Hi from UK

Hi chaps

Looking forward to learning stuff on here about Rolex Subs.

My grandma has left me some cash in her will and I thought I would go and buy a black dial Submariner from my local jeweller in Liverpool. I'd always wanted one but never had that kind of cash for a watch Got to be easy surely! How wrong ha ha.

Anyway I am going to go second hand and want a ceramic bezel one but was going to read up about the advantage and disadvantage of box and papers and where you can buy these second hand watches from.

Thanks in advance guys

Simon

Hi from UK

Welcome to TRF. If buying second hand as your first Rolex it might be worth paying a little more and being 100% confident of the seller vs. someone unknown online etc.

A waitlist shouldn’t be so long at an AD though for a sub, so a bit of patience here may be the best route to go.
