My favorite watch pimp is pushing a Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller on me.
Anyone ever own this watch?
Unless you like having a mini hockey puck attached to your wrist, my advice would be to pass on the DSSD. It wears very "large" due to the engineering needed to be waterproof to 12,800 feet.
If you're really considering getting a Rolex sports model, invest in a vintage version instead. You won't have to worry about the impact of bumps or scratches, you'd be hard pressed to ever randomly run into someone wearing the same watch as you, and they hold their value extremely well (as in, they continue to rise in value other than during the Great Recession).
