When people think of investments, they typically think of property, stocks, or bonds. These are certainly the most traditional and safe forms of monetary investment. However, some luxury items can also be investment pieces that increase in value over time. One such example is Rolex watches. Rolex watches have consistently increased in value since the brand was established, and many of their classic timepieces are now considered safe luxury investments since they are virtually guaranteed to hold their value. If you own a Rolex watch and need cash quickly, a collateral loan against your watch could earn you a lot more than you think while still allowing you to keep your investment piece for years to come.
Why Are Rolex Watches Valuable?
The short answer is that Rolex is the biggest watch brand in the world. A widely-recognized brand name adds inherent value to any item. Beyond this, several factors have caused Rolex to become a brand whose products hold their value: they’re made of high-quality materials, they’re highly in demand, they have a good brand heritage, they have an impressive list of famous customers and spokespeople, they’re easily recognized, and they’re widely available. The combination of these factors has made Rolex watches not only hold their value over time but actually increase in value. In fact, a Rolex traditionally increases in value by 5-15 percent each year.
As with all luxury goods, you have to choose the right model in order to guarantee your investment. With Rolex, sports watches such as the Submarine and the Cosmograph Daytona are desirable and classic models that can be consistently sold for the purchase price or higher. More contemporary, colorful, or customized Rolex watches, on the other hand, are more likely to depreciate in value as trends change. While some of them may end up being rare and collectible, there’s no way to guarantee this, making a classic model a much more reliable investment.
Collateral Rolex Loans with Watch & Wares
The cost of purchasing a new Rolex watch from retail stores has increased exponentially over the past three decades, even accounting for monetary inflation, and this trend is likely to continue. A classic Rolex previously purchased for $4,000 may now cost $6,000, for example, and would, therefore, be worth more than was paid for it at the time. Collateral loans are an excellent way to take advantage of this trend if you’re in need of quick cash. You can receive more money for the loan than you spent on the watch if you’ve had it for several years, which is advantageous in itself. It also means that you don’t have to sell the watch and lose your investment permanently. Following the repayment of the loan, you’ll have your item returned to your possession, and you can hold onto it for longer allowing its value to appreciate even more.

Rolex’s global recognition and established history in the luxury market makes it a classic choice that people will continually desire.
