First Things First: All About Rolex Watches
Rolex watches are renowned as high-precision, prestigious timepieces. The Classic collection includes model styles from understated to luxurious. The Professional Collection offers timepieces that function as high-performance tools for specialized fields such as racing, navigation, aviation, diving, and exploring.
The Classic Collection
A classic, timeless watch with hour markers or Roman numerals, the Datejust has four versions in a combination of Oystersteel and 18 ct white gold.
This watch, designed especially for travelers, shows the time in two time zones and includes an ingenious calendar. A luminescent coating on the hands and hour markers makes it easier to read the time in low-light conditions.
A prestigious watch that represents refinement and comfort, it is designed with hour markers available in precious stones. A bespoke day display is available in a range of languages.
This is an elegant women’s watch created in 1945 and available in Oystersteel in 18 ct yellow or Everose gold. A Lady-Datejust Rolesor version combines Oystersteel and 18 ct gold. Rolex offers women many face variations of this classic ladies’ timepiece.
The Oyster Perpetual
The watches in this series are “direct descendants of the original Oyster.” They bear all the classic features for which the Rolex Oyster is renowned, with new and updated configurations.
This Pearlmaster is both a watch and a piece of fine jewelry. Fashioned in 18 ct gold and covered with diamonds, it is a remarkable watch to own and wear.
Inspired by Italian Renaissance artist Benvenuto Cellini, this Rolex is both noble and luxurious. Multiple models allow for the addition of a moon phase or guilloche dial feature.
The Professional Collection
This watch is available in Oystersteel—a superalloy in the 904L steel family and usually reserved for aerospace and chemical industry usage. It is robust in even the harshest environments. The Explorer II has an additional 24-hour arrow hand that shows time in a 24-hour format–helpful in places where daytime and nighttime are indistinguishable.
Tagged, “The Watch That Conquered the Deep.” The Sea-Dweller brand included two Rolex divers’ watches engineered to withstand extreme underwater pressures. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is waterproof to 1220 metres; the Rolex Deepsea is waterproof to 3,900 metres. Oystersteel.
The Rolex Submariner, waterproof to 300 metres, features a Chromalight display where hands and hour markers glow in the dark. The new generation models contain proprietary self-winding mechanical movements with ultra-precise Parachrom hairsprings.
A timepiece launched in 1955 whose original purpose was to aid in navigation for professional globe-trotters, the GMT-Master II is available in Oystersteel, white gold, and Everose gold.
Tagged, “The Watch of the Open Seas.” A rugged watch designed for sailors, yachtspersons, competitors, and ocean explorers. It is built of Oystersteel with a 950-platinum bezel in the Rolesium version.
Obviously, this is Rolex’s ultimate racing watch. An iconic timepiece enjoying 50 years of performance history, it is available in Oyster with white gold, yellow gold, or Everose gold.
An anti-magnetic timepiece especially for engineers and scientists, this watch can withstand magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. Oystersteel.
This is Rolex’s timepiece developed exclusively for aviators. The watch features a black dial with contrasting oversized 3, 6, and 9 numerals. “Air-King” on the face retains its 1950s font style.
How Much is Your Rolex Worth?
New Rolex watches vary greatly in price from under $10,000 to $75,000, with the average new price falling in the $7,000-$12,000 range. Factors that impact value include:
- Special features
- Special or Collectible editions
- Professional designations
- Advanced engineering options
Rolex watches typically hold their value or increase in value. This is because of their long-standing reputation for quality and superior engineering, proven longevity, perpetual high demand, and annual pricing increases. Discounted dealer prices are rare but sometimes occur on later models, ladies models, and the two-tone Datejust.
Vintage editions or pre-owned collectibles such as the Rolex Submariner Hulk and Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi can see price increases of 100-200%. Even pre-owned non-collectibles can often cost more than new Rolexes. This is because Rolex watches are always in demand, and buyers will pay inflated amounts to get the exact timepiece they want.
The highest price a Rolex ever captured was $17.8 million on auction for the Paul Newman Daytona.

Time for a new watch? Time to sell your old one!
