We preach buying pre-owned watches quite often, actually. Much like with pre-owned cars, great deals can be found on premium timepieces when you open the scope of your search to include pre-owned watches. Though many customer fear that if they go the pre-owned route, they might not be getting certified, authentic watches, which is a frightening prospect when you’re spending big bucks on a premium piece. However, there are a few places where you can get pre-owned watches that are certified-authentic. Bob’s Watches is one of them but with a twist that makes them stand out and here’s why.
But before we get into the why, let’s talk about the who.
If you aren’t already aware, Bob’s sells high-quality, pre-owned and vintage Rolex timepieces. In fact, Bob’s is the first and only Rolex Exchange, where customers can buy and sell authentic pre-owned Rolexes.
Rolex is, of course, a great brand and one of the finest makers of watches on the planet. Much like BMW, Rolex makes impeccably built products with understated styling and timeless designs (well, sort of for BMW).
Of all Rolexes, we think the best pick for a BMW enthusiast is the Daytona. The Rolex Daytona is one of the most timeless and classic timepieces of all time, regardless of brand. Not only that but it’s been in the world of motorsport for decades, with such famous faces as Paul Newman wearing one. If we were to pick a watch from Bob’s portfolio, we’d choose the Daytona. More specifically, we’d choose the Rolex Daytona 116500 that’s currently for sale, or any variation of it.
The Daytona 116500 features a stainless steel bracelet, white face and black ceramic bezel. It’s the classic and stunning color combination that works with any situation, whether on the race track or at a black-tie event.
We reached out to the people at Bob’s Watches to choose a Rolex for BMW owners and the watch chosen was the Rolex Submariner. Now, the Submariner is a bit of an obvious choice, as it’s one of the very most popular premium watches on the market. In fact, it seems as if everyone with a bit of money buys a Submariner. For good reason, though, as it’s one of the most durable, long-lasting and impeccably built watches money can buy, all while looking equally as good with a tuxedo as it does with jeans and work boots.
The Rolex Submariner was also one of the many watches owned and worn by the famous Steve McQueen. He frequently wore his classic steel and black Submariner with various outfits. It’s a watch that will literally never go out of style, as it’s been in style, and one of the world’s most popular watches, for decades.
It also comes in a variety of different finishes and color combinations. Making the watch line itself very versatile and allowing customers to have different Submariners
The Submariner’s classic blend of diver watch-durability, rugged good looks and word-class build quality also make it the perfect watch to pair with a BMW and, because of its versatility, it can also pair with any BMW. Being that the Bavarians have a massive portfolio of vehicles, with everything from Soccer Mom crossovers to ultra-premium luxury cars to hardcore, track-oriented sports cars, having just one watch to pair with all of those cars can be difficult. Not for the Rolex Submariner, though, because it’s beautiful enough to work with a BMW M760i Excellence and utilitarian enough to be worn while driving a BMW M4 GTS.
Bob’s has an enormous selection of pre-owned and vintage Rolex timepieces from a variety of generations. But if you ask them, the watch for BMW enthusiasts is the Rolex Submariner.
