What's a good, entry-level vintage sport Rolex suitable for a noob to test the water? My budget is $3-5k. Is this doable?

If collecting vintage Rolex is not for me, I can easily sell it at breakeven or better.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

they all are basically "sport" watches. I'd look for a 14k non-date OP with bombe lugs...or a clean 1601 DateJust with a black dial...or a Zephyr Date if you can find one. Just some different thoughts.
