The Allure of Collecting Vintage Rolex- Watch Sell

Collecting wristwatches is one of those hobbies that starts off innocently enough but can quickly turn into an all consuming passion. You may start out young collecting some Timex‘s, a Casio or two and if your lucky, a Seiko. Then you are off to college and your taste gets a bit more sophisticated. You want something to celebrate your independence, so  you splurge and get a rugged Swiss Military watch.

After two years of reading Baudelaire, Chomsky and Nietzsche you want a watch that reflects your new found maturity and you upgrade to a Hamilton. Time flies by and soon your walking across the stage in your cap and gown  and your graduation gift on your wrist; a brand new Movado. This Movado is your first introduction into the luxury watch market, and now you are hooked.

As you move up the corporate ladder, you may also desire to upgrade your timepiece from Movado to Tag Heur, Tag Heur to Omega, and from Omega to your Pièce de résistance: A Brand New Rolex! After that first Rolex you never look back and you have officially become a Rolex watch collector.

6605’s Movement

Rolex has one of the largest communities of watch collectors in the world, and with its amazing history and tremendous impact on the watch industry, it is easy to understand the strong following. Collectors respect the fact that Rolex has  practically invented the modern day wristwatch, the water resistant case and the self-winding mechanism. Another reason why collectors choose Rolex is the fact that the company controls every step of production of it watches, and keeps meticulous record of every piece, making identifying and collecting Rolex watches much easier.

This ease of identification plays a major role in the collector community as it allows collectors to identify age, model and serial number of every Rolex that they acquire. All these factors combined with Rolex’s brand recognition create an amazing resale value, Rolex watches can be sold quickly and at a very minimal loss. Often times you can purchase a Rolex wear it for years and sell it at only a fraction below its original retail value; this is why many collectors chase after rare vintage models whose value will only increase over the years.

A look Under the Case Back

Raymond Lee Jewelers was luck enough to get a rare vintage Rolex Datejust model 6605. As you can see from this picture, the timepiece is in amazing condition. The dial still retains its satin black finish. Its face is free from any scratches, and all of the mechanics are in excellent condition. One thing to I can’t stop marveling at is the watches movement. This watch was produced around 1954, and the smooth and fluid movement is a work of art.

Rolex introduced this model of Datejust 6605 at the Basel Fair and for the first time. It was the first production featuring the Cyclops magnifying bubble that you now find in all Rolex models. If you are looking for a piece of watch history, look no further than this amazing wristwatch!
