I sold an Air-King to help pay for my house

When I was in my twenties, a senior colleague at work told me that "Rolexes are great!”, so when I got my bonus I went and purchased an Air-King. I really liked the simple design of the Air-King, but now that I am buying my own house, I decided to sell the watch to help with the down payment because I heard that Rolexes could be sold for a lot of money. I had lost the Air-King’s box and guarantee card, and I pretty much never serviced it, but it still turned out to be worth more than I expected. I was impressed by how much money a Rolex could fetch. The store staff gave me a lot of trivia about the Air-King as well as a detailed explanation on the appraisal value, which really made me feel comfortable about the entire process.

I sold a Rolex Air-King

I sold a Rolex Air-King. I had worn it for a long time, but I gradually started to use it less and less, and for the past several years it was just being kept in its box. I had no intention of selling something so memorable to me, but when I saw the buyback price of a Rolex Air-King on a flyer, I decided to get it appraised just to find out how much it was worth. Even though I told them that I only wanted an appraisal, I was glad that they were very willing to accept my request and conducted the assessment with great care. The price they offered me for the Rolex Air-King was more than I had imagined, and so I ended up agreeing to sell it.

I was able to sell my Air-King at a high price

I searched the Internet for a place to sell my Air-King and found Jewel Cafe, which was the closest store to my house. I had thrown away the box, so I was worried about whether they would accept a watch without any accessories. But this didn’t seem to be a problem and I was shocked because the price was higher than I had expected. I was even served drinks and snacks while the Air-King was being appraised, so I was able to relax as I waited without getting bored. The buyback price was good, of course, but the very knowledgeable staff and the way they courteously attended to me was also the reason why I decided to sell at Jewel Cafe.

I went to get my Rolex Air-King appraised!

I had always wanted to buy and wear a Rolex at least once, so I chose the Air-King because it was simple and easy to wear. I wore it for a long time before it broke down. Then I received a campaign postcard from Jewel Cafe which said that they would accept broken Rolexes. Wondering how much a used and broken Air-King was worth, I brought it in for an appraisal. Depending on the sum, I was thinking of buying a new watch instead of repairing my current one. I had been to the store multiple times, but I was absolutely refreshed by the pleasant atmosphere, the brightly lit store, and the female staff who were so easy to talk to! They kindly listened to me talk about all sorts of things while I waited. They carefully explained about my Air-King in a way that was easy to understand, and the offer price was also agreeable, so I decided not to repair it but to sell it and get a new one instead. Thank you very much. I will come again if the opportunity arises.

I sold my Rolex Air-King!

I had purchased a Rolex Air-King when I was young, and for several decades it was just stored away somewhere. While reorganizing my house I thought it was a good time to let go of it, so I searched the Internet for “Rolex buyback” and “Air-King buyback”. Jewel Cafe had very good reviews, so I decided to take my watch there. I was very well attended to, and was offered drinks and magazines so I did not get bored while waiting for the appraisal to be over. They explained everything to me in detail, and I found the price very agreeable so I decided to sell the watch. Even though my Rolex Air-King had never been serviced, they offered me a good price to my satisfaction. I will definitely use their service again.

It was a Rolex Air-King that I had bought 20 years ago…

This was the first time I went to Jewel Cafe for an appraisal. My Air-King was the oldest model out of all the current Rolex watches. When I first entered society, I wanted to buy a nice watch at least once. But after I bought it, I was so scared of scratching it that I didn’t really wear it and just stored it away. A large ad in a newspaper offering 20,000yen cash rebate on Rolexes caught my eye. I knew from the TV and online that the market price of Rolexes was going up, plus I was curious about the cash rebate, so I contacted the store. They invited me to come whenever I had the time, so I went to the store at a later date and to my relief, I was greeted cheerfully by the staff. Since my watch was an old model and never serviced, I was prepared for the fact that it would not be worth all that much. Even so, they conducted a detailed appraisal and when I told them about the ad in the newspaper, they offered me the cash rebate as well. I am glad that I got an appraisal for the Rolex Air-King which I didn’t really use and that I managed to sell it for a good price!

I felt good selling the Air-King which had been handed down to me from my grandfather's generation!

I had an Air-King that was handed down to me from my grandfather's generation, but it became so worn out that the strap was about to break, so I decided to part with it after thinking about getting a new watch. I felt a deep sense of regret because I had a lot of memories with the watch, but Jewel Cafe listened to my story even more kindly than before, and so I was able to sell it with peace of mind. They even served me drinks just like at a real cafe so that I could relax while waiting for the appraisal to be over. I look forward to coming again in the future.

