    no kidding.

    Seamasters can be had for fantastic deals. For vintage rolexes, you can get in above your head pretty quick depending on the watch. Id recommend an old datejust, or precision dial. Avoid the old subs or SDs unless you have a disposable income. Those are gorgeous, and some can get over 50K. (google mil sub)


    great site tits!

    They are located here in Dallas, and I believe they have a showroom. It is my hope to get in there sometime soon to get eyes on the pieces directly so that I can say something more about how their pieces look.

    I love the Nautilus. Definitely one of the nicest luxury sport watches of all time. The Aquanaut, is one model I've never quite warmed up to.

    I think you have to be clear on whether you are seeking vintage or simply pre-owned. You can get pre-owned Datejusts, Subs, GMTs, etc for a lot less than the current MSRP. When I say pre-owned I mean watches of roughly the last 20 years or newer. If you are talking about vintage watches say stuff thats roughly 25+ years, really the only bargain priced watches will be some Datejusts, Oyster Dates, etc. Vintage Submariners, Sea-Dwellers, Explorers, GMTS and of course Daytonas are frequently far more costly than the modern ones depending of course on the model and its condition. Vintage can provide you with a really interesting Rolex, but you have many more options on vintage Rolex watches if you have a sizeable sum to spend on a vintage Rolex.

    Nice choice. The Daytona has always been one of my favorite Rolex watches. I have it with the inhouse cal 4130 movement and with the Zenith based cal 4030. Here is a photo of one of mine. I'd love to get a vintage one with the manual wind movement....maybe some day, if I hit the lottery

    I'm a new member on a slow sartorial learning curve, mostly reading threads and not posting at all. However, having developed a taste for and worked up a small collection of vintage watches I thought I might share pics of some of my watches.

    Some people can spend ages selecting the tie for the day - I need a couple of mintues each morning choosing a timepiece for meeting the challenges and adventures of the day. [​IMG]

    As you may notice, my preferences lean heavily towards the 50's and 60's, which IMO offers some of the best value and style for both casual and formal wristwear.

    The 18Kt WG also has a different bezel than the SS.
