Item no.: WSN 1456
Certainly most Rolex DATEJUST IIs that I've photographed over the years have had dials with a 'neutral' colour, i.e., white, grey, silver or black. So it's really refreshing to photograph this particular example with its 'more interesting' dark-blue dial. A bit of colour adds some richness to what is otherwise (quite intentionally) quite an austere and understated yet imposing watch design.
So the particulars: this is a steel-on-steel, 41mm Rolex DATEJUST II with model reference number 116300. It was new in 2016, comes with box and papers, and is in very good condition indeed. It has been given a tickling with the polishing mops, so it looks almost like new too!
And as a 'green seal' watch (as you can see in the photos), it remains under Rolex's 5-year guarantee of its "proper functioning" — specifically until 2nd March 2021) — which is reassuring.
Inside the hermetically sealed, tank-like 'Oyster' case of this impression-making watch is, of course, an automatic mechanical movement in the Rolex tradition, and the case is mounted to Rolex's timeless 'Oyster' type bracelet, which has been given a very smart combination of brushed and polished finishes.
However, note that your cash outlay could be significantly less than our asking price, because we may also consider your old Swiss watch (or watches) in part exchange if you have one. If there is any possibility you might like to do a part-exchange deal when you visit us, please bring your watch(es) in with boxes and papers if you still have them, together with some photoID such as a driving licence or passport.
Note that we can also offer 12 months of interest-free credit on upto 90% of the amount payable (subject to acceptance): this would be arranged on our premises.

The accompanying photos are of the actual item that we have for sale. Despite that, we would of course always suggest you call into our shop if you can: we think it'd even be worth a special trip into Manchester!
After all, there really is no better way to check out a watch that you might be interested in owning than to come and take a closer look at it. Inspect it, handle it, try it on for size and ask us about it! Of course, while you're here, you can browse our large collection of other superlative-condition famous Swiss brand watches. In any case, not only would you be very welcome, but you'll also be in the heart of Manchester's shopping district (we're located just off St Ann's Square) and there are plenty of places nearby to enjoy a coffee too, so why not plan a visit soon?
Here, you're typically able to browse around one hundred and fifty (and growing) pre-owned Swiss watches that we have out on display, each of which has been carefully selected, based on its condition, from among the many more watches that we see and handle every day. (To a large extent, that's in effect what we do: we 'filter' pre-owned watches. Only the very best of what we buy in or receive in part exchange deals make it onto our display shelves and onto this website, and this particular gents' Rolex watch is perhaps the ultimate example of those efforts. The rest are sold on: for example, to smaller dealers in the trade.)
The result is that, in terms of condition, we probably have **THE BEST** collection of pre-owned Swiss watches in the UK's North West! Why not take advantage of that fact to make it easier to find your next (or perhaps your first) Swiss watch that's in the sort of condition that you'd prefer. A watch that delights you: you know, one of those purchases that leaves you feeling totally happy that you've chosen right, and that continues to give you pleasure for months and years ahead!