I sold the Air King that was given to me by my father

I sold the Air-King that was given to me by my father. While out shopping on my off day, I found out about Jewel Cafe, which was willing to buy back Air-Kings. Thinking that it was about time for me to buy a new watch, I asked for an appraisal. I got a good impression from the way the staff explained the buyback process so kindly and carefully, and so I felt comfortable selling my Air-King. I am very glad that I was able to get a better price than I had expected, since I had kept up with the servicing and retained all the accessories. Thank you so much!

Ways to sell Rolex Air-King
at a higher price

How to Sell Rolex Air-King at a High Price〈 1 〉

Sell your Rolex as soon as possible if you have decided that you won’t be using it

The price of a Rolex varies depending on the model, but it can also fluctuate depending on the production year and reference number. For example, popular models with a relatively newer year and reference number can fetch a higher market price. Also, since demand tends to vary depending on the model, we recommend that you sell your Rolex as soon as you have decided that you will not be using it.

How to Sell Rolex Air-King at a High Price〈 2 〉

Sell your Rolex with its warranty card and accessories for a higher price

Be sure to keep the warranty card, box, spare parts, and instruction manual that came with your Rolex when you purchased it. Without the warranty card, you may not be able to receive an authorized service or repair. Therefore, the purchase price of a Rolex will vary greatly depending on whether it has a warranty card. In addition, if the watch does not come with spare links, this limits its range of adjustable sizes, which may result in a lower price. That’s why it is advisable to keep all accessories carefully without throwing them away.

Remove the dirt from your Rolex and keep it clean to sell it at a higher price

The key to increasing the appraisal value of a Rolex is to clean it as much as possible beforehand. Even a simple cleaning at home, such as wiping the glass surface or removing dirt from the crevices of the strap, can impact the appraisal value. If your Rolex has not been serviced for a long time, it is a good idea to just bring it in as is. Of course, a watch that has been serviced will fetch a higher price, but Rolexes can be expensive to repair and it may take many months. Considering the downsides, it is recommended to bring in the watch without getting it serviced.

Rolex Air-King's trivia
of the week

This Week’s Trivia on Air-King Purchase

The history of Rolex begins in London. It is said that there are currently some 600 Swiss watchmaking companies, many of which were established more than 100 years ago. However, only a handful of these have maintained operations uninterrupted to the present day. One such company is Rolex, whose founder Hans Wilsdorf was born in Bavaria, Germany in 1881. At the tender age of 12, he lost both his parents, dropped out of school, and began working for Cuno Korten, a Swiss watchmaker in La Chaux-de-Fonds. There, he was tasked with the export of English watches, which allowed him to develop his business acumen from a young age. In 1903, he moved to London at the age of 22, and two years later in 1905, he founded Wilsdorf & Davis, the predecessor of Rolex.

Five years later, in search of "a creative and easily-pronounceable word", he renamed the company to the Rolex brand which we all know today. In 1910, he entered into a partnership involving watch movements with Aegler, a Swiss company skilled in the manufacture of precision instruments, and obtained the highest level of certification from the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). In 1914, Rolex was awarded the highest recognition from the Kew Observatory. Hans Wilsdorf's next goal was to develop a sturdy case capable of protecting the watch’s movement from dust and moisture, so in 1926, in cooperation with Oyster Watch Co., he developed and patented a case made of hollowed-out metal and a screw-in crown.

Thus the Rolex Oyster was born, Rolex’s trademark mechanism that remains to this day. A certain legendary event made the Rolex Oyster famous across the world: in 1927, a stenographer from London by the name of Mercedes Gleitze achieved the amazing feat of swimming across the Strait of Dover in 15 hours and 15 minutes, and she did so while wearing a Rolex Oyster on her wrist. The fact that the Rolex was able to withstand such extreme conditions proved the incredible water resistance of the Oyster case, which in turn prompted the accelerated development of waterproof watches among other manufacturers. The success of the Rolex Oyster made a name for Rolex worldwide for its watchmaking technology, and the company next turned its attention towards developing a self-winding watch.

In 1931, Rolex produced the very first wristwatch to feature a 360-degree full-rotation self-winding mechanism, thereby overcoming the biggest issue with automatic winding up to that point, which was the poor efficiency of the winding mechanism. This technology dramatically improved the winding efficiency, further augmenting Rolex's innovative capabilities. The integration of this mechanism of perpetual movement into the prized Rolex Oyster produced the Oyster Perpetual, fondly nicknamed "the Bubbleback" in the antique market today because the rotor for winding the mainspring is positioned over the movement, causing the watch to be unusually thick as the back was rounded like a bubble to accommodate the rotor.

In 1945, another revolutionary invention was added to the Oyster Perpetual: the Datejust. As the name suggests, the date display automatically rolls forward each day at midnight, which was a groundbreaking mechanism at the time. These three major inventions — the Oyster case of 1926, the Perpetual mechanism of 1931, and the Datejust mechanism of 1945 — mark the perfection of Rolex's practical watch design.
