No. 19: Rolex Explorer I Series 214270
The current model of the Rolex Explorer series is 214270. According to our observations, this watch has been one of the most popular models for many years. Does it offer consumers the impression that “unexpectedly, the market price has barely risen?” when compared to Rolex’s two main watches, the Daytona and GMT Master-II, which will be presented next. However, this is not the case. Please review the market pricing for this watch over the last four years. Is it supposed to “remain almost the same?” This is what the purpose of this post is to stress! The second-hand market for Rolex watches is growing year after year. This is due to the fact that the local luxury watch industry is rapidly developing, and there are an increasing number of specialty stores for buying and selling watches, which leads to an increase in demand.
Every watch store wants a Rolex. Nobody will allow the Rolex in their business run out of stock and miss out on a chance to make money. As a result, Rolex’s buying price is equal to the market’s continuous expansion, and the market is appealing. However, once Rolex watches are on the market, the market price frequently falls as market circulation increases. In 2010, Explorer I (Explorer series) 214270 was launched.
Despite being on the market for over a decade, it remains a popular and unrivaled long-selling model. Not only does it have a devoted following, but its present market conditions are also improving. In 2016, Rolex significantly altered the dial style of the Explorer I 214270. The dial was upgraded in 2016 to include not just longer and thicker hands (hour and minutes hands), but also new luminous paint on the three-hour markers 3, 6, and 9.
Which of the new and old Explorer I 214270 dials has a greater resale value? Regarding this topic, the response is that, at the moment, such “specification differences” have not resulted in a significant price difference. Due to the new dial’s relatively recent manufacture years, all purchasers who presently own the new dial 214270 should have utilized it within a few years. A greater valuation may be attained if the degradation over time is not severe and does not show signs of usage.
No. 18: Rolex Explorer I Series 14270
Increase: 107.1 %
The Explorer 14270 is two generations older than the current model 214270. Kimura Takuya, a well-known actor, once wore this watch while performing Monday 9pm drama series (Prime Time on Monday night in Japan). It was also at this period that Rolex watches became popular in Japan. I believe many 14270 watch aficionados purchased it at the time. Because the Explorer I is recognized as a must-have watch for office professionals and the price is not prohibitively expensive, it was formerly seen as a watch with poor resale value. However, this is no longer the case. Today, the Explorer I market remains popular, and it has become a popular watch that may symbolize Rolex. It should be noted, however, that this watch is identical to the recently launched 214270. Although the second-hand market is expanding, it is not expanding “rapidly.” On the contrary, the current price of 14270 has declined slightly when compared to the average purchase price in 2019. However, its second-hand market has just begun to recover.The same is true with the 214270. This is due to an industry rumor that “Is the current model of the Explorer series about to be discontinued?” and it is reported to be true. Of course, the market’s interest in the Explorer series is growing. In this case, the 14270 just has the distinction of being “the last 36mm watch in the Explorer I series,” which is enough to make it a difficult-to-find collecting goal for collectors. Don’t miss out on this wave of selling chances if you already possess this watch!!
No. 17: Rolex Sea-Dweller Series 16600
Increase: 108.7 %
The No. 17 model was produced in the Sea-Dweller series 16600 from 1990 to 2000! Is the price increase for this model really that significant? No, it does not. The year that this watch climbed the most was 2017, when the data for this study was collected, and the cause for the growth is likely to be the new marine diver watch introduced by Rolex at the Baselworld Watch Fair in 2017.
※New model Sea-Dweller 126600
Rolex introduced the 126600 watch to commemorate the Sea-Dweller series’ 50th anniversary. On this watch, Rolex recreates the famous elements of the first generation Sea-Dweller “red lettering (Sea-Dweller lettering on the dial is red)”. It used to be a popular issue. Prior to this, while the Sea-Dweller series was always popular, it was never as popular as the Submariner series. When the 16600 series was retired in 2008, it did not even usher in a new kind of convergence. However, when Rolex released the 126600 and re-engraved the red writing, there has been a surge in collectors seeking Sea-Dweller representative pieces.Since Rolex first used a fish-eye magnifying glass calendar window in its new invention 126610, and the casing was also increased to 43mm, there have been voices claiming that “the exquisite and compact Sea-Dweller in the previous 16600 era is better!!”. Please visit the store for an estimate if you possess a Sea-Dweller 16600 watch with a serial number beginning with V or M. Serial numbers that begin with these two English alphabets are manufactured in limited quantities, are rarer than the standard version, and their worth is rising.
