Looking to Dive In

I am looking to get into the vintage rolex market. More specifically, looking for a piece from 1982(my birth year). I like a bigger watch so I am thinking a Daytona or Sub. Any suggestions on where to start my search?

this forum :)... A lot of work to do but rewarding in the end if you know what you're buying. Here are some useful links too:

Good luck

It sounds like you’ll need to put something on your wrist before taking that dive, especially if you like large watches by modern standards. You’ll be surprised by how small an older Daytona actually is.

Bigger and vintage Rolex is sort of an oxymoron

Agreed, me going from a 16600 to a 116660.

Love my choice though, no regrets.
