Reason number one
Wearing a Rolex portrays the image of success. How many guys do you see in business meetings and or networking events wearing a Rolex who are successful in the world of business. Most of the people that you see wearing a Rolex are succeeding in life. They're succeeding in business they are succeeding in life they are succeeding in everything. They've probably bought a Rolex to commemorate the fact that they have made a success of something or another. Many people will buy a Rolex to commemorate a big business deal, or a big investment deal, or a major milestone in life. A lot of people use Rolexes to mark certain achievements.
Reason number two
The second reason for investing in a Rolex is being able to pass it down to the next generation. I have a six-year-old daughter, and one of the reasons for me collecting Rolex watches is that when I pass on to the next life, I can pass my Rolexes down to my daughter as a family heirloom. She can then keep them, pass them on to her kids, or she could liquidate them to buy a new house, or a new car, or something like that. You can enjoy the watches throughout the life. Then when you're done with them, you can pass them down to your children. They can pass them down to their children, and it can become a family heirloom, and be passed down through generations. It's a really nice idea, and obviously, your Rolex will increase in value all the way through its life if you buy the right one too.
Reason number three
This is probably the biggest reason people collect Rolexes, and that is to collect Rolex as an investment. You've all seen the guy down in the pub wearing his nice shiny Rolex. That ladies and gentlemen is not just a fashion statement. That is a pretty savvy investment. You buy a Rolex now for say 4, 5, 6 thousand pounds, or better still you can get your hands on one of the rarer models, including a number of the stainless steel models, you are going to see a great return on that investment.
Obviously most people into Rolex watches are aware of the Rolex shortage all around the world. I've travelled far and wide this year all around the world. There are no stainless steel Rolex models anywhere to be seen, from Fifth Avenue in New York to the biggest Rolex boutique in the World in Dubai Mall, you just cannot find Rolex stainless steel sports models. When I visited the biggest Rolex boutique in the world, which is in The Dubai Mall. I was laughed out when I was asking about ceramic stainless steel Daytona and its availability. You can see that if you buy stainless models, keep them for a long time. They're going to increase in value, which becomes a great investment.
Rolex increase the prices on an annual basis. They used to do it every year, but I believe they're doing it less often now. So when Rolex increase their retail price, the watch you currently own will increase on the second-hand market. So keep that box. Keep the papers. Keep them in a safe. Keep your watch in pristine condition, and over the years you should see a steady increase in value.
If you'd like to help keep your watch in pristine condition, why not consider utilizing one of our Vulcan Watch Straps, vulcanized rubber, made in London. Made on aerospace grade tooling in a factory where NASA and Formula 1 teams actually make their rubber car parts, and parts for their space shuttle program. Our straps are made in a clean room environment, absolutely are absolutely top luxury quality. We have spent a lot of time and money developing the best material on the market to bring you the most luxurious rubber watch straps for Rolex. If you wanted to swap out your Oyster bracelet for a nice rubber one, it has the added benefit of helping your watch hold its value because your oyster bracelet can be kept in a safe, and kept nice and pristine. One of the main reasons a Rolex may devalue for what it could be worth, to some extent, is that the oyster bracelet tends to stretch, and scratch, and warp over time. So why not put a luxury rubber one on there, nice and comfortable, great for swimming, great for down at the beach. Get it to match your clothes etc. and save your oyster bracelet in nice pristine condition with your box of papers in the safe, and hey presto, when you come to sell it in a few years' time it will be worth that little bit more and give you some more £ in your pocket.
