There are many reasons why you might choose to sell your Rolex, but before you do, there are a few things to consider. For some Rolex watch owners, selling a Rolex can be the step to buying another model, whether to wear everyday, or keep as an investment.
Yep, that’s right, Rolex watches can be a great investment choice for a number of reasons, with a number of Rolex watches actually appreciating in value over time.
So, if you’ve undoubtedly Googled ‘Where can I sell my Rolex watch near me?’ and here you are – so let’s get stuck into everything you need to know.
Selling your Role watch: What you need to know
Before you look to sell your Rolex watch, it’s important to take a look around for a reputable buyer in order to achieve the best possible buy price. While it may be tempting to list your Rolex watch online, selling such a high value item (that is likely in high demand!) can be tricky.
You’ll need ID
ID is an important step when looking to sell Rolex watches. When selling to a Rolex trader – such as our team here at LH Watch Trade – this allows us to search your Rolex watch through ‘The Watch Register’ for peace of mind all round.
The condition of your Rolex watch
It’s great to know as much as possible about your Rolex watch, including:
Of course, any Rolex trader will want pre owned watches to be in the best possible condition – but it’s important to be upfront about the condition of your Rolex watch when first enquiring with a buyer. If you don’t know the full details, for example, if you inherited the watch, don’t worry. A reputable and experienced Rolex buyer will be able to help fill in the gaps.
It’s usually best to visit a buyer in person when selling a Rolex watch, this will help you get a feel for the buyer, as well as let them inspect your timepiece for the best possible price.
Proof of purchase and Rolex papers
Where possible, having proof of purchase and relevant papers (including the box) will certainly help with achieving the best price.
However, this isn’t 100% necessary, as many buyers will still purchase pre owned Rolex watches without the box and proof of purchase. This depends on the buyer.
Have an idea of price beforehand
If you’re familiar with different Rolex models, and frequently buy or sell Rolex watches, the likelihood is you have a price in mind. This can be a good starting point when looking to sell your Rolex. Of course, it’s important to be fair with the price expected, according to its condition, model, box/papers etc.
Is now a good time to sell my Rolex watch?
Rolex watches have remained in high demand for some time, especially when paired with relatively low supply. Whether you have a new or pre owned Rolex watch, finding the right watch buyer is incredibly important.
Whether Rolex Daytona, Rolex Oyster Perpetual, Rolex Sea Dweller or the Rolex Submariner – you name it, it’ll be quite straightforward to sell your luxury watch. Rolex timepieces hold their value and popularity for good reason, with many reputable Rolex dealers looking to buy and sell Rolex watches at fair, competitive prices.
Of course, not forgetting vintage Rolex watches, either. These are seen as highly valuable and collecting these timepieces is often seen as both a hobby and a form of investment. Many Rolex watch models are heavily sought after, and this is where we can help.
Where can I sell my Rolex?
When we’re looking to sell an item, it can be easy to assume the normal avenues. Whether an online marketplace such as Facebook or eBay, or another type of online listing. However, these aren’t always suitable to such a high value, luxury item.
While online selling on sites like eBay are better protected as a seller (and a buyer), there can often be complications regarding authenticity, returns, and the condition of your Rolex watch.
Instead, for a more seamless experience, choosing to sell your Rolex watch via a reputable watch trader can give you that extra peace of mind. Not only will an experience Rolex trader be able to provide you with all the information required (such as relevant papers needed, etc), but they’ll also take care of everything for you, including swift payment.
But it’s not just Rolex watches these type of traders are looking for, however, many luxury watch brands are also of interest. In this instance, many Rolex models are in high demand, and so, a Rolex dealer will be able to provide a competitive price and make a payment the very same day.
