Tis the season to shop, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday and Green Tuesday and every other colorful day that falls between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the bottom line is this, it is time to start shopping for the holidays.
It doesn’t matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanza, if you are into gift giving, sometimes finding that perfect gift can be tough, and with economic times the way they are, it isn’t as easy to indulge in those luxury items anymore.
But have no fear, because Jonathan’s Diamond Buyer is here to save the day with the hottest holiday pre-owned watches for him (or her) in 2012. We are going to show you that you can not only afford luxury, but that you can save the planet at the same time by upcycling and knowing that one mans trash is another mans treasure.
Hottest Holiday Pre-Owned Watches for Him (or Her) in 2012
Rolex Cellini Cestello – The Rolex Cestello collection features 20 jewel manual-winding watches with a bold design. While the lines are clean and fluid, the style is definitely distinctive. The round dial and smooth bezel, but squared casing, provides an elegant, yet solid feel to this watch.
Rolex Datejust – The Rolex Datejust 36mm watch has a 3135 caliber 31 jewel COSC certified chronometer automatic (self-winding) movement that maintains accurate time within a tolerance of three seconds per day. It also has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and screw-down winding crown that is water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet).
Bell And Ross Aviation – Bell & Ross is a name synonymous with excellence and durability, which transcends time. These luxury timepieces are manufactured with precise GMT, Grande Date, automatic, and automatic chronograph movements, meticulously crafted to the utmost standards befitting of the name Bell and Ross.
Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante – The Panerai Luminor 1950 Chrono Rattrapante Watch has a 44mm stainless steel case, see-through sapphire crystal back, black dial, automatic Panerai OP XVIII calibre movement with split-seconds chronograph function and approximately 42 hours of power reserve with a carbon fiber patterned calf strap. This watch is water resistant up to 100 meters and all things fabulous.
1940S Rolex Rolesor Bubbleback – The Rolex Bubbleback’s unique name comes from its protruding case back, which bulges in order to accommodate the thick movement and rotor that turns on a pivot, powering the winding of the mainspring. The first Bubbleback made its appearance in 1933, and the watches were produced for only about twenty years. The Bubbleback helped establish Rolex as a brand known for its reliability, and these watches certainly are reliable—as evidenced by the relatively high number still functioning today.
IWC Aquatimer Galapagos Special Edition – The stainless steel case & bezel of this IWC are entirely clad in rubber. A complex vulcanization process that leaves the watch with a matt black rubber coating that gives the watch a unique feel & look accomplishes this. The rubber also provides an additional layer of protection against impacts. The case back is engraved with the well-known Galapagos Giant Tortoise.
And, of course, I wouldn’t leave you out in the cold, because we happen to have all of these watches available to you in our eBay store. In fact, we have several Datejusts in stock that would be great gifts and a few other goodies that you should definitely go and take a peak at!
