I’ve been in the market for my first vintage day-date. Found some decent deals on Rolex forums, often without box and papers. This is my first vintage purchase so I just want to ensure I make the right choice.
I am looking at this exact ref and model from a verified seller on Rolex forums for $10k shipped with no box/papers. Is this a better deal?
I’m hesitant that there are no other images, and I have heard these jewelers sometimes only obtain the watch after a purchase order is submitted.
I found other deals on Rolex forums from very trusted sellers with great online refs. Am I better off paying $~10k or so from a verified seller on the forum, with no box/papers or service history? Just looking for some advice from some more experienced members of the community. Thank you.
