Even during times where money is tight for so many, the allure of owning a Rolex watch is too much for some people. This does mean that if you are short of cash and have a genuine Rolex watch, no matter how old it is, then you could be sitting on a nice little nest egg that could solve your immediate financial problems.
Clearly how much your watch is valued at will depend on a number of different points and the first one is always how old or rare it is. It makes sense that if you own a watch from the earlier days of the company, then it will be more expensive than one of the more recent models, but at the same time there are also special editions available that have limited numbers and this will clearly bump up the price.
The fact that there are so many different versions out there does of course mean that you need an expert to tell you more about what you have before you and of course the market value at the current rates. Due to this brand of watch being expensive in the first place, it does pay you to go to a trusted jeweler that really does understand the brand as this will ensure that you are given a fair price and you will not be undercut and sadly there are companies out there that will happily do this.
Apart from its rarity, the condition of the watch is also key as it makes sense that if it is in pristine condition it will be worth more than if it is only suitable to be used for parts. Determining the condition takes more than just thinking that it looks good, so instead you once again need an expert eye who can examine not only the exterior of the watch, but also the mechanisms to determine if they are in fine working order or if some repair work has to be carried out.
