How to trade your old watch for a newer Rolex

The best part about the beginning of a new year is that it signals a fresh start. And what better way for a watch enthusiast to have a fresh start than to sport a new watch! With Bob’s Watches, it’s easy to trade in your existing Rolex watch for another model. For instance, if you currently own a Rolex Submariner ref. 16610 but have your eye on the latest Submariner ref. 116610 with the larger case and new ceramic bezel, then getting your hands on one is easier than you think. Read on to find out how to trade in your old watch for a newer Rolex from Bob’s Watches.

Our trade-in program at Bob’s Watches is simple and straightforward. You can begin by browsing our fantastic selection of pre-owned Rolex watches to find the one that catches your eye. For example, we have a large assortment of the current ceramic Submariner ref. 116610 in stock—most with box and papers and some in unworn condition. Use our “Compare Watches” feature to find the one that suits you best. This new feature makes it simple to compare things like condition, price, production year, availability of box and papers, and so on.
