The Perfect Holiday Gift

A Rolex is commonly at the top of a wishlist for many men and women.

Tis the season to search for the perfect holiday gift.

Top 5 Reasons

The following are 5 reasons as to why a pre-owned Rolex makes for the ideal gift for the holidays:

  • Amazing deals. Because of the increased quantities of watches sold in the face of a challenging economy, there are a wide variety of used Rolex out there. Do your research and will be sure to find the perfect model. Watches like the Rolex Air-King or the Rolex Date are great entry level watches.


  • Get more watch for less money. Instead of buying a low-end model brand new, it is possible to spend the same amount for a much more valuable model. Purchasing used Rolex brings pricing down on many models by nearly 70 percent. When you purchase a new Rolex, its value is immediately diminished, which makes buying a pre-owned model an intelligent decision.


  • Certified Rolex. Many fear that by purchasing used they will fall prey to buying a Rolex that isn’t authentic. A growing number of used dealers only accept certified Rolex and will provide you with both valid certification and the original box. Make sure when dealing with brokers that they provide proof of authenticity for all watches you consider.


  • Wise investment. Used Rolexes are an amazing investment in today’s world. As described above, when buying new a watch’s value falls the minute you walk out the door. Purchasing a pre-owned Rolex provides an instant investment that will continue to gain in worth as precious metals prices increase in the near future.


  • Just like new. Once you begin your search for a used Rolex, you will be amazed at how many are practically like new. The reason for such quality is because historically most Rolex owners treat their watches with the utmost care, while others have held theirs as investments and barely worn them before selling to a broker.

The sky is the limit when searching for a Rolex as a holiday present! The secret is to find a Rolex buyer or dealers that you trust. Wishing you and yours a beautiful holiday season!
