Sell Your Rolex Datejust Watches in Chesapeake

Launched by Rolex in 1945, Rolex Datejust watches were the first self-winding chronometer wristwatch to also feature a date display on the dial. Since the first Datejust was released, Rolex has released many additional models to the lineup, too. New versions of the Datejust come in a variety of styles. For example, you can buy these Rolex models in a variety of different sizes; in fact, case sizes for Rolex Datejust models range from 28mm to 41mm. You can also purchase the Rolex Datejust in your choice of stainless steel, two-tone gold, or solid white gold, yellow gold, or Everose gold. Whether you have one of the vintage models or a new Datejust watch and are interested in selling it, Greenbrier Pawn would be more than happy to help! After all, we pay cash for Rolex Datejust watches, as well as other watches from Rolex, too.


Sell Your Rolex Datejust Watch in Chesapeake

If you have been contemplating selling your Rolex Datejust watch sometime soon, you might be curious about where you can sell your watch in the Chesapeake area. There are online buyers or individuals you can sell to, but if you want to sell your watch, we recommend selling to a Rolex buyer like Greenbrier Pawn.


Selling your Rolex Datejust watch is a simple and pleasant experience at Greenbrier Pawn. Here's why you should consider selling to us instead of using another method to sell your timepiece:

●      We pay top dollar every time we buy a Rolex Datejust. Because of our immense experience and the decades we have spent in the luxury watch industry, we can accurately value your watch and pay you what you deserve!

●      You don't have to worry about whether or not you will be able to find someone who wants to buy your watch, because we're always interested!

●      There are no sketchy meetups with strangers you've met on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist! You can feel safe and secure when selling your Rolex watch to us.

●      If you sell your Rolex to an online buyer, you have to send the watch to the buyer through the mail or with a shipping service like UPS or FedEx. There is the potential that your watch could be lost or damaged when it's shipped. You simply don't have to worry about this type of thing if you just bring your watch to Greenbrier Pawn to make the sale.


What is the History of the Rolex Datejust?

Released in celebration of Rolex's 40th anniversary year, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust was released with reference number 4467 in 1945. It was released with a genuine Rolex signature feature, its waterproof Oyster case, which was first released in 1926 and provides superior waterproofness of the watch. Unlike the Rolex Submariner, the Rolex Datejust wasn't necessarily made for divers or others who spend a lot of time in the water. However, you can still enjoy water resistance up to 100 meters, which is 330 feet.


The original version of the Rolex Datejust was released solely in 18K yellow gold. With fluting of the Oyster bezel and a brand new Jubilee bracelet, it had the distinctive face of a Rolex watch and became one of the prominent pillars of the Oyster collection.


Naturally, Rolex didn't stop with their original model of the Rolex Datejust. Because Rolex holds its products to such high standards, they made some improvements to the movement of the original design. In earlier models, there was a brief delay before the date would change when the watch struck midnight. With its new calendar system, the date in the date window changed instantly, beginning with models made in 1955.


Now, you can purchase the Datejust from both official Rolex jewelers and in the aftermarket with your choice of two bracelets. Now, in addition to the original Jubilee bracelet, you can purchase the Datejust with an Oyster bracelet, if that is what you prefer.


The original Datejust had a 36mm case size. Since this classic watch was still popular in the early 2000s, Rolex decided to make even more changes to the elegant design of their Datejust. Because of a demand for 40+ mm models, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II was released in 2009 with a 41mm case.


Major changes and a fresh energy hit the scene in 2016, while Rolex still focused on providing exceptional quality in its Datejust collection. Finally, various colors were available. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 became available, and it was designed and made to the highest standards. Suddenly, you could purchase a two-tone, stainless steel, or yellow gold Datejust. For those who wanted a splash of colour, the Everose gold option was released, which is Rolex's version of rose gold. Although this model still features a fluted bezel, the bezel is a bit thinner than on the Datejust II.


Perhaps what is most notable about the 2016 version of the Rolex Datejust is the fact that its movement system was completely changed. Formerly, Datejust watches featured the Caliber 3135 movement. This was actually Rolex's most successful and longest running movement across its entire lineup. The Caliber 3235 replaced it, and it actually replaced approximately 90% of the parts that could be found in the Caliber 3135 movement.


Most Noteworthy Versions of the Datejust

Every Rolex Datejust is a special watch. After all, it was the world's first watch to feature the date on the dial, which later became a trend among many watchmakers. Some models are a bit more noteworthy than others, though.


Ronald Reagan was photographed often with his Rolex Datejust, which he used for everyday wear. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Joe Biden are other presidents who have worn a Rolex Datejust. Martin Luther King, Jr. often wore a Datejust watch. Additionally, Winston Churchill was actually gifted a Datejust watch by the man who founded Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf.


Although Paul Newman was most commonly known to wear a Rolex Daytona watch, he was filmed wearing a stainless steel Datejust watch in the movie The Color of Money. Christian Bale wore a Rolex Datejust in American Psycho. In the movie Frantic, Harrison Ford wore a Datejust. The design of the Datejust that he wore featured a 36 mm case, white Roman numerals on the Rolex dial, and a stainless steel Jubilee bracelet.

Tips for Selling Your Rolex Datejust or Rolex Datejust II in Chesapeake

It doesn't get much easier than selling to Greenbrier Pawn when you want to sell your Rolex Datejust. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call and ask us. These are a few tips that can help you if you're ready to sell your Datejust or Datejust II.


Come Prepared With Your ID

To be compliant with Virginia laws for pawnbrokers, and for identification purposes, we will need to see your driver's license, state ID, or other government-issued ID when you come in to sell your watch. Make sure you bring it so we can buy your watch on the spot, without any delays.


Bring Along the "Extras"

If you don't have the original box or paperwork that you received when you first purchased your watch, this will not prevent you from selling to us. However, if you do have these things, bring them so we can make you a higher offer! This includes everything from the box that your watch came in to your original certificate.


Understand How Your Watch Will Be Valued

Naturally, we are purchasing your Rolex Datejust with the intention of reselling it in our pawn shop and jewelry store. Therefore, we'll have to pay you a little less than what we will eventually resell it for. However, we will handle the cleaning, repairs, and other things that will need to be done to get the watch ready to be sold.


We also have to consider just how much we will be able to sell the watch for before making you an offer. All Rolex Datejust watches have value, but some are in higher demand than others. Additionally, the condition of your watch will impact how much we have to spend on repairs before we can sell it. Rest assured, we will make you a fair offer. You also are not obligated to sell your watch to us just because we take a look at it. We'll make you an offer for free!
