We have new additions to our exclusive luxury watch collection at Diamonds By Raymond Lee in Boca Raton. Like all of our high-end Swiss watches, these “new” timepieces are pre-owned. Nevertheless, they are all in like-new condition. While some of the watches we are about to present to you are highly sought after and thus command a higher price than MSRP, many of the watches below are an absolute steal because they are used. Not to mention, we are giving very competitive prices right now due to the current climate of the market.
In any case, these are all exquisite timepieces that will make autumn of 2020 a special one.
Without delay, here are 10 used watches new to Diamonds By Raymond Lee in Boca Raton…
10 LUXURY SWISS WATCHES NEW TO DIAMONDS BY RAYMOND LEE IN FALL 2020
While the following watches make for the perfect fall 2020 timepiece, they all will undoubtedly be treasured forever. After all, we only source the most iconic, classic, perennially popular fine luxury watches at Diamonds By Raymond Lee.
1. Patek Nautilus 5711/1A
The blue dial Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 is the most coveted watch in the entire Patek Philippe catalog. In fact, it is one of the most sought after watches in the world. This is why it is virtually impossible to get one brand new from a Patek dealer. You’d either need a miracle or to know someone very well, and even with that, you’d be waiting quite some time for one to become available. This is why collectors always turn to the secondary market for the Nautilus 5711/1A.
It’s obviously nice to not have to wait years and years for the chance to get one, but you need to pay a premium because of this. Is it worth it? The answer is, absolutely! This watch has continually increased in value year after year. It literally gets more popular by the minute, and with such a small production for the Nautilus and Patek watches in general, it is not likely anyone in your circle has one. The blue dial Patek Nautilus is more than a watch, it is a status symbol among true watch connoisseurs.
To have this watch is to have the watch game and haute horology in your clutches. With the rounded octantal shape, the intelligent porthole construction of the steel case, and the iconic horizontally embossed blue dial, obtaining the Gerald Genta design that is the Nautilus 5711 is without a doubt the apex of watch collecting.
Want this watch? We have it for sale at Diamonds By Raymond Lee, but it is not listed on our site. This is a special watch reserved for our closest clients first. However, feel free to reach out to us now and you may be able to acquire it.
2. Rolex 116689 Yachtmaster II 18k White Gold Watch
The Rolex Yachtmaster II reference 116689 is a very beautiful and distinct watch that you will rarely see on someone’s wrist. Most Yachtmaster watches that you see around town are the blue bezel steel or two tone versions. The white gold all-white Yachtmaster II is something out of the ordinary.
The watch sits on the wrist with immense presence. With its 44mm case, white gold luster, silvery-white bezel, and white dial with blue and red accents, this watch commands attention…and in our opinion, it deserves every second of it.
Make note, because of its large composition, you will need a sizable wrist for a proportional fit. Of course, if you have small wrists and you like big watches, you can still go for it. However, we recommend this for someone with a 7.25 inch wrist.
On another note, we want to quickly mention why it is ideal to buy gold luxury watches used:
Honestly, it doesn’t make sense to purchase a white gold Rolex watch new if you can get a used one in great condition. Why? Because you will be saving a significant amount of money and you won’t be losing any value when purchasing it like you would if you bought it new. It’s mostly the most popular watches in steel that sell for more used than they do new, with some special exceptions.
3. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 18k White Gold with Factory Diamonds Watch
When first looking at this watch, you might think it is a bustdown AP with all of those diamonds, but you’d be wrong. Those are all factory set diamonds. This is an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronograph reference 26068BC.
The watch has an 18 karat white gold case and dial with a black strap. As for the gems, there are 449 round brilliant cut diamonds totaling to 4.04 carats and the dial has sapphire applied hour markers. To make matters even more special, the subdials are mother of pearl.
If you want a watch that can’t be missed this fall, the AP Royal Oak Chonrograph 26068BC is the one. The light performance this watch produces is simply marvelous. And one of the best parts about this watch is…it is priced significantly lower than what it was at MSRP because it is pre-owned.
4. Piaget Dancer 18k White Gold with Onyx Dial and Diamond Bezel Ladies Watch
Piaget is a world renowned Swiss watchmaker known for crafting exquisite, ultra-thin timepieces with a high jewelry feel. This 18k white gold Piaget Dancer ladies watch is the perfect example of that.
The watch is 23mm in size. It has a factory onyx dial (super special touch), factory diamonds on the bezel and dial, and the bracelet has a special vignette that gives it the impression of cut gems. All in all, it is an extremely feminine watch, perfect for formal occasions.