For thousands of years, we’ve had a fascination with telling the time. From ancient calendars to our smartphones our lives are run like clockwork around this eternal ticker. This seemingly simple piece of equipment has become somewhat of an art form over the past few centuries with some people now willing to pay tens of thousands of pounds for these time tellers. From Rolex to swatch designers have created unique timepieces that seem to have come a long way from the obelisks constructed in ancient Egypt around 3500BC to the sterling silver oyster bracelets that bombard our Instagram every day. The watch is essentially the sports car you wear on your wrist putting you in an elite club of successful, stylish, and filthy rich people that get into bars you wouldn’t even dream of passing. They are a souvenir of sophistication and a masterpiece of modern technology and traditional craftsmanship.
Watches are far more than a timepiece to many of us while being an ever-growing industry with new models coming out constantly. They fill our glossy magazines with the latest style of strap and technological features and tempt us at airports and shopping centers with these artful accessories. With the most expensive watch being sold at an inconceivable $11.5 million we are willing to splash the cash for something that rates us highly in the world of success without drawing criticism for its overstatement. But it isn’t always about the price with Obama sporting a humble £260 watch during his presidency proving you can be the most powerful man on Earth without having 33 different functions on your wrist.
While in this day and age there is hardly any need for watches with our smartphones at our fingertips but we still love to accessorize in something that says we are sensible yet savvy, could own a yacht or a ford fiesta and we definitely have our lies as together as they can be. But what do you do when the time has come for an update on your most prized possession. Instead of leaving your sterling silver to collect dust why not sell it on? You could make a decent bit of cash that can go towards your new watch and see your precious little timepiece go to someone that will love it just the same. Because no one wants to see their right-hand man (or left depending on where you wear it) to die of loneliness and neglect in the back of a wardrobe somewhere, forgotten till the end of time itself.
A great way to do this is through The boutique Manchester who takes any high-quality watches even if they are not in the best condition as long as they can be refurbished and resold. They offer fair prices and are one of the only buyers that will take watches in need of a bit of repair before selling them on. So if you’re browsing the catalog for a new wrist statement and you need a super-easy way to trade yours in to afford the new addition then simply send a couple of pictures of your watch with a brief description to 07562 359459 over WhatsApp. They should get back to you within 2 days so there’s no hanging around and you can order your new one in no time. Just keep in mind that your watch does need to have a resale value of at least £500 but they will consider most designer and high-end watches.
A watch that has been on our wrists in our shops and in our dreams for over a century is the indulgently designed Rolex. With its master craftsmanship and iconic past, this is a watch that really will stand the test of time. Rolex’s value increases over time and with their age come appreciation and so are the perfect watch if you’re looking to sell. The boutique Manchester will give you a decent price for your Rolex and hand it over to someone who will show it the care it deserves. With its unrivaled mastery and innovative technology, the high demand for such a beautiful watch never wavers making it easy to sell. So, whether it was handed down from a grandfather or was a well-thought-out purchase on a holiday to Geneva The boutique Manchester will be happy to buy your Rolex without hesitation and help to sell it on while giving you a nice cash injection. It really is a win-win for you, your pocket, and your Rolex.
While Rolex has a huge range of watches to choose from some of the greatest names in history have been known to wear these elegant accessories including Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, and even the Dalai lama. With some of the most famous Rolex’s being The Submariner, The Datejust, The Daytona, and The Yachtmaster these watches really do bridge a gap between the person we want to be and the person we are. With their incomparable air of grace and finesse, they have decorated everyone from the leaders of the free world to sportsmen to big business tycoons and allow us a slice of a life that we may not have but are able to flash on our wrists in a meeting.
So, while watches are a big investment with some costing more than your car, there is no doubt we are all chocoholics at heart. There is something we have found irresistible about these time tellers for millennia and our desire for decadent designs and tasteful technology is not set to dwindle any time soon. But while we can’t all get a mortgage to pay for our next watch you can easily sell your old one on to make space in your bank account for the new one. The Boutique Manchester ensures it is simple, quick, and fair making your next purchase not as out of reach as you thought. Not only are you not letting your precious watch just collect dust but you’re getting a decent price and a good excuse for a spending spree. So what are you waiting for? If you’ve already decided your style has got to be the one and only Dalai Lama or you’re going for a more Cuban revolutionist look there’s a new watch out there waiting for you so trade your old one in now because life’s too short to not have a watch called The Yachtmaster on your wrist.
