Highly sought after Rolex watches like the Submariner or Yacht-master range can potentially be worth a lot of money. When giving you your valuation, we will need to look at a few different things. This typically means we equally assess four key areas:

Its model

As already mentioned, there are some notable models of Rolex that hold a particularly high value. However, the great thing about Rolex watches in particular is that they are world-renowned for continually being top quality, regardless of the exact model.

Its condition

The condition of your watch, both inside and out, is significant when looking to sell or access loans against Rolex watches. From an aesthetic point of view, we lend against Rolex watches that are free from major scratches and harsh wear and tear. We are able to offer far higher loans against Rolex watches when the interior is functioning just as well, and it is performing all of the tasks it was designed to do.

Its provenance

Proof of where your Rolex came from, be it from the store or from the previous owner, is also highly desirable. Other documents that prove its authenticity, such as certificates, also help in the valuation process. We recommend you try to find any service history before bringing your Rolex to us for appraisal.

Its age

Old Rolex watches, like the classic Rolex Oyster, are highly desirable amongst collectors, and can fetch a large sum of money when being pawned with us. However, we weigh the age heavily alongside other factors as well, such as its condition. If it is more than 50 years old, is still in full working order, and you are thinking, “I would like to pawn or sell my Rolex watch”, we would be very excited to appraise it for you.
