  • 31mm / mid-size Rolex Datejust in 18ct yellow gold, model 68278 with decorated, golden Mother of Pearl * / roman numeral dial on President 8389 bracelet. The watch has also been fitted previously with a custom-made diamond-set bezel, NOT by Rolex. As loyal devotees to the Rolex brand we are not great fans of customised pieces and will not supply such parts on customer request, but when our pawnbroking departments are left with one already fitted like this there always seems to be a queue of buyers! Comes with Datejust booklet, UK papers from Watches of Switzerland dated June 1999 and a later Rolex box. It is in very pleasing condition, the bracelet showing only moderate signs of age / wear. The last time a NEW equivalent was listed in the Rolex UK price list (with just a plain gold, fluted bezel) it was £20,800…and prices have generally risen about 5% since then!

  • 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.

  • Bicolour Rolex GMT-Master II model 16713 with black dial and bezel insert. Unusually, it is found on a 93153 Oyster Fliplock bracelet more commonly associated with the contemporary Submariner model, but the date code of this bracelet corresponds with the watch head and it is quite possible that it was upgraded at the original customer’s request. The watch is in very pleasing condition and shows few signs of age. It comes with Rolex boxes, GMT-Master booklet, numbered green swing-tag and Rolex papers from Amsterdam dated January 2000. The NEW equivalent is now £10,000! Available from Miltons of Chester, under the famous clock.

  • Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II model 16710 T with black dial and bezel insert on Oysterlock 78790A bracelet. This lovely 3185-calibre model has original Rolex 16710 boxes, GMT-Master booklet and UK papers from Goldsmiths in Leicester dated December 2004. The NEW equivalent is now £6,450 but these slightly slimmer, previous-generation models have in the last couple of years enjoyed an accelerating market that has been all their own. A quick search of UK dealers will illustrate that many are asking significantly more than this for 16710 GMT-Masters that are not in such nice condition and don’t have their original papers! Available from Miltons of Church Street, Liverpool city centre.

  • Gent’s stainless steel Cartier Roadster automatic bracelet watch, case reference 2510 with black / arabic numeral dial. Showing only superficial signs of wear, it comes with a Cartier box, instruction booklet, certificate booklet (the page with buyer’s details / watch numbers has been removed), our own warranty card and a certificate from the ALR Watch Register confirming that we checked it with them. Please note (1) this is NOT sold as a water-proof watch (2) such Cartiers are essentially very stylish DRESS watches; the automatic movements inside them are rarely perfect time-keepers and can seem noisy when the self-winding rotor turns (3) we would normally advise that anything between – 10 to + 15 seconds per day should be expected on these models, even after a service. Please ask our specialist watch team to discuss this watch with you and demonstrate how to wind it manually.

  • Bicolour Rolex GMT-Master II model 16713 with black dial and bezel insert on Oysterlock 78793A bracelet. This is one of the last “pierced lug” models which correctly bears the upgraded, solid end-link bracelet. It is in excellent condition, our only comment being that the bezel insert detail has mellowed to a pleasing, slightly paler gold colour than when new. Comes with Rolex 16713 boxes, GMT-Master booklet and USA papers dated April 2003. The NEW equivalent is now £10,000! Available from Miltons of Church Street, Liverpool city centre.

  • 36mm stainless steel and white metal Rolex Datejust TURN-O-GRAPH model 116264 on Oyster 72200 bracelet with grey-black / baton dial. Comes with Rolex boxes, Datejust booklet and what appear to be Japanese papers dated December 2005. A new equivalent was last listed in Rolex UK’s 2016 price list at £6,000 – but production has now stopped, arousing interest in the model. Red detail to the dial text, seconds hand and date display are distinctive on the modern Turn-o-Graph. The watch is in fine condition but (as is common on this model) there is some superficial wear to the bezel detail. Please note that while it features a time-lapse bezel, the Turn-o-Graph remains essentially a dress watch. For more robust purposes we would recommend one of the Rolex Professional range, perhaps a Submariner.

  • November 2018 watch, with its warranty card! One of the most desperately sought after models, available TODAY, UNWORN in some of its delivery stickers, with green swing-tag and NO silly nonsense about the warranty card being withheld*! Rolex “Pepsi” GMT-Master II model 126710 with black dial and that distinctive, two-tone bezel on Jubilee 69200 bracelet. We are aware that main agents have hundreds of outstanding requests for this model which at the current rate of supply will not be met for decades. Having paid well over RRP for it ourselves, we are in turn selling it at a significant premium to the list price. Ask for our Rolex-trained specialists Phil or Paul to discuss this watch with you. Comes with original boxes, GMT-Master II booklet, green swing-tag and international warranty card dated November 2018. The notional NEW RRP of this model is £7,150 but if you try to find one, prepare to be disappointed.

    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.

Please note that we no longer guarantee these older, plastic glass models to be water-resistant. A NEW Air-King now costs £4,750 but in truth a closer new equivalent may be the plain Oyster Perpetual 114200 at £3,850.

  • Bicolour Rolex Submariner Date model 16803 with black dial and bezel insert. Its original bracelet presumably having failed some time ago, it is offered now on a generic “NATO”-style black nylon webbing strap. The watch head is sound but the dial and bezel both show signs of age, as might be expected of a mid-1980s watch. We know there are many who will like the pleasantly-mellowed appearance of the matching tritium hands and indices. The 16803 model reference denotes the dependable 3035 calibre movement, whose date is adjusted by turning the winding crown backwards when in the mid-position. Comes with Rolex boxes, a slightly later Oyster booklet and our own warranty card. Would make for an effective and stylish “beater,” a pre-owned watch that one doesn't need to be too precious about wearing.

  • 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.

  • Of interest to collectors! Stainless steel Rolex Oysterquartz Datejust model 17000 from the late 1970s, which appears to have been fitted later with a blue / baton dial from a bicolour version of the model (note the yellow gold fittings and text). Contrary to the widely-held belief of a million wine-bar experts, for over twenty years Rolex DID make a quartz watch whose second hand TICKS rather than sweeps, as one might otherwise rightly expect of their mechanical watches. These Oysterquartz models are quite rare and their chunky looks are not to everyone's taste, but they have a following and this early example is in very nice condition. It comes with Rolex boxes, Oysterquartz booklet, Rolex UK service slip from July 2004 and our own warranty card. We like to warn prospective buyers just how LOUD the ticking sound always is on the Rolex 5035 quartz module. If you enjoy stalking lions, work for the Special Forces or are plagued by fears that a ticking bomb might be under your living room chair, this may not be the model for you. Offered with a one year warranty, since the Oysterquartz range is now discontinued.
