I tend to use a sliding scale on these types of things. As a general rule, the more mundane an item is, the more it can be dressed up without becoming ridiculous. The more "perfect" an item is, the less amenable it is to being dressed up.

A Sub is "perfect" already. Even if it is not perfect, it's been in production so long and is so accepted as the standard that changing it is a mistake. Add gold? No. Change the bezel to green? No. Rolex can change the movement or the bracelet clasp or tweak it here and there. But to change the watch fundamentally is a mistake.
