Ways to sell Broken Rolex
at a higher price

How to Sell Broken Rolex 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 Broken Rolex 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.

How to Sell Broken Rolex at a High Price〈 3 〉

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.

My grandfather's Rolex GMT-Master turned into a fortune!

The watch belonged to my grandfather who passed away last year. No one else in the family is a watch-lover and so we did not know much about the Rolex he left behind. I was worried so I called up the store beforehand and was told to bring it in for an appraisal as soon as possible since it was free of charge. So I dropped it off while out shopping with my family, not expecting much. When I returned, I could not believe the high price I was offered for the GMT-Master watch. The staff was very kind and explained everything to me in detail. I had been thinking of throwing the watch away, but it turned out to be a fortune. Thank you so much!

I was able to sell my Rolex Explorer at a higher price compared to other stores

I bought a second-hand Explorer, but after that I wanted to replace it because it just didn't feel right when I wore it. I went round to a few stores but was not able to get the price I wanted, so I honestly gave up. Then when I was out shopping, a female staff handed me a tissue pack with “Rolex cashback” printed on it. So I brought my watch to the store in doubt, but they offered me cashback at a better price than any other store. Thanks to you, I have been able to get a new watch. Thank you so much!

I sold a Rolex Oyster Perpetual that I got from my father

I had an Oyster Perpetual that I got from my father years ago. I kept it as a memento after he passed away, but it did not have any accessories and I had no idea if it was genuine. While shopping I saw an ad about a "Free Appraisal", so I came back another day and asked the staff to look at it. He even offered me some tea while I waited. As it turned out, the Oyster Perpetual fetched a surprisingly good price even without any accessories. I think my father would be pleased too. Thank you so much!

I sold a Rolex Submariner

I asked for a quote for the Rolex Submariner I purchased about 30 years ago. The fact that I got the highest price out of the 2 or 3 places I visited was the deciding factor for me. The atmosphere was better than the other stores and the staff was very cheerful. We even reminisced about the time I bought the Submariner. It wasn’t just the price, but also the pleasant customer service that made me feel really good about the sale. Thank you so much!

I sold a 20-year-old Rolex Day-Date

I wanted to sell my Day-Date that I had bought the first year I started working, so I looked it up on the Internet. I had bought it second-hand and it wasn’t in the best condition, so I was worried that I would not be able to sell it. But when I called Jewel Cafe to inquire, they told me that they accepted even old Day-Dates, and so I quickly brought it to the store. I am very satisfied because I was able to sell my Day-Date for a higher price than I had expected.

I was able to sell my broken Rolex Datejust for more than I expected

When my Rolex Datejust broke down several years ago, I found that it cost a lot to have it repaired, so I just left it as it was. I happened to pass by a billboard ad that said they would buy broken Rolexes, so I decided to give it a shot. I have been to similar stores before, but Jewel Cafe had a very nice atmosphere, and the staff were friendly as they quickly appraised my broken Datejust. I was worried that I would have to pay for repairs, but instead I received an immensely satisfactory sum of money for it. Since they also accept local watches, I will take this opportunity to sell all my unused watches.

I let go of my Rolex Daytona after receiving a satisfactory explanation

I purchased a Daytona several years ago mostly as an investment. I did not wear it even once and just kept it at home. Recently, I visited Jewel Cafe because I thought I might be able to sell it for more than the purchase price. The staff examined the watch carefully so as not to scratch it, and explained to me in detail about its resale value. That’s why I decided to go with this store even though it was the first one I visited. I was especially happy when the staff praised the pristine condition of my Daytona. I will visit the store again if I have occasion to in the future.

I sold my Rolex Milgauss after receiving a satisfactory explanation

The Milgauss was given to me as a gift when I first started working. I visited a nearby Jewel Cafe because I heard that Rolexes could appreciate in value. I honestly did not know the purchase price, but the staff explained to me in detail about the Milgauss and I was convinced that now was the time to sell it, so I turned it over that day itself. To be honest, my hands were shaking as I received all that instant cash. I plan to visit this store regularly as it seems that they also buy other items.

