    Rolex 14060M.

    If they still made it with an upgraded bracelet, I'd be tempted.

    Any of the blue-on-blue Tudor Subs. Snowflake, or the more traditional dial and handset (like Jeep99Dad's magnificent example)....doesn't matter. These just make me feel all fuzzy and warm inside, and a little weak in the knees.
    Second place would have to be the Rolex 5513, especially the 1960/70's version with domed acrylic crystals.

    Alas, I'll have to make do with this for now:

    It's a great little watch with cracking lume, and has been getting quite a bit of wrist time, lately.

    Favourite Sub? The one that I've wanted since the Summer of '74 ( or was it '75?) and finally got a couple of months ago; a 5513.

    A modern 14060M would be my only other alternative, as far as Rolex go. As for homage versions, the MK II Kingston or Nassau, Raven Vintage Sub, or a Squale 20 Atmos Militaire. Those ones are close in size to the vintage Sub. Steinhart do some great homage watches, but their sizing jumps up a couple of mil.

    While I own a couple of dive watches, not a huge fan of the sub style.
