Rolex

Rolex watches are the cream of the vintage wristwatch market and therefore, alongside Patek Philippe, tend to make the highest prices. Over the years a host of famous people have worn them and this adds to the value.

One of the attractions is that many Rolexes were made for specific purposes, such as the Submariner intended for divers, or sport versions, and as such they are tough and practical. They also have plenty of details that vary widely even for the same model, giving particular appeal to collectors.


The Rolex Submariner came with an Explorer 3-6-9 gloss dial and its box and booklet.
