Often, we find that when someone is wanting to resell their Rolex, it’s because they want to step up and buy another more expensive model. There are also of course situations where people come to us to sell their time piece due to a forced liquidation for a variety of reasons. Either way, we always work to obtain the highest return for our client.
There are five Rolex bracelet types:
Oyster, Jubilee, President, Pearlmaster, and the leather strap.
Due to the popularity of Rolex watches, they are one of the most counterfeited. They are often illegally sold online, swap meets and alike. Their quality can vary from extremely low quality, to the average quality of a fashion watch that might be valued in the $25 range. No one should ever purchase a Rolex watch without documentation of authenticity. One of the easiest ways to know if a Rolex watch authentic or counterfeit is by it’s weight. Rolex watches are very heavy. It is interesting to know that O. J. Simpson wore a counterfeit Rolex during his 1994 murder trial. Just another fun fact to share at cocktail parties.
If you are thinking of selling your Rolex or other luxury watch, having the original box, certificate of authenticity, and original receipt will be helpful in getting the highest return. If you have extra links for the watch band, that would be good to include in the sale as the potential buyer may have a larger wrist.
