I was told it was a high value model and sold it!

I brought in my Rolex Submariner. Maybe due to being located in commercial building, their store was clean and have proper SOP for Covid-19. When I told the staff that I had recently seen on TV that the Submariner was one of the most expensive Rolexes on the market, they let me know about the Submariner's popular models and other items that got strengthened for purchase. They told me that my Submariner also happened to be a high valued model, so they also thoroughly explain to me about the Rolex’s market. They also served me drinks during the waiting, and the price they offered was also very satisfactory, so I’m really glad that I sold it here. Thank you for your service.

I sold my Submariner for more than I paid for!

I heard from a friend that a Submariner I bought 20 years ago could now be sold for a lot of money, so I took it in to check. They handled my treasured Submariner with great care while appraise it promptly. I decided to sell it because of the great service attitude of the female staff. I will definitely utilize their service again with the special offer they gave me. Their friend reference program is also a great deal, so I would definitely introduce them to my friend who need their service as well. Thank you very much.

I sold my Rolex Submariner I received from my brother

Few years ago, my brother told me he was going to switch to smart watch, so he was going to gave his Submariner to me which I longer for. At first, I couldn’t really tell him I wanted it, so when I said he was going to switch to smart watch, I casually asked him what’s his plan for the Submariner, and he told me he wasn’t sure about it and might put it on occasionally, so I gave up. Since the day he suddenly gave it to me, I had been using it since then, but recently my colleagues suggested me to sell my Submariner and use the money to get a new smart watch. To be honest, I also wanted to change to a smartwatch that I could immediately check during internal meetings, so I thought if only I can sell it at a high price, and had my Submariner appraised by Jewel Café which mentioned they have high-price purchase. Because it didn’t attach with any accessories, so I expected a discount in the price, but the staff told me that the Submariner very popular in the market and is being traded at a high price, so they can still price it highly for my case. It seems that they truly live up to their high-price purchase mentioned on internet.

I have my Rolex Submariner appraised!

I bought a Submariner because of its excellent water resistance, but as the years went by, I used it less and less, and for the past few years I have not used it except to display it. Because the maintenance is also costly, so I went to Jewel Café wondering whether I should sell it when I saw their flyers mentioned about strengthening purchase for Submariner. I was quite worrying because its my first time having my Submariner appraised, but the female staff made me felt at ease because she was very friendly and smile delightfully. Because I feel attached to it, so I was wondering while waiting in the store, but she offered a price higher than my expectation and thoroughly explain about the price of my appraised Submariner. I will visit again if needed.

I sold my Submariner!

I bought my Submariner quite a long time ago. I really love Submariner so I bought a few pieces every time a new model released. Recently, I have been wearing it less because it feels heavier than in the past, perhaps because I am a little older, that’s when my daughter told me about Jewel Café. I asked whether I can try the evaluation only for my Submariner, and the staff was happy to help. I wasn’t planned to sold at first, but I changed my mind after seeing their attentive handling of my Submariner and great customer service. I am planning to gradually clean out my Submariner collection, so I will visit Jewel Café again.

I went to sold my Submariner

I have my Submariner I bought 3 years ago appraised. Because its expensive, so I thought of putting it on everyday but its quite heavy and I almost hit it during work, so I stopped wearing it to work. I don’t really get a time off so I seldom wear it, and I had been keeping it without overhauling it, so I thought I would rather cash it in. I was planning to go around for buyers, but they offer me my asking price so I decided to sell it here. I will be getting another Submariner from my father in the near future, and I will use their service again when I do! They are knowledgeable in Submariner so I feel at ease when selling it. Their service and price offered are both satisfactory.

