Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Z Blue (Electric Blue) Second-Hand Market
Production perion: 2014 till present
When the Milgauss series, which was once discontinued in the past, returned to the world in 2007, the classic style “116400GV” also came back with a brand-new image. The new color “Z Blue (Electric Blue)” of 116400GV was born in 2014.
It is the latest watch in the Milgauss series, with a rare electric blue dial, making it more popular in the market than other watches in the Milgauss series.
The market for Milgauss 116400GV Z Blue has always been quite stable. At the end of 2017, when the market prices of other watches changed drastically like a roller coaster, its market was almost unchanged. Also, because its market conditions are too stable, it may not be a suitable model for investment, but from another perspective, it is because the price is stable, so it has the advantage of being able to sell at a good price at any time.
However, recently there has been news that Rolex is about to release a new series of Milgauss, making the market for this watch rise a lot in January 2020. The negative impact of the new COVID on the famous watch market does not seem to affect this watch. After entering October, its market continues to climb in the high-level zone.
In the future, if Rolex does release a new model of the Milgauss series, I believe the market for this watch will rise even further. If you have a Milgauss watch on hand, be sure to pay attention to the price movement of this series.
Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Black Dial Market Demand
Production period: 2007 till present
“116400GV Black” was the leading style of the Milgauss series after its re-listing in 2007, and it is a symbol of the Milgauss series. At that time, it caused an explosive craze as soon as it went public, and some people even suggested that the watch sold at a very high price beyond the price.
Although after the Lehman Brothers incident, the market for 116400GV Black fell sharply, and the price plummeted in a short period, it still gradually recovered. By October 2020, the purchase price even set a new record in the past.
116500LV Black has maintained a very stable price until 2017. However, its price has shown a rapid upward trend since 2018. It is due to the increase in the overall demand for Rolex and the impact of the exchange rate. This watch is also the same as the electric blue. It estimates that its market will undergo drastic changes due to the release of new designs. It is a watch that must continue to be paid attention to in the future.
Rolex Milgauss 116400 White Dial Market Demand
Production period: 2007 till 2015
116400 combines the 1st generation lightning-bolt second hand of the series and the 2nd generation smooth bezel with a striped hour marker design. Before the production stopped in 2015, like the 116400GV, it was one of the two watches that maintained the popularity of the Milgauss series. 116400 has black and white dial colors to choose from, but no matter which one, there is not much difference in the transaction and purchase price in the market.
Its market has been flat since 2013, and it didn’t start to rise until it stopped production in 2015, and it reached a high point in 2018.
After entering 2019, its market price has gradually stabilized. However, starting from the second half of the year, the market has increased all the way. By January 2020, it has broken through the previous high price records.
Although the market has declined slightly due to the impact of the new COVID, the price has begun to stabilize recently, so it is still time to sell this watch. Compared with the market situation in 2013, its price has almost doubled, which can be said to be quite amazed.
Rolex Milgauss 114600 Black Dial Market Demand / Price
Production period: 2007 till 2015
The 116400 black dial adopts a matte mellow black surface, which contrasts with the bright orange lightning hand. It is a modern and individual watch. After this watch discontinues, the price slowly rose.
116400 is the same price trend whether it is black or white. After 2019, the market increases in purchase prices are almost the same.
The rumor about releasing a new black dial should be the main factor affecting the current price trend. Its market is the same as the white dial, which is still rising steadily. But what is different is that the overall market price for the black dial seems to be relatively flat, and the upward trend is not as strong as that of the white.