Of course, given the price of this watch rises year after year, if you care about having a 16600 in your hand, please come to the store for an estimate, even if it is a standard version!
No. 16: Rolex Daytona Series 16520
Increase: 111.1 %Model is no longer available. Excellent design sense. Extremely precious and uncommon. 16520 is the perpetual desire of watch collectors. It is the most popular model of the Daytona series watches. Its market has expanded rapidly in recent years. The most recent average purchase price in 2020 is nearly as expensive as all present Rolex watches. But why is it placed just 16th in this list?
The reason behind this is that the market for this watch peaked in 2017. This article does not have an advantage in the list because it ranks price increases from 2017 to 2020. Nonetheless, we can observe the enormous asset worth of Daytona 16520 and the tremendous market demand for it. The latter version with a serial number beginning with P (2000), as well as the previous version with a serial number beginning with A (1999), are two variations that raise the total price average. Coupled with the unique phenomena particular to Rolex, that is, the rare version will drive up the general version, resulting in the watch market’s sustained desirability.
Daytona 16520 was available from 1988 until 2000. The manufacturing duration was up to 12 years, and the circulation quantity was clearly not little. As a result, for individuals who purchased it accidentally at the time, simply selling this watch may feel like a windfall. Of course, even if you merely purchased this watch in the last few years, its second-hand market is progressively increasing, bringing with it a nice selling chance.
No. 15: Rolex Submariner Series 116610LN
Increase: 115.9 %You can’t talk about Rolex without mentioning the renowned vintage Submariner line. The Submariner is Rolex’s most iconic and iconic diving watch. The high-value model 116610LN with black dial and black bezel is still popular among watch enthusiasts. Yes, the Submariner is a popular Rolex series. Its popularity rivals that of Daytona and GMT-Master II. They are all extremely popular series that have an impact on Rolex’s total market. However, because the all-black design of the 116610LN is too basic in a series of watches, and the manufacturing period has been nearly 10 years since 2010, the price has never risen to the point of being out of reach. This is certainly welcome news for the typical customer.
Even if you are a collector looking to sell as soon as feasible, 116610LN has certain benefits. The Submariner series is a high-performance diving watch with a depth rating of 300 meters and exceptional water resistance. Even after many years of usage, it is difficult to generate use marks. The all-black design of 116610LN has produced a consistent market demand, and its worth can always be maintained above a certain level due to its tough and lasting properties. By the way, the Submariner series watches, like the Explorer I, have a pattern of climbing prices once manufacture is discontinued (revised). The market for the Submariner series is now increasing, which might be attributable to this. Readers must keep pay attention to its market trends!
No. 14: Rolex Daytona Series 116520
Increase: 123.2 %
For a long time, the Daytona series’ representative models have been in high demand on the market. Nonetheless, the growth in this series in recent years has been astounding… Although the rumors of “it should decrease soon” are unending, the market desire for it continues to climb. The extent to which Daytona retains its worth is simply incredible.
The 116520, which will be launched next, is also one of the reasons for the Daytona series’ high costs. The previous generation Daytona 116520 was born in 2000 and was produced until 2016, when it was discontinued and updated. When the Rolex market is not as strong as it is now, the market transaction price of this watch is already greater than the set price. Although Daytona’s current model 116500LN has been replaced by a Cerachrom ceramic ring, due to the use of stainless-steel bezels prior to 116520, many consumers prefer 116520 steel rings for this. Aside from the steel ring, another hallmark of this watch is the tiny dial with precious metal borders. The masculine design has captured a group of fans who love these watches.
Although the present market price is gradually declining in comparison to the market top in 2019, the purchasing price is still among the finest. Some collectors consider the Daytona 116520 to be a watch that “sells and earns,” and its market value is fairly high. Furthermore, because to the 16-year manufacture duration, 116520 has several versions. The market will alter dramatically depending on the version’s differing specs. A later production version, for example, with a new buckle, a new guaranteed card, or even a random serial number, may fetch a high price. Even the early-manufactured version is beneficial as long as the quality is enough. Using the passing of time, second-hand goods of good quality have become increasingly rare on the market, causing the price of discontinued model to rise.