I sold my second-hand Submariner

I sold my second-hand Submariner I bought 30 years ago. I didn’t have the warranty card and box, and the watch also have a deep scratch on it, so I visited the store just because I was curious how cheap the price will turn out to be. When I passed by Jewel Cafe, I remembered a poster that said they would buy broken Rolexes, so I asked if they would buy my broken Submariner. Even though there was a chip on the edge of the windshield, but I still was able to sold it for three times the amount I paid for it because the price of older models has skyrocketed! To be honest, I was very surprised but the appraiser was very professional in their service so I sold it without any worry. If you want to sell your Submariner, I recommend Jewel Café.

I sold my Submariner to fund my oversea trip

Thank you for buying my Submariner at such a high price! I received a Submariner from my father 3 years ago, but because I have no interest in watch so I only put it on display. However, I wanted to travel oversea recently, so I was thinking about selling it to fund my oversea trip. But I didn’t know how to choose a good purchase-specialty store, so I checked out several stores that I found on internet. Jewel Café was the second store that I visited, but they change my impression towards this kind of store with their friendly attitude. Not only about the watch, they were also very attentive during the conversation about myself and their handling was very professional, so I decided to sold my watch to them, I will definitely also introduce them to my friend who need.

Ways to sell Rolex Submariner
at a higher price

How to Sell Rolex Submariner 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 Submariner 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 Submariner's trivia
of the week

About the purchase of Submariner

The history of Rolex started from London. Currently, there are around 600 watchmakers in Switzerland, many of them, as a matter of course, had founded more than 100 years ago. However, there’s only a handful of them who have continued till today without stop. One of them is Rolex. At 1881, the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf born in the land of Bavaria, Germany. After he lost his parent at 12, he got employed by Clio Conten in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland after he graduated. He then got a job exporting watches to England, where he developed his talent as a businessman and gained experience at a young age. After that, in 1903, at the age of 22, he moved to London, where two years later, in 1905, he founded Wilsdorf & Davis, the predecessor to Rolex.

Five years later, in search of "a word that is creative and easy for everyone in the world to say", the brand that we all know and love today, Rolex, was named. The company then entered into a supply contract with Egler, a Swiss company skilled in the manufacture of precision instruments, to supply the movements for watch. In 1910, it was awarded the highest level of the Swiss Official Accuracy Test, and in 1914, it was awarded the highest prize at the Kew Observatory. Hans Wilsdorf's next goal was to develop a robust case to protect the movement from dust and moisture. In 1926, with the help of the Oyster Company, he developed and patented a case made of a hollowed-out block of metal with a screw-in crown. With that, the Oyster Case, the mechanics synonym of Rolex that is inherited until present day, was born.

The capability of this Oyster Case was known by the world through a soon-to-be-legend event. That is, the crossing of the Straits of Dover by Miss Mercedes Gleitz, a stenographer in London, in 1927. She achieved this feat with recorded time of 15 hours 15 minutes, with Rolex Oyster on her wrist. The Rolex that still working fine under this harsh condition proved the water-proving capability of Oyster Case, and this trigger the acceleration of development of water-prove watch throughout the watchmaker industry. With the success of the Oyster Case, Rolex made its technology well-known to the world, but their next step was to create a self-winding mechanism, the development of so-called perpetuals. In 1931, it became the world's first wristwatch to achieve a full 360-degree self-winding mechanism, which successfully overcame the inefficiency of self-winding that had previously been a problem.

It has made a great leap forward in winding efficiency and has further enhanced the competency of Rolex. The Rolex’s famous Oyster Case mounted with this perpetual movements gave birth to the Oyster Perpetual, that is known as the “Bubbleneck” in the antique market today. The rotor used to wind the mainspring is installed so that it covers the movement, making it thicker than before. In order to accommodate this, the back casing swelled like a bubble, hence the name. In 1945, Oyster Perpetual was equipped with a revolutionary new invention that gave birth to another new model, DateJust. As the name implied, the calendar date will switch instantly when the time reach 12 am, it was a groundbreaking mechanic at that time. Rolex's three major inventions, the Oyster case in 1926, the Perpetual mechanism in 1931, and the Datejust mechanism in 1945, marked the completion of Rolex's vision of the practical watch.
