I was able to sell my Explorer

I brought in an Explorer that my grandfather purchased 20 years ago. He loves Rolex watches, especially the simplicity of the Explorer, which he had dreamed of wearing. But these days he doesn't wear it at all and just has it stowed away. He saw a flyer about selling Explorers at a high price and said that now was the right time to sell it, so I brought it to the nearest Jewel Cafe. I was worried because all the accessories like the box and case had been thrown away, plus the watch hadn’t been serviced recently, but I was able to get a higher price than I had expected because of their campaign to purchase more Explorers, and for that I am very grateful.

I felt comfortable selling my Explorer!

Due to various circumstances I found myself in need of cash, so I thought of selling the Explorer which I had bought impulsively about 20 years ago under the influence of a TV drama I had seen. A friend recommended Jewel Cafe to me. The female staff at the store cheerfully welcomed me, and we had a very lively conversation about the TV drama that had influenced me. I was very reluctant to part with my Explorer because it is the watch worn by a celebrity that I admire very much, but the staff offered me great emotional support until I was comfortable with selling it. Thank you! Because of such excellent service, I will definitely come again in the future. Someday I will buy myself another Explorer!

I sold the Explorer that my grandfather gifted me a long time ago for an unbelievable amount of money!

I was able to sell my Explorer. My grandfather had given it to me as a present so I wore it for a while, but I’m not really into watches and recently I haven't been wearing it at all. While shopping at International Plaza, I saw a signboard from Jewel Cafe saying that they would "buy even broken Rolexes". At first I only asked out of curiosity, "I have an Explorer, is it OK even if it's broken?” I received such a warm response that I brought it in another day. They offered me such an unbelievable price that I decided to sell it even though it was a gift from my grandfather.

I went to sell my Explorer

I brought in a Ref.14270 Explorer. I was lucky enough to be able to buy the new version, so I brought in my old one for appraisal as a form of trade-in. The appraiser told me that Explorers have been fetching a premium these days, and she also explained about rare models. Although my Explorer isn’t a rare model, I am satisfied with the price. I was able to sell it at a higher price than what I paid for it, so thank you very much! I think I sold it at a good time. By the way, I even received a rebate of $200 for booking the appointment online.

I came to sell my Explorer

I brought the Explorer that I had worn before I got married. I haven't had an occasion to wear it ever since having children, so it has just been stored away for years. As I have no plans to give it to anyone or wear it myself, I finally decided to sell it. Since I was selling it, I wanted to get a good price for it. So I went round to several stores, but Jewel Cafe was the one who conducted the appraisal and consultation with the greatest care. They offered me a high price even though it was an old Explorer. I was worried about the wait because my child was restless, but the other staff kept him company and I was able to proceed with peace of mind.

I sold a Rolex Explorer that was about 15 years old

I was able to sell my Rolex Explorer. I bought it about 15 years ago with the intention of wearing it for life, but maintenance costs such as servicing are really high, and recently I find my smartphone good enough for telling the time. I kept the watch in my wardrobe for a while but felt that it would only deteriorate if I just left it there. I didn’t want my Explorer to go to waste, so I decided to sell it. I went to Jewel Cafe because I have seen their flyers multiple times. Upon appraisal, I was shocked to find that my Explorer was worth more than I had expected. Thank you so much!

I got my strapless Explorer appraised

When my family was cleaning out my grandfather's house, we found a Rolex Explorer that was missing its straps. My father vaguely remembered my grandfather wearing such a watch, but the rest of the family wasn’t even aware that it existed. I didn't know if it was genuine, plus it had missing parts, so I was embarrassed to get it appraised. But my mother reminded me of the flyer from Jewel Cafe about accepting even broken Explorers, so I brought it to the store. The female staff there greeted me cheerfully. When I talked about how I was thinking of throwing it away, she said, "Even if it's broken, it's still an Explorer! It would be a great shame to throw it away. If you have any doubts about your unwanted items, please bring them to us. After all, the appraisal is free of charge.” I was relieved to hear her kind words, and if I find anything else, I will definitely bring it to Jewel Cafe.