If you have a Daytona 116520 watch, regardless of the vintage or version, it is advised that you get a quote. It is entirely easy to predict the unfathomably high price. Please use the free valuation service to confirm the worth of the 116520 in your possession!
No. 13: Rolex Explorer II Series 16570
Increase: 125 %The Explorer II 16570, which will be launched next, is the Explorer II’s previous generation. It was produced from 1991 to 2011, and it is a rather long-lived generation. Among Rolex’s various sports series watches, it appears to be a touch understated and uninteresting. However, it is a Rolex “specially designed for cave explorers” watch, which has the benefit of standing out in a crowded market. The 16570 is a well-liked watch with consistent demand. The 16570 is extensively supported by a diverse client base, ranging from “newbies buying a Rolex for the first time” to “collectors who want a special Rolex other than the regular model.”
Its market circumstances have traditionally demonstrated a sluggish growth tendency, but in recent years, the rate of price increase has accelerated. There are several causes for this scenario. One of the reasons is that the market’s desire for “5-digit Rolex models” (vintage watches created in the 1970s and 1990s that are not antique but rather classic) is strong.
When a Rolex is referred to be an antique Rolex or an old-fashioned Rolex, there will always be some collectors who have amassed a small collection of Rolex or other high-end watches. With the recent rise of the luxury watch industry, sales of certain antique timepieces have also begun to emerge in the market. As a result, whether it is an antique Rolex, an old Rolex, or a post-old Rolex created in the subsequent age, the market for some ancient watches has begun to emerge. Demand is gradually increasing. Explorer II 16570 in particular, not only because it is a classic as previously said, but also because it combines numerous traditional aspects not seen in contemporary models.
The present model lacks features like as a reasonably sized 40mm casing, a red 24-hour hand, and so forth. Furthermore, because the price of this watch is relatively low among 5-digit models, it is quite active in the trade market. “It can be sold at an excellent price” is the highest degree of Rolex investment. This aim is not difficult to achieve depending on the timing of your purchase. Explorer II 16570 is a timepiece that may help you attain your objectives.
No. 12: Rolex Submariner Date Series 116610LV
Following that, we will reveal the 12th watch, which are the current Submariner versions! This watch is constructed in the Rolex brand colors, with a green bezel and a green dial, and has an eye-catching and distinctive appearance. Submariner 116610LV is the model number. Fans of the show dubbed him “The Hulk.” In 2019, the market for numerous Rolex watches achieved a high record. In the presence of expensive watches, the average purchase price of 116610LV might still remain ultra-high, indicating that it is an extremely uncommon watch.
This is mostly owing to the pricing of The Hulk 116610LV, which skyrocketed earlier this year. On the one hand, there is industry rumor that the Submariner series is about to be changed, and 116610LV in the series is a special watch that has been given the brand’s green color, making it a “special version,” so some people believe that such a design will disappear from the Rolex catalogue one day. Furthermore, given the date of the upcoming summer, it is expected that market demand for diving watches would steadily expand. The turnover rate of diving watches is always quite high, especially in May and June each year, which may be influenced by the overall market trends.
You may try to discover an appropriate selling opportunity for this watch, or you could wait for its price to skyrocket in the future. The 116610LV is nearly faultless among Rolex diving watches, with virtually no flaws.
No. 11: Rolex Yacht-Master Series 116622
Increase: 129.6%If it’s a Rolex sports watch, it’ll be constructed of precious metals like pure gold or platinum, and the Yacht-Master series is a highly opulent watch composed of platinum and Oystersteel. The following model, the 116622, features a platinum bezel and dial (if the dial is blue, the bezel is solely platinum). However, it is possible that the lack of market interest is due to the design’s overly “luxury” presentation. In general, the primary models whose costs have risen among Rolex watches are pure steel models. Yacht-Master has its own fans for each style because to its wide range of dials, and its popularity is dispersed. This might be the case why the price of the series is difficult to rise.
