    Expected in stock late June : Brilliant example of a popular, short-lived model ! Stainless steel Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 model 116600 with black dial and ceramic bezel insert on Oyster Glidelock 97400 bracelet. Comes with both boxes, Sea-Dweller 4000 booklet, green chronometer swing-tag, UK warranty card from Fattorini the Jeweller in Harrogate dated August 2015 and a Rolex UK service card dated November 2019. Rolex fans were delighted when the company re-introduced an SD4000 into the range, after the bulk of the DeepSea 116660 version had put off so many ordinary buyers. The more practical size of this model, the lack of a sometimes-annoying “cyclops” magnifying lens and 60-minute marked bezel (a nod to Rolex’s military past) were instant hits. The NEW equivalent is now £11,650 (if you can find one….), but these discontinued models have a market all of their own.

    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.

  • The epitome of “stealth wealth” : 18ct white gold / ceramic Daytona, in excellent condition after spending much of its short life in a safe! 18ct white gold Rolex Cosmograph Daytona model 116519LN with smart “steel / bright black” / index baton dial, black Oysterflex strap and ceramic bezel. These models are just as likely  to be worn by gents or ladies now. Has large Rolex boxes, Cosmograph Daytona booklet, green swing-tag and UK warranty card from The Watches of Switzerland Group (Goldsmiths etc) dated September 2019. The NEW equivalent is now £28,100 but availability of many similar specification Daytonas remains poor, so we are selling it at close to that price — but look at how much others are asking ! The strap is currently small and allows minor adjustment, but if a different length is required we may have other rubber sections available to swap, or if not would order as necessary on an exchange basis. We would anticipate doing this at no additional cost, but there may be some weeks’ wait if a new length of strap has to come from Rolex.

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.

We would anticipate doing this at no additional cost, but there may be some weeks’ wait for such a part to arrive from Rolex.

It comes with Rolex boxes, Submariner booklet and UK papers card from John Pass the Jeweller in Crewe dated December 2005. In recent years buyers have shown their appreciation for the proportions and value of this earlier generation of Rolex sports models. We are selling it at a premium to the list price of the fatter, new equivalent which is now £8,050 — if only you could find one. This watch attracts collector interest, especially in such condition.

Comes with Rolex boxes, Submariner booklet, red chronometer swing-tag, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. This model was sold for around ten years from 2010 ~ 2020 and has for a long time been one of the most desirable. It is in excellent condition, our only point of note being the bezel “pip” which is cracked, although this is hard to see without magnification.

It has just had a genuine, new Rolex bezel insert fitted and is in very pleasing condition, but we do note moderate signs of age / wear, signs of repair to the Fliplock rivet and that the glass fitted is generic, not by Rolex — all factors reflected in this keen price. The larger, NEW equivalent is now £9,000 (if you can find one….) but the earlier models have proved increasingly popular in their own right.

  • Classic 1970s Rolex Explorer / Explorer 1 * with “Frog’s Foot” dial, FRESH FROM SPECIALIST ROLEX SERVICE by Steven Hale Watch Restoration Ltd. ! Various generations of stainless steel Explorer with their classic and easy-to-read black / 3-6-9 dials have been celebrated as the choice for adventurers. After a few early models like the 6150 (as issued to the Royal Navy Hydographic Survey), the Explorer model 1016  was introduced and during some thirty years in production this model earned its reputation as a classic collectible. This Rolex Explorer 1016 with 298xxxx case number has a case-back date-stamped for the first quarter of 1972. It retains its original “Mark 1” matt black / Arabic quarters “Frog’s Foot” dial, so called because the Rolex coronet is printed in a distinctive style that is reminiscent of a frog’s webbed foot. The dial is clean to the naked eye although with a 10x loupe one can find some tiny marks, and it has well-matched hands that we believe are the originals. The bracelet is the light-weight, folded steel Oyster 7836 with 358 end-links, in very nice condition. It has a Rolex 1570 calibre movement with unique movement number 236642 as illustrated in the photo-essay linked below. The movement is running well, testing at a gain of only a few second per day on average in October 2023, although this will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its mid case is in fine condition with lugs that have not been over-polished, the crown and bezel are excellent and the case numbering is crisp and clear. Offered with a genuine Explorer 1016 / 1655 instruction booklet (itself a valuable collectible!), Rolex “Green-Stripe” box-set (matching inner and outers ref 06.00.06), red COSC swing-tag, plastic document wallet and chronometer translation leaflet, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. M.S.Milton Ltd in Birkenhead bought this watch from an individual in January 2019. It lived thereafter unworn in our safes until April 2023 when we sent it to Steven Hale Watch Restoration Limited, a fully accredited Rolex watch-maker and one of the UK’s leading vintage specialists. The watch enjoyed £1,596 worth of work including a full movement service and the fitting of new glass, flush-fit ends, rotor axle, reversers, barrel, tube, upper crown and core. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here. This watch in its refurbished form will perhaps attract the discerning and discreet collector with an appreciation of Rolex’s 20th century history. Please note that while we have successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, we would advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered.

