    Views on used Rolex

    A friend recently sold his Porsche 964, and has come cash he'd like to spend on an an older Rolex.

    He's found a couple of watches at a local Jeweller, on this page:

    https://www.instagram.com/jamesjewellery1/

    16803 @ £8995 about 2/3 down in the first colun
    16622 @ &8695 about 1/3 down, middle column.


    They aren't an investment, but he doesn't want to lose money.

    Both look ok to me, but I am no expert...

    Thoughts welcome...

    Couldn’t look for long enough before it asked me to sign up/in.

    Can you post screenshots?

    How do prices compare to WF, C24, eBay - or our friend Haywood??

    Not sure whether the serti (?) dial on the Sub increases or decreases the value compared to a usual dial version. Would have thought it's possibly less easy to move on in due course.

    The YM must be one of the least sought after professional models.

    Do they have B&P? Any service history? Warranty?

    I think you’d have a better chance of not losing money with this or similar:

    If resale was a big consideration for me I wouldn't buy either of those two models, I would only buy them if they were specifically what I was looking to add to my collection.

    ETA: I'd look out for a SS Sub or GMT to pop up at Miltonaires.

    Totally agree with above , the Two tone could be a bit loud and the YM is very much a plain Jane. In addition to Miltonaires he could also look at Blowers in Hull.

    £9K and they can't even get their punctuation or spelling correct.

    Lugs look a bit thin on the 16803 and a bit of a stretch calling it a limited edition, Rolex don't do LEs. As per others, better choices out there IMO.

    Thanks all.

    I will pass that on to him- chimes with my own views.

    For my own purposes when in this position, I bought a 16610 from Milton's!