Yacht-Master, on the other hand, not only has a beautiful and noble look, but also a sporting feeling. Fashionistas enthusiastically applaud features such as the rotating bezel, Oyster case, and Oyster strap. Although it was recently introduced in 2016, the version with the “dark rhodium dial” (dark rhodium) is already the most popular variant of the Yacht-Master 116622. Rolex’s original platinum material has a specialization, with an attractive black dial and light blue pointer decoration. Of course, whether it’s a blue dial or a silver dial, both are quite popular, and market circumstances are improving at the same time.
Furthermore, in 2019, all Yacht-Master models, including 116622, were totally replaced with new movements, and the alterations were finished. As a result, 116622 has now halted manufacturing, despite the fact that its popularity or price is rising with time, and it can be claimed that it has ushered in an exceptional selling opportunity.
No. 10: Rolex Explorer II Series 216570
Increase: 130.0%Finally, the top 10 watches with the most growth have been revealed! First and foremost, Explorer II 216570 is ranked tenth! Explorer II is a better-equipped variant of Explorer I. We just debuted the 16570, which is rated 13th. It is the 216570 model’s preceding generation. The current model, 216570, was introduced in 2011. The casing has grown to 42mm in size, making it the biggest in the series. Furthermore, the 24-hour hand in the middle of the 216570 dial is painted in the same orange hue as the original model, and it is powered by Rolex’s newly built Cal.3187 automatic movement. The mechanism guarantees that this watch is anti-vibration and anti-magnetic, which considerably improves the overall performance of this series.
Around 2019, market demand for Explorer II 216570 began to rise. As seen by its popularity, it is clearly a promising stock with appealing market values. It’s only that the 216570 is plainly the less expensive of the Rolex sports watches. “How is it possible for the market price to rise to this level?” This phenomena may be difficult to comprehend for some individuals.
The two phenomena of “series change” and “stop production” should be stressed once again. The Cal.3187 automatic movement described earlier is employed not only in the current Explorer II models, but also in 116710 of the GMT-Master II series. Furthermore, Rolex has replaced a new movement in the GMT-Master II, leading to rumors of an Explorer II alteration. Furthermore, the Explorer II’s metal bezel is one of the few unique designs among Rolex’s sports watches, which may be one of the key reasons for the high price.
The release date of Rolex’s 2020 new watch has been postponed indefinitely due to the impact of the new coronavirus. Perhaps it is due to the concept of “first come, first served.” Many individuals are hopeful about Explorer II 216570’s ability to follow up, which has increased market interest and purchasing demand. Those looking to sell this watch should consider it a once-in-a-lifetime chance. Finally, while both white and black are popular, the value of the white is somewhat higher than that of the black in terms of buying price. This is also for your convenience.
No. 9: Rolex Submariner Series 114060
Speaking about “Rolex watch second-hand ranking,” this is another watch in the Submariner series that will never go out of style. It’s the 114060 model, minus the day and the magnifying glass with the date window! Although the 116610LN and 116610LV models with date windows are presently the market’s major emphasis, the models without date have a longer history because the Submariner series was initially created without a date window. Because there is no additional date window, 114060 always provides people with a more polished design and a more balanced overall view, allowing it to be more extensively utilized in a variety of situations.
114060 is not as expensive as Explorer II 216570 until 2020, and it is far from a representative model of the increasing market. However, this “affordable price” may increase demand. Today, the Daytona, GMT-Master II, and date-type Submariner are all on the rise, and more and more people are turning to less expensive watches. Of course, the traditional style of the 114060 continues to captivate watch enthusiasts who believe that “the model without a calendar is the best!” As a result, its own great popularity plays a significant influence in the market. In this case, the purchasing price of 114060 has continued to rise.
Furthermore, as stated in 116610LN, the Submariner series of watches is fairly sturdy and will not readily deteriorate after years of use, so the complete series of watches can retain a good purchasing and selling in the second-hand market. Even if the market circumstances are not discussed, there is no question that 114060 is a classic watch that “always sells well” for the reasons stated above.
No. 8: Rolex Daytona Series 116500LN
The current model of the Daytona series, 116500LN, is well-liked by the market. This watch’s level of popularity does not need to be repeated. Due to extremely strong market demand, it has resulted in severe shortages, affecting the broader Rolex market. Of course, if we simply consider price increases, its statistics of 132.2% (already quite high) ranks only eighth.
