Of course, you buy a Rolex watch for its design and quality. If you pay attention to a few things, you can also increase the value of many models to increase your money. Unfortunately, the already tense delivery situation has deteriorated further in recent years, which has led to steel models that are hard to get and rising prices on the secondary market. Suitable for those who want to sell a Rolex – bad for those who want to buy one.
Which Rolex Models Are Still Suitable As An Investment?
In addition to the Daytona, a few other models are coveted and traded well above the retail price, but you can buy directly from a Rolex dealer with luck or on trips abroad. That applies to:
- Deepsea with blue D-Blue dial
In the last six months, these three models have increased in value.
Where Is The Best Place To Buy It?
The first choice are Rolex watches (นาฬิกา โร เล็ก ซ์ which is the term in Thai) concessionaire. Because here authenticity, a serial number and warranty card, a complete box, and an invoice are guaranteed. When buying through renowned auction houses, you can also assume the authenticity of the watches. However, with other dealers and especially with private individuals, caution is advised: stolen goods, fake alerts, or – much more difficult to recognize – counterfeit dials in authentic watches, as is sometimes the case with the Deepsea with D-Blue dial, are not uncommon.
What Else Increases The Value?
In addition to the authenticity, the papers, the condition, and a complete box also increase the value. Later sales will also be easier if the warranty card shows the country code. Because with this you are on the safe side with the last questions about the import sales tax.
What Should You Watch Out For?
If you buy abroad, you have to pay VAT and import customs duties. In return, you can have VAT reimbursed for export in many countries. In any case, one should calculate precisely because some bargains turn out to be unprofitable. If you sell a watch again within a year, you have to pay tax on the profit.
