Hi Guys!

I'm new here and looking to buy my very first Rolex. I'm looking for a Datejust II 116334. Would it be better for me to buy it new or used? Looking to save money of course but want it to be Legit. The thing is I Live in Vancouver Canada and shipping and Tax may be an issue, have any ideas?

Thank you,

Welcome to TRF!

For me, a Pre-loved Rolex is fine to get the $$$ savings.
Look at the trusted sellers here from Canada to avoid the customs/duty situation.

Welcome! I always buy used. I can't justify the often HUGE price jump for a new one.