    * The Rolex EXPLORER in all its permutations (6350, 6150, 1016, 5504, 5500, 14270, 114270 etc) never featured the title “EXPLORER I” on its dial, but has often been referred to as that, since the introduction of the explicitly-named EXPLORER II. Through the years there have thus been many people who say we should not use the title “EXPLORER I”, claiming that no such watch ever existed. Frustrated with this, our Managing Director compiled research from the Miltons archives to prove that Rolex themselves have referred to the “EXPLORER I” for many decades — and his findings are often now quoted when the matter arises in internet discussion. If such detail is of interest to you, much of his evidence may be found by following this link.

  • 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 !

  • Bicolour Rolex Date Submariner model 16613 with blue dial and bezel insert on Oyster Fliplock 93153 bracelet. This early 1990s model comes with later Rolex boxes, YOUR ROLEX OYSTER booklet, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. It is in very pleasing condition, but we do note some signs of age / wear, both factors reflected in this keen price. Some of our watch team are rather excited about what they call the cardinal blue dial on this watch – it has mellowed with age and in some lights can display a pleasant, purplish hue. The NEW equivalent is now £13,750 !

  • A British Army helicopter pilot’s watch : vintage Rolex 1680 Submariner Date with Mark 2 dial, box & papers! Stainless steel Rolex Submariner Date model 1680 with 6152xxx case number, its original dial being in simply outstanding condition. First purchased by Captain “P” in Singapore during December 1980, this watch retains its original punched papers, plastic document wallet bearing a sticker with the watch’s faded case number on it, YOUR ROLEX OYSTER booklet with 1980 print-code, Rolex 68.00.2 box with slotted card interior and “Création Genève” motif inside the lid, a Rolex UK service card dated June 2002 and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. In early 2014 the watch was taken to a Rolex main agent who knew to direct the watch to us, and Miltons (Liverpool) Ltd bought it in February 2014. It lived thereafter unworn in our safes until April 2023 when we sent it to Steven Hale Watch Restoration Limited, a fully accredited Rolex watch-maker and one of the UK’s leading vintage specialists. The watch enjoyed £1,536 worth of work including a full movement service and the fitting of new glass, auto-drive wheel, rotor axle, reversers and barrel, while the paint on the hands was also restored. The black bezel insert was replaced previously and has what we believe to be a Luminova variant “pip.” The Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet with 501 B end-links has a “PJ11″ clasp code, indicating that this, too, is a replacement part from Rolex, probably not fitted earlier than 2009. The watch has a Rolex 1575 calibre movement, the bridge marked 1570 as normal, its unique movement number D856389 shown in the photo-essay linked below. The movement is running well, testing within chronometer tolerance in September 2023, although this will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its case, bracelet and crown are in very good condition but we have not refinished them, allowing them to keep the character reflecting the working life the watch has led, serving Captain P as a military pilot and then with his own helicopter charter company. The case numbering is crisp and clear, the bezel insert is excellent and the bezel rim is very good. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here .

    Please note that while we have successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, we would advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered. Many collectors of such vintage Rolex where the dial is a key part of the value wisely choose NOT to swim in them, as a simple mistake in securing the crown or any subsequent and unrecognised deterioration in sealing could see water enter the case, damage the dial and destroy significant value. If you want to emulate Captain “P” and take it up in your helicopter, go for it !

  • Vintage Submariner, FRESH FROM SPECIALIST ROLEX SERVICE by Steven Hale Watch Restoration Ltd. Stainless steel Rolex Submariner model 5513 manufactured around 1984 with 8673xxx case number. The watch features a “SWISS-T<25” tritium dial with white metal surrounds to the hour markers. These dials were introduced on new watches around the time this watch was made, but then also used as service replacement dials for any 5513s which needed them. Codes inside the case-back suggest that this watch was serviced by Rolex UK in Summer 1989 and early 1996. Miltons (Liverpool) Ltd bought the watch in January 2017 and in Summer 2023 sent it to Stephen Hale, a fully accredited Rolex watch-maker and one of the UK’s leading vintage specialists. The watch enjoyed £1,500 worth of work including a full service and the fitting of new tube gaskets, plexi glass, 4th wheel, auto-drive, rotor axle and black bezel insert (with what we believe to be a Luminova variant “pip”), while the luminous material on the hands was also restored. The Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet with 580 end-links has an “S X11” clasp code, suggesting that is a replacement service part that was fitted around the millennium. The rest of the bracelet shows some signs of age and wear, but this generation of Oysters was substantial and it has many years of reasonable wear left. It has a Rolex 1520 calibre movement which is running very well after service, although it will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its new glass and bezel insert are of course in perfect condition having just been replaced. The case, crown and bezel rim are in very good condition, while the case numbering is crisp and clear. Comes with period-correct Rolex 67.00.08 box-set and 1987 English Submariner instruction booklet (themselves being accessories of some value!), our own warranty card, a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them and a copy of the invoice from SHWR listing all work carried out. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here.

