Where Can You Sell Your Old Rolex?

Selling a Rolex watch, particularly if it is an old piece, is sometimes painful to its owners especially if the owner has a long history with the watch.

Remember that original dials are valued more than refurbished dial and even if the original piece is not in tip-top shape, this valuation is still true.

Watches made of white or yellow gold, 14k or 18k, platinum, and even stainless steel are what most buyers typically look for so the materials used in your Rolex will be considered as well. A premium is what buyers pay if you have the original box and papers with the timepiece, so make sure to take note of that.