However, when 116500LN was originally announced at Baselworld in 2016, it was truly launched, and inquiries flew like snowflakes, so we can imagine how popular it was at the moment. When popular businesses like Rolex offer new items each year, they will undoubtedly capture the market’s attention. As a result, regardless of the series of watches, it may retain a pretty high price range within a year after its introduction. But the beautiful thing about this Daytona 116500LN is that no matter how many years have gone after its listing, the market has not only not fallen, but has even increased.
The Cerachrom ceramic bezel from 116500LN is used in the Daytona series. The look is pretty appealing. Whether it is the worth of the series itself or the aesthetic qualities, the Daytona market shows no signs of slowing down. By the way, you may have observed that the market in 2020 for many Rolex watches introduced in this list is somewhat lower than in 2019. This Daytona 116500LN is no different.
This is mostly due to changes in the environment produced by the new coronavirus, which have led the Japanese yen to rise and the entire economy to contract, resulting in a drop in the overall market for high-end luxury watches. However, it is precisely in this case that the great value of Daytona may be demonstrated. Daytona is expected to lead the luxury watch industry in the future and return to its prior high level.
Nonetheless, market circumstances have been continually changing. With the global situation remaining unsettled, the future is becoming even more unpredictable. As a result, if you have Daytona 116500LN in hand, it is advised that you do not delay and move quickly if you want to sell it! Finally, the price rise in this piece is based on the information on the white dial. Although the white dial form of this watch is extremely popular in the market, the black dial style is not far behind. Of course, both are still becoming more expensive.
No. 7: Rolex: Submariner Series 14060M
The 14060M, the 6th generation model of the Submariner series, is the 7th model to be presented! The preceding model of the current 114060 watch is the 14060M. Starting in 2018, the Submariner series has been able to stand out in this ranking list every year, proving its degree of popularity and demonstrating that it is a best-selling series. The 14060M was the first non-date model to be fitted with the Cal.3130 automatic movement, which is currently utilized in several modern models. Furthermore, while the 14060M is the same as the present model, it has a 40mm case, but because the crown shoulder and lugs are relatively tiny and the bezel is made of aluminum, the 14060M is filled with more classic. The charming atmosphere of the watch is a desire product with a high topic.
As previously said, whether it is a “old Rolex” or a “classic Rolex,” the market demand for watches that are many years old is now expanding. Such desire stems mostly from people’s “yearning for classical and old objects” and “hope to enjoy not latest designs.” These requirements are met by the 14060M without a calendar. It inherits the Submariner series’ long-standing design model and has numerous specific elements that differ from contemporary trends. This feature has won the hearts of many watch enthusiasts, making it one of the most popular Rolex models.
Furthermore, all versions manufactured after 2007 have passed the Chronometer’s test and have the English wording confirmed by the Chronometer. In the same year, Rolex added inner ring writing to this watch’s inner ring, giving the version made after 2007 a higher market value. Similarly, Submariner’s strong and lasting design is its major benefit in the used market. Most series watches may be used routinely with proper maintenance and care. As a result, if you wish to purchase and sell a Rolex watch, the Submariner series should be your first choice.
No. 6: Rolex Submariner Date Series 16610
Another 5-digit Submariner series timepiece! The date type Submariner 16610 is in its fourth generation. It debuted in 1989 and was phased out in 2010. The manufacturing phase lasted an extended amount of time. It is a watch that has evolved to the current style and bears numerous signs of the modifications in this watch series. Today, when the market is more focused on Rolex 5-digit models, the 16610 has become extremely famous among watch enthusiasts. In fact, even we were surprised by the overwhelming demand for this watch.
Despite its popularity, the 16610 is not a particularly uncommon watch due to its relatively long manufacture period. At least in the past, the market viewed it that way. However, like with many 5-digit models, after manufacture is ceased, the market value tends to climb over time. Because, as time passes, second-hand watches in good shape will become increasingly scarce.
This Submariner 16610 also comes in a number of unique editions. For example, starting 2003, the windproof (mirror glass) is etched with Rolex’s clear tiny crown watermark; there is also the same inner ring variant as the 14060M. The qualities cause watch enthusiasts to approach this watch differently. The 16610 has traditionally represented the “reasonably priced Rolex.” If you purchased it many years ago, you may now be able to sell it for an unexpectedly high and spectacular sum.
