Answered By: Bruce Diaz Date: created: Mar 27 2022

So in short, yes, a rolex can be worth it. Remember its not an investment. If you want your $9000 to grow steadily in value then you are far better off finding some good long term growth shares with healthy dividend returns etc. Rolex is not an appreciating asset unless you are buying a rare antique.

What makes Rolex so special

Answered By: Harry Hill Date: created: Jun 11 2022

Rolex had to replace most of their steel working machines and tools to deal with 904L steel. It made sense for them because of the amount of watches they produce, and because they make all their parts in-house. The benefit is obvious once you handle any steel Rolex watch.
