Giving Up Your Trusty Wristwatch: Sell Your Rolex

August 30, 2017

BY Paul Altieri


For many luxury watch collectors, selling a timepiece is a normal part of the acquisition and turnover process. While some collectors purchase watches with the intent of keeping them for the rest of their lives, many others believe that the ownership experience of a watch is essential to one’s overall appreciation of it, and the only way to truly understand a watch (and their potential appreciation for it) is to actually own the timepiece and experience it firsthand.

There may come a time where you need to sell your Rolex.

Some people purchase luxury timepieces because they can be seen as a form of investment. While the vast majority of true luxury watches are generally able to retain at least some of their initial value, certain select timepieces have the potential to appreciate throughout the years. As is the nature of any investment, a sale must take place at some point in order to receive the returns on that investment, and many luxury watches are purchased with the sole intent of resale at a later point in time.

Why You May Sell Your Rolex

For the avid collector of luxury timepieces, selling your Rolex watches can be an inevitable side of the collecting experience. Some watches are let go because they simply do not get enough wrist time, while others end up getting sold to fund future purchases. Consequently, some of the factors to consider when purchasing a luxury timepiece are its ability to retain its value and the ease with which it can be liquidated should circumstances call for it.

If you need to sell your Rolex, go through a trusted brand who will give you the most.

While most true luxury timepieces fill these criteria to some degrees or another, no manufacturer produces watches that do so with such consistent regularity as Rolex. With an unparalleled level of international brand recognition, Rolex watches can almost be considered a commodity; and even non-working examples can often retain the majority of their total resale value.

Rolex has been manufacturing the same several lines of watches for the better part of a century. Additionally, the overall designs of their watches have stayed very true to their original roots throughout the years, meaning that a Rolex manufactured 30 years ago is still every bit as relevant and wearable as it was when it first left the factory.

Even vintage Rolex watches are valuable.

An Iconic Symbol

Due to their timeless designs, robust build quality, and widespread recognition as an international symbol of personal achievement, there is always some level of demand for Rolex watches. Should you choose to purchase a Rolex and ultimately wish to sell it at some point in the future, you will likely be able to quickly line up a buyer and recoup a fair portion of your initial investment.

The Day-Date is the international symbol of success.

For those that want the experience of wearing a vast range of luxury watches, but who also do not want to indefinitely own every single timepiece that they have ever purchased, selling watches is an inevitable part of the collecting process. The ability to retain value and the ease with which a timepiece can be sold can vary greatly. Rolex watches have an amazing ability to retain value and possess a higher degree of liquidity than comparable products from almost any other luxury manufacturer.