No. 5: Rolex GMT-Master II 116710LN
The words “stop production” and “series change” have been used several times in this article. As you are aware, if Rolex watch manufacturing ceases, the market will be hopeful about its potential to become a rare watch, causing the buying price to skyrocket. This article thinks that everyone who already possesses a GMT-Master II watch will benefit from the Rolex’s unique effects. The market price of 116710LN, which is no longer in the Rolex sales book, has altered significantly.
Rolex GMT-Master series watches are primarily developed for pilots. This GMT-Master II series, which can show “second time” and “third time” in addition to local time, was eventually born in 1983 after various adjustments. The 116710LN model, which debuted in 2007, is the series’ second generation. Later, in 2018, Rolex introduced the third generation 126710 equipped with a new movement, which hit the market in 2019. The series change is akin to stating that the prior generation’s 116710L watch would be decommissioned in 2019 at the same time, becoming a discontinued former model.
Among Rolex sports watches, the GMT-Master II offers a fairly unique color combination. There is currently no sign of the black dial with black bezel in the stainless-steel variants. Despite the fact that the manufacturing and sales period of 116710LN is as long as 12 years, the number in the market does not appear to increase much, causing its market to continue to grow. As a result, now is unquestionably the best moment to sell 116710LN. Readers who want to sell it for a high price can take advantage of this chance.
No. 4: Rolex GMT-Master 16700
The 16700 of the GMT-Master series comes in fourth place! It is GMT-Master’s last watch. The GMT-Master II series was introduced by Rolex in 1983, but before that, the GMT-Master, which can show two time zones at the same time, was the mainstay of the Rolex GMT function. Although these two series were marketed on the market concurrently for a time, the GMT-Master series has no new models beyond the 16700 model (listed between 1989 and 1999), which also symbolizes the GMT-Master series and was discontinued with the discontinuance of this watch.
By using the GMT pointer alone, GMT-Master II may select the time zone and time you require (such as home time, etc.). However, because the GMT pointer (24-hour pointer) and the hour pointer are connected in the previous GMT-Master, they can only be modified by rotating the bezel to show the time in the second time zone.
The 16700, on the other hand, can easily modify the date function, making it fairly comfortable to operate. The GMT-Master series holds numerous positions in this list, demonstrating that the series’ general style has improved in recent years. It has recently been a prominent issue, particularly after 2018. Furthermore, because the 5-digit model has been created for a long time, the number of high-quality folks has reduced year after year, which has become one of the primary causes for this watch’s expanding market.
Following that, I will discuss the particular characteristics that are used in the 16700 but are not available in the current model. That’s the “single-side folding buckle” and the “caramel time scale.” The single-sided folding buckle is a style of buckle that was often used in Rolex watches prior to 1995. Tritium bright paint is referenced by the caramel time scale.Rolex’s current luminous paint is the brand’s original Chromalight luminous paint. However, Tritium was employed as a bright element in timepieces created circa 1997. The paint will develop a gorgeous burned golden color over time. The combination of the single-sided folding buckle and the burnt yellow hour hand is highly flavorful, giving the 16700 a vintage vibe. The market initially only possessed the last batch of A serial version of the 16700, but in this condition, even the earlier produced version’s market demand has began to climb. Because to the usage of Tritium illuminating paint, the serial numbers R, L, E, X, and N have increased in value in recent years.
Furthermore, while the GMT-Master 16700 with black bezel has a good market range, the red and blue Pepsi bezel is the most popular in the market, and its price will be greater than the black bezel.
No. 3: Rolex GMT-Master II 116710BLNR
As previously stated, Rolex finished the GMT-Master II overhaul in 2019 and completely replaced it with a new automatic movement. Furthermore, Rolex has usually combined the stainless-steel sports watch with an Oyster strap, but the new 126710BLNR deviates from the norm by employing a Jubilee five-bead bracelet, which reinforces the notion of the “luxury sports watch” series. Rolex’s technological innovation in the Cerachrom ceramic bezel has enabled the company to create ceramic bezels in a variety of hues. Looking back in time, when Rolex debuted the 6th generation GMT-Master II series 116710LN watch in 2007, it did not have the same ceramic bezel with the technique of burning two color combinations on the bezel. As a result, the blue-black bezel 116710BLNR, which born in 2013, is actually a style that was added later. Increase: 143.7%
The top three watches are going to be revealed! The third spot goes to the GMT-Master II 116710BLNR, affectionately known as “Batman” by watch enthusiasts! At the 2019 Baselworld Watch Fair, Rolex unveiled the newest GMT-Master II 126710BLNR. Because it looks so similar to the previous 116710BLNR, it appears to have significantly scattered the extraordinarily high popularity that was originally accumulated at 116710BLNR. However, the “stop production” had a significant influence, causing the market for 116710BLNR to stay strong.
