Should buy a, rolex Submariner? (srs) - m, forums (srs) - Page Sep 01, 2018 they are actually great watches (everyone keeps calling them status watches). You could have bought a submariner in the 50s and it still is not out of style. The values actually do increase as well. Bought my green sub for 7500 (6k if you factor in the 1500 I made on the Rolex I traded in and I could sell it for 11k easily right now. Basel 2018 - Page Rolex, forums, rolex, watch Forum Sep 03, 2018 I have a couple of Rolex's (GMT Master II bought new, Airline from the 60's) and others (Omega, Longines). I really like the Rolex GMT II, it wears like Iron and was my daily when I worked in Saudi, and it cleans up well but was around 3K new when I bought. I'm not sure if I would spend 7K to 10K on a new watch these days. Jan 16, 2018 I think it is a necessity the new 3235 movement that according.
