Antique Rolex

Because I bought it 30 years ago so I don’t remember how much I bought it with, I went-in to the store not even knowing whether Submariner’s price was rising or not. Miraculously, I had all of the so-called accessories, so I told the staff about them and asked for an appraisal. I didn’t really have high expectation because my Rolex was an antique one, but the staff went through a lot of details and gave me a price that made me decided to sell it. We also had great time talking about the time I got my Submariner. I was quite uncertain about my antique Rolex at first, but the staff was really kind and helpful, so I am thinking about bringing in my other unwanted items as well. Thank you very much.

I sold my antique DateJust

I was cleaning out my grandmother’s house and found an antique DateJust that she herself couldn’t remember when she bought it. I know about Jewel Café when I was searching on internet for purchase store, so I decided to bring it in. There were no accessories or anything, but the staff was very knowledgeable and told me in detail which model of DateJust is among the antique Rolex and how much the market price was. To be honest, I was unsure at first about selling it, but the staff was really friendly, and there were also a lot of benefits so I made my mind to sell it. Will definitely recommend them to my friend, thank you very much.

I brought in my antique Daytona

My friend introduced to me about Jewel Café, so I brought my item in for them to purchase. Their store was pretty stylish and the atmosphere was very comfortable. I also got to talk about antique Rolex and other brands as well because the staff who did the appraisal for me was very knowledgeable in this field. Because there isn’t many antique Daytona being brought in, so the staff explained with great detail to me about the market value of antique Rolex, we had a great time talking about it. They also offered a satisfactory price to me after the explanation so I sold it without any worry. I will use their service again when I have other unneeded items. Thank you for your service.

Sold my antique Cellini passed down for generations

I sold my antique Cellini passing down since the generation of my grandfather. I found out that it’s considered an antique model of Rolex, and was looking for purchase store and recycle shop that would buy it, but couldn’t find any place that would do so. That’s when I saw the review about Jewel Café where they would accept items that others won’t. I gave them a call and brought in my antique Cellini, they assessed it thoroughly even though it was in poor condition, and offered me a good price which made me decided to sell it on the spot. Thanks a lot!

I sold my unused antique GMT Master

I found their shop near my house through internet so I went to take a look. Their atmosphere was quite different to other recycle shop where even people like me who seldom use this kind of service can enter casually. I brought in my antique Rolex for appraisal, the staff was easy to talk to and explained in detail to me about the procedure of the appraisal with the time needed which made me feel at ease. They also offered a great price for it. Because my GMT Master had not been through any maintenance, so it was not in a good condition, but I was still able to sell it regardless, thank you for buying it.

They bought my antique Rolex Explorer at price higher than other shop

I was told that Explorer is the model among antique Rolex that isn’t priced very well by many stores, so when I asked by friend about any good store he knows, he introduced me to Jewel Café. While many places won’t offer a good price without boxes and other attachments, but the staff in Jewel Café examined it in detail and offered me a price higher than anywhere else, so I decided to sell it here. We also talked about the timing of selling antique Rolex, I am really glad to be able to sell my watches to those who are knowledgeable in this field. I will visit again with my other unused Rolex.

I sold my memorable antique Milgauss

I let go of my antique Milgauss I received from my father as celebration of my first job. I looked up Rolex Milgauss on the Internet recently and found that it is very popular, and mine was in a good condition because It’s hardly been used. I visited Jewel Cafe in my neighborhood because I was told that there was a possibility that my Rolex could be valuable as an antique. Honestly, I didn’t have a price in mind, but the staff explained to me thoroughly about antique Milgauss and told me it’s a good time to sell it, so I made up my mind to sell it on the spot. I was surprised I was able to cash-in on the spot and didn't expect it to sell for such a high price! Will go again when I have anything else to sell.

Sold my antique Air-King

I went to sold the antique Air-King that was a gift to my husband. It had been using it for over 10 years, so the screw part broke and the hands started to lag, so it wasn’t used and was put away. I didn’t think about selling it at first, but when I checked on the overhaul fee, it was so expensive that I gave up. After discussing with my husband, I thought I would at least do an evaluation to see how much an antique Rolex can worth. Other stores were either not accepting it because it was broken, or quoted it very cheap. But when I went to Jewel Café, they examined it and offered with a price exceeding my expectation, so I decided to sell it to them. I was most comfortable with their detailed explanation and the price they offered, and was able to sell it without any worry.

Ways to sell Rolex Antique
at a higher price

How to Sell Rolex Antique 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 Antique 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.

About the purchase of Rolex Antique watches

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.
