How Much Can I Sell My Rolex Watch For?
When you come to sell your Rolex, the price is dictated by a number of key factors including model number, age, watch condition and current market prices. Although there are several older luxury watches that have gained in value and popularity, Rolex houses many models which have boomed in price. One example is the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. When it was first released in 1963, it wasn't particularly valuable. After a craze when a new edition was released after Baselworld 2016, the model rocketed in value. In 2017, Paul Newman's Rolex Cosmograph Daytona was sold for more than £14 million at auction. Furthermore, the Rolex GMT-Master II collection represents some of the most sought after Rolex watches ever produced. This is primarily due to the unique twin colour Cerachrom bezel. These bezels would be given nicknames such as ‘Batman’ and ‘Pepsi’ due to the various colour schemes incorporated, namely blue and black or red and blue respectively. The “Batman” currently retails at £9,150 but is valued significantly higher with prices upwards of £15,000 If you would like to have an idea of the value of your Rolex watch, enter the details into the Chrono Hunter form here.
Is My Old Rolex Watch Worth Anything?
Yes, the majority of luxury watch brands are considered to be valuable so it’s well worth your time to contact us for an estimate regardless of your watch's condition. In fact, a discontinued Rolex watch or rare Rolex model could be far more valuable than the initial retail price. This is the case for The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref. 6263 “Albino”. Released in 1971, this model is very rare due to its age and was last auctioned by Phillips for a record of over £1.1 million in May 2015. This model was very much sought after because it was owned by Eric Clapton and it is only one of four recognised examples of an “Albino” watch.
What Do I Need to Sell My Rolex Watch?
While there’s a possibility to sell your Rolex without any documentation, luxury watch retailers appreciate it if you have access to them. In most cases, they will increase the value of your watch with the proper box, certificate or corresponding papers. As Rolex is considered to be the most counterfeited watch worldwide, your beloved timepiece will be worth more with the relevant authenticity and provenance. As a new initiative, Rolex has introduced The Certified Pre-owned Programme. This essentially means that pre-owned watches can be given a new level of authenticity by certifying the watch is of the same quality and precision as models just released by Rolex. Providing a two-year warranty from the day of sale, pre-owned Rolex watches will now come with a dedicated Rolex Certified Pre-Owned plaque or card, demonstrating its authenticity and functionality. An additional Rolex certificate will be provided. Before you contact us, search for any service records, warranty papers, Rolex Certified Pre-Owned card or sales receipts as proof of purchase. This will act as evidence and authenticity as well as if any repairs, cleaning or replacement of parts has been undertaken. When you sell your Rolex, our luxury watch retailers place great emphasis on original parts. Therefore, if anything has been replaced, be sure to inform us accordingly.
When Will I Receive Payment For My Rolex Watch?
Once your watch has been received and thoroughly inspected, you will receive immediate payment for your timepiece. Please note the time may vary depending on when the retailer receives your watch. For larger watch retailers, payment may take up to seven days.

There are a wealth of delivery and collection options available through Chrono Hunter. This will be specific to the individual luxury retailer who intends to buy your watch. As soon as you have received an offer, one of our Chrono Hunter team specialists can advise you about the various choices.
Why Are Rolex Watches So Expensive?
Rolex is renowned for using 904L stainless steel. This type of stainless steel requires additional work and specialised skills to manufacture it. Almost every single aspect of a Rolex watch is based in-house, including the cases and movements. This means with the inability to outsource items like specialised alloys for the 904L steel, the production time takes significantly longer. Established in 1945, The Hans Wilsford foundation restricts the production of Rolex watches as it seeks to preserve its reputation. Rolex can only increase watch production by a small percentage each year, protecting its quality control and ensuring models are released to a consistently high standard. The reputation of Rolex watches durability is second to none. Stemming back decades, this includes Edmund Hilary wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual when conquering Mount Everest. One of the most durable Rolex watches is The Rolex Submariner Date. Recognized for its strength from its release in 1953, it remains one of the top specialist dive watches. The Rolex Submariner Date 126610LN retails at £8,650 but sells on the secondary market for in excess of £12,000.
Do Rolex Watches Hold Their Value?
Yes, due to the quality of the materials, the scarcity of the watches and the long standing reputation Rolex has for creating phenomenal pieces. Rolex is regarded as the epitome of luxury and a status symbol with social elites like John Mayer and Jay-Z boasting collections. Meanwhile, The Rolex Daytona series not only hold its value but have the capability of selling for incredible prices. One such piece was Paul Newman’s Rolex Daytona Cosmograph which was auctioned off for $17.8m. Watches such as The Rolex GMT-Master II have a variety of models with unique multicoloured bezels such as the iconic ‘Pepsi’. Retailing at £9150, this prized piece sells for upwards of £17,000 on the secondary market. The ‘Batman’ model retails for the same value but sells upwards of £15,000. The Rolex GMT-Master Ref. 1675 shows how even vintage Rolex watches hold their value. Released in 1972 and worn by “The Godfather” Marlon Brando, it was sold in 2019 for £974,580.
How Can I Find the Model Number For My Rolex Watch?
In terms of finding the number itself, the number tends to be found between the lugs right above the 12 o'clock location on the side of the case. The bracelet must be removed in order to find the number. Furthermore, you can check on the certificates that Rolex issues when you buy your watch new or preowned. The model number can indicate various attributes the watch has such as the model type, bezel, and material of your watch. For example, if your model number is ‘167,1167’, it is a GMT-Master II or if it's ‘62’ it's a Daytona Manual Wind. Specifically, the first two or three digits represent the type of watch, such as ‘167’ being GMT-Master. The second from the last number describes the type of bezel. It must be noted that this is only applicable to dress watches. For example, ‘0’ means polished and ‘3’ means fluted. The last number gives a description of the material. ‘2’ is white gold and ‘6’ is platinum. In order to ascertain the current market value of your watch, identifying The Rolex production date can also assist. If you want to identify your Rolex model number, feel free to contact us and we will be delighted to assist you. An Authentic Rolex should come with a green presentation box, a green seal tag, indicating the watch’s categorization as a Superlative Chronometer and a plastic guarantee card with the watch’s serial number and model number
