^ Looks a lot nicer then when I tried it on.
Reckon I need to leave it on a bit longer when I try it next.
For an '87 datejust, how much should I be paying if it were identical to Burnys one? Although I do quite like the jubilee bracelets.
I've seen them as cheap as £2000 and as much as £4000

You won't find one identical to Burny's as his is the current version (116200) and more substantial than previous ones (16200?). With a bit of homework you should be able to find an '87 with the same kind of look, i.e. silver dial, baton hour markers and either an oyster or jubilee bracelet.

Yep ^ although you can get a smooth bezel from around '88ish.
Search for 16000, price is around 3k I think.

Ok that's nice.
But you're into that Madonna crap?

What Dee just posted is pretty much spot on what I'm after. Is that still around the 3k mark? Ideally wanted to spend about 2.5k max.

That guys insta has some seriously nicely chosen rolex's. The blue face white gold daytona is something I didnt know existed. Looks great.

Cheers Deuce, will get looking.
Best places to get second hand ones from?

I'd really like a Sub on an Oysterflex, how would you get such a thing? I suspect Rolex don't sell the latter separately and if they did it'd cost an absolute fucking fortune. So, wait until they release it as an option? I think I just answered my own question.

Fuck me, the no date is £5450 now.

So I've found the one that Dee and Deuce posted, with box and papers, and just serviced by Rolex for 2k.
Worth pulling the trigger? And what shall I look out for? Will be buying privately from the blokes house, so will be going back if anything happens, but how do I distinguish the authenticity and that it's got the correct parts inside etc?

2k seems a bit low? Is it really worn or something? The service would have cost him £300 easily as well.
You cant know if it is fake, but if he can take the bracelet off the serial should match the paperwork (assuming that is legit, if a watch can be forged so can a bit of paper…) and it would be unlikely he would swap out a movement after the service.

£2k is low but not impossible from a private seller

Fudge, what's your whole collection like? Really like that batman and hulk. Wish I'd copped a sub or a sea dweller few years back instead of a bunch of tags.. Depreciated in value like crazy and don't really wear them anymore.
