Lately, increased demand for watches from the 1960s through 1970s has put a strain on the vintage marketplace, creating a paucity of worthwhile examples for public consumption. However, throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Rolex, especially, produced watches that maintain the care and quality that we’ve come to associate with the Crown. Models such as the Submariner Reference 16800, Sea-Dweller Reference 16660, GMT Master 16750, and Explorer 16570 stand out as viable alternatives to the collector seeking to own a vintage Rolex.
True, the crystals may be sapphire, the dates may be quickset, and the dials may be glossy.
But the indices are applied, and coated in the same tritium that gives matte dial Rolex sports watches from the 1960s and 1970s (the “golden era” of vintage Rolex) that same creamy hue.
Most importantly, these watches are now twenty to thirty years old. This is the new era of vintage. When compared to their predecessors, they offer a value proposition that is hard to ignore.Take A Closer Look!
