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!

Five Fake Rolex Red Flags: Don’t be Fooled by a Faux

Rolex Datejust II 116334

Don’t be Fooled by a Faux: A Genuine Rolex Watch Reference

With the value of Rolex watches holding strong in the financial field, we have seen a corresponding spiked increase in the manufacturing of Rolex replica watches. Not only has the genuine Rolex timepiece held its financial integrity, the Rolex name itself has become synonymous with style, precision and status. Over a century’s worth of extraordinary efforts and successes in award-winning engineering, technical breakthroughs and research implementation have made the Rolex wristwatch one of the most desired timepieces world-wide.

There are no shortage of reasons as to why the production of Rolex replicas, knock-offs and fakes continue. Many of us have fawned over the incredible creations of genuine Rolex watches, admiring the exquisite design and unique attributes. The impressive nature of a genuine Rolex watch is undeniable. Even now, twenty years later, I can remember studying the Rolex Presidential Watch that my Grandfather was given when he retired from Grumman. As an Engineer, he cherished every groove and mechanism that composed the 18k gold gift.

There was a level of integrity in every aspect of that genuine Rolex watch he wore. Not only was it a symbol of a man who had been a dedicated and honorable engineer for over twenty years, but also representative in its exquisite precision and crafted glory of the high regard that Grumman had for his work. In retrospect, that watch was the embodiment that everything genuine Rolex watches represent. Quality. Integrity. Style.

With a plethora of fake Rolex watches being sold every day, it’s difficult to deny the extreme level of irony. With a genuine Rolex being known for its intelligent design and craftsmanship, what would a Rolex knock-off be representative of? Just a thought…

Now, About Those Five Red Flags…

The best armor we can offer you to ensure a victory, should you find yourself in a battle with these productions of timepiece trickery, are the following 5 signs. Guarded with this knowledge, hopefully we can help our visitors avoid being fooled by a faux Rolex watch. Keep in mind that every model Rolex has varying distinctions of design, and therefore each replica will have separate elements that will mark it’s lack of authenticity.

For example, the Rolex DateJust replica models often have a distinctively low-quality clasp of the bracelet. Many DateJust replica’s are also manufactured with a clear back casing, exposing the mechanical components of the watch. This is the marking of a fake.

1. Genuine Rolex Watches will not have clear case backings, or skeleton casing, on any production model watch.

*(There are only 2 “known” examples of Rolex watches with glass “exhibition backs”, and they are both vintage manual wind models from the 1930s, and they were not “production” models.)*

2. Genuine Rolex Watches will have a serial and case reference number that can be found between the lugs, engraved on the side of the case.

The thin, fine lines are almost diamond-cut in appearance with these engraved numbers on a Genuine Rolex Watch. A replica will appear sand-blasted and have much less space between the etched numbers.

*(Many replica’s will be sporting the same fake serial number: “R863698”)*

3. Genuine Rolex Watches second hands will have a smooth and continuous movement. This element cannot be mimicked, though fake’s definitely try. If there are any jerking movements of the second hand, you are probably holding a replica.

4. Genuine Rolex Watches (since 2002) do not leave the factory without a 3-dimensional hologram encoded sticker on the caseback. Some replica models have tried to re-create the hologram, but the display remains the same when viewed from various angles (a tell-tale sign of a fake).

5. Genuine Rolex Watches ( Submariner, Sea-Dweller and Daytona Models) feature a ‘Triplock crown.” This authentic mark is identified by 3 tiny dots located underneath the engraved trademark “crown” logo at the winding crown end, viewable only when the winding crown is fully unscrewed.

These 5 red flags should definitely help you out when faced with the possible presence of a phony Rolex watch. Keep in mind that most things seemingly too good to be true usually are. Additionally, if there is a specific Rolex model that you are interested in, do a bit of research on the known signs of replica attributes that have been associated with that model Rolex. Purchase your Genuine Rolex Watch from a trusted, reputable dealer (i.e. Raymond Lee Jewelers).
