"This will probably divide opinions, however if you are looking to buy either of these two watches, it is hard to go wrong. Some key things for consideration between these two watches:
- • Prices between the two at retail is relatively the same, and if buying the Snowflake I advised to buy used simply for the fact that it takes a hit when worn and you can scoop them up at much less than retail.
• The Snowflake dial is just incredible, and compared to the OP its not even a close comparison.
• The OP is better on the wrist, with the refined lug design, and Oyster bracelet being standouts.
• I think that the Rolex will be a little more versatile, and suit a wider range of occasions.
• Spring Drive does provide better accuracy, and sweeps the seconds hand smoother than any watch out there, however is not a 100% mechanical movement.
Preference to what you like will be purely personal.
Whatever your preference, we all have different wrists, opinions and preferences, which is what makes this wonderful world of watches so good. Variety is the spice of life.
"As previously mentioned, I have also compiled a set of macro images which will give you some indication of the finishing and details on a variety of watches. Ill keep adding to this box, over time."
