About Rolex Watches

Rolex is by far the most recognized luxury watch manufacturer the world over. Since its inception in 1908, Rolex has become a symbol of status and success. That's why high-end watch collectors are willing to pay top-dollar for pre-owned Rolex watches.

Unlike second-hand cars, pre-owned Rolex watches do not have an expiration date. Rolex watches are crafted to last and that is why demand is so high. These luxury timepieces are dependable for decades as they are founded on premium Swiss craftsmanship.

However, purchasing a new Rolex watch can be a very costly venture which is why pre-owned Rolex watches are now so prevalent and in-demand. Which leads to another question - is now a good time to sell your Rolex?

There are a number of different factors that affect how much your Rolex will sell for. Before you sell a Rolex watch, make sure to look for its 5-8 digit engraved serial number. This helps to determine the value of your watch by knowing the approximate date or year that it was produced.

The serial numbers on your Rolex are machine engraved on the watch case side between the strap lugs at 6 o'clock. However, from 2005 onward, Rolex started inscribing serial numbers onto the inside rim of the watch, or the 'rehaut', for styling reasons.

Another thing to look for is your Rolex watch model number, which is located on the side of the case at 12 o'clock. To see it, you must detach the strap from the case. These 2 numbers will help the buyers evaluate the worth of your watch.

Other watch characteristics that could boost the value of a Rolex are the type of finish, such as damaskeene plates (also known as pearlage or Cotes de Geneve), blue colored screws, diamonds or other gemstones set at the hour marks. Within the watch itself, moto-barrels, rounded spokes, and escaped wheels with chiseled teeth affect the total watch value.
