Top 10 rolex watches
Top 10 rolex watches

What are the most popular Rolex watches? We’re going to get into that but first let’s take a look at Rolex itself, it’s probably one of the most famous and recognizable brands out there, and certainly the most popular watch brand out there. But the marque that stands for quality, luxury and exclusivity is as complex as they come.

Over the years Rolex has released a huge range of watches to suit every niche and taste, all with different features and styles that hold a unique place in the great Rolex collection. So what are the most popular Rolex watches? According to the search results, we took to the internet to find out what are the top 12 most popular Rolex watches.

The founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, was a bit like that when he made his company logo a crown – it has been the king of watch brands for over a century. Its huge brand equity is partly because Rolex gives so little away, which is the key to its mystique. It is often ranked number one in UK superbrands surveys and is included in Forbes’ list of the world’s most powerful brands. Ask 100 people to name a luxury watch and most of them will say Rolex.

But this reputation is not just marketing – Rolex is Rolex because it makes unparalleled products. We love the fact that so many classic Rolex models weren’t just made to look good, but for specific, adventurous purposes. The GMT-Master, for example, was created for Pan-Am pilots, then faced with a new phenomenon called jet-lag — they wanted a watch that showed two time zones simultaneously. The submarine was designed for divers. Mulgas was introduced in the fifties as an antimagnetic watch for people who worked in power plants, medical facilities and early nuclear research laboratories, where strong electromagnetic fields were present.

Collectors are particularly passionate about Rolex sports models, which have long been associated with explorers, adventurers and athletes. Apart from the iconic James Bond Submariner, an early version of the GMT was worn by American flying ace Chuck Yeager as well as several astronauts. Rolex lends itself to being worn up and down more than other luxury watch brands, and the company has mastered the art of design adaptation: collectors wax a different-colored bezel here, or there. A big crown. All of this contributes somewhat to their collectability and value – if you’re going to buy an investment watch, buy a Rolex. According to Christie’s, Rolexes gain value faster and more consistently than any other brand.

Wilsdorf had the gift of foresight. He made an early bet on the wristwatch and each of his major innovations (fitting the timepiece to the wrist, making it accurate, waterproofing and automating it) helped create the modern wristwatch as we know it. On the downside, some say that Rolex differentiates its designs even less than other companies: and that’s saying something for the watch world, where a ‘revolutionary development’ equates to a new case size. Or there is a slightly different type of placement of gold. There is no Rolex tourbillon, or symbol of the zodiac complication. The submarine of 2019 is similar to the submarine of 50 years ago.

The counter argument is that you don’t mess with perfection. Instead of visible whistles and bells, the company focuses on research and engineering, quietly constantly updating the technology inside its watches. A more common grumble is that it’s too hard to buy a Rolex right now — demand is outstripping supply, at least for some models, while the aftershocks of the pandemic are still being felt on supply chains. None of this, contrary to one suggestion, is down to limiting the supply of Rolex. On the other hand, the thrill of owning a Rolex is also chasing – if you’re lucky enough to buy one, chances are you’ll remember exactly when and where you were when you did. .

As such, there is every reason to believe that the Rolex Crown will remain strong for another hundred years and beyondIt’s time for our annual review of the top 10 Rolex watches according to our readers.

Top 10 Rolex Watches

It’s a mix of modern and vintage Rolexes, which is always hotly debated among enthusiasts. There are pros and cons to both sides and in our articles, we try to give you some of our thoughts on both accounts. We ourselves have a slight preference for vintage models, at least most Fratello editors, but modern Rolex watches (if available) are also hot. Below is a review of the top 10 Rolex watches, compiled using interest in our Rolex articles over the past 12 months. Without further ado, here you go.

1. Rolex Submariner 41 mm

Last year Rolex introduced its new Submariner collection and the world went crazy. The new Submariner is slightly larger at 41mm than the previous model, with a larger lug size, but slim lugs that are a bit more reminiscent of the non-ceramic Submariner models. Mike wrote an article on why he prefers the new Submariner watches over the 40mm ceramic models in this article.

2. Rolex Submariner 126610LV

3rd Green Rolex Submariner Reference: 126610LV. It is the successor to the 41mm edition “The Hulk” that was introduced in 2010. A worthy successor to the Green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), which was originally introduced to celebrate the Submariner’s 50th anniversary. In this article, put all three editions side by side.

