Bicolour Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust model 1601(3) from around 1970 with silver / baton “pie-pan” dial. This name reflects the dial profile, its chapter ring edge dropping away from the central surface. The early style of Jubilee bracelet with folded metal links is correct, though it has been fitted with a 62510H service clasp at some point after 1990. Originally this watch will have been fitted with the softer, acrylic glass but it appears more recently to have been fitted with a third party (non-Rolex) synthetic sapphire glass. Typically these are harder wearing than the originals, though a vintage purist might wish to revert. Because of its age, we offer it with only a ONE year warranty and ask you to note : (1) we no longer guarantee these older models to be water-resistant (2) this 1575 calibre model correctly has no “quick-set” facility for changing the date at the end of a short month, so the wearer must turn the hands through 24 hours to advance the date (3) the bracelet and dial both show signs of age and wear (4) while running well, there is slightly more noise from the movement rotor than you might expect from a modern watch. Ask one of our Rolex-trained specialists, Phil or Paul, to discuss this watch with you. It is priced very reasonably to reflect all the above and comes with a generic presentation box, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them.£1,399 Stock number: 72-16-002

36mm bicolour Rolex Datejust model 16233 with champagne / baton dial, from the early 1990s on a later, steel bracelet.

Collectible Submariner with gorgeous, original dial! Stainless steel Rolex Submariner Date 16800, the “transitional” model with synthetic sapphire glass, matt black dial and quick-set 3035 calibre movement on Oyster Fliplock 93150 bracelet. This is a desirable model, especially when fitted with the early dial that does not have white metal surrounds to the hour indices. With a 7.1m case number this one dates from around 1982, a year or two into the model’s short production run. A very nice example of an interesting version (about whose future value many will speculate), it comes with old-style boxes, our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. We have lightly brushed the bracelet (which appears to be original to the watch, having date code G in the clasp and 593 end-links), but left the exterior of the main case and the glass showing light signs of wear as when the watch came to us. The bezel insert also shows moderate wear but appears to be original, the “pearl” dot having discoloured as expected. The new equivalent is now £6,550 but a watch like this increasingly has a market of its own.SOLD£4,899 Stock number: 52-14-028

UK watch, available today with BOTH swing-tags and NO silly nonsense about the warranty card being withheld*! Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II model 116710BLNR with black dial / blue and black ceramic bezel insert on Oysterlock 78200 bracelet (which still bears some of its delivery stickers). Nicknamed the “Bruiser” or “Batman” GMT by fans because of its distinctive bezel colours, this watch is in superb condition with negligible wear to the glass. It comes with Rolex boxes, GMT-Master II booklet, both swing-tags, bezel protector and UK warranty card. This shows supply was direct from Rolex London to a named individual in December 2014. Typically, this means the individual had some connection to the company. The NEW RRP of this popular model is £6,850 but this is one of several steel professional models that can now be very hard to obtain new, so we are selling it at a significant premium. Rumours are rife that production of this model (introduced in only 2013) may cease and that a different version with new movement will be released at the imminent 2019 Basel show. Almost inevitably, values have continued to soar. Clearly if you can find one at RRP then you should buy it. Good luck!
* 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.SOLD£2,899 Stock number: 52-14-021
