The Rundown on Rolex References
Whether you are looking to purchase your first Rolex or want to add to your already extensive collection, it can be overwhelming trying to decide which model is for you. Although Rolex is ubiquitous in the watch world, not everyone is familiar with each model and its complications. With variations in metal, bracelet style, bezel style, dial material and assorted special complications, there are a multitude of options from which to choose.
For those looking to buy their first, Rolex makes a few models that could be considered “starter watches.” The most common are the Air-King, Explorer and Oyster Perpetual DateJust. These watches have basic complications and are lower priced than most other models by the brand. The simple movement and typically stainless steel metal options make them the some of the more affordable luxury watches on the market.
Other possibilities include the classic yet sporty Submariner and Daytona, which are easily worn on any occasion. There are many different models of these styles, including in stainless steel, gold, or platinum. If you are looking to purchase a Rolex as an investment, in addition to a stylish wristwatch, these are extremely popular choices that are transitional and remain valuable on the secondary market.
While Rolex in general remains a strong brand overall, the top tier includes the widely-coveted President, the Yachtmaster II and the Sky Dweller, especially in gold, or platinum in some cases.
