We consider any recent information we can locate from auction private sale records to ensure our valuations are accurate.

The age of your Rolex can have a positive or negative impact on value. Contemporary modern Rolex watches tend to have a higher value when they are newer.

WHAT IS THE ROGER ROLEX PARTNERSHIP?

Rolex is a brand that holds its value incredibly well so it picks its associations carefully. It’s no surprise, then, that Rolex has opted to partner not only with the four Grand Slam tournaments – the Australian Open, Roland-Garros, The Championships, Wimbledon, the US Open – but also with Swiss tennis superstar, Roger Federer. The first player to win 20 men’s singles Grand Slam titles, Federer represents excellence the highest of standards in his fields – just like Rolex. With Rolex keeping time at Wimbledon since 1978, it marked the start of the brand’s relationship with sport. Not only has a Rolex watch graced Federer’s wrist in many Wimbledon finals, but the Rolex clock has kept guard over some of Centre Court’s finest match points.

WHAT ARE THE ORIGINS OF ROLEX WHY IS IT A VALUABLE PERSONAL ASSET?

Rolex has its origins in London in 1905, where it was founded by Hans Wilsdorf at the age of 24. Hans had dreams of a watch worn on the wrist which was actually able to tell the precise time – something which didn’t happen with the wristwatches on the market. Using Swiss mechanisms, Hans set out to win over his public. His persistence proved worth his while by1910, Hans developed the first watch to be granted the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision from the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne, Switzerland. Rolex was on the way up. This award was consolidated in 1914 with the Kew Observatory award for class “A” precision certificate. This award had previously just been awarded for marine chronometers, so from this point forward, Rolex was intrinsically linked with precision. In 1919, Rolex moved to Geneva in Switzerland, considered to be the natural home of excellent timekeeping kept pushing the boundaries of science with the first waterproof watch in 1926. Called the ‘Oyster’, the watch is hermetically sealed to protect against not only water but also dust dirt. Never shy of proving a point, the Rolex Oyster claimed its waterproof ‘stripes’ when it was worn by Mercedes Gleitz when she swam the English Channel in 1927. The Oyster was, of course, perfectly dry at the end. The 1930s saw Rolex go from strength to strength with the invention of the world’s first self-winding mechanism faced many sporting challenges with success. Sir Malcolm Campbell wore his Rolex when he repeatedly broke the world land speed record. Always keeping the consumer in mind, 1945 saw the creation of the Datejust, which allowed the date to be displayed in a window on the dial of self-winding watches. It did take a decade, though, for this to move to women’s watches. Rolex took a slight, although natural, change of direction in the 1950’s when watches became more like equipment for diving, mountain climbing scientific discovery. Rolex was put to the test when Sir Edmund Hillary Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mount Everest, wearing Oyster Perpetuals. It was also during this time, that Rolex was able to be taken under the sea to a depth of 100m without consequence The Rolex later managed a depth of 10,916. Straddling time zones became part of Rolex’s repertoire when the GMT Master became the official watch of many airlines, including Pan Am. In 1956, The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the world’s pre-eminent particle physics laboratory, confirmed that the Milgauss watch could resist magnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. In 1971, the Oyster Perpetual Explorer II was dedicated to polar explorers, speleologists, all those pushing the boundaries of exploration. The watch featured a distinctive 24-hour hand, an invaluable aid around the poles beneath ground when you can’t tell night from day. Rolex’s links with yachting were strengthened in the 1990’s with the launch of the Oyster Perpetual Yacht-Master that link, based on sponsorship, is still going strong in 2014. How deep? On March 26th, 2012, filmmaker National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence James Cameron descended into the Mariana Trench, making the first solo dive into the deepest point on earth, the only dive into the trench since the two-man Trieste expedition of 1960. The only thing that both voyages shared was a Rolex.

DOES THE ROLEX HAVE A HISTORY OF PAWNBROKING?

