Rolex Price and FAQ Hong Kong

Rolex holds a special place in the world of high-end mechanical watches. It's the most valuable luxury watch brand in the world and is also one of the most expensive. The Swiss manufacturer produces iconic models that have become a true status symbol. Owning a contemporary Rolex day-date of a vintage Submariner, for example, tells a lot about who you are.

What makes Rolex so special?

The quality of its designs. The rarity of its materials. And most importantly, its impeccable production process that guarantees precise and accurate performances. All these fundamentals play an important role in Rolex's prestige. But there is so much more to the brand. Other watch manufacturers, such as Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet are equally apt at producing sublime watches.

The classic Rolex Submariner was the first wristwatch that divers could take to a depth of 100 meters (300 feet). Made popular by the original James Bond movies, although without the date and on a NATO strap, the Rolex Submariner is now one of the brand's most popular models. Stainless steel, yellow gold and white gold are available.

The Rolex Sky-Dweller is a self-winding watch which was originally designed for pilots and frequent travellers to keep track of two time zones at the same time. Wearers of the watch can set the local time on the main dial with traditional hour, minute, and second hands. An additional smaller dial off-centred can be adjusted to keep track of a second-time zone. You can choose from a combination of white gold, yellow gold and rose gold materials.

The elegant Rolex Datejust was first introduced in 1945 to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary. It has now become a predominant watch for business people around the world. The watch is so versatile that it can be worn as part of a business casual or business professional outfit. The Datejust is available in sizes ranging from 31mm to 34mm, 36mm and 41mm. There is also a special 28mm Lady-Datejust. The watch is available in stainless steel, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold.

How much is the cheapest Rolex watch?

The Oyster Perpetual is the cheapest out of all the Rolex watches, priced around HK$41,161. The Oyster Perpetual is the purest expression of the Oyster concept, providing a clear and accurate time display. This watch is the direct descendant of the original Oyster launched in 1926, the first waterproof wristwatch in the world and the foundation on which Rolex has built its reputation.

Why is a Rolex so expensive?

Watchmaking is a demanding profession and Rolex models are the best examples. A Rolex watch has very high in-house development costs in design and craftsmanship for luxury watches. It not only costs to develop the design and assemble them, but the materials used in the construction of the watch are also expensive. For example, other watches tend to use 316L steel but Rolex uses 904L steel. This makes them harder, shinier and also more expensive by default. Dials tend to be made of white gold and the bezels tend to be ceramic. The numbers themselves tend to be sandblasted Platinum. So you pay for the workmanship, material costs and time consumed in each piece.