I was able to sell a Rolex Explorer

I first bought an Explorer about 10 years ago. I really liked it so I wore it around, but the dial broke and in tears I locked it up at home. It was quite expensive when I bought it, but I was curious if I could still sell it even though the dial was broken, so I brought it in to Jewel Cafe. The female staff there greeted me cheerfully. She was very courteous as she examined my Explorer in front of me. The appraisal value was higher than I expected, and she also explained many things to me about how it was broken and hadn’t been serviced. I am satisfied with the purchase price, and I will visit them again if I have anything else to sell.

at a higher price

How to Sell Rolex Explorer at a High Price〈 1 〉

Sell your Rolex as soon as possible if you have decided that you won’t be using it

The price of a Rolex varies depending on the model, but it can also fluctuate depending on the production year and reference number. For example, popular models with a relatively newer year and reference number can fetch a higher market price. Also, since demand tends to vary depending on the model, we recommend that you sell your Rolex as soon as you have decided that you will not be using it.

How to Sell Rolex Explorer at a High Price〈 2 〉

Sell your Rolex with its warranty card and accessories for a higher price

Be sure to keep the warranty card, box, spare parts, and instruction manual that came with your Rolex when you purchased it. Without the warranty card, you may not be able to receive an authorized service or repair. Therefore, the purchase price of a Rolex will vary greatly depending on whether it has a warranty card. In addition, if the watch does not come with spare links, this limits its range of adjustable sizes, which may result in a lower price. That’s why it is advisable to keep all accessories carefully without throwing them away.

Remove the dirt from your Rolex and keep it clean to sell it at a higher price

The key to increasing the appraisal value of a Rolex is to clean it as much as possible beforehand. Even a simple cleaning at home, such as wiping the glass surface or removing dirt from the crevices of the strap, can impact the appraisal value. If your Rolex has not been serviced for a long time, it is a good idea to just bring it in as is. Of course, a watch that has been serviced will fetch a higher price, but Rolexes can be expensive to repair and it may take many months. Considering the downsides, it is recommended to bring in the watch without getting it serviced.

Rolex Explorer's trivia
of the week

About the purchase of Explorer watches

The history of Rolex begins in London. It is said that there are currently some 600 Swiss watchmaking companies, many of which were established more than 100 years ago. However, only a handful of these have maintained operations uninterrupted to the present day. One such company is Rolex, whose founder Hans Wilsdorf was born in Bavaria, Germany in 1881. At the tender age of 12, he lost both his parents, dropped out of school, and began working for Cuno Korten, a Swiss watchmaker in La Chaux-de-Fonds. There, he was tasked with the export of English watches, which allowed him to develop his business acumen from a young age. In 1903, he moved to London at the age of 22, and two years later in 1905, he founded Wilsdorf & Davis, the predecessor of Rolex. Five years later, in search of "a creative and easily-pronounceable word", he renamed the company to the Rolex brand which we all know today. In 1910, he entered into a partnership involving watch movements with Aegler, a Swiss company skilled in the manufacture of precision instruments, and obtained the highest level of certification from the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC). In 1914, Rolex was awarded the highest recognition from the Kew Observatory. Hans Wilsdorf's next goal was to develop a sturdy case capable of protecting the watch’s movement from dust and moisture, so in 1926, in cooperation with Oyster Watch Co., he developed and patented a case made of hollowed-out metal and a screw-in crown. Thus the Rolex Oyster was born, Rolex’s trademark mechanism that remains to this day. A certain legendary event made the Rolex Oyster famous across the world: in 1927, a stenographer from London by the name of Mercedes Gleitze achieved the amazing feat of swimming across the Strait of Dover in 15 hours and 15 minutes, and she did so while wearing a Rolex Oyster on her wrist. The fact that the Rolex was able to withstand such extreme conditions proved the incredible water resistance of the Oyster case, which in turn prompted the accelerated development of waterproof watches among other manufacturers. The success of the Rolex Oyster made a name for Rolex worldwide for its watchmaking technology, and the company next turned its attention towards developing a self-winding watch. In 1931, Rolex produced the very first wristwatch to feature a 360-degree full-rotation self-winding mechanism, thereby overcoming the biggest issue with automatic winding up to that point, which was the poor efficiency of the winding mechanism. This technology dramatically improved the winding efficiency, further augmenting Rolex's innovative capabilities. The integration of this mechanism of perpetual movement into the prized Rolex Oyster produced the Oyster Perpetual, fondly nicknamed "the Bubbleback" in the antique market today because the rotor for winding the mainspring is positioned over the movement, causing the watch to be unusually thick as the back was rounded like a bubble to accommodate the rotor. In 1945, another revolutionary invention was added to the Oyster Perpetual: the Datejust. As the name suggests, the date display automatically rolls forward each day at midnight, which was a groundbreaking mechanism at the time. These three major inventions — the Oyster case of 1926, the Perpetual mechanism of 1931, and the Datejust mechanism of 1945 — mark the perfection of Rolex's practical watch design.