Suttons and Robertsons, a pawnbroker based in central London advances loans against all variations of Rolex watches, as well as other prestigious watch brands. To enhance our knowledge of these timepieces, it always helps to learn about the brand’s history heritage, if for no other reason than an anecdote for any watch enthusiast we may be lending money to, against one of their prized possessions. Few have more stories than Rolex, so please allow us to tell one of those stories… Throughout its illustrious history, Rolex has sponsored attached itself as a brand to some of the most important chapters of history. From Sir Edmund Hillary sporting a Rolex Explorer on his wrist, as he triumphantly conquered Mount Everest for the first time alongside Tenzing Norgay in 1953, to a Rolex Deepsea Challenge watch, which survived being attached to the submersible that took James Cameron 10,908m into the depths of the Pacific Ocean, to reach ‘Challenger Deep’, the deepest point of the oceans of the world. These important advances in watch technology have always been much more than just gimmicks have provided the collector with a rich source of timepieces, these luxury watches have continued to be a good investment too. As Rolex watches have remained a good store of value, they have become a perfect form of collateral for a pawnbrokers loan. Always a brand to push the boundaries of the capabilities of previous wristwatches, it was one of their first marketing ploys, back in 1927 promoting the newly developed totally waterproof “Oyster” model, that proved to be one of their biggest coups. On October 7th 1927 Miss Mercedes Gleitz, a young typist part time swimmer from London, on her eighth attempt, had just become the first English woman only the twelfth person in history to successfully swim the English Channel. It had taken her fifteen hours fifteen minutes, the gruelling task had taken its toll on the young Miss Gleitz, who collapsed exhausted after the swim, remaining unconscious for over two hours. Unsurprising seeing as the swim had been attempted in the far more hazardous month of October, as opposed to the previously favoured months of July August. Glory, however, was short-lived for Mercedes Gleitz, as within a week of her triumphant swim, a woman by the name of Mona McLennan, claimed to have completed the same swim in a much faster time of thirteen hours ten minutes. However, suspicions quickly arose as the legitimacy of Mclennan’s claim, under closer scrutiny, she quickly admitted she was lying her entire account was a hoax. Unfortunately for Miss Gleitz, even though she had genuinely completed the swim, the public now had doubts as to whether or not her account of events rang true. Guilty by association it seemed. Deeply upset with the accusations, Miss Gleitz defiantly announced “Alright, I’ll do it again” the date of October 21st was set for what would be coined “The Vindication Swim”. Never one to miss an opportunity, Hans Wilsdorf, Managing Director Co-Founder of Rolex, caught wind of the upcoming event, saw this as the perfect vehicle to launch his new fully waterproof “Rolex Oyster” released the year before in 1926, into the public eye. Wilsdorf sent a letter to Miss Gleitz, offering her the gift of a gold Rolex Oyster watch, to wear during her mammoth swim. In exchange, Gleitz would provide a testimonial about the watch its performance. The Vindication Swim took place on 21st October 1927, according to the “The London Times” conditions were brutal. Extreme cold conditions meant that at times during the attempt Gleitz had to battle slipping into a coma, due to the exhaustion excesses she was putting her body through. Despite her valiant effort, after over ten hours of battling the elements, Mercedes Gleitz was lifted into a rescue boat seven miles short of the finish the vindication swim was over. However due to the massive character bravery displayed by Glietz during the attempt, few now had little doubt that her previous attempt had indeed been authentic. However, it was in the rescue boat that a reporter noticed a small gold watch being worn on a riband around the neck of Miss Gleitz, noticed he was keeping good time must have throughout the attempt. As promised on 27th October Mercedes Gleitz sent a letter to Hans Wilsdorf. It read: “You will like to hear that the Rolex Oyster watch that I carried on my Channel swim proved itself a reliable accurate timekeeping companion even though it was subjected to complete immersion for hours in seawater at a temperature of not more than 58 often as low as 51. This is to say nothing about the sustained buffeting it must have received. Not even the quick change to the high temperature in the boat cabin when I was lifted from the water seemed to affect the even tenor of its movement. The newspaperman was astonished I, of course, am delighted with it.” Wilsdorf obviously took full advantage of this priceless review purchasing a now-famous front-page advertisement in the “London Daily Mail” on November 24th. The Rolex Oyster had arrived, with the help of Mercedes Gleitz, arrived with worldwide acclaim.
