If you’re in the market for a Rolex, you may be trying to decide whether or not it makes sense to buy a dress watch or a watch more suited to everyday wear. There’s good news. Most Rolex watches are appropriate in different settings, whether formal or informal. However, the two models below are exceptional when it comes to wearing for work, play and formal occasions.
Rolex GMT-Master II
The GMT Master series is a very versatile series. The GMT Master II, and specifically the reference number 116710 BLNR is a great watch with flair and restraint blended together in a way few accessories could accomplish. With the blue and black forming a stand-out look that avoids ostentatiousness, this works at a meeting at the office but also for a trip to a burger joint. Got a very important fancy date? This is your watch. Of course, it’s also your watch for a picnic in the park. The GMT Master II is in very high demand but there’s no question it’s worth the waitlist wait. It might also make sense for you to bypass the wait and buy the watch on the secondary market.
As one of the most iconic watches, worn by James Bond in movies and a number of celebrities and business leaders, most people think of a Rolex and the watch they picture is this one. The watch is sporty enough you can wear it with jeans and a tee shirt at a backyard barbecue. Then, you can go to a formal cocktail party in a suit with this beauty on your wrist. The versatility of the Submariner is hard to overstate. The watch is extraordinarily popular right now, so you expect very long waitlists at authorized dealers and to pay a premium in the pre-owned market.
Now you have two great choices when you want a Rolex that can work from a casual setting to a formal setting. If you decide to buy one, you may find yourself searching on the secondary market, a necessity these days unless you’re willing to wait as long as three years for your watch. If you buy one that way, make sure you find a trustworthy and reputable pre-owned Rolex seller to help you get one of these beautiful timepieces on your wrist.
