This Is Why Rolex Watches Are So Expensive
Rolex watches are some of the most sought-after timepieces in the world. Last year, a vintage Rolex Daytona worn by Paul Newman was sold at auction for $17.8 million. Cara Barrett, editor at Hodinkee, fills us in on why Rolex’s are so pricey.
Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more.
Following is a transcript of the video:
Cara Barrett: There is a rumor that in order for a Rolex to actually leave the factory or be a Rolex design it has be to recognizable from 20 feet away.
Hi, I’m Cara Barrett, editor at Hodinkee, the leading online watch publication. Rolex is one of the few brands, if not the only brand that has a very specific aesthetic. They are sporty, they are active, they are tool watches that’s kind of their main DNA.
In the 50’s they came out with the Submariner, the Explorer, the Milgauss, the GMT and they were all watches that were designed and made to be used as tools. And so that’s their bread and butter and it still is today. It kind of evolved into a luxury brand later in life which now is what they’re known for. So that’s kind of the interesting thing about them is they initially were tool watches which have now become luxury. Rolex is kind of one of those brands that sits on the lower end of the spectrum as far as luxury watches are concerned.
The Submariner’s $8,000. The entry-level watch at Rolex is $5,000 with the Oyster Perpetual. Their three qualities are self-winding, waterproof and precision. And they really focus on quality. It takes one year to make a Rolex. They go through extensive testing. The accuracy, the chronometer, the timing, it’s all about telling the right time, keeping the right time. They also have extensive service work after, so if you ever have a problem with your Rolex, you can take it to them and they’ll fix it.
The clasp is opened and closed a thousand times before it leaves so you know that when you get it, it’s not gonna break. The whole point of a Rolex is you buy one now, it will last you for 20 years if you take care of it. It will last you for 100 if you really take care of it. That’s ultimately why they’re so expensive because you’re buying something that will last you a lifetime presumably. And something that you can pass down to other generations as well.
In the collectors’ world, there’s the vintage Rolex market. And there’s a whole underground of different nuances and you know there’s a GMT with a matte dial, a GMT with a gilt dial and there are all these tiny little details that change and they make a watch more or less valuable.
There’s the Paul Newman Daytona which sold for $17.8 million last fall and that’s the most expensive Rolex that’s ever sold at auction. The Paul Newman Daytona is a really good example where they came out with a Daytona back in the 70s and they put these exotic dials on them and they couldn’t sell them. And now they’re the most collectible watches on the vintage market.
No one knows how many Rolexes are produced per year, no one knows how many Rolexes are produced per model. But there are specific ones, like the Rainbow Daytona that came out this year, rumored to have X amount made, but very small quantities. You don’t ever know exactly what the number is, but you do know that there aren’t that many. And they’re hard to get.
One of the best things about Rolex is anyone can wear any of them. They’re very unisex and I think that that’s refreshing ’cause a lot of times brands put a lot of diamonds on watches and kind of brand it as a woman’s watch. Whereas Rolex does the same thing, but it’s kind of unisex. I wear a lot of men’s Rolex. But the ladies Datejust is actually, in two-tone, is actually the most sold Rolex model of all time. Which is a really fun fact.

15 Things You Didn’t Know The Purpose Of!
Top things you didn’t know the purpose of! These are the everyday items and things you didn’t know the use for!
#14. “Pen Cap”– You have definitely noticed the tiny hole in the top of a cap and may have used it to try and make a whistle or pretended it was a tiny spyglass. Most people believe this hole has something to do with preventing a pen from drying-out but this is not the case. The hole in the pen cap actually serves as a safety feature. In the event that a small child swallows one, the hole allows air to pass through and reduces the risk of suffocation.
#13. “Measuring Tape Tools”– The modern measuring tape machine is a handy invention that most construction workers and contractors can’t live without, but even some of the most skilled workers might not know it has two incredible yet simple features. First there is the serrated edge on the metal end of the tape. This was put into the design so that if you desired you could put a minor scratch or indentation into the surface you are measuring, in order to give you a marker to make further measurements or designs off of. The other feature is right next to the serrated edge. You may have noticed the small hole that is commonly located in the metal tip. So what’s the purpose of this? Well this is so that if you are measuring something from a point where a nail or screw is you can hook the tape onto the nail and hold the tape in place.
#12. “The Quarter’s Edge”– You probably have spied the hundreds of tiny grooves that mark the outside edge of a quarter but not thought twice about it having a purpose. But these tiny ridges actually once served an important function and no it’s not just so magician’s can get a better grip during coin tricks. Up until recently, historically speaking, the cost of the metals in a coin reflected the coins value so many people took to shaving the edges off of the coins and then used the rest of the coin to purchase items as if the coin still had full value. They would then save up their shavings and melted them together to create new coins or just sell the chunks. In order to combat this, coin minters started putting these ridges on their coins so that retailers could tell whether the coins had been shaved. This practice, though not necessary today, is carried on for the sake of tradition and aesthetic. So why don’t nickels have them? Because no one cares about nickels.

Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world…yet
Graphene is a form of carbon that could bring us bulletproof armor and space elevators, improve medicine, and make the internet run faster — some day. For the past 15 years, consumers have been hearing about this wonder material and all the ways it could change everything. Is it really almost here, or is it another promise that is perpetually just one more breakthrough away?
