A lovely set in fine condition, the watch comes with Rolex boxes, correct Submariner booklet, UK warranty card from Aurum Group (specifically Watches of Switzerland on Oxford Street, London) dated August 2008, both swing-tags and the Sea-Dweller accessory pouch holding bracelet adjustment tool (# 2100), extension link and Buehlmann decompression table.

The cheapest NEW Sea-Dweller is now £8,700…and that’s if you can find one!…but these classic, earlier versions have a massive following in their own right.

  • Stainless steel Rolex Explorer II model 16570 T on Oysterlock 78790A bracelet with black dial. This G39xxxx case number example is one of the last of this model made (indeed, the model 216570 which ultimately replaced it was introduced with case numbers lower than this!).

  • Stainless steel Rolex “Pepsi” GMT-Master: 3175-calibre model 16700 from around 1993 with black dial and blue / red bezel insert, on Oyster 78360 bracelet. Comes with Rolex boxes, GMT-Master booklet, undated international papers and a Rolex UK service slip from April 2009. It would appear that the hands have been replaced at service, but the original SWISS-T<25 dial has been retained, now with beautifully mellowed tritium in the hour markers. There are a few, light signs of age and wear but this is a highly desirable model, extremely wearable and among the cheapest in the UK which still have their original papers.

    The range of NEW GMT-Masters now starts from £6,450 but these older models have increasingly developed their own following in recent years. The halo effect of the almost-unobtainable new “Pepsi” 126710, which on the secondary market is currently selling for around twice the new RRP, should not be under-estimated.

  • October 2018 watch, available today, UNWORN in delivery stickers with BOTH swing-tags and NO silly nonsense about the warranty card being withheld*! Latest 39mm model of the classic Rolex Explorer, ref 214270 with black 3-6-9 dial on Oysterlock 77200 bracelet. Comes with both boxes, Explorer booklet, both swing-tags and international Rolex warranty card dated October 2018. Like many of the steel Professional range, this is not always a watch that can be found in stock at main agents. We are selling it at a small premium to the NEW RRP, which is now £5,000.

    While their clients have to wait months or years for certain models in the stainless steel Professional series of watches, some Rolex main agents are now stripping new watches of delivery stickers, keeping the numbered swing-tag and refusing to supply the warranty card until a year or more after sale. This is an attempt to hinder the premium resale or “grey market” in the watches which their very lack of supply causes.

  • Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II model 16710 with original black “SWISS – T < 25” dial on Oyster 78360 bracelet. The 16710 was available with different bezel options but this one has just been fitted with a “new old stock” version of its signature red black insert, known as the “Coke” bezel by collectors. Having a case number in the S4xxxxx range, this will be a circa 1994 watch. At that time the plain Oyster bracelet was a standard option and the “S10” clasp code on this one denotes October 1994 manufacture, indicating that it is original to the watch. Showing a few signs of its age, it comes with its original GMT-Master booklet and numbered green swing-tag, Rolex boxes, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. The cheapest NEW equivalent is now £7,150 but these earlier models have increasingly attracted a following of their own.

  • Collectors, are you ready?

    2004 / F-case number “Anniversary” Rolex Submariner Date model 16610 LV, with Mark 1 dial and FLAT FOUR* bezel insert! Fresh from Rolex UK service, in service stickers with box & original papers etc! This stainless steel watch is an F61xxxx case-number example in excellent condition with both boxes (outer stickered “16610”), both “Your Oyster” and “Rolex Submariner” booklets, both swing-tags (the green specifying “16610LV”), original Rolex papers from Dubai dated October 2004, Rolex calendar card 2005/2006, novelty anchor, bezel protector, the Rolex UK service card dated August 2018 and original invoice for £981.35 (both also specifying that it is a 16610LV). The dial may be identified as the Mark 1 most easily by looking at the wide “SWISS MADE” text at 6 o’clock. The bezel insert, glass and crown have all been replaced at service. Correctly, this version has a plain, un-numbered inner rehaut. The new equivalent has just increased to £6,950 but these older models have been increasingly sought after since they were discontinued some years ago. Please ask one of the Rolex-trained specialists in the Miltons watch team to discuss this watch with you. Further photographs including a macro-lens close-up of the figure “4” may be seen by clicking through the main image.

