Resale Value

 

By clicking on a column you are able to display its value.

A second-hand Rolex Explorer II today is worth double of the official sales price from back in 1994. Discounted over the last 22 years, the average annual gain in value amounts to 3.2%. The value of a new watch falls down to its market value after purchase. The retail sales price usually includes a relatively high retailer margin, which represents a markup to the market value of a watch. By purchasing a used Rolex Explorer II at a price near its market value, you are able to achieve a higher rate of return. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in a second hand and well-maintained watch, ideally with original papers and box.
