Vintage Rolex watches exist in bounty, but can be marked by extremely high prices given their rarity. Also note that compared to today's average men's wrist watch size, vintage Rolex models tends to be quite small. In fact, today's average replica rolex daytona is of "moderate" size compared to other watches (though that fact is changing as Rolex steadily releases larger watches). Having said that, owning a good quality vintage sport or dress Rolex model can be very rewarding in both style and "cool" factor. Having a vintage Rolex Submariner for example is not only often less expensive than a brand new model, but is certainly more hip. They also aren't so small as to appear like ladies watches much of the time.
Close to the style of the Submariner are related models such as the GMT-Master II (similar in appearance but with a second time zone hand), the Sea-Dweller Deepsea (a larger, more professional use dive watch), and the Yachtmaster (dressier version with a style between a dive watch and a dress watch). Think of these as offshoot models which vary the core theme but are all related by the same replica breitling navitimer. These are all good options as well and will have prices within a few thousand of your basic Submariner. In a nutshell, the Submariner is the most popular, and the others offer interesting, yet sometimes minor, variations that might suite your style and lifestyle better. None are inherently "better or worse" watches, and are worth a look to find the right size, material, and color for you.
Not offered in steel and priced higher are the Rolex Day-Date II watches. These feature a day of the week complication and are otherwise similar to the Datejust models in size and style. The Day-Date II watch is also known as the replica rolex Milgaus much of the time. These watches are certainly more showy and expensive given a lack of steel versions. It is a good watch for a middle-aged man who feels he can afford it without struggling with an average low price.
People who want a Rolex watch for mostly special occasions should seek out their dressier or showier models in precious metals and perhaps with diamonds. These watches will be used as wealth and status symbols and thus don't need to go along with all types of outfits or occasions. Otherwise, you'll look like a South American drug lord wearing a diamond-encrusted gold Rolex in your workout clothes. On the flip side, a mere Rolex Submariner isn't likely to deliver the right message if you are trying to impress people at a high-society event or executive luncheon.
In 1983, when i was 16 I bought my first Rolex Submariner, A year later when i was 17, I bought my first Apple Mac. I actually pre-paid for my first Mac and picked it up the first day it was available to the public. I paid low price tax for the Mac, and also bought the Apple dot-matrix printer for low price. So basically, in 1984, a state-of-the-art Mac was three times as expensive as a stainless steel Rolex Submariner, which was low price. Fast forward to 2012, and the same Mac retails for between low price depending on how you get it equipped. A stainless Rolex Submariner is low price today, which makes it seem like it has increased in real dollar price over the years by 2-3 times. But, that original Mac computer I purchased 30 years ago is useless and worth almost nothing, and the Rolex Submariner I purchased has significantly increased in value and is now worth low price. It has pretty much remained a rule, that with every Rolex I have owned over the last 30 years, and I have owned many, that i am always able to purchase them, and when it comes time to sell them, I have never lost a penny, so i basically got to wear the Rolex watches for free, and that speaks volumes.