5. Rolex 228239 Day Date 18k White Gold 40mm Black Stick Dial Watch
The Rolex 228239 black dial Day-Date is the perfect dress watch for those who want a simple and elegant yet strong and stunning look. The black dial contrasts powerfully with the white gold case, bezel and bracelet. Moreover, the watch is extremely legible in any lighting thanks to the minimal, clean and spacious dial and abundance of lume.
It’s everything you could ask for in a dress watch. It has the Rolex name, it is a Day-Date, arguably the most iconic and classic name in dress watches, and it has a fluted bezel and president bracelet. This is a Rolex President that flies under the radar. Modern men appreciate this kind of aesthetic.
And while this is a great watch for fall and winter of 2020, it is a timeless timepiece that will be rockable for many years, and decades, to come.
6. 18k Rose Gold Bell & Ross BR01 Aviation Tourbillon Watch
Bell & Ross is definitely not as big a name as the other watch brands on this list, but to true watch aficionados, Bell & Ross is among the best and most desirable. Bell & Ross commands a price that reflects that. Their watches have jaw-dropping price tags. However, if you can afford one, it is definitely worth it, especially their BR01 aviation watch collection. They are arguably the coolest square watches in the game.
This Bell & Ross BR01 is one of the elite versions. It is has an exposed tourbillon, which guarantees perfect accuracy of the watch as it compensates for the force of gravity in a vertical position. A very functional feature for real pilots. Plus, it looks high tech and badass.
What’s more, the case is made from 18k rose gold, the dial is carbon fiber, the strap is made from alligator leather, and the movement provides 5 days of power reserve. This is avant-garde at its finest.
All in all, if you want a unique, ahead-of-the-time, futuristic looking watch, this Bell & Ross 18k rose gold BR01 aviation tourbillon watch is an excellent choice.
If you pay attention to our blog, you’ve probably seen this Bell & Ross BR01 watch, as we’ve recently reviewed it – see our hands-on, in-depth review of the Bell & Ross tourbillon.
7. Patek Philippe 5108G Calatrava 18k White Gold 37mm Watch
Many people consider the Patek Philippe Calatrava to be one of the best dress watches of all time. We’d have to agree. It’s a watch for a classy man that knows the true definition of a fine wristwatch.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava 5108G is crafted from white gold and it features a diamond bezel and a dial with diamond hour markers (both round brilliants and baguettes). The strap is an OEM Patek black leather strap – gorgeous and long lasting.
Overall, the watch has unparalleled sophisticated with its pure lines, 37mm round-shape case, and clean, spacious dial. It’s a watch to be proud of for the rest of your life, and then passed down to future generations so they can appreciate it as well.
8. Rolex 116613 Submariner Two Tone Black Dial Wrist Watch
The Submariner is probably the most iconic sports watch there is, alongside the Rolex Daytona. It’s a toss up between the two, but the Submariner has more history, having been around for almost three decades longer.
We were really happy when we added this new style Rolex Submariner 116613LN to our collection, as we already had the older generation.
This Subby is two tone steel and yellow gold with a black dial and bezel. The color combination is very eye-catching. With the yellow gold numerals and graduations on the bezel and the yellow gold appliqués and hands, the color scheme is polarizing. Everything pops magnificently. That said, it’s not in your face like a Rolex Smurf or a Hulk. Yellow gold and black is a bit more versatile. You could take this watch from the sea to an after hours party without missing a beat.
9. Rolex 116523 Daytona Two Tone with Mother of Pearl Dial Watch
The Rolex Daytona with a mother of pearl dial…if that’s not sexy, then we don’t know what is. This Daytona doubles as the perfect racing sports watch and the coolest dress watch for a modern gentlemen (sorry ladies, this is definitely a watch a woman can appreciate too!)
The Rolex Daytona you see here is a reference 116523, which has been discontinued. The watch is two tone yellow gold and steel and besides the factory mother-of-pearl dial, it has all of the classic Daytona characteristics.
If you want an iconic watch that is instantly recognizable all over the planet, the Daytona is the epitome of that, and this Rolex Daytona 116523 is surely one of the more unique variations.
10. Rolex 69158 Datejust 18k Yellow Gold 26mm Diamond Ladies Watch
While all of the new watch additions at Diamonds By Raymond Lee can be worn by women without a second thought, this one is specifically for the ladies. It is a gorgeous yellow gold Lady Datejust, reference 69158. The diamonds, which line the bezel and lugs, and make up the hour markers on the dial, are all factory set.
While the President bracelet is usually saved for Day-Date watches, some Datejust use it too. This is one of those Datejusts.
The watch has an astonishing luster to it thanks to Rolex’s in-house yellow gold and their masterful finishing technique. On the wrist, this watch is absolutely stunning.
If any of you ladies want to try it on, or if you are thinking about your loved one wearing this yellow gold diamond Lady Datejust, you can come to our showroom to check it out in person.
