Bob's Watches Q3 2013
Bob's Watches Q3 2013
What's Hot | What's Not

Bob's Quarterly Rolex Newsletter is back for the third quarter of 2013. With a whole year's worth of data, the information is sure to be accurate and compelling. The demand for pre-owned Rolex continues to increase as the economy slowly recovers.  Rolex introduced a slew of new watches at this year's Baselworld Watch Fair in Switzerland, all with sophisticated styling and technological innovation. Both national and international markets continue to grow, with significant Rolex sales increases for Asia and Europe. Vintage Rolex continues to gather the greatest attention, followed closely by Submariner, President, and Daytona models – Yachtmasters were slow toward the beginning of the year, but have been flying off the shelves in recent months.






Rolex - It's About Time

Yes, the time is here and Bob's Watches, your pre-owned Rolex Exchange has never looked better, with a complete design overhaul for the website and a new motto. The new site is now more user friendly and befitting of the world's premier Rolex Exchange. The new design exudes every element of sophistication and class that the Rolex brand demands and like, is designed with the high standards and unique taste of the Rolex enthusiast in mind.

With the increase of traffic and customers comes the increase in Rolex consumer trends and behavior.  The Rolex Milgauss watches, especially the white dial 116400 models, has been attracting a lot of buyers with its elegant design and continues to be difficult to keep in stock. GMTs are second on the "short supply" list with more buyers than sellers ever. However, contradictory to last year's trend, Rolex Submariners have been a bit softer this year, but not by much. Experts still predict that the most popular of the Rolex line will be one of the top sellers this coming holiday season. The new Chronograph Daytonas and Datejust models continue to hold steady in sales. 

The concept of a Rolex Exchange continues to be a controversial subject in the Rolex community, as both buy and sell prices are listed for every single watch on Some have mixed feelings about showing consumers the margins on every watch transaction while others applaud the moxie and courage of CEO and founder Paul Altieri for sticking with the original idea behind the business and continuing to show Rolex buyers and sellers fair, updated market prices for their Rolex watches.

Rolex continues to rise to the top of every luxury conversation, voted one of the top 3 coolest brands in the United Kingdom and cementing this century-old brand as the global symbol of success and luxury. Even at their significantly lower prices, not many could afford these elegant status symbols a few decades ago. However, the new generation brings with it a wave of fashion forward and ambitious young businessmen and women who have long embraced the goal of achieving success and social superiority for themselves. The trend was apparent this summer as more and more parents continue to visit and purchase Rolex watches from Bob's as graduation gifts for their son or daughter. 

Women Wearing Men's Watches and Why

2013 has been the year of the ladies when it comes to Rolex. Seeing women with an oversized 40mm men's Rolex watch around their wrist should not have been uncommon as successful and fashion forward females continue to break down gender boundaries. Not only are ladies Rolex watches flying off the shelves but more and more women are buying and donning men's watches as well. Carolin Issa, fashion director for Tank Magazine explains that for women, "wearing a man's watch is the accessory equivalent of wearing the pants in a relationship," establishing themselves as successful individuals deserving of the same praise as men.

New Rolex Models Released at Baselworld 2013!

If there was one word that could describe a common theme between the new watches that Rolex released at Baselworld this year, it would be "color". All 6 of the new watch models came with unique new color palettes along with their new innovative and sleek designs. The upgraded GMT-Matser II received a new black and blue ceramic bezel while the 50 year anniversary model of the Cosmograph Daytona impressed with a platinum case and band, ice blue dial, and chestnut brown bezel.

The theme of color continued into the new Rolex Day-Date models which came in cognac or green with yellow gold, cherry or blue with white gold, and rhodium or chocolate for Averroes models. Each watch came with their own leather strap with matching color, reflecting the popularity of sporting leather straps with Rolex watches in the previous year.