How to get more for your broken Rolex purchase

Ways to make expensive purchase Results

Sell Rolexes you decide you don't want to use as soon as possible.

The price of a Rolex tends to vary depending on the model, but it also tends to go up and down depending on the year and reference number. For example, if the year and reference number are relatively new, the watch may be more popular in the market and fetch a higher price. Also, demand tends to change depending on the model, so we recommend that you sell your Rolex as soon as possible if you decide that you will no longer use it.

Rolex guarantee card, sold at a higher price with accessories.

Be sure to keep the guarantee card, box, extra frames, and manual that came with your Rolex when you purchased it. If the guarantee card is not included, you may not be able to receive an authorized overhaul or repair. Therefore, the purchase price will vary greatly depending on whether or not the Rolex guarantee card is included. In addition, if the watch does not come with extra frames, the usable size is limited and the price may be lower. It is advisable to keep all accessories carefully without throwing them away.

Get your dirty Rolex clean, and sell it at a higher price.

The secret to increasing the appraisal value of a Rolex is to clean it as much as possible before the appraisal. Even a simple cleaning at home, such as wiping the glass surface clean or removing dirt from the gap between the belt and the case, can change the appraisal value. If your Rolex has not been overhauled for a long time, it is a good idea to bring it in as is. Of course, a watch that has been overhauled will receive a higher appraisal, but Rolexes can be expensive to repair and may take many more months. Considering the disadvantages, it is recommended to bring in the watch without overhaul.

Broken Rolex's trivia
of the week

Daytona’s appealing diversity born from evolution.

Daytona was born in 1963. After several prototype models, it became popular as a pioneer of racing chronographs. Its movement is hand-wound Cal. 72 series manufactured by Valjoux, which was used in many other chronographs at that time, However, Rolex has changed to a unique method of adjusting the advance or delay of a watch by meantime screw rather than a regulator pin. The first model was equipped with a free-sprung balance, which is still considered an advanced mechanism today. After the minor change version Cal.722-1, Cal.727- the final version of the Cal.72 series, was installed in the second-generation Daytona.

In addition to a high-beat frequency of 6 vibrations per second instead of 5, the watch is also equipped with a Kif-Ultraflex shock absorber. It was a famous model that continued to support the Daytona until 1988, when production of the hand-wound version was discontinued. The appearance of the hand-winding Daytona differs greatly from that of the automatic Daytona, with a choice of stainless-steel bezel or plastic bezel, and it has a unique design and texture that cannot be described simply by the word "retro". Since Japan’s Rolex has already stopped overhauls service for hand-wind model, there are concerns about its maintenance, so it is essential to ensure the after-sales maintenance service to be in place when needed at the time of purchase, Still, the joy of having a hand-wound Daytona still outweigh such concerns! The most popular 3rd generation hand-wound debuted in 1970. With the introduction of screw-in push buttons and the word "OYSTER" on the dial, it boasts the highest specifications as a hand-winding Daytona! Collectors enjoy the diversity result from the differences in various details, it is truly a blissful pleasure for the collectors to own.

In 1988, it changed to Cal.4030 which based on the Zenith made El Primero, and with that Daytona entered the era of self-winding. The new model passed the chronometer standard and major design changes were made, including the addition of metal frames on the dials, while the plastic bezel disappeared along with the introduction of self-winding model. In 2000, the current Daytona was introduced. The Cal. 4130, developed in-house by Rolex, broke new ground in terms of functionality by improving the power reserve, maintainability and durability of the watch. Since then, the watch has undergone a process of refinement in every detail, including the enlargement of the hands and the improvement of the bracelet. After that in 2013, the 50th anniversary model of Daytona was launched with the entire bezel made of ceramic rather than just the surface. With the announcement of stainless-steel model in 2016, the production of metal bezel has finally come to its end. For 53 years since its first generation, the Daytona has always pursued the highest precision as a racing chronograph. To achieve it, they strengthened the exterior and improve its movement as well. The history of Daytona is the evolution of chronograph itself.
