It is no secret that Rolex is one of the world’s most famous luxury watch brands. A Rolex watch is a symbol of prestige, success and reliability.
While the brand has never compromised on its watches’ quality and precision, a Rolex watch indeed comes with a hefty price tag.
But what’s more interesting is that a Rolex watch can be an excellent investment. Virtually all Rolex watches tend to hold their value. In fact, the value of some models may appreciate with time.
However, many different factors help in determining which Rolex watch will command the highest resale value.
Here are some Rolex models that are likely to appreciate over time:
The Rolex Daytona is the brand’s legendary chronograph watch. Interesting enough, the Daytona was not an immediate success when it was first introduced.
Thanks to the noteworthy wearers such as the racing driver-and-actor Paul Newman, the second generation of Rolex Daytona, launched in 1988 soon became a sell-out hit with a long waiting list.
Rolex developed and introduced the GMT-Master in conjunction with Pan American airlines. However, the GMT-Master II was released in the early 1980s with an added automatic feature.
Both the GMT-Master and the GMT-Master II models are incredibly functional and sturdy timepieces that hold good resale value.
The Rolex Submariner was originally introduced in 1954 that became a popular choice for recreational and amateur divers.
Featuring a hermetically sealed case, the Submariner was water-resistant up to depths of 200m. While the watch appeared in films like ‘Live and Let Die’ and ‘Dr No’, it was universalised as James Bond’s watch of choice.
If you ask ‘which Rolex holds its value best?’, a firm aspirant would ideally be the Rolex Day-Date. Rolex released the Day-Date model in 1956.
However, where lay the significant difference between the Day-Date and other models?
The difference is in the day display complication along with the date.
Rolex has introduced the Day-Date collection in a selection of different metals and finishes over the years. The Day-Date is undoubtedly a watch that is likely to appreciate as time goes by.
