Rolex Submariner "No Date" Review & A Curated Luxury Preowned Watch Guide For Watch Collectors

Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Luxury preowned watches hit the screen on Tim Mosso’s “Wake Up with Watches! Today’s show features the best watch models from Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Omega while showcasing top independent watch brands De Bethune and Greubel Forsey. From sports watches to dress watches, chronographs to GMTs, and tourbillons to perpetual calendars, there’s a WatchBox watch for ever watch collector here on YouTube’s only curated video gallery of luxury preowned watches. Rolex watches never fail to grab attention, but today’s show includes standouts even by the Geneva giant’s vaunted standards. The 2020 Rolex Submariner “No Date” sports a new 41mm stainless steel case, a new tapered lug profile, and a new caliber 3230 automatic movement with a 70-hour power reserve. Returning from the previous Submariner are the 300-meter water resistance, unidirectional dive bezel with Cerachrom ceramic insert, and Glidelock diving clasp with 20mm of incremental adjustment. The spectacular white gold Rolex GMT Master II 116759 dazzles with diamonds and black sapphires. This gem-paved Rolex specialty represents one of the last truly hand-made Rolex watch models, and its craft production method ensures rarity. Despite its diamond-paved lugs, crown guards, and GMT bezel, this Rolex GMT retains all of the underlying model’s core features including dual time zones, a COSC Swiss chronometer certification, and 100-meter water resistance. If you’re looking to buy Rolex models and variants nobody else has, this Rolex GMT 116759 should be at the top of your shopping list. Finally, the ultimate Rolex chronograph – the Rolex Daytona – makes an appearance. Admittedly, this watch has not been refinished. In the interest of offering as much factory metal as possible, WatchBox has opted not to polish this watch. The Rolex caliber 4130 chronograph movement features advanced refinements including a vertical clutch and a column wheel, a Breguet overcoil hairspring, a 72-hour power reserve, hacking seconds, and a free sprung balance with a full balance bridge. The “exotic” dial on this Rolex Cosmograph has been likened to a modern version of the famed “Paul Newman” Rolex Daytonas of the 1960s and 1970s. The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time is a star among haute horlogerie sports watches, but our Patek Aquanaut with Tiffany & Co. dial is a genuine investment grade watch. This example, which was retailed by Tiffany & Co. of New York City in 2014, is documented fully by its boxed set. Aside from the lore and allure of the famed “Tiffany dial,” this Aquanaut 5164A offers substantial water resistance – safe for swimming – and the practicality of a second time zone. A rugged rubber strap, stainless steel construction, and a fully lumed dial ensure unimpeachable sports watch credentials despite its blue blood pedigree. • 00:33 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore 44mm 26400IO.OO.A004CA.01 titanium $32,950 • 02:13 Bell & Ross BR03-92 Nightlum BR0392-BL3-CE/SCA black ceramic $2,950 • 32:50 De Bethune DB25 Starry Varius DB25VRS3 rose gold $59,950 • 29:27 De Bethune DB25 Perpetual Calendar DB25QPARS8R rose gold $69,950 • 36:12 Greubel Forsey Balancier S GF009X sports watch, titanium o Email tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing • 10:51 Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Small Seconds Q397846J Burgundy $12,950 • 19:50 Jaeger LeCoultre Master Grande Tradition Tourbillon Q1666470 GMT $54,950 • 13:13 Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Moonphase 3576.50.00 $7,450 • 16:09 Panerai Radiomir GMT 10 Days Oro Rosso PAM 497 $22,950 • 26:28 Patek Philippe Gondolo 5200G-001 Eight-Days Day Date $33,950 • 23:33 Patek Philippe 3970/002R Perpetual Calendar Chronograph $119,995 • 08:18 Patek Philippe Aquanaut Travel Time 5164A-001 Tiffany Dial $129,950 • 03:53 Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II 116759SANR $84,950 o white gold, diamonds, sapphires • 06:40 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner 124060 No Date Submariner $13,450 • 04:55 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona 116523 steel and gold $17,950 Please subscribe to our channel for the best luxury watch reviews on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/WatchBoxReviews/?sub_confirmation=1 Visit our website at www.thewatchbox.com for the latest pre-owned luxury watch arrivals and industry-leading value in previously loved luxury timepieces.