3. Rolex Daytona

  • Rolex-Daytona
  • Rolex Daytona 116500

A quick history of the Rolex Daytona: The Rolex Cosmograph Ref 6239 was released by Rolex in 1963 and was originally called the Le Mans. It wasn’t until 1965 that Rolex named the watch the Daytona. Early versions of the Rolex Daytona were fitted with push-in chronograph buttons in 1965 before waterproof screws were installed in the pushers. In 1988, Rolex introduced the first self-winding Daytona using the Zenith L Primero movement. This movement was slightly modified by Rolex and named the 4030. In 2000, Rolex released the Daytona with an in-house movement. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 116520 was available with white or black dials and used the Rolex caliber 4130 automatic movement with a 72-hour power reserve. Rolex Daytona 116520 Last steel model with engraved stainless steel bezel.

Current Version: Rolex released the latest incarnation of the Rolex Daytona in 2016 with the 116500. This new model is the first steel Rolex Daytona to feature a black ceramic bezel. 116500 is available with white or black dials and is only available on an all-steel Oyster bracelet. These are the only precious metal versions available on a rubber Oysterflex strap.

Our pick: While we absolutely love it, the current version of the Rolex Daytona will be ruled out due to excessive pricing – unless you’re lucky enough to get it at retail from your local AD. can We’d go for the early Daytona 116520, possibly a thinner hand version, or the final version with an updated clip and blue glowing Chromalight dial.

 The Rolex GMT Master II (Steel)

Top 10 rolex watches

A Quick History of the Rolex GMT Master: The Rolex GMT Master was released by Rolex in 1954 with the reference 6542 featuring a luminous bakelite bezel and powered by a Caliber 1036 automatic movement with a GMT complication. . The red/blue Pepsi bezel was specifically in collaboration with Pan-Am Airways to allow the wearer to track two different time zones. The GMT Master 6542 is known by collectors as the “Pussy Galore” worn by the character in the 1964 film Goldfinger. In 1959, Rolex released the GMT Master 1675. This model was in production until 1980 and was equipped with both the 1565 and 1575 calibers throughout its life and was available with a red/blue Pepsi bezel and all black.

It’s somewhat surprising that submarines are read more on Fretillo than Daytona. But some may have dismissed the brands chronograph as unattainable. Unless you’re willing to spend as much as a mid-sized family car for this steel iconic watch. We have a few Daytona owners on our team, but I only see Ben wearing them regularly. His personal story on Daytona can be read here.

4. Rolex Explorer 36 mm

The Explorer was always a bit of a Rolex for those in the know. And maybe it still is, but it gained amazing traction on our website when Rolex introduced new 36mm editions in steel and two colors. The two-tone Explorer, as strange as it may sound, is something we’re (very) slowly warming up to. We covered the new Rolex Explorer here.

5. Rolex Datejust

Rolex Datejust 36

Over the years, this review of the top 10 Rolex watches has changed from not having a single datist to an increasing position each year. You can’t go wrong with Datejust, it’s a classic. This year, Rolex introduced new dial variations for the iconic date watch. We’ve written about the new dial options here.

A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and probably hotter than ever. We reviewed all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this article, starting with the models available today. After only being in the catalog for a short while (I won’t write “available”), the Oyster bracelet is back, along with the Jubilee bracelet. When Rolex introduced its new one, there wasn’t much of a fuss about it, but fans quickly picked up on it. We covered the return here.

7. Rolex Explorer II 226570

Rolex Explorer II 226570

The watch you’ve been waiting for! The Rolex Explorer II Reference 226570 was introduced earlier this year, as the successor to the Rolex Explorer II 216570 which was introduced 10 years ago in 2011. Updates are kept to a minimum, but that may be just one reason why they’re so successful. Our introductory article on the new 42mm Explorer II can be found here.

8. Rolex Submariner 5513

Rolex 5513 – Top 10 Rolex Watches

From #5 to #8 this year. The 5513 is a Rolex with a very long production run, but the 5513 in particular in this article has done very (very!) well over the years.

Rolex Submariner 16610

Quick History of the Rolex Submariner: The Rolex Submariner was released by Rolex in 1954 at the Baselworld. However, Rolex actually produced the Rolex 6202 Turn-O-Graph in 1953 and is believed to be the birth year of their iconic dive watch. Reference 6204 was the first Rolex to feature the word “Submariner” on the dial and the now instantly recognizable dial layout of an inverted triangle at the 12 o’clock position, batons 3, 6 and 9; and dot markers for remaining hours. Mercedes-style sports hands first found their way onto the Submariner reference 6205. The Submariner evolved slowly in the 1950s and made its way to the big screen in 1962 when Sean Connery wore the Submariner reference 6538 in the first James Bond film: Doctor No.

