No affiliation but Bob's has used watches and very reputable.

There are others as well. But be careful as lots of fakes out there.

I bought mine used from an AD with warranty shortly after they came out and was happy to pay a premium over others as I knew it could be trusted. So, maybe check with them as well.

If you must get new, you can shop out of state to avoid taxes. But currently, many ADs are out of SS models.

Hope this helps.

I saw a Rolex 116000 OP blue dial that I really like. It's 36mm which for me is ideal size for dress/casual watch. I'm not a fan of watches bigger than 40mm. Does anyone have any experience with this model/blue dial Rolex. Thanks.

Rolex 40mm is not big. Its the perfect size. My wrist size is 6.75" and all 40mm fits perfect. Go with your wrist size.

In regards to 116000, its a good watch. All Rolex watches are excellent. Plus they do have 39mm for this series.

Just make sure you check out the physical shop first or read through many reviews for an online dealer. Lots of shady stuff happens when you go to a non AD.

If you are on the watch forums, there's some good deals to be had buying from reputable members.

I had a good deal on my ceramic Submariner. I wasn't planning to buy it but I couldn't resist when I saw the price - I could have easily sold it for profit even if I didn't want it. I got it at a dealer in Japan when the exchange rate was over 120 yen/dollar. I was not a fan of the Sub but it grew on me. Now it's one of my favorite go to watches.

Rolex has been pumping up the price of the Sub... the price now is pretty ridiculous! It's not a rare watch but because the price of a new one keeps going up, it artificially inflates the price of pre owned ones. That is part of the reason why a lot of watch enthusiasts hate Rolex.

Start with Rolex AD first.
Online buying is hit and miss. I do not prefer buying online.

Might add the 116000 blue dial to my collection. My white dial Datejust, and Submariner need company. I can’t figure out why watches become a addiction. Lol...
