Cash Loans for Rolex Watches in Chesapeake

Whether you have a Rolex Datejust, a Rolex Day-Date (Presidential), or any of the other popular models of Rolex, you could be hoping that you can use your watch to take out a much-needed cash loan. This might be your first watch loan, but you might have heard about others using new and vintage models of Rolex to borrow money. It is an option, and it isn’t hard to do at all. If you want to use your Rolex timepiece to quickly and easily borrow money, Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake is here to help you.

How Can I Get a Cash Loan on a Rolex Watch in Chesapeake?

The average bank or financial institution might not let you use your watch as collateral for a loan, but pawn shops will. For those in the Hampton Roads area, Greenbrier Pawn is a well-known go-to spot for cash loans on luxury watches and more, and we have many satisfied customers. If you’re in Virginia Beach, you can also visit our sister store, Hilltop Pawn. At either shop, we will assist you with taking out a cash loan!

How Do Pawn Loans Work?

Pawn loans are a powerful tool for people who want to borrow money. Many people use pawn loans at various points throughout their lives. If you’ve never used one before and don’t know how they work, you might be a little nervous! Luckily, pawn loans are easy to understand and use, and we’re here to guide you through the whole process.

Visit a Chesapeake Pawn Shop

First, if you want to use your Rolex Air King or Rolex Explorer to take out a cash loan, you’ll need to visit a Chesapeake pawn shop. Greenbrier Pawn in Greenbrier Station is a one-stop shop, and we make loans on Rolex watches six days a week.


If our Virginia Beach location is more convenient for you, you can stop by there, too! Hilltop Pawn is on Laskin Road in Virginia Beach, and we offer all of the same loan services (and more) at that location, too. Like Greenbrier Pawn, Hilltop Pawn is open six days a week, too.

Use Your Rolex Watch as Collateral for a Cash Loan in Chesapeake

Our loans are collateral loans. All this means is that you need to bring in an item of value to back your loan. The amount you will be able to borrow depends on the collateral that you bring. Whether it’s a current model or one of the newer Rolex models, we can grant you a loan. We’ll check the model, reference number, condition, and more, and then, we’ll tell you how much you can borrow. If you have the original certificate, the original box, or other accessories or documents related to your watch, bring them along with you, too; we may be able to grant you a higher cash loan if you have these things. You also have the option to bring in multiple luxury watches or other items of value along with your watch if you want to take out a bigger loan.

Produce Your Government-Issued ID

When granting a loan on your Rolex Datejust or Rolex Day-Date, we will need to see your unexpired, valid government-issued ID. Make sure you bring it with you so you can get your loan without delays! We have a strict privacy policy, so you don’t have to worry about producing your ID to get your loans.

Repay Your Loan

After using one of the top watch brands to take out a loan, you’ll be given a pawn ticket. Take note of the due date and repayment amount. Bring your pawn ticket back to Greenbrier Pawn by the due date to repay your loan and retrieve your watch. If you need more time to pay, it’s no problem! Just stop by to ask for an extension.

Can I Get a Loan on My Rolex With Bad Credit?

Bad credit happens to even the best and most responsible people. If your credit rating isn’t the best because of medical bills, bankruptcy, divorce, or any other reason, you might have found that borrowing money is a whole lot harder now. Most credit card companies and lenders perform credit checks before loaning money, and some of them are pretty strict about who they will lend to.


The good news is that if you have a brand name Rolex watch -- or even other luxury watches or other items of value -- that you don’t have to have good credit at all in order to borrow money. In fact, you don’t even have to have your credit checked at all. Pawn shops like Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake simply don’t perform credit checks. We’ll just loan you the money based on how much your Rolex watch is worth, and we’ll hold on to it, just in case you default on your loan. Even if you do happen to default on your loan, though, you don’t have to worry about it hitting your credit score. This is a good thing when you’re already in the process of rebuilding your credit score.

Why Use My Rolex Watch for a Cash Loan in Chesapeake?

Of course, you should know that you don’t technically have to have a vintage or current model Rolex to borrow money from a pawn shop. Other watch brands, jewelry, and even TVs and computers can be used, too. If you do have a Rolex, though, it might be your best collateral option for a pawn loan.


There are a few reasons for this. For one thing, since the amount that you can borrow on a pawn loan directly correlates with the value of your collateral, it makes sense to bring in something valuable if you want to take out a bigger loan. If you’re like a lot of people, your Rolex watch may be one of your most valuable possessions. Using it will allow you to borrow even more money.


Additionally, since you’ll need to leave your collateral with us until repayment, you’ll want to bring something that you don’t mind going without for a little while. You may not want to give up your wedding ring or the laptop that you use for work this long, but you might not mind using your Rolex, especially if you don’t wear it every day.


Naturally, if you don’t want to use your Rolex to take out a cash loan, you can bring us some other form of collateral. We take all items of value, and if you aren’t sure, you can always stop by or give us a call to ask!


If you’re wondering why Rolex watches can be used for bigger loans, you should consider why these watches are so valuable. People from time zones all over the world are willing to pay top dollar because of the craftsmanship and durability of these watches. Since 24-year-old Hans Wilsdorf -- and later, his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis -- created this luxury brand, they have been known as a symbol of prestige. Rolex’s stainless steel case, the Oyster case, allowed them to create the first waterproof watch. Its powerful tool watches are known for being resistant to different temperatures and different positions, and they are so well-made that people are able to pass them down for multiple generations. There are a wide range of Rolex watches, and yes, some models are considered the most sought-after models and are more valuable. Even the more affordable Rolex watches have value because of their 18K precious metals and superior craftsmanship. From the Paul Newman Daytona to the watch that James Bond wore, Rolex watches are widely known and appreciated by many. Simply put, whether it’s your first watch and one of the vintage models or if it’s a newer Rolex, your watch has value, and it can help you take out a high-value loan.

What Can I Use My Rolex Loan Money For?

If you don’t repay your pawn loan, you don’t have to worry. We won’t call and bother you about your loan, and your credit will not be affected.
