  • Latest model ! Gentleman’s 40mm Rolex Yachtmaster in 18ct Everose gold, model 126655 with “intense black” dial and Oysterflex strap / Everose Oysterlock clasp. Comes with Rolex boxes, Yachtmaster booklet, both swing-tags and international Rolex warranty card dated May 2021. It is in very good condition with only small signs of wear to the bezel, crown and lugs. The NEW RRP is now £25,300 but this is one of many sports / professional models that has been hard to obtain in the UK and residual prices remain strong. The strap will fit a man’s average wrist and offers a small amount of adjustment at the clasp, but if a different length is required and we don’t have one in the necessary size to swap, then we may have to order one or more rubber parts on an exchange basis. We would anticipate doing this at no additional cost, but there may be some weeks’ wait for such a part to arrive from Rolex.

    We cannot accept cash for items of such high value. Please ask for one of our watch specialists if you would like to view the watch in our private / secure sales facility or to enquire about acceptable payment methods.

Launched around the 60th anniversary of the very first Day-Date some eight years or so ago, it remains a current model — and with this dial an extremely popular one. It is in beautiful condition after spending much of its short life in various safes, coming with large boxes, Day-Date booklet, green swing-tag, five year guarantee booklet, our own warranty card  and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. The NEW RRP is now £36,400 and at the time of writing many secondhand dealers are asking a premium well above that for secondhand examples !

  • AVAILABLE TODAY ! BLUE DIAL, white gold “PEPSI” GMT-Master ! Magnificent 18ct white gold Rolex GMT-Master II model 116719 BLRO (an acronym for BLeu / ROuge, the French for Blue / Red). Comes on Oysterlock 78209 bracelet with the desirable DARK BLUE dial * and red / blue “Pepsi” ceramic bezel insert. In beautiful condition, having spent much of its life in our pawnbroking safes. Has Rolex boxes, GMT-Master II booklet and green swing-tag. The watch also came with what appears to be a warranty card from Sao Paulo dated January 2020, but some unusual features make us doubt the card’s authenticity and it is included with the sale only on that compromised basis. We do include with the watch a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. A NEW equivalent is now £35,600 — but often very hard to obtain !

    * Earlier examples of this model came with a black dial, but when a stainless steel “Pepsi” was released it looked too similar. For those in the know, the blue dial (introduced around 2018) ensures your white gold GMT won’t be mistaken as a “mere” stainless steel model !

  • Available today, still in service stickers and fresh from Rolex overhaul ! 42mm Rolex Sky-Dweller model 326938 in 18ct yellow gold with gorgeous silvery “sun-dust” / Roman numeral dial on Oyster 72418 bracelet. As with the Daytona, it seems that a Rolex with complicated functions can prove exceptionally popular. This yellow gold model was launched only in 2012 but its brilliant condition suggests this one may be more recent. Comes with large Rolex boxes, Sky-Dweller booklet, red swing-tag and Rolex UK service card dated August 2023 when it had a full movement overhaul and new glass fitted at a cost of £1,268. Ask for our Rolex-trained specialists Phil or Paul to discuss this watch with you. This is a complicated time-piece, but as well as having that precious instruction booklet (phew!) its new owner may also refer to the online user guide and video available on Rolex’s own website. The NEW equivalent is now £42,100 but even at that price point you may not be able to source one quickly. An additional, close-up photograph of the beautiful dial may be viewed by clicking through the main image.

  • Interesting and collectible white gold Rolex! 36mm Rolex Day-Date model 18039 in 18ct white gold with grey-brown “ghost” / diamond dot dial on President 8385 bracelet. The “ghost” dials (usually pale colours with white text) have seen increased collector interest in recent years. In very good condition, this 1980s watch comes with large “luggage-style” Rolex box, correct Day-Date booklet (itself now increasingly valuable!), our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. At considerable expense we have just fitted a number of new links direct from Rolex, but we do note that the dial is showing very slight signs of age and the glass is generic, NOT by Rolex. The 18039 introduced the “single quick-set” feature to allow easier setting than on previous versions of the Day-Date, thanks to its 3055 calibre movement. The NEW equivalent is now £35,800!

  • GENUINE ROLEX service / storage / travel pouch with folding press-stud flap and simple green watch-holder insert. Each is approx 12cm x 6.5cm when closed and is suitable for holding a single example of most models in the Rolex range. For a number of years these green pouches were provided by the service division of Rolex UK when they returned a watch to its owner. Many owners now use them as smart travel or storage pouches. They are pre-owned, but many have simply been in our stores since they came with a watch from Rolex. The price quoted is for a single pouch and we anticipate having a small number available from which clients may choose. A couple of additional, illustrative images are provided if you click through the main picture. Available from Miltons in Chester and Liverpool (St. John’s).

  • A gold and diamond Rolex for this price ? Gent’s 18ct yellow gold and diamond Rolex Cellini mechanical (i.e. requiring daily manual winding) dress watch model 4630/8 on integral fine Milanese / ribbon-style bracelet with impressive diamond bezel and 1601 calibre Rolex movement. This watch is in exceptional condition, coming with original Cellini box-set (the cardboard outer carton is very tatty and with signs of some repair, but the main box is splendid), Cellini booklet, hand-written Rolex papers from David M. Robinson dated 20th May 1988 in original green plastic wallet and a valuation from DMR dated just days later. This slim, wind-up watch (not an Oyster model) was intended for dress wear and is not water-proof. We certainly wouldn’t recommend it for everyday wear. It now seems to epitomise the flamboyant style of the 1980s, but further value here lies also in its accessories and the exceptional condition. The bracelet length remains that for a large wrist. While it has three positions for minor adjustment within the double-leaf clasp, we will NOT otherwise adjust the size of the bracelet. This watch could be considered by a collector or someone with a suitably large wrist who might treasure and wear it for a few very special occasions every year. Please ask to speak about this watch with Phil or Paul in the Miltons Watch Team, as both are former managers of Rolex main agents….who well remember the 1980s ! Close-up images of the set and watch itself may be accessed by clicking through the main picture. 526073
