Used Rolex in Florida
Florida residents love to shop for luxury and fashion items. From retirees to successful millennials, Florida is an economic powerhouse with a lot of big ballers ready to spend.
But even with all the money on the table, these big spenders are not shy to buy second hand Rolex watches. There are so many benefits of buying a used Rolex watch rather than a new Rolex watch. One of the main ones being it is the only way to get highly coveted and discontinued Rolex references, which watch collectors so greatly desire. When it comes to Rolex, “used” definitely doesn’t mean “inferior”. It means high value and exclusivity. It also doesn’t mean cheaper, as many used Rolex watches are selling for more than their original MSRP price.
Nevertheless, if you are still wondering whether should buy a new or used Rolex, read this post to help with your decision on that: New vs Used Luxury Swiss Watches

Why Buy Used Rolex Watches?
We already mentioned a few reasons why buying used Rolex watches is smart, but let’s go over a few more reasons why you should buy used Rolex watches.
Price & Resale Value
The cost of a used watch is typically significantly less than a new Rolex (unless it is a highly coveted/discontinued reference). What’s more, when buying a used watch, you won’t lose any value “when taking it off the lot” like you would with a new watch. Generally speaking, a Rolex will lose a little value after purchasing it new, if you wanted to resell it that is. Then, over time, it slowly increases, and after around 5-10 years it will be back at its original MSRP price when selling it on the secondhand market (and often times in-demand Rolex watches exceed their original price). With used Rolex watches, the resale value won’t drop when changing to another owners hands as it doesn’t make a difference how many owners it has, it’s either pre-owned or not.
Buying used is the only way you can get those discontinued references that are so highly sought after.
Collectors love some good patina. If a vintage Rolex has patina on original pieces, the value will be greater, not less.
Best option for aftermarket customizations
Used Rolex watches are a good choice if you want to customize a Rolex with diamonds!
All in all, opening up your options to used Rolex watches allows for a far greater selection to choose from and there is no downside in terms of value. So, it’s a win-win!
How to buy used Rolex watches
There are a few things you should consider about the watch itself…
Condition: Make sure the condition of the watch is good and the pieces are original. If the pieces aren’t original, that should be reflected in the price.
Warranty & Servicing: Find out what the process will be for your warranty and its servicing if needed. Generally, you don’t want to service a vintage Rolex, so try to only buy vintage Rolex watches that are in good condition with original parts.
Price: Does the price seem fair? Do some research to see if the price is right.
Paperwork: Does the Rolex have its original paperwork? Having the Rolex paperwork for any given watch should put your mind at ease.
Then there are a few things you need to consider personally…
- What model? Do you want a Rolex sports watch or dress watch? Do you want a Submariner or Daytona? Etc.
- Contemporary model vs vintage model?
- Is the Authorized Dealer trustworthy? What is their reputation?
- What is their warranty and return policy? Do they offer loaner watches when/if the watch needs servicing?
These are just a few tips. The point is, be a smart buyer and don’t rush. It’s an expensive purchase, so talk things out with your spouse and the dealer so you are happy with your purchase in the long run.
How to buy used Rolex online?
Consider the points above and get on the phone and speak with the authorized Rolex dealer. Find out the process. Get pics or videos of the watch. Ask for paperwork. Buying online is safe as long as you do your due diligence.
