You can also survey market trends, find out new collecting trends and network with business associates all while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Parma, Italy.

Last year, some Rolex collectors noticed a trend at the Parma Watch Show. It is well known that there are many vintage Rolex watches that are also extremely rare. However, many have noted that “new” finds are not as plentiful on the market as in years past. Rather, some collectors are securing the best examples of rare Rolex watches then not returning them to the market for a long time. This increases the demand and forces the price of many vintage and rare watches up. For collectors who own rare watches this can be a good thing and can lead to more to become available on the market in hopes of securing a higher price. Those who are looking for some of the best examples of vintage and rare Rolex watches should certainly consider visiting the Parma Watch Show at Mercante in Fiera in Parma, Italy.
