    Would you make this trade? Rolex DJ 41 + Cash for VC FiftySix

    Hi all:

    Long story short, I'm graduating from law school and am looking for a watch to mark the occasion. I made a similar-ish thread in F2 a few weeks ago, but wanted to get this community's advice. My budget is around $4k for a new (to me) piece, and I've been seriously considering holding out until I can find a JLC Master Control Sector Dial in my price range, but then this beauty came across my radar when I visited an AD last week.

    My current rotation is my DJ41 domed bezel, oyster bracelet, blue dial, which I purchased in August 2018 from an AD (at a significant discount), and an Explorer 214270 Mk1.

    Assuming I could get the FiftySix for my DJ plus around $3,500-$4,000, would that be a worthwhile move, or would you hold onto both Rolexes and go with a JLC?

    Thanks in advance!

    from a financial perspective the VC will quickly drop down to the price of the DJ you are trading in. However if you are looking to buy and keep a different style of watch I like the VC very much even though it is not the flavour of the month amongst the collectiung community. That model also now comes in a blue.

    I would do it. I think the uniqueness of the fifty six if its your style sticks out. The DJ41 probably wont appreciate much more than it currently has, and will always be available at the same price and availability (DJs are the one true model not to feel the steel rolex pinch).

    Have you had a watch with leather strap be the primary watch in your rotation before? Personally I like the look of the VC over the JLC sector dial (haven’t had a chance to try it on yet though so don’t know how comfortable it is), and I’m generally a fan of consolidating so I’d go for the VC if you’re confident you can have a leather strap watch be your daily wearer

    I do like the applied indices on the VC more than the JLC one.

    For sure i would do the trade in a heart beat. it sounds like you are someone who does their research and now the true cost of things.
    the Vacheron Constantin is a high horology piece (and part of the wholly trinity). the finishing on the VCs is perfect and there watches have a very cozy feeling.
    by doing the trade, you will have a high horology dress watch in your VC and a sporty Rolex for really hot summer days

    I would also do the trade. It looks fantastic from all the photos I have seen, and I prefer it to the JLC. The day date with PR version was recently discussed on this forum. I prefer your choice with the cleaner dial and date only. A timeless classic look that will
    go well with the Explorer 1.
