What’s this? A new section on Miltonaires for “Vintage and Collectible Rolex” ?  Yes, it’s finally here !

Miltons have built a commercial reputation for selling a fine selection of modern, pre-owned Rolex, but our Watch Team’s specialist knowledge and interest extends to vintage Rolex ( click here for more details.) For some years the international specialist collector / dealer communities have seen glimpses of rare treasures that the various Miltons companies have negotiated to buy or take in part-exchange from other collectors, private sellers, former professional divers, other jewellers, auction houses, estates and so on. Some of the treasures we currently hold are SEVEN Comex Submariners and Sea-Dwellers, even more UK military-issue 5513 and 5517 Submariners, a few Submariner 5508 and 6536/1s, a host of 5513 Submariners with various gilt or otherwise interesting dials, red and white Submariner 1680s, a 16800, Double Red and Great White Sea-Dweller 1665s, a couple of GMT-Master 6542s including one with its original Bakelite bezel, EIGHT GMT-Master 1675s (including gilt dials), a GMT-Master 16750 and a SeaKing 116710LN, FIVE Explorer 1016s (1 gilt dial), THREE Explorer 5500s, an Explorer 14270 Blackout,  FOUR Orange-Hand / “Disco Dial” 1655 Explorer IIs, THREE Milgauss 1019s, a Cosmograph 6263 and a Royal Navy Clearance Diver DSSD 116660.

Our intention is to start actively marketing those of which we have most examples at the more reasonable range of value — so you might expect to see 5513 and 1680 Submariners, 1675 GMT-Masters, Explorer II 1655, Explorer 1016 and similar watches, which we hope to roll out from mid-2023 as they are readied for sale. We are currently having a number of watches serviced by a major and well-known Approved (and vintage specialist) Rolex watch-maker in preparation for sale.

Would we sell some of the mega-pieces in our collection? Well, they say everything is for sale at the right price !

The watches in the attached pictures will not all be immediately available, but they give some indication of the interesting pieces to come.

In the meantime, you might like to take a closer look at some interesting old Rolex among this selection of photo-essays : click here
