Tough choice. Id be happy with either but would probably go with the vintage.

Nice.

I tend to be stubbornly old-school... right up to the point of interaction with the new-school device... then, I’m just confused...

For me, it's a draw. New is great, but so is vintage (or well-kept pre-owned). Still thrilled to the max with my vintage Datejust, and always will be.

When it comes to the date version of the Submariner, the most reasonable thing would be the 16610. At least if it was me choosing.
The vintage date Sub, especially the "red" ones, are ridiculously overpriced for what they are. Meanwhile, the modern Submariner cases look kinda silly.
