How Does My Rolex Appraisal Work?

Once your Rolex arrives at our secure facility, our team of experts will carefully appraise your watch based on:

  • Recent resale values for similar Rolex watches
  • The overall condition of your watch, e.g. scratches and working order
  • The presence of box and papers
  • Optional materials used in your watch, including precious metals and diamonds

With a national network of luxury watch buyers, an expert team of appraisers, and state-of-the-art technology, no other pre-owned Rolex buyer can match the value we provide.

How much is My Rolex Worth?

The four most important factors affecting the resale value of a used Rolex watch include:

  • Model and Serial Number

    Rolex produces many different watch models at multiple price points, each with a different value on the used market. Collectors and watch lovers have preferences for some models which will affect the value of a used Rolex. The Model and Serial Numbers on every Rolex can be used to determine the year, material, and movement of a watch.

  • Materials used in the construction of the watch

    The materials used in the construction of a Rolex affect its trade-in value on the used market—as well as its original purchase price! Multiple material options exist for the bracelet, dial and bezel of a Rolex. For bracelets, platinum is the most desired, followed by gold and stainless steel. Bezels can be made from gold, platinum, titanium or ceramic. And the dial of a Rolex can be made from multiple materials, with many featuring diamonds.

  • Presence of the original box and authentication papers

    Even the cheapest Rolex comes in a box with paperwork that proves the authenticity of the timepiece. Selling a watch with its original box and authentication paperwork will typically bring a higher return than selling a Rolex with no papers.

  • The condition of the watch

    How well a Rolex was treated affects its value. Sometimes shallow scratches can be buffed out to avoid reducing the value of the watch. But if any part of the timepiece has been deeply scratched or blemished, then this imperfection must be factored in to the watch’s resale value. The bracelet of the watch may be stretched out, or there may be links missing. Keep your Rolex in tip-top shape to maximize its worth.

To help your Rolex keeps its value, make sure to hold on to the original box and papers and keep your watch in good working order.

The Story of Rolex

While known today as the most famous Swiss luxury watchmaker, Rolex was founded in London, England in 1905. From the start, the brand focused on precision, with one model winning an award usually reserved for the more advanced marine chronometers. The company moved to Switzerland in 1919 when WWI drove taxes too high back home.

From then on, Rolex became known for selling innovative luxury watches, creating the first waterproof wristwatch called the Oyster in 1926, and the first wristwatch with an automatically updating date on the dial in 1945. Today, Rolex watches for men and women are valued for their exceptional quality.

The Rolex Name and "Crown" Logo

The exact meaning of “Rolex” may never be known. The word is easily spoken in many languages. The capital letters of the logo are the same size, making the design easy to work with and the word "Rolex" may be a contraction of the French words horlogerie exquise, meaning "exquisite clockwork."

Much like the meaning of the word "Rolex" itself, the symbolism of the Rolex Crown logo is not known today. When the logo was first created in 1925, it featured a gold crown above the name “Rolex” written in green and the crown has a clear connection to the Rolex motto: "A Crown for Every Achievement."
