I sold a broken Rolex Explorer II that was a keepsake from my mother

My mother had bought me a Rolex Explorer II as a coming-of-age present a long time ago, but I accidentally broke the glass, and so I hid it away without telling her. One time I forgot something and had to ask her to deliver it to my office, and that was when she found the broken watch lying in my room. I explained that I couldn’t bring myself to tell her that I had broken something so expensive, but she laughed and said, “It’s alright! All things break someday.” Then she said there was no point holding on to it and suggested that I sell it at Jewel Cafe. She had heard that the place accepts broken items, and she herself had once sold unwanted jewelry from her mother for a good price there. So I brought the watch to the store and asked the staff, "Can I sell my broken Explorer II here?" She smiled and replied that I was most welcome to do so. Even though the watch was broken and had no accessories, I got an astonishing amount of money for it, so I’m thinking of buying my mother a present. It seems that the shop also buys other watches apart from the Explorer II, so I will probably bring some to sell in the future.

I sold an Explorer II

I bought an Explorer II about 10 years ago, but since I can’t wear it at work, I didn’t have much opportunity to take it out and so just put it aside. Then I found an article in a Jewel Cafe flyer about selling Explorer II watches. It was my first time going to a buyback store, but the spotless storefront and cheerful staff made the place seem approachable and gave me a very good impression. The staff knew a lot about watches and so we had a lively conversation. At any rate, I was offered a better price for the Explorer II than I had expected. Since I wasn’t using the watch, I immediately decided to sell it. I would love to visit the store again.

I was able to sell a broken Explorer II

I was able to sell my Explorer II that had a broken glass. I had knocked it due to my own carelessness and then stored it away in the closet for years. I had given up on selling it since it was damaged, but then I heard from the store that they were buying broken Explorer II watches, so I asked for an appraisal. I still had all the accessories including the spare links, guarantee card and box, which bumped up the offer price. I am very satisfied because I was able to sell it for a better price than I had expected.

I sold the Rolex Explorer II that I had lovingly worn for 8 years

I managed to sell my Rolex Explorer II. It was a present from my grandfather to celebrate my first job, and I had lovingly worn it for 8 years. But now that I am getting married, I decided to sell it to help cover the wedding expenses. I had visited Jewel Cafe before, so I decided to go there again. The watch had some minor scratches because I liked it so much that I wore it every day, but I was still able to get a high price for it.

I had my beloved Explorer II appraised

I have always loved Rolex watches and have worn various models in succession by selling the previous one. I loved the Explorer II so much that I had it serviced multiple times, and I wore it with great care over a fairly long period of time. As a result, I got very attached to it and was torn about parting with it. However, as I had already found the model that I wanted to buy next, I finally decided to get my Explorer II appraised. I read good reviews about Jewel Cafe, and when I actually went there, the atmosphere of the store and the staff were very pleasant, so I was able to get my Explorer II appraised with peace of mind. I had worn it quite a lot so there were some noticeable scratches, but I am satisfied with the amount I received for it.

I can’t believe my grandfather's Explorer II sold for that much…

I received a Rolex Explorer II from my grandfather, but I wasn’t sure what to do with it because as a woman I couldn’t really wear a men’s watch. I have no interest in watches, so I had no idea that a Rolex Explorer II could fetch such a high price. A friend of mine told me that she had sold a watch at Jewel Cafe before, and encouraged me to try it out saying, “Rather than just leave it be, why not get it appraised at least?” So I called a nearby store to inquire. I was nervous even over the phone, but the female staff managed to soothe my nerves and make me feel a little more at ease. I quickly made my way to the store, which had a very homey feel. All the staff greeted me cheerfully, and we chatted about the memories I had with my grandfather. They also talked a bit about themselves, and in no time the appraisal was over. Even though the watch was an old model and had some scratches, I was able to get a high price for it. Everything was a first for me and I was really nervous, but I am glad I went to Jewel Cafe. I would love to go there again if I have anything else to sell.

I was able to sell my Rolex Explorer II with peace of mind!

I had a Rolex Explorer II that I bought a long time ago, and it had just been sleeping at the back of a drawer. But when I saw a flyer about high value purchases from Jewel Cafe, I knew that the market value for Explorer II was good and that now was the time to sell it. It was my first time going to a buyback store for an appraisal so I was anxious about many things, but the female staff’s bright smile and attentive service soon eased my fears. During the appraisal, we had a great time reminiscing about the time I bought my Explorer II, and I felt completely at ease. She explained to me in detail about the appraisal value, and I was able to sell the watch to my satisfaction.

I sold the Rolex Explorer II that my father left behind

My father passed away recently and as I was gathering up his belongings, I found the Rolex Explorer II that he used to wear. My mother encouraged me to take it, but I like the Apple Watch and honestly have no interest in Rolexes. When my father was alive, he had already talked about leaving the Rolex Explorer II to me, but I found it hard to say that I didn’t want it, so I just responded in an offhand manner. This time I told my mother frankly that I intended to sell it to pay for my son’s school fees, to which she quickly gave permission. I had already inquired about selling a Rolex Explorer II while out shopping a while back and had received a very attentive response from the staff at Jewel Cafe, so I now brought it to the store. I’m so glad to be able to sell it for a higher price than I expected!

Ways to sell Rolex Explorer II
at a higher price

How to Sell Rolex Explorer II 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.

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 II's trivia
of the week

About the purchase of Explorer II 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.
