1. Rolex GMT-Master 16753

One of the brand’s most iconic GMT-Master sports models, the Rolex GMT-Master has had a long and storied history that continues today. Originally a tool watch for pilots to keep track of time zones while they flew the skies, today, the GMT-Master has captured the attention of a much wider audience. This particular GMT-Master, the ref. 16753, is even more luxurious thanks to its two-tone steel and gold construction. Produced in the late 1980s, this vintage two tone Rolex GMT-Master ref. 16753 features a black dial, black dial, and dressier Jubilee bracelet with yellow gold center links. Plus, with a price tag that’s under $5,000, it’s an absolute steal.

The quintessential steel and gold luxury dress timepiece, few watches have gained the iconic status enjoyed by the Rolex Datejust. Since it pairs just as well with jeans as it does with a suit, there’s hardly ever a reason to take the Datejust off. This particular Rolex Datejust ref. 16013 from the mid-1980s sports the 36mm Oyster case along with the sportier Oyster bracelet. The predominately stainless steel construction is superbly accented with yellow gold center links on the bracelet, a yellow gold bezel, and yellow gold winding crown. Matching the yellow gold is the classic champagne dial with straightforward baton hour markers and the date window for which the collection is named after. Priced at less than $3,500, you’d be hard-pressed to find a comparable two tone Rolex timepiece with as much history and prestige that’s just as value-driven.

For a more understated, yet still luxurious, look, the two-tone white gold configuration is a great option. For instance, on this Rolex Air-King ref. 114234, the timepiece mostly uses stainless steel, except for the white gold fluted bezel, which adds a dressy touch. The Air-King is one of Rolex’s oldest collections having made its debut in 1945 as a tribute to British fighter pilots. This particular ref. 114234 houses a rich blue dial is marked with Roman numerals and doorstop-style indexes. Furthermore, the 34mm size of the Oyster case is well suited for both men and women. Striking a balance between a dress watch and a sports watch, this less-than-5k Air-King presents a solid value proposition. A perfect choice for those who seek for a two-tone gold Rolex with a history behind the watch.

4. Rolex Yacht-Master 69623

Infused with a nautical spirit, the two-tone Yacht-Master ref. 69623 is a chic sports watch for ladies. Featuring a 29mm Oyster case, steel and yellow gold Oyster bracelet, and yellow gold rotating bezel, the women’s version of the Yacht-Master is an elegant, yet robust choice. The sleek white dial contrasts with the Mercedes-style hands and black round hour-markers with yellow gold surrounds, while the red “Yacht-Master” label gives a pop of color. At less than $4,500, the ladies’ Yacht-Master is an accessible women’s luxury sports watch for her.
