Why investing in a Rolex is a great idea

You are here

Few brands are so synonymous with consistently providing high-quality products that their name becomes a universally recognised symbol of that same luxury and quality. Rolex is one of these brands. Founded in 1905, the brand has produced timepieces for everyone from Winston Churchill to Sir Edmund Hillary. Today, over 90 percent of Rolex watches are exported from Switzerland to 30 countries around the world, including China, Australia and New Zealand.

Its reputation for combining hard-working performance with timeless good looks is what makes investing in a Rolex from First State Auctions such a great idea.

Many experts agree that the quality of a Rolex remains unsurpassed. These Swiss watches are usually hand assembled by artisans with decades of experience in combining thousands of tiny parts into a functional whole. Some watches can take up to a year to fully assemble.

Why invest in a Rolex from First State Auctions?

There are so many investment platforms available, so why should a person invest in a Rolex from First State Auctions? Well, if you’re looking for an investment that will provide a predictable return, you can’t do better than a Rolex. The Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index measures the value of various luxury investments, and it shows that a watch is one of the least volatile investments you can make. It also shows that the market performance of watches has increased over the past ten years, and is likely to do so in the future.

In addition to providing a predictable long-term return on investment, watches can be used and enjoyed in a way that gold bars, shares, and expensive art cannot. It makes it the perfect item to pass down from generation to generation, and you can be confident that if taken care of, it will continue to look good for decades to come.
