Can I sell my Rolex President?

 Yes! If you’d like to offload your Rolex President, now is a good time to do so. The pre-owned market for Rolex watches has never been healthier, and if you no longer wear or enjoy your timepiece, moving on to something else with the funds you could generate from its sale might be a good idea.

 As the demand for pre-loved Rolex watches has grown, so too has the level of service supporting these transactions improved. Bob’s Watches is one of the largest platforms for the buying and selling pre-owned timepieces with a keen specialization in the Rolex brand.

What is a Presidential Rolex?

 The “President” is the nickname of the iconic bracelet associated with the Rolex Day-Date. Still, the model’s association with significant world leaders has meant that the term President or “Presidential” are just as commonly used to refer to the watch model itself.

 And why not? With one of the most iconic dial layouts, case silhouettes, and bracelets the watchmaking industry has ever seen, the Rolex President is a far more suitable name for the humbly named Day-Date.

Where can I sell my Rolex President?

 The best place to sell your Rolex President is undoubtedly a trusted and experienced pre-loved specialist dealer like Bob’s Watches. There are many advantages to working with an expert in the pre-owned field. We can gauge the value of your watch accurately, taking into account current market demand, the condition of the watch, and the necessary repairs or refurbishments before it can go on sale.

 We have very advanced inspection protocols that ensure your watch is treated with the utmost care and respect before deciding whether you’d like to commit to the sale. Our transparent pricing charts lay everything on the table so you can feel confident about selling your watch for a fair amount.

 Selling used watches oneself is possible, but time-consuming and devoid of guarantees. Businesses like Bob’s Watches have built their reputations on being able to keep both sellers and buyers happy while aiding the flow of pre-loved luxury watches between former and future owners.

Does Rolex Sell pre-owned President Watches directly?

 No. Rolex doesn’t even sell new watches directly. Rolex works with an established network of trusted retailers all around the globe. And, in much the same way, a similarly widespread and well-thought-of network of resalers has sprung up to meet the demand of pre-loved traders. Bob’s Watches is one of the oldest and most experienced platforms for selling your Rolex and picking up another pre-owned model whenever you want!

How much does a used Rolex President sell for?

The Rolex President is one of the brand’s most iconic cornerstone pieces. It has graced the wrists of many powerful men in history and is a true statement of power and refinement. As such, this model carries a pretty hefty value, even on the pre-loved market.

When we buy Rolex President watches in to be serviced, submitted to stock, and offered for sale, we tend to pay between $7,500 to $30,000 depending on the materials used, the reference’s rarity, and the amount of work that needs to be carried out to get the watch into a saleable condition.

You can expect the resale prices of these pieces to be somewhere in the region of $10-35,000.

How much does it cost to fix a Rolex President?

That really depends on the condition of the watch. Rolex watches are excellently made, which means they can stand up to a lot of punishment, but they are not invincible. Watchmaking oils should be replaced every few years to ensure the movement’s optimum operation and long-term health. It is also essential to check the movement regularly to ensure all parts are in good working order. It is necessary to verify that the movement’s function isn’t being impeded by dust, dirt, or swarf, which may have entered the watch during hand winding, time setting, or upon sustaining an impact.

Our watchmakers can return almost any vintage Rolex to its former working glory. One of the most stressful aspects of selling your Rolex President directly to another watch lover is that the burden of guarantee falls to you. You could choose not to provide a guarantee, but that will vastly reduce the amount a buyer will be willing to pay. When you sell your watch to Bob’s Watches, we take care of its maintenance before pricing it accordingly for resale. Upon selling your watch, we provide a guarantee of our work and have the capacity to stand by that guarantee should anything in the watch fail unexpectedly.

Can I sell my Rolex President without the box and papers?

Simply put, yes, you can. A great many vintage Rolexes are sold without their boxes and papers. Remember, when a lot of these watches were first bought, the idea that wristwatches would become collectible and appreciate in value was unheard of.

 How important the absence of the box and papers may be in regards to the price depends on the model. The best thing to do is to get in touch with our dedicated team here at Bob’s, and our advisors will assist with your query.

Do Rolex watches have resale value?

 Yes, Rolex watches tend to hold their value better than most other luxury brands. Certain models have even seen their resale prices soar due to the scarcity of the modern equivelents (watches such as the Submariner or GMT Master II, for example). The Rolex President is a catalog stalwart and holds its value well thanks to a timeless design teamed with a precious metal housing.

 If you’re looking to capitalize on the current popularity of the Rolex President and cash in your chips in favor of one of the streaking models, now is a good time to sell and “upgrade”. Talk to one of our Bob’s Watches team members to see what watches we have in stock that you might like to make your next purchase.

How can I tell if my Rolex President is genuine?

Firstly, you can check its provenance. How did you come by it? Do you know the watch’s history? Does it have its box and/or papers? A good starting point is to check your watch’s serial number. Your Rolex President is likely to have a serial number beginning with one of the following numbers: 65xx, 66xx, 18xx, 180xx, 182xx, 183xx, 189xx, 118xxx, 218xxx, or 228xxx. If you’re not able to identify its genuineness for sure, then ask us!

At Bob’s Watches, we have an experienced team full of the necessary expertise to spot fakes and to find extra information about genuine Rolex Watches. It’s an essential part of our job. We only deal in authentic watches, of course.

When is the best time to sell my Rolex President?

The simple answer is, “wehenevr you’re ready to.” The resale market for Rolex watches is performing strongly. It is unlikely to experience a serious crash any time soon, and while there will always be small peaks and troughs, the prices a steadily climbing.

 If you have your eye on another Rolex watch and you’re looking to sell your Rolex President to fund a new purchase, then getting everything in motion sooner rather than later might be wise (assuming you are looking at moving over to an even more collectible and high-performing model).

 At Bob’s Watches we’ll never rush you into a sale you’re not ready to make, nor will we push you to buy before you’re 100% comfortable with your prospective purchase. Our role is to support you on your buying journey whenever you need us.
