Benefits of Buying Pre-Owned Rolex Watches
More Extensive Collection of Rolex Watches To Choose FromAlthough purchasing a brand new Rolex certainly has its distinct advantages, the truth is that you are limited in choice to purchasing Rolex models that are currently on sale. In case the collection gets a makeover, it is likely that the Rolex you had your heart set on may not be a part of it. Also keep in mind that many limited edition models of luxury watches are only sold new for a brief period of time. On the other hand, if you go on the second hand Rolex market, you can find a much wider array of Rolex models you can choose from. If you browse the Diamonds by Raymond Lee store, you will find several discontinued models, previous versions of current models, and extremely rare timepieces. We thought that an excellent way to explain this is to determine the various combinations that are available just on a popular yellow gold Rolex called the Lady-Datejust Pearlmaster. Keep in mind that if we only consider the base Pearlmaster bracelet, this specific model has at least ten dials (or faces) and two bezel options you can choose from. It comes out to forty five different possibilities in only this single example.
Rolex Watches Are Designed and Built To LastMany people think that purchasing a pre-owned Rolex means getting a watch that has a limited shelf-life; however, this is simply not true. Actually, unlike the massive number of bulk-produced watches on the market which might only serve you well for about two to three years, a Rolex watch is manufactured using premium materials and is designed to keep working for several years to come. The vast majority of used Rolex watches can be restored to full working order with a little servicing, and can easily serve you for many years. Moreover, used Rolex watches are often sold with a warranty of at least one year. This will make sure you are fully covered in the unlikely case that you do face any problem with your elegant timepiece.
A Pre-Owned Rolex Can Even Appreciate In ValueIn many situations, the pre-owned Rolex you have purchased can actually appreciate in value with the passage of time. This may happen due to a variety of reasons. The Rolex model may get discontinued, which can instantly make it much rarer, hence the rise in value; or new technology might make a previous model a collector’s item. A lot of people also view pre-owned Rolex watches as a profitable investment opportunity. In case the model is a little damaged, the cost to fix it might be very small; however, the increase in value for fixing the watch may be very substantial. You may also be able to perform certain modifications to your Rolex watch to drive up its value. Incremental Updates Ever wondered why the Louis Vuitton Speedy or Chanel flap bag continues to be an incredibly popular luxury staple for many women’s wardrobe and retains its resale value? Especially when you compare it to several other trendy handbag collections that fashion houses tend to put out every season. It is because these fantastic bags have basically looked, more or less, the same for many years. Just like the Rolex Submariner or Datejust, these bags have established themselves as antonyms of trendy; a product that is always on point, can hold your style together, and is so classic and beautiful that only incremental updates are needed.
Your Pre-Owned Rolex Watch Would Be Restored To Like-NewFor people who are contemplating buying a second-hand product it is perfectly okay to wonder or even worry about its physical appearance or visible condition. And it goes without saying that the same thought process also applies when you are buying a pre-owned Rolex. Just like others you might be worried that the Rolex watch would look worn or shabby, that it would have a lot of scratches, or that it would be discolored or dented. That being said, on the whole, Rolex models are sufficiently robust and durable to endure everyday use with style and elegance without showing obvious signs of abrasion or wear and tear. In addition, all of the pre-owned Rolex models sold through Diamonds by Raymond Lee are thoroughly and carefully serviced and cleaned before being sold; this ensures that the watch you purchase looks as good as new.
Some of the popular Rolex models available at Diamonds by Raymond Lee include:
The SubmarinerThe Submariner is considered the most coveted and classic sports watch of all time; it is a true icon. Some celebrities that love to wear this watch include Steve McQueen, Robert Redford and Sean Connery. Often considered the best diving watch in the world, the Submariner is a symbol of good taste, success, fine craftsmanship, rugged elegance as well as a love for the sea. The maiden Submariner debuted way back in 1954 and Sean Connery worn it as Agent 007 in the initial four James Bond movies; this forever cemented its desirability and reputation. The watch was also adopted and endorsed by Britain’s Royal Navy.
The Explorer II
It is one of the most coveted and exclusive Rolex models, and is especially designed for race car drivers so that they can easily keep track of their speed using its unique tachymeter scale that can calculate miles per hour. Some of the vintage examples of The Daytona particularly the rare variant popularized by Paul Newman could fetch north of $1 million at auctions. Keep in mind that the earliest models of Daytona appeared back in 1963, and were named after the famous Florida racetrack where a lot of speed records were set by enthusiasts and where Rolex has always been the official timekeeper. You may be surprised to know that there is a rather long waiting list to purchase a new watch and most boutiques struggle to keep these timepieces in stock for long. And also expect to shell out twice as much, or maybe more, for the Daytona as you will for the Submariner. Some notable fans of this watch are John Mayer, Paul Newman and Ed Sheeran. You will Purchase like a True Collector Keep in mind that what we have just laid out in open for you is basically the key differences between the standard retail structure and purchasing a Rolex from a reliable and independent online watch dealer such as Diamonds by Raymond Lee. The way each company is organized can either accentuate or hinder what they can do for you. That being said, we realize that we can reason for different type of customers all day; however, what it essentially boils down to is the kind of individual you really are. The Indifferent It is worth noting that there are some people out there who would always purchase a new watch from an authorized dealer. An indifferent person has a need to buy a product that has tags on it in order to satisfy his or her psychological requirement. In these cases, this psychological need would always trump reasoning. These indifferent buyers do not usually mind that they are a just another number and are subject to retail margin and tax. They are often blinded and overtaken by impulse or mesmerized and captivated by what the brick-and-mortar stores have to offer. Also, these types of buyers do not even consider the salesperson’s priorities or passion for fine and exclusive timepieces, or lack thereof. Keep in mind that there would always be some people who find it simpler and easier to buy this way. The Collector Even in case you are looking to purchase your first Rolex or would not exactly call yourself as collector, you can still purchase like a collector if you go for a pre-owned Rolex. This is because collectors do not often purchase brand new watches (except for the initial release of a model). This is because they really understand the game. It is something that you play and excel at, choosing not to be a mere pawn. An enthusiast or collector is equally interested in the buying process as he is in the final result. He/she appreciates what they can gain from the purchase and also the savvy culture that surrounds it. What you should value even more is the fact that if you purchase from an independent and reliable watch dealer, such as Diamonds by Raymond Lee, you will get a Rolex watch from collectors and enthusiasts who are equally passionate as you.
