Best used Rolex dealers?

I just registered here because I finally decided to buy one of my grails, an Air King. I'm going to buy used, though.

Where are the best places to buy a used Rolex? I'm referring to outfits that fully inspect/service by a trusted watchmaker on staff?

Or can someone point me to the email addresses of private sellers who are trusted?

Forgive me if this has been discussed to death already, but a search didn't pull up anything definitive and an internet search provides WAY too many dealers (none of whom I'm familiar with).

Check out the Buyers/Sellers "Who's Who" section on this forum. This area will list feedback from forum members who've bought from/sold to other forum members; many are regular sellers on the sales corner here. Will also list some grey market dealers selling second hand.

Go take a look in the buyers/sellers & who's who and it become pretty obvious who the honest sellers are.

+1 for Howard Frum Jewelers in Chicago, fun place to watch the action. Could be right out of Seinfeld.

500 used Rolex in stock.

Do you mean a physical brick and mortar store close to you? If not then the aforementioned members on TRF seem to be great, I will be contacting them soon myself.
