I bought this model used and have never regretted my decision! I researched new and used Datejust watch prices for months. I decided to go pre-owned because a used model was about $2,500 less than new models! My "used" watch arrived WITHOUT a scratch, nick or problem. It was in PERFECT condition and came with a one-year warranty from the seller, Gold-N-Time also! My advise: When going Rolex, go pre-owned!