    Please note that while the watch has just been restored to Rolex standards and we have ourselves successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, our default position with such vintage pieces is to advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered. Many collectors of such vintage Rolex where the dial is a key part of the value wisely choose NOT to swim in them, as a simple mistake in securing the crown or any subsequent and unrecognised deterioration in sealing could see water enter the case, damage the dial and destroy significant value.

  • Vintage Rolex GMT-Master with original Mark 5B dial *, so-called PEPSI bezel and in outstanding condition, still in Rolex UK service stickers! Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master model 1675 from around 1978 with 557xxxx case number. It was most recently serviced by Rolex UK in February 2017 and was then bought by S.S.Milton Ltd in Chester later that year. Still in its striped service stickers, it has lived thereafter unworn in our safes. Extensive service history may be viewed in our photo-essay (see link below). The Oyster 78360 bracelet with 580 end-links has an “O1” clasp code, suggesting that is an early 1990 replacement part. It has a Rolex 1575 calibre movement, the bridge marked 1570 as normal, its unique movement number D724674 shown in the photo-essay linked below. The movement is running well, testing close to spot on for time-keeping in July 2023, although this will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its case, crown and glass are in excellent condition, the case numbering is crisp and clear, the bezel insert is excellent and the bezel rim is very good, if evenly worn. The bracelet shows some signs of age and wear, but this generation of Oysters was substantial and it has many years of reasonable wear left. The watch appears to have had little wear following the 2017 service by Rolex UK and since we bought it in September 2017 has simply sat in one of the Miltons’ safes! Comes with its original “sea-horse” Rolex box set (ref 10 001) with “50 YEARS OF THE ROLEX OYSTER” plaque, GMT-Master “clouds” booklet (itself rare and worth hundreds of pounds!), Rolex service slips from 2009 and 2017, further service paperwork from the Rolex main agent, Goldsmiths and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here.  Look at that beautiful, original dial with matching hands! Many more macro images may be viewed by clicking that link. Please note that while we have successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, we would advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered. Many collectors of such vintage Rolex where the dial is a key part of the value wisely choose NOT to swim in them, as a simple mistake in securing the crown or any subsequent and unrecognised deterioration in sealing could see water enter the case, damage the dial and destroy significant value.

  • One of the most wearable vintage Sea-Dwellers available! Stainless steel Rolex Sea-Dweller 1665 from around 1975 with 408xxxx case number and straight “ROLEX” text across the case-back. Yes, those in the know will realise that the case number and case-back style prove that this watch was originally an even more highly desirable “Double Red” Sea-Dweller, but in 2004 it was serviced by Rolex UK who fitted this new “Great White” service replacement dial with Luminova markers. They also appear to have fitted a new Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet with 585 end-links (its “S  DT4” clasp code identifying it as a service part, manufactured in April 2002). The main 1665 case and 1665 case-back both show the same, matching 408xxxx case number in full. It has a Rolex 1575 calibre movement, the bridge marked 1570 as normal, and its unique movement number D952xxx is shown in the photo-essay linked below. The movement is running well, testing on average to be + 4 seconds per day in July 2023, although this will vary slightly depending on the individual wearer. Its case, bracelet, crown and glass are in excellent condition, the case numbering is crisp and clear, the bezel insert is is excellent and the bezel rim is very good – we note a small bump on its inner rim, near the 3 minute marker. The watch appears to have had little wear after the 2004 service by Rolex and since April 2016 has simply sat in one of the Miltons’ safes! Offered with a period-correct Rolex box (ref 67.00.03), our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. It is interesting to note that the case numbers of this batch of 1665s appear to sit adjacent to a batch of rare Submariner 5514s made for the French diving company COMEX. A photo-essay of this watch with many more photographs is available by clicking here.  While we might have preferred that it retained its original and much more valuable dial, this watch in its refurbished form and with the extremely good bracelet offers much of the charm of a vintage Sea-Dweller combined with the smart look and wearable nature of a later model. Please note that while we have successfully tested water resistance for normal use including recreational swimming etc, we would advise that more extensive pressure testing be carried out before any significant underwater diving is considered.

