Joe Escobar Diamonds has been a dealer of pre-owned Rolex watches for over 35 years, and I am very lucky that I get to buy and sell Rolex watches on a daily basis. I am going to periodically post my top five picks of our current pre-owned Rolex inventory and here they are!
Rolex Explorer II with a Polar white dial. The Explorer (1953) and Explorer II (1971) were developed specifically for explorers who would navigate rough terrain, such as the world famous Mount Everest expeditions. This iconic Rolex watch is 40mm in size and fits perfectly on the wrist, and is one of my favorite Rolex watches because it is one of the few Rolex watches in the professional series that is available with a white dial.
Rolex President Day-Date The Rolex President is one of the best known Rolex watches ever introduced. This watch has been worn by government leaders, and infuential businessmen the world over for over 50 years. A little known fact is that the watch itself is called the Day-Date, and it is actually the bracelet that is referred to as the President, although Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Ford, Reagan, Nixon and Roosevelt were proud wearers of the Day-Date.
Rolex Sea Dweller The Rolex Sea Dweller introduced in 1967 was purpose built for deep-sea diving. In collaboration with Comex SA industrial deep sea diving company, the Rolex Sea Dweller has set and still holds many diving depth records. The Rolex Sea Dweller is one of the most collectable Rolex watches and early examples have seen auction records well into the six figures.
Rolex Yachtmaster Rolex has been involved in yacht racing for decades and while it was not called the Yachtmaster back then, Sir Francis Chichester wore a Rolex during his historic round-the-world voyage in 1966-1967.
Rolex Daytona This Rolex Daytona in solid 18k white gold with a black mother-of-pearl Roman dial is phenomenal. This watch has the original box and papers and is fresh back from a Rolex factory service. Rolex orignially designed the Daytona Chronograph to keep track of lap times, and has a Tachymeter engraved bezel to accomodate this.
