Rolex: Buy a New or Used?

This week, Robert-Jan Borer, expressed his personal opinion on the choice of Rolexwatches. Like it or not, we cannot dispense with the information that the models of the brand called more attention of consumers than any other brand of watch. Really, a reputable company when considering the quality of the watches produced, always on a large scale, with reasonably low prices.

Broer admits that his opinion will change with some frequency. It assumes you already have written materials that said “why not collect vintage Rolexes”, but now he says he paid off his tongue, with only Rolexes vintages in their collection. However, he is still pretty stubborn about older models of the brand. In the next paragraphs, you will discover the taste of Broer on older models.

Like most other brands of vintage watches, Rolex from the 1960 and 1970 has an aura of adventure. Submitted by wear boxes and bracelets show that the watch had a hard life, and that the model must have witnessed incredible things, says Broer. The grace of these models is that, with so many circulating on the market, you can find one with the exact configuration that you want. He cites that don’t particularly like models with Luminescent indicators of tritium that stayed with a mustard-yellow and prefers the whiter. It also says don’t like the models with dials in style “spider’s Web” (with craquelada) and prefer the matte dials, with round and large hour markers. Broer full yet: “I would prefer to have a watch that had a decent maintenance over the decades than a piece with Crown, seals and original crystal. But I know that there are dozens of people who prefer just the opposite. ”

He learned that a lot of purchasing and collecting Rolexes has to do with aesthetics. There is great interest back to the mechanism, because people usually trust that he’s going to be good (it’s a Rolex after all). Many collectors are concerned about a display of good appearance, or that the pointers are equal than to worry about the movement. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but these movements are fairly easy to maintain, but Broer is keen to that the movement is in perfect working order.

But on the other side of the story, there is a lot of fraud in the world of vintage Rolexes. As well as all transactions involving high amounts, there’s always those people who want to take advantage over others who want to buy a well. There are traders who claim to have millionaires business involving Rolex models and who claims to be able to provide the model you need or is sued at that particular time. Be very careful with this kind of seller. Broer recommends looking for people who trade models as a hobby or passion to go into stores with dozens of vintage models that are marked as unique and carry exorbitant price tags.

By the way, exclusivity is a very important subject. Few Rolex models are unique in numerically, especially vintage models. Rolex has always been a plant with high production capacity. Collectors made them unique on the specific need of aging or specific training on the dial. In fact, if you have unlimited resources, you can buy a Rolex to be (with the exception, of course, of prototypes or models with specific purpose professional). You want a Daytona Paul Newman? Without problems. Show me the money. The only thing that makes a unique Rolex is the price tag, says Broer. There are many other watches, other brands, which are much more difficult to achieve. And, certainly, more technically interesting. But let’s face it: the demand for vintage Rolexes is unparalleled.

So, in the end, if you want to purchase a vintage model, make sure you know how much you have to spend and what you want. If you, as you won’t mind so much Broer on writing position on the dial, as yellow the patina will be or how faded the bevel will be, you’ll be pretty safe. Anyway, make sure you know the seller, who knows and trusts to fulfill your purchase. It is virtually impossible to know everything about vintage Rolex models, but you must be comfortable with the clock that is offered to you. If you assert that it’s authenticity, you must trust him. Some sellers even guarantee your money back if something bad happens after your purchase. But be sure to check around the internet, with some users and lovers collection watches, about the reliability of the person who offers the model. Also think logically when you’re looking for a vintage Rolex in the market. Don’t lose your head, if you don’t feel comfortable, do not pull the trigger.
