    14060M 2 liner for me, last of the greats IMO

    very good advice, a late 14060M is the best of both worlds, classic rolex with a decent movement, iím guessing itís likely to be a 4 liner too

    I totally agree with you. I would definitely get a 4 liner too. I feel the 2 liners make the dial look sparse.

    Considering picking one similar to Vince's off Chrono24 (no VAT to NI).

    Am concerned the sparkly ones aren't all original and have been polished. Should I be?

    Clueless when it comes to Rolex.

    Cracking watch
    If I was in the market that would be in my thoughts.

    Been doing my internet research (passes the time) and am now trying to choose between a two line 14060M or a 14060. Was quite unoccupied by such thoughts 24hrs ago.

    Bloody watches!

    Seen a few 'NOS' examples that all seem to have emanated from the East. I'm not sure if they're polished to high heaven or whether they just tend to take better care of their watches.

    Iíve owned both and preferred the tritium 14060 - but the difference is minimal between the later 14060s and early 14060M.

    Canít go wrong

    Thanks to you all for your thoughts and suggestions.
    I appreciate that for the purists amongst us, a non date Submariner would be the obvious choice.
    But if I am to try and replicate the one that I first owned, than it will have to be the date version.
    Besides the BB58 which I purchased when they first came out 3 yrs ago to celebrate my 60th birthday, fulfils my no date timepiece.

    I have owned them all (5-digits) and I still own SD and Sub Date.

    Sub no-date 14060: Flat, feels definitely less substantial than date 16610

    Sea-Dweller 16600: Thick, high, feels "narrow" due to smaller dial.

    Sub date: To me it's the best. Flat, feels more substantial than no-date and actually wears better and bigger on a bigger wrist because the dial is larger and the presence is not as high as on SD.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my SD but Sub date wears better.

    Here are the dimensions.

    That's perfect. Even has the correct serif flat 4.