    * The so-called “Flat Four” (or “Fat Four”) bezel inserts are identified by looking closely at the figure “4” in “40” on the bezel insert. If the shape of the green area enclosed by the body of the four has a flat top, as here, then it is a “Flat Four.” If instead it comes to a point, creating a trianglular shape inside the “4,” then it is a “Thin Four” insert. Do not confuse the important, internal shape with the external top-line of the figure “4” itself, as the latter is flat in all versions. The “Flat Four” inserts have become increasingly sought after by collectors, having apparently been produced for only a short time and fitted to the earliest examples of this model, specifically Y to F case number watches circa 2004. If owners lost or damaged one of those original inserts, it would previously as a matter of routine have been replaced with a “Thin Four” insert. What is extraordinary here is that the “Flat Four” insert was supplied and fitted by Rolex UK in 2018, long after it is though such inserts had all been used up. Close examination shows that this may be a new version of the “Flat Four,” marginally different in the subtlest of ways from the early ones. Is it a newly-released service part? If so, will it be fitted to all 16610LVs, or only those early examples like this for which a “Flat Four” would be correct? Not wishing simply to sell such a desirable piece without disclosure or comment about this unusual part, I started discussions on two specialist watch fora, both of which you can read with single clicks here: 2018 “Flat Four” discussion on tz-uk and here: similar discussion on rolexforums. At the time of writing it seems no one is certain what to make of it. Is it an old part that we were just lucky to be given? Is it a part that they can release to owners of correct, early LVs that would have had a “Flat Four?” Is it instead a new, standard part that will be fitted to all 16610 LVs from now? What effect will that have on values, for both early ones that should have such an insert and later watches which correctly did not? We cannot know, but invite potential purchasers to follow as much due diligence as we have. Reflecting the uncertainty about Rolex and this hitherto-unseen insert, we are pricing the watch for a little less than if it had one of the circa-2004 originals.

  • Gent's 18ct yellow gold Rolex Yachtmaster model 16628B with WHITE dial on Oysterlock 78768B bracelet. Comes with 16628 box-set, Yachtmaster booklet, our own warranty card and the Rolex UK papers from a £916 service / new glass, crown and spring-bars in 2013, after which it has not been worn! The case even retains its service stickers – our previous client simply asked us to store it for him in our safes. Please note: this watch has its U940xxx case number presented between the lugs at six o'clock in what we consider a slightly unusual style. We drew this specifically to the attention of Rolex UK but they have been happy to accept it for service and record that number as being correct. The bargain price reflects the fact that the bracelet shows signs of denting, repair and metal staining. The last NEW RRP was £20,800 . . . and most of the range has increased in price by about 10% since then!

Please contact the Miltons watch team in the Liverpool St. John’s store for more details.

    N.B. As working on Daytonas is highly specialised, we do not offer a dial-fitting service in this instance; any buyer will need their own, competent and willing watchmaker.

  • Superb example! Stainless steel Tudor Heritage Chrono model 70330N with black / grey dial / orange accents on Tudor 95740 bracelet / alternate “orange stripe” nylon webbing strap, included. This beautiful watch has spent much of its short life in our safes and remains in outstanding condition. It comes with original boxes, numbered red swing-tag, international warranty card dated 2010 and booklet (in French). More details about the range and this model may be found on Tudor’s website here and a specific user guide (essential) can be downloaded from that page. The NEW RRP is now £3,160. Please ask to speak with one of the Tudor specialists in the Miltons watch team: Phil or Paul.

    Tudor has for many years been celebrated as Rolex’s “lower-price-point” brand, but it now attracts many followers in its own right. This particular model is one of several recent launches which very successfully pick up design features from popular models of the last century. In some cases those older watches are now worth a multiple of the price of a new one!

  • 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.
