Replica Best Rolex Investments 2023: Ultimate Buying Guide
Lastly, two-tone watches have been experiencing a resurgence in popularity in recent years, so if it’s a two-tone Submariner that you’re interested in adding to your collection, you can snag the stainless steel and 18k yellow gold ref. 16613 for nearly the same price as the all stainless steel model. For those that are looking for the steel and gold aesthetic, this is a deal that is incredibly hard to pass up, and you will even have the option of either blue or black dials and bezels when choosing a two-tone Submariner.
The Oyster Perpetual is one of the oldest names in Rolex’s catalog and for the last several years, it has occupied the position of being Rolex’s entry-level collection of best swiss watches replica. While there has historically not been all that much hype surrounding the line, 2023 marked a huge year for the Rolex Oyster Perpetual, and the updates to the collection even stole some of the headlines away from the brand-new Submariner.
Along with new movements and a range of vibrant dial colors came a brand new 41mm version of the Oyster Perpetual, which took the place of the largest model in the lineup. The vibrant dial versions of both the 41mm ref. 124300 and 36mm ref. 126000 are both extremely popular and are currently trading hands for anywhere between 50% to 150% above their brand-new retail prices on the open market.
However, some are still holding out and waiting for their names to come up at local authorized retailers, while countless others are still debating about which models they want to purchase. We always recommend that people should buy what they love and that personal preference should be the number one determining factor when choosing a watch. However, the fact remains that watches can often serve as investments, and the potential future value of a watch is something to consider while you make your decision. So, what are the best investment watches for 2023?
Before we get started, it is important to clarify what we mean by an “investment watch” and let you know that there is no “get rich quick” scheme to be found here. Instead, this guide is meant to highlight some currently undervalued Rolex watches, references that have recently become discontinued, and models that will likely be more expensive to acquire should you delay your purchase by another year. Now, without further ado, here are the best Rolex watches to invest in for 2022.
There are few luxury watches in existence more widely regarded as blue-chip investments than the Rolex Submariner and 2020 was a huge year for the collection, with Rolex discontinuing all existing 40mm models and rolling out a whole new line of models with 41mm cases. Like with any recently released stainless steel Rolex sports model, open market prices for the new Submariner replica rolex watch are incredibly high; however, this means that the previous generation now represents a highly appealing value proposition.
Despite the 1mm difference in size and some slightly altered proportions, the current ref. 126610LN wears incredibly similar to the previous ref. 116610LN. While the older model lacks the updated Cal. 3235 movement, it can now be purchased for a few thousand dollars less than the brand-new version, while still offering the vast majority of the same features like a Cerachrom (ceramic) bezel, blue-glowing Chromalight lume, and a solid-link bracelet with Glidelock clasp.
Additionally, the older generations with 40mm cases and aluminum bezel inserts, particularly the ref. 16610 and ref. 14060 also offer strong investment potential for 2021. Not only are they among the least expensive Rolex Submariner models available, but they are also the last generation to feature the classic proportions of the watch before the introduction of Super Cases and Maxi dials. These watches saw nearly a 20% increase in value over the course of 2020, and prices continue to stay on the rise for them as we enter the second half of 2023.
