About Bob's

Bob's Watches is the World's First and only Pre-Owned Rolex Exchange where consumers can buy, sell, and trade vintage and used Rolex watches at true fair market value.  We openly publish the current buy and sell values for each Rolex model allowing us to serve as an online marketplace for buyers and sellers looking, quite simply, to get the best deal.  We are devoted exclusively to only used Rolex watches, including vintage and antique timepieces, and pride ourselves in obtaining the very best results possible for our customers.  Our business philosophy is built on trust and integrity and in a very short time we have become the leading online destination for used Rolex watches and vintage Rolex expertise. And unlike other online watch companies, Bob’s carries an actual inventory of watches.  Every watch on our site is in stock ready for sale. For more information about Bob's Watches, see our Wikipedia page.

And while our business has grown rapidly over the past years, we hold strong to our commitment of offering the highest quality customer service.  Bob’s Watches is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.

Since we post our buy and sell prices openly on the site, sellers can be assured they are getting full market value. Payment is wired the same day. 
  • Buyers:  All buyers are looking to purchase a genuine Rolex from a trusted reseller at the best price. To that end, we encourage our buyers to shop us on Google shopping to discover how good our pricing really is.
