a couple of months I was ready to let it go. Thinking about trading against a 00249.
Why this is, I'm not sure but I can only put it down to over hyping it in my own head?!
Maybe it was that only a few weeks after the Daytona I managed to get a 00372 which blew me away - that may have something to do with it?
IMHO Sub C.
Don't get me wrong, the Daytona is a lovely piece, but just not for me.

Good luck

You want a chronograph with no date and an automative racing history?

Or a Diver's watch with date and a dive watch history?

To just look at it as a watch, I would go for the Sub C as a daily wear because it has date, a higher WR rating, glide lock clasp and cheaper movement service in the future :D
