Rolex Watches for New Collectors

As one of the most recognisable and respected watchmakers in the world, the Swiss brand has a wide range of timepieces that have proven to offer relatively accessible prices for aspiring Rolex owners. In this blog post, we will showcase a further two Rolex watches suitable for new luxury watch collectors.

Rolex Datejust 41

The Rolex Datejust 41 is renowned in the luxury watch industry for its unheralded versatility, and it is equally suited to being worn with a casual pair of jeans as it is providing the finishing touches to a sharp suit. 

The Datejust 41 is by no means a jack of all trades, however, as the timeless and classic Rolex design ensures that the 41mm timepiece commands a strong presence on the wearer’s wrist. 

Among all of our selections for entry level Rolex watches, the Datejust 41 is the only watch to offer one of the brand’s most recognisable technical advancements: the Cyclops lens that enhances the viewing of the date window, which magnifies the instantaneously changing date display by 2.5 times. 

Powering the Datejust 41 is the impressive self-winding Caliber 3235 movement, which has been officially certified as a “Chronometer” by COSC, ensuring that the timepiece’s timekeeping prowess is second-to-none. 

The Rolex Datejust 41 retails for around £10,550 in the United Kingdom.


Rolex Submariner 41


First released in 1953, the Rolex Submariner is one of the most distinguishable watches to ever be manufactured.

When it was introduced, the now iconic collection was the first to be waterproof to a depth of 100m, and the reference 124060 that we have included in this list now boasts treble that.

This reference does not feature a date window, ensuring that this Submariner displays an uninterrupted time display as the original Submariners did, representing an excellent point of entry into the world of Submariner ownership.

Despite being considered to be an entry-level Submariner, this reference still features a rotatable 60-minute bezel in scratch-proof Cerachrom ceramic, which along with the blue Chromalight display, guarantees that the watch will be an excellent partner on any journey.

Much like the movement in the Datejust 41, the self-winding Caliber 3230 has been certified as a “Chronometer” by COSC, ensuring that professionals using this instrument can time their dives with pinpoint\ precision.

The Rolex Submariner reference 124060 is priced at around £12,000 in the United Kingdom
