The high investment potential of Rolex watches drives the shortage of its products occasioned by desirability. Rolex watches are hot, practically functional, elegant, and long-lasting. Rolex brand represents excellent craftsmanship and ingenuity, remarkable heritage, significant investment, and innovation. Having a Rolex watch commands respect. Here, we will discuss the most coveted watches.
Desirability is the driver of the high demand for Rolex Daytona, especially with introducing Rolex in-house movement, the caliber 4130. It created a shortage of the steel version of the timepiece. The turning point in the high demand began when Rolex introduced the panda dials/black ceramic LN model. This timepiece with perfectly dosed vintage influence became a tremendous success as high demands and an endless waiting list creates more demand tension. The desirability and fiery demand of the Rolex Steel Daytona 116500LN were worth the rush. Why? The white and black dials with the watch quality are remarkable. The performance and the black bezel are top-notch. The problem with this watch is that it’s practically non-existent. Rolex Daytona steel/ceramic remains the most sought-after Rolex to date. The black dial model retails for about USD 22,000 while the while dial model retails for USD 25,000.
The Rolex Submariner needs no introduction as it is perhaps the most iconic timepiece in the industry. It features steel and gold, steel, white or yellow gold, and multiple models. Out of the entire models of the Rolex Submariner, the rarest three editions include the 116610LV, 116610LN, and the 114060 no date. The waitlist is almost endless, especially for the green “Hulk” edition. The outrageous demand maybe because of the uniqueness of the model and integrating bold green dials and bezel with the attainment of a collectible status. Submariner “Hulk” 116610LV retails at USD 9,050, and the timing device is rarely available in the second market.
Rolex GMT Master
The Rolex GMT Master came as a pre-designed watch to solve the challenges of Pan American airways. Launched in 1954 and made for airline navigators and pilots, the timepiece came enabled for Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), other time zones, and a 24-hour display fourth-hand complication. Its rotatable 24-hour scale bezel aids the setting of the second’s time zone. Looking similar to the maiden edition of the 1980s, the new model comes integrated with an independent quickset hour hand which you can reset to show the local time without interrupting the average minutes or seconds. You can estimate the third time zone reference without a hassle.
Introduced in 1967, the Rolex Sea-Dweller remains one of the best divers and mariners’ favorite timepieces. The watch pushes the boundary of water-tightness to an extraordinary depth of 2000 fee. In recent developments, they upgraded the clock to enable divers to reach a 4000 feet depth. The waterproof nature is only possible with the original helium escape valve that thwarts excess pressure and balances the air within the chamber. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is muscular and a great timepiece.
The Rolex Explorer I and Explorer II are perfect timepieces introduced in 1953 and 1971, respectively, and are designed for those who love navigating rough terrain. These watches belong to the family of Rolex Oyster Perpetual with exceptional waterproof performance, legibility, signature profile, and luminescent indices. With remarkable elegance, Rolex Explorer II is among the most popular models of the brand’s watches. Rolex watches command great respect in the world. Desirability drives its high demand occasioned by its craftsmanship, elegance, great heritage, and priceless worth. Rolex Daytona, Explorer, Submariner, Rolex GMT Master, and Rolex Sea-Dweller are some of Rolex’s most coveted watches.
