Bob’s Watches Streamlines The Rolex Market With An Electronic Exchange

Rolex-Tudor watches allowed

“Customers are able to see both the ‘Buy’ and ‘Sell’ prices for each model Rolex and the website attracts over 200, 000 visitors each month, ” said Altieri. “Bob’s Watches serves as an online marketplace, or facilitator, for pre-owned Rolex watch customers as the secondary market was long overdue for a more efficient way to connect buyers and sellers.”

If this seems obvious, it is. However, in the benighted world of watch retail, Bob’s is basically Google. Forums where users bought and sold watches online have been around for most of the past decade and new services like Eleven James and Crown & Caliber are trying to integrate watch resellers and owners into the modern web but it’s definitely slow going.

Many watch brands are going online. Tissot was the first major brand with a stragglers coming up behind every year. Transparency is an anathema to the luxury market primarily because, 99% of the time, you’re buying branding. However, if you’re a lover of fine watches you’ll understand the strange draw they have on collectors.

Then try to sell it at a profit later. Good luck with that. Unless it is a collectable piece or an antique you will lose because of the dealer spread. There is a huge difference between the price a jewelry dealer's selling price and buying price for the same item. Jewelry dealers typically have a 400% markup.
If jewelry is an investment why do you see it in pawn shops.
Co-workers tell me the same thing about Rolex watches. Good luck with that too.
