Rolex Watches 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.

An Ultimate Guide to Rolex Prices

Rolex Submariner

The classic Rolex Submariner was the first wristwatch that divers could take to a depth of 100 meters (330 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.

Rolex Submariner Features

The unidirectional rotatable bezel was first seen in the Rolex Submariner, which is an essential tool to count divers' time underwater with precision. The large and clear luminescent hour markets, together with the Chromalight display in this bezel watch are also important elements.

These enhance readability and allow divers to have a clear reading of time while diving in low-light conditions. This iconic bezel and dial design have now become not only a true diving watch but also an identity and a must-have piece for watch collectors.

How much does Rolex Submariner cost in Hong Kong?

The Rolex Submariner price in Hong Kong ranges from HK$59,772 (US$7,692) to HK$103,579 (US$13,337). Stainless steel, yellow gold, and white gold are available.

Rolex Sky-Dweller

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.

Rolex Sky-Dweller Features

Compared to the Submariner, the Sea-Dweller features water resistance for up to 4,000 feet (1,220 metres). It's an annual calendar, dual time-zone watch in which the (screw-down) crown can set all indications. The unique feature of the Sky-Dweller is the "Ring Command" rotating bezel, whose position determines the function of the crown. The crown has two positions; unscrew it and pull it out the first, and it can be used to hand-wind the movement.

Rolex Datejust

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 both 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.

Rolex Datejust Features

The Datejust was the first self-winding waterproof chronometer wristwatch to display the date in a window at 3 o’clock on the dial-hence its name. The Cyclops lens enhances the date aperture, magnifying the date display by two and a half times for easy reading. It is one of the most distinctive Rolex features, and one of the most recognizable. The screw-down winding crown and the case with the screw-down back form the core of the Oyster. The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology. First introduced in the late 1930s, this particularly robust and comfortable metal bracelet with its broad, flat three-piece links remains a universal bracelet in the Oyster collection.

How much does the Rolex Datejust cost in Hong Kong?

The Rolex Datejust price in Hong Kong ranges from HK$107,000 (US$13,760) to HK$132,027 (US$17,000). 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 at 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.

Where is Rolex cheapest in the world?

One of the countries which are known for being one of the cheapest countries to buy luxury Rolex watches is in Switzerland.

What can I buy instead of Rolex?

Over the past decades, Rolex watches have gained an exorbitant reputation as the ultimate sign of success. This has, in turn, made them much more difficult to buy, and even less likely to be found at a reasonable price. As a result, countless watch collectors are now being forced to look into other watches, whether due to the inflated pre-owned prices or to the scarcity of the most popular models. Here are some of the alternatives to Rolex models:

  • Grand Seiko Sport Collection SBGA229 (Alternative to Submariner)
  • Tudor Heritage Ranger Ref. M79910 (Alternative to Explorer)
  • TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 7 GMT Ref. WAY201F.BA0927 (Alternative to GMT-Master II Alternative)
  • Longines Record Automatic Chronometer Ref. L28214116 (Alternative to Datejust)
  • Zenith Chronomaster El Primero Ref. 03.2040.400/69.M2040 (Alternative to Daytona)

What is the best Rolex to buy?

Although most people will associate Rolex with Switzerland like the majority of major watch manufacturers, the brand was actually founded in London, England, in 1905. Since their humble beginnings, Rolex has led from the front in terms of design and innovation. Because of their luxury and high-end nature, and the fact they’re assembled by hand, means Rolex watches are often found in limited supply. On top of this, the only way of ensuring you get an authentic piece is to buy from an official Rolex retailer. If there’s a particular model you’re after, it is recommended to scout out your retailer of choice, build up a relationship and get your order in as soon as possible. Here are the top 5 Rolex watches that you should have in your collection:

  • Submariner 116610
  • Pepsi GMT-Master II
  • Daytona Ref. 116500
  • Rolex Skydweller with Blue Dial
  • Vintage Daytona Gold 6241 Paul Newman
