Discontinued Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39MM Review & A Guide To Buying Luxury Preowned Watches

Contact for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! The 39mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual 114300 was discontinued in 2020, but Tim Mosso and WatchBox have a prime example ready and waiting for its next wrist. The 2021 Rolex watches have only just arrived, but interest in discontinued Rolex models is longstanding. In addition, today’s program spotlights classic Patek Philippe watches ranging from sports to dress styles This is YouTube’s only curated video gallery of luxury preowned watches! Any Rolex watch can lay claim to a glorious heritage, but the Rolex Oyster Perpetual deserves special regard in the esteem of watch collectors. Launched in 1933, the original Oyster Perpetual combined Rolex’s “Oyster” water resistant case with the “Perpetual” automatic winding system; it can be considered the first modern sports watch. Today’s show includes a model launched at Baselworld 2015, the Oyster Perpetual 39mm. This example is colorful, well preserved, and as versatile as any style ever launched by the giant of Geneva. For watch collectors who prefer a more aggressive sporting style, the latest Rolex Submariner is the solution. This 41mm dive watch is water resistant to 300 meters, equipped with the sliding Glidelock diving extension, and boasts a 70-hour power reserve thanks to a Rolex caliber 3235 automatic movement. Add a rotating dive bezel and style that transcends obsolescence, and you have the world’s most coveted diving watch. Patek Philippe is to high horology what Rolex is to mainstream luxury: the standard. Tim presents three models that encompass two of the most important watch classes offered by Stern family. A Patek Nautilus 5711 embodies the design ethic of Gerald Genta and the quality ethic of Patek. This example is an early one as indicated by a bracelet assembled with screws and a caliber 324 automatic movement with the long-discontinued Geneva hallmark (poincon de Geneve). But with a lumed dial, steel construction, automatic winding, and 120-meter water resistance, this Patek 5711 remains a formidable modern sports watch option. Perpetual calendar chronographs are a house specialty at Patek Philippe, and our vintage third series 3970G represents an outstanding example. At 36.2mm in white gold, this German language high complication is both a collectible vintage watch and a wearable daily driver. For those who prefer larger sizes or darker dials, Tim also presents the Patek Philippe 5170G-010, a Baselworld 2015 launch with a black dial, white gold Breguet Arabic numerals, and a white gold case. • 24:43 Blancpain Fifty Fathoms MIL-SPEC Hodinkee 5008-11B30-NABA $21,950 o Stainless steel, 40.3mm, 250 piece limited edition • 31:27 De Bethune DB25 Power Reserve DB25SV white gold, silver dial, 40mm case $29,950 • 34:14 De Bethune DB28 Digitale, guilloche dial, jump hour, moonphase DB28DN o Email for pricing • 14:41 F.P.