    Our extensive research and record-keeping over many years leads us to conclude that Sea-Dweller 1665s featured the word “ROLEX” written straight across the case back on all watches with case numbers below c. 520xxxx, after which “ROLEX” was written in a conspicuously curved style. That same research allows us to determine that Double Red dials were fitted in Sea-Dweller 1665s until at least the high 529xxxx range of case numbers, after which they fitted dials with text all in white. More is written about this in our photo-essay, available through the link above.

This watch is in very pleasing condition, but we do note some signs of age / wear and that the glass fitted is generic, not by Rolex, both factors reflected in this keen price.

  • Very desirable model with this dial! Full size (40mm) gent’s Rolex Yachtmaster in Rolesium, model 116622 with Oysterlock 78800 bracelet. This watch comes with the desirable slate-grey dial with subtle, pale blue YACHTMASTER text and seconds hand. In very pleasing condition, it comes with Rolex boxes, Yachtmaster booklet, green swing-tag and UK warranty card from Aurum Group (Goldsmiths etc) dated December 2016. Lack of supply across the entire steel “Professional” Rolex series will mean that it should endure as a highly desirable piece. The NEW equivalent is now £10,500 but both versions remain very desirable, so it attracts a modest premium. Clearly if you can find a new one at RRP then you should buy it – we wish we could! Available from Miltons of Chester, under the famous clock.

    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. 566073-746273X

  • 2017 “BATMAN,” available today! Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II model 116710BLNR with black dial / blue and black ceramic bezel insert on Oysterlock 78200 bracelet. Nicknamed the “Bruiser” or “Batman” GMT by fans because of its distinctive bezel colours, this watch remains in excellent condition. It comes with both Rolex boxes, GMT-Master II booklet and international Rolex warranty card dated October 2017. This model itself was released in 2013 but its exceptional popularity and limited supply mean that it attracts a significant premium over the last new RRP and even that of its replacement, the 126710BLNR.

  • Extraordinary opportunity to buy an UNWORN example of this discontinued model from 2008, still in delivery stickers! A superb “four-line” Rolex Submariner with box, UK warranty card etc ! Stainless steel Rolex non-date Submariner model 14060M with black dial and bezel insert on Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet. This M-case number watch with four-line “SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED” text and numbered inner rehaut is one of the later examples of what has in recent years become an extremely desirable model. Earlier versions did not feature the additional SCOC text on the dial. It is in mint condition and comes with Rolex boxes, Submariner booklet, both swing-tags and UK warranty card from John Pass the Jeweller dated June 2008. It seems that the market increasingly appreciates the proportions and value of this generation of Rolex sports models. We are selling it at a significant premium to the list price of the fatter, new equivalent which is now £8,050 — if only you could find one. This watch attracts collector interest in its unworn, stickered state. Please note that removing the stickers and / or wearing it may reduce its value somewhat.

We are selling it at a premium to the list price of the new equivalent which is now £9,350 — if you could find one. A GMT-Master in “all-black” dial and bezel trim has not been offered for some years now, so this watch attracts collector interest in its unworn, stickered state.  Please note that removing the stickers and / or wearing it may reduce its value somewhat. Available from Miltons of Chester, under the famous clock.

  • 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).

  • Stainless steel Rolex Date Submariner model 16610 with black bezel insert and “SWISS MADE” dial on Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet. This A73xxxx case number watch from around 1999 is in very pleasing condition, although we do note some very minor marks to the bezel. It comes with Submariner booklet, later Rolex boxes, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. The larger, NEW equivalent is now £9,000 (if you can find one….) but the earlier models have proved increasingly popular in their own right. Available from Miltons of 36 Borough Pavement, Birkenhead Pyramids. Those interested in Rolex trivia may like to note that this watch’s case number suggests it was made in the same batch of 16610s from which a small number of special “Panama Canal” watches were drawn. Those Submariners (and, for the avoidance of doubt, NOT this specific watch) bore dials commissioned with a unique Panama Canal insignia in place of the usual text in the lower half and were then presented to the Canal pilots, to celebrate its passing from the United States of America to Panama.

A genuine “new old stock” bezel insert originally supplied by Rolex UK has been fitted. The watch is in very pleasing condition but with some wear to the bracelet and crown. Comes with Rolex boxes, GMT-Master booklet, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. The nearest NEW equivalent is now £14,300 but in recent years the earlier “Root-beer” has had a market of its own.

  • Daytona destruction! Who takes a good watch and messes about with it, such that it loses most of its inherent qualities and will now be almost unserviceable? We do not like the third-party, unofficial trade in “bespoke” pieces like this watch (originally a steel Rolex Daytona 116520), that seem designed for buyers with more money than sense or taste. The poor quality skeleton dial, failing bezel and generic rubber strap (not shown) all destroy value. Left alone, this watch might by now have been worth a five figure sum. Chopped apart and with inferior, non-Rolex parts added it will costs thousands to restore and its value in this form is a fraction of what it could have been.