Nonetheless, the cool, serene, and unique blue and black two-color combination was immediately sought after by the market and has become a super-hot selling item that has burst in popularity. GMT-Master II has become such a successful series due completely to the popularity of 116710BLNR. The 116710BLNR, which has a strong buying urge, has a very high market value. Furthermore, the buying price has climbed year after year, reaching a new peak in 2019, proving the market power of this watch. It is crucial to note, however, that the market price of the new 126710BLNR is also growing year after year; please do not misunderstand the selling price timing of 116710BLNR.
No. 2: Rolex Milgauss 116400
Milgauss 116400 ranks No. 2 in the Rolex this price increase list!When you see this, you can’t help but mutter to yourself, “What, the price increase of Milgauss is better than that of Daytona and GMT-Master II!?” Please do not think in this manner. Today’s market demand for the Milgauss series is skyrocketing. In reality, when the average purchase price in 2017 and 2019 is compared, its market has expanded by up to 1.5 times. Furthermore, I’d like to inform all readers that the recently announced No. 3 GMT-Master II 116710BLNR was really more expensive than the Milgauss 116400 last year, but this year, the “increased” price of Milgauss has exceeded the popular 116710BLNR.
Rolex’s Milgauss series is a classic timepiece built for employees in a magnetic environment. Mille is French for 1000, hence it can endure a magnetic field of 1000 Gauss. The new Milgauss model 116400 was introduced in 2007, although only the 116400GV with a green crystal glass remains in the Rolex catalog. Milgauss 116400, which was discontinued in 2015, is still available in black and white, and its market price is growing. The market price of white dial is clearly greater than that of black dial. This is a crucial factor to remember.
Milgauss market may have surged due to rumors of production cessation that surfaced unexpectedly in 2019. However, while Rolex did not make any improvements to the Milgauss series, the reason for the growing interest in this watch stems from its appeal. In other words, Milgauss is a timepiece with a delayed market reaction. However, the market’s interest in it is fast expanding nowadays. If you’re thinking about selling your watch, don’t pass up this opportunity.
No. 1: Rolex GMT-Master II 16710
The No. 1 watch in the latest “Rolex watch purchase price increase list” in 2020…
It is 16710 of the GMT-Master II series!Since 2018, the GMT-Master II series has been the focal point of Rolex watch discussion. This image depicts the GMT-Master II’s distinctive red and blue bezel. It is more often known as the “Pepsi Bezel,” and it is quite popular among watch enthusiasts. The red and blue Pepsi bezel returned to the market in 2018 with a brand-new look, 126710BLRO, driving the market price of the same series of watches in the past. Aside from the red and blue bezel, the 16710 bezels also come in a red and black color scheme known as the Coke bezel, as well as a conventional all-black bezel, all of which have a somewhat high market price.
There are also various GMT-Master II 16710 variations. The evaluation quotation may vary substantially depending on the parameters and specifics. Readers must concentrate. For example, the market value of the exceptionally uncommon Stick Dial made between 2005 and 2007 (the “II” of GMT-Master II altered from the original Roman numerals to two chopsticks without flat feet) is more than twice that of the standard version.
There is also a variant with a production year before to 2005 and a bezel with a “serif font (decorative details at the beginning and end of the bezel digital strokes)”, both of which are extremely unusual. Furthermore, the latter version of the 16710 made in 2007 appears to be on the verge of transitioning to the new 116710 version and is equipped with the Cal.3186 movement (rather than the 3185 movement). Its popularity has grown due to performance improvements. The GMT-Master II 16710 in your hands might be the previously described extremely uncommon edition.
