Rolex Two Tone Watches – Are You Cheap for Going Two Tone?!


When it comes to luxury watches, are you a
fan of two-tone? Why? Are you cheap? There's a belief in the watch world that if
you can't afford all gold, you shouldn't go two-tone. Now, the reason why that exists is because,
you know, two-tone is kind of the halfway point. And in life, you don't really want to go halfway.

You kind of want to either go all the way
to the right or all the way to the left. So, some people would kind of suggest to maybe
just go stainless steel instead of the two-tone. Or if you can afford it, then you go all gold. But two-tone, a lot of people don't agree
that you should stop in that middle ground area. To the watch purists though, they believe
that two-tone is a nice middle ground and is not too flashy. When you have a two-tone piece it's not so
in your face, so two-tone appeals more to the watch enthusiast or connoisseur. Now that we have both sides of the spectrum
kind of laid out, we're going to go back to the argument at the end of the video.

Let's get into the video. In front of me in the box we have five distinct
Rolex two-tone models ranging from 9,000 to 30,000. So, one thing I kind of want to talk about
is Rolex's gold. Now Rolex mines their own gold in house. Other brands do do this but, some of the higher
end brands like AP, for example, their gold to me doesn't look as nice. Rolex's gold to me is some of the best in
the industry. So starting here from the right we have one
of my favorite Rolexes and it is the Wimbledon. That's the nickname for it. The reference is a 116333. These go for around $11,500.

Now this watch to me is one of the coolest
Rolexes you can buy right now. We talked about the stainless steel version
last week. This is the two-tone. It has that beautiful, kind of, green Roman
numeral dial. What can we say, guys? It's one of those Rolex that, it's very unique
looking but also classic at the same time. So, moving on to the next watch we have the
legendary Submariner, of course guys. This is the watch that everyone needs to have
in their collection.

This one, of course, is a two-toned. This particular reference is a 116613, ceramic
model. These trade for around $13,000. What more can we say guys? This is Submariner. I mean, it's an icon. It's a legendary watch and, I personally prefer
the blue version, but this black version is pretty cool. But if it was my money, I would go with the
royal blue. Moving on to the middle of the box, we have
this really cool vintage Rolex GMT in two-tone. Now this particular watch one is from 1991
and the reference is 16713. And they go for around $9,300. So, this is a vintage piece. It has the old school Rolex bracelet.

It doesn't have the modern ceramic features
or, you know, the new bracelets. So it kind of has like an old-school feeling
but, I mean, that's part of the charm, guys. I mean, this is a 1991 piece and if you have
a vintage Rolex, this is one I personally would add. Now, if we move onto the other side of the
box, we have the, kind of the more contemporary version of this piece, which is the everose
gold, or the chocolate, you know, whatever the nickname is, two-tone. The reference for this is a 126711. These go for around $18,500.

They're over retail right now. This is a beautiful, beautiful watch. This kind of color scheme goes perfectly with
the gold. And this is one of these pieces that, I personally
would also want to have in my collection. And, moving onto the last piece, we have this,
let's say, a funky Datejust. We can call it that. This is kind of a custom-made Datejust, modified
very heavily. The reference for this one is 126333. This is a Datejust 41 that's just been iced
out. I mean, these go for around $27,000, somewhere
around that price range.

And, I mean, not my taste definitely, but,
you know, you could probably find a buyer for this. But it's just not my style but it has Arabic
numerals, it's fully iced out. The bracelet is just filled with diamonds
and baguettes. So, it's a cool piece for some people, just
not personally my style. Back to the argument that we kind of introduced
at the beginning of the video. Are you cheap for not going all gold and sticking
to two-tone? So, I personally disagree with that kind of
mentality. I personally love two-toned. Now, I own a two-toned Sub blue dial with
diamonds and that's one of my favorite pieces. It's a vintage piece and from this box here,
I mean, hell I love pretty much almost all the watches here. I would've grabbed this Wimbledon, I would
grab, you know, the sub. Maybe in blue though. And even the GMT rose gold. So, I personally love two-tone. As an enthusiast or, kind of, a passionate
watch collector, I think there's a spot for both gold and two-toned. So, if I had, say, a budget of $100,000, if
I could afford the gold I would still probably buy a two-tone piece at some point in the

To me, it just makes sense. It's a natural progression of watch collecting. You want to, kind of, have a version of everything. A lot of people think that, oh no, if you
buy the two-tone you're kind of cheaping out. I don't really agree with that. I mean, the way I look at it is this way. If you are a person who has enough money to
own multiple cars, you buy your sports car for the weekend and you buy your daily drive. Maybe a Honda, and then on the weekend you
have your Porsche. That's the way I kind of see it for watches
in general. You have the stainless steel for your daily,
you have the two-tone maybe for you want to be a little flashy but not too flashy, then
on the weekend you want to bust out the all gold piece and kind of show off a little bit
you can do that.

So, to me, that's my perspective. It's not necessarily a, you know, cheaping
out kind of idea. Coming from a business background, when I
invest my money into something, I want to know that my money is there. So, with that in mind, let's talk about two-tone
and how they hold their value. So, on average, in the Rolex market stainless
steel tends to do the best. It tends to hold the best or even go up more
frequently in the market. Two-tone historically doesn't necessarily
go down but it doesn't really go up in a rapid pace. It kind of either stays the same for a long
time or maybe goes up slightly and then maybe dips back down. So that's something to consider. If you want a two-toned piece, you are getting
a more unique version of that legendary watch you want, like for example, this Datejust

You might see a bunch of stainless steels
where this is a little different. It's not like everyone else has the stainless…Not
everyone else has the two-tone. So, that's something to consider. But there's a con to that where, you know,
your value for the watch may not really go up in the future. But, if you're an enthusiast like me, you
probably don't care about that and you just care about the look and about the fact of
having a two-tone. So you probably won't really care that much,
but it is something to consider. Hey guys, we discussed two-toned . We talked about both sides of the argument. We have people that think if you don't go
all gold you're kind of cheaping out and then we have the enthusiast's side, which is, no,
you should probably own everything.

So, like I said in the video earlier, I personally
believe that you should own everything. I think a two-tone piece belongs in every
collection. Every watch collector's dream is to have,
you know, every kind of piece so I think it makes sense to me. But let me know what you guys think in the