It wasn’t until 1969 that the Rolex Submariner made a date with the release of the 1680. The 1680 was also the first submarine to feature a magnifying Cyclops above the date window. The Rolex Submariner continued to evolve into the 1970s and in 1979 Rolex released a 5-digit version of the Submariner starting at 16800. This transitional submariner featured a number of upgrades over the previous version, including a sapphire crystal, patented triple-lock crown, a d. 300m (1,000ft) rating and a threaded, unidirectional rotating bezel. The Rolex Submariner 16610 was released in 1988 and is powered by the brands longest serving movement, the Rolex caliber 3135. The tritium dial was phased out in the late 90s with watches being fitted with “SWISS MADE” examples – including the Super Lumina Nova and Full Hour Hours. The hand released the Rolex Submariner 116610LN in 2010 which saw major upgrades over previous versions including a black cerachrome (ceramic) bezel, 40mm ‘super case’ and ‘maxi dial’.

Current version: Rolex Submariner 126600LN was released in 2020. This current version of the Rolex Submariner has grown to 41mm but the overall feel of the watch has not been enhanced due to the thinner lugs. The Oyster bracelet has also been updated. The Rolex Submariner 126610LN is powered by the Rolex Caliber 3235 automatic movement with a 70-hour power reserve.

Our Pick: As with the Rolex Daytona 116500LN we don’t feel the high asking price of the Rolex Submariner 126610LN is justified. We’ll go for an early Rolex Submariner 16610 date with a tritium dial (T25).Check out our Rolex Submariner watches for sale.For more information on the Rolex Submariner, visit the Rolex website.

Rolex Air King

Rolex

Often passed over in favor of the Submariner, GMT-Master or one of its flashier cousins, the Air King is a stunning watch. It is one of Rolex’s more venerable lines, having been launched in 1945 as an entry-level model costing less than £100, around a third of the price of the Datejust. One of the many “air” watches produced to honor RAF pilots during World War II – see also the long-forgotten Air-Lion, Air-Giant and Air-Tiger – its “King”. The name refers to its size, a large 34mm at the time – small by today’s standards. The unusual mix of large 3, 6 and 9 numerals and prominent minute scale isn’t for everyone (Rolex is known for ‘classic’ designs, shout the naysayers, and it’s not) but we’re firm fans of Esquire. are made . . Relaunched in 2022, the Air King now comes with a redesigned bracelet, Rolex’s latest caliber 3230 movement and a more efficient gear train, giving it a 70-hour power reserve. Bonus trivia: This is the only Rolex that uses the brand’s gold and green color scheme.

While most expect this to be a logical price correction due to the hype surrounding the brand, others believe they will come down even further. Either way, Rolex models still sell for more than their list prices, so they’re still hot investment properties.

Which generation of Rolex watches can be a good investment?

Top 10 rolex watches

While there’s no guarantee, we’ve come up with a list of five Rolex models that are likely to increase in value over time. And by “time” we mean a long period of time. There really are no quick wins when it comes to getting a serious return on your investment. Especially with the current market, it will take time to speculate before you get a return. No guarantee is given. So let’s find out what we think could be a good Rolex investment. All of these are nine-vintage, five-figure references that haven’t increased in value like newer models or true vintage pieces. This is why they are still relatively affordable. On top of that, they are future classics, which makes them even more interesting as long-term investments.

In one of the previous articles about Rolex investing, I talked about the Rolex Explorer II Ref. 216570. This time I refer to the Rolex Explorer II. 16570. It was introduced in 1989 as a follow-up to the Ref. 16550 while the Explorer II still featured a 40-mm case size, and came with some significant updates over its predecessor. First, the Rolex Ref. 16570 is powered by the famous caliber 3185, a significant update in terms of technology. For the final run of models, Rolex updated the movement to caliber 3186, a new movement with some minor upgrades.

Rolex produced the Explorer II Ref. 16570 for a total of 22 years before being completely replaced by the new and larger Ref. 216570 in 2011. The watch is available with a black dial or a white “Polar” dial. For the white dial version, Rolex replaced the white gold outline around the hour markers with black, creating a stark contrast. Rolex also updated the bezel on the ref. 16570 Tritium to Luminova, Super Luminova. Prices for a Ref 16570 without original box and papers start around $7,000 to $7,500. If you want a complete set, expect to pay between $8,000 and $11,000 depending on condition. Considering the prices of new Explorer II models, that’s a pretty good deal.

