Preowned luxury watches from $2,950 to $200,000 ensure that all watch buyers, watch collectors, and watch enthusiasts are guaranteed to find the right match for their tastes, wrists, and budgets. This is YouTube’s only curated luxury watch safari! Today’s show features one Rolex watch, the Rolex Day Date 40. This 40mm white gold calendar complication, also known as the Rolex “President” or “Presidential,” is ready for its next administration on your wrist! With a 70-hour power reserve, double quickset day-date calendar, and a 100-meter water resistance, this is a Rolex with broad appeal. The bracelet, which is properly named the “Rolex President,” includes ceramic-coated pins designed to end Rolex bracelet stretch for all time. This reference 228239 includes a white dial with white gold applied roman numeral hours and the celebrated Rolex crown logo. Grand Seiko watches arrive in two varieties on today’s program. The first is a 44.2mm Grand Seiko dive watch, the SBGA031. This is a titanium spring drive diver with 200-meter water resistance, an adjustable diving clasp, and a unidirectional rotating dive bezel. Its Seiko Spring Drive automatic movement includes a power reserve indicator, a 72-hour power reserve, and outstanding quartz-watch accuracy of +/- 15 seconds per month. Fans of a more compact Grand Seiko shape will enjoy the 2020 Grand Seiko “Soko” collection SBGA429. Inspired by the season of autumn and early snowfalls, this poetic edition includes a dark “shadow” grey brushed dial and green accents inspired by the forests of northern Japan in late fall. A Spring Drive automatic caliber 9R65 provides outstanding precision, the Zaratsu-polished steel case reflects meticulous hand-finishing, and the color-matched alligator leather strap pairs perfectly with the dial. Fans of German watches will appreciate two standouts from Glashutte. First is the white gold A. Lange & Sohne Datograph Perpetual with a flyback chronograph, perpetual calendar, and a dark rhodium dial crafted from sterling silver. Second in order but not distinction is the Zeitwerk Striking Time, a jumping time digital display watch that strikes notes at the turn of the hour and the quarters. • 32:05 A.
