Why Should I Buy a ROLEX?

For the last century, the name ROLEX has garnered respect as the highest quality timepiece manufacturer in the world. Their science lab and in-house foundry guarantee that their materials are flawless.  Every one of their watches is carefully crafted by a combination of the best engineers and most advanced robots and then hand-tested and set before leaving the premises. The entire process takes about a year for each watch.

ROLEX was started by a pair of men that married into the same family in at the turn of the 20th century. Wilsdorf and Davis was founded in 1905, and after ten years of successfully importing Herman Aegler’s Swiss movements into England, they registered the company name “ROLEX” in 1915. The company moved to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919 in order to escape wartime levies and has been operating from there ever since.

For the last 100 years, some of the most influential leaders and high profile celebrities have been wearing ROLEX watches including Martin Luther King Jr., President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Winston Churchill, Steve McQueen, Harrison Ford and Ellen DeGeneres.

New vs. Used ROLEX Timepieces

Whether you’re looking to buy your first ROLEX or your tenth, each purchase must be prefaced with some important considerations. One of the first questions you will have to ask yourself is: “Should I buy a new or used timepiece?” There really is no right answer to this question, as there are advantages and disadvantages of each option, and it really depends on your personal preference. Here are the pros and cons of new and used ROLEX watches:

New

Pros

The pros of purchasing a new ROLEX seem pretty obvious to me. They are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, they’re in perfect condition, and they’re the latest style in the world of haute horlogerie. Buying a new ROLEX is a huge occasion and marks a special time in your life. Plus there is a feeling of ownership and empowerment that many people believe you cannot get from a used watch.

Cons

Some people view the high prices of ROLEX watches as a con of buying new, as you may be able to find a used one for cheaper. Also, there’s no history engrained in a new ROLEX timepiece. No one knows which model from this year is going to be celebrated in twenty years, so some people consider it a roll of the dice.

Used

Pros

There are two main pros when buying a used timepiece, and they present different opportunities for buyers. The first is price. If you’re looking to buy your first ROLEX, a used timepiece may be a good option. You can find many models that are a couple years old for a significantly lower price than the newest models. This is a good way to learn how to maintain a ROLEX without ‘blowing a fortune.’ The second advantage is that this opens you up to the world of vintage ROLEXES. This is a whole new realm of options and is only traversed by the serious collectors.

Cons

The most obvious con of buying a used watch is that there are thousands of replicas and scammers out there trying to pull the wool over buyers’ eyes. However, this is easily avoidable as long as you do proper research and prospecting.

All Time4Luxury watches come with a 100% authenticity guarantee so you don’t need to worry about fakes and scammers. Whether you’re looking for a new or used timepiece, we’ll help you find the perfect watch for your style.