2. Rolex Submariner Ref. 14060

Next up is another icon, the Rolex Submariner. Different generations and versions of the world’s most famous diving watch have also gone up in price considerably. In a previous article, I wrote about how Submariner Ref. 16610 with date display was a great option. For this list, I would like to talk about the Rolex Submariner Ref. 14060 which was available at the same time and comes without a date display. If you’re looking to get your hands on a reasonably affordable Rolex Submariner, both of these references are excellent options and represent the best that Rolex has to offer: iconic design, bulletproof movements, and excellent craftsmanship. These watches can basically last you a lifetime, even though they are from the 1980s.

Rolex Submariner Ref. The 14060 was in production from 1990 to 2010, during which time Rolex made minor updates to it. One of the most important was the transition from tritium lumens to Luminova in the late 90s, and superluminova soon after. The second major update came in the form of movement. Rolex replaced the caliber 3000 with the more advanced caliber 3130. This new version is also known as the Rolex Submariner Ref. 14060M old reference. 14060 models start at around $9,000 and can go up to $14,000. New reference. The 104060M starts around $9,500 and can demand up to $15,000 in excellent condition with official box and papers. Overall, this Submariner Ref. 14060 will probably become a highly respected and sought after classic over time.

3. Rolex C-Devil Ref. 16600

I talked about the Rolex Sea Dweller Ref. 16600 in a previous article in this series. It’s still one of the best watches you can buy that’s somewhat affordable and likely to appreciate over time. So I want to mention it again. The biggest difference between a submarine and a sea dweller is the sea dweller’s increased water resistance, resulting in a thicker case. Additionally, the Sea-dweller comes with a helium escape valve on the left side of the case to enable diving at greater depths.

However, we do not differentiate between Datejust and Lady-Datejust, as Rolex does. Moreover, the Deep C is a C-Dollar variant, and thus we include it in this particular model family.

Rolex’s lineup is roughly split in half between “classic” and “professional” models.

Professional watches—including the Air King, GMT-Master II, Yacht-Master, Submariner, Cosmograph Daytona, Sea-dweller, Explorer, and Milgauss—were each designed for a specific purpose, whether SCUBA. Diving, yachting, driving, spelunking, etc

It is important to note that while some professional watches have enhanced functionality and water resistance, classic watches are no less well-made. (The Sky-dweller, one of Rolex’s most complicated watches, is finally housed in the Classic collection.) There’s also no clear distinction in price between one collection versus the other — the Classic collection has $5,500 Oyster Perpetuals, and There are also $46,750 SkyDwellers. A similar limitation is true of professional collections.

Rolex Price and Availability

Talk about prices: Rolex watches range from about $5,000 for a ladies’ Oyster Perpetual to hundreds of thousands of dollars for an “iced-out” Daytona with diamonds. This is one of the amazing things about the Rolex catalog and worth celebrating – for one of the world’s most famous luxury brands, the price of entry, while certainly not modest, is not prohibitive by any means. Is. Say, there is a Patek Philippe watch.

One thing to keep in mind about the way we’ve noted pre-owned prices: We’ve included the lowest commonly found price of any model within a given model line. What’s new, vintage or new, men’s or women’s. So, for example, if you’re wondering why you can’t find a pre-owned, current model Oyster Perpetual for $3,000, it’s because that’s the lowest common price. We’ve found used OP, period. In this case, something like a vintage 34mm OP from the 1950s or 1960s.

Unfortunately, such is the case with Rolex watches these days that many are not readily available at retail, and this includes watches that were once very expensive, such as Oyster Perpetuals. For example, a new 36mm Oyster Perpetual in light blue that came out in 2020 will probably cost you $20,000 for the 36mm model right now – and that’s for a watch that costs $5,800. Bottom line: Don’t expect to pay below retail for any current catalog Rolex model, full stop. Expect to pay more. much more.

Pricing on vintage models is very forgiving. Since sports models such as Subs, Daytonas, GMT-Masters, etc. are heavily focused on, if you’re willing to look small or large, you can get yourself a great watch for under $5,000. . There are a couple of important points to note here, however: One is that Rolex has restricted parts sales to independent watchmakers, meaning that it is increasingly difficult to get the right parts and service for vintage Rolex watches. . It is expensive to do so.

Second, there are countless “Franken watches”—watches made from parts of various models—and outright fakes. That’s why we recommend buying vintage watches from reputable dealers, such as Eric Wind of Wind Vintage, James Lamden Analogue/Shift, Jessica Kozobek Tropical Watch, and more.
