We Buy Rolex Watches in Chesapeake

Rolex is a luxury watch brand with a long and exciting history. 24-year-old Hans Wilsdorf founded a luxury watch company in the early 1900s that would one day become known as Rolex. At some point, he teamed up with his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis. Since then, many people from time zones all over the world have invested in these luxury timepieces. People pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for high-end, popular models like the Paul Newman Daytona. Some are seen as more of a status symbol because they are in more limited supply, but every Rolex watch is a well-crafted timepiece that holds its value and can last for generations. You might know this and may have purchased a Rolex Sea-Dweller DeepSea or Rolex Daytona at some point, but now, you could be thinking about selling your watch. After spending decades in the jewelry and watch industry, we have become highly accustomed to working with customers who want to sell their Rolex watches. If this is something you want to do, let us help!

Sell Your Rolex Watch?

When you first purchased your Rolex Explorer, Rolex Milgauss, or other luxury timepiece, it might have never crossed your mind that you would sell it. However, now, this might actually be something you’re thinking about doing. There are many reasons to sell your watch. Your particular timepiece might not really suit your tastes, so you could be thinking about selling it and buying another watch. For example, you might want to sell your vintage models so you can purchase a model that was produced in recent years. You might just really need cash, and your Rolex might be one of your most valuable possessions. We have a strict privacy policy, and we won’t ask you why you’re selling your watch. The reason doesn’t matter at all! We’ll pay you top dollar regardless.

Best Way to Sell a Rolex Watch?

There are obviously a few different ways you can sell your white gold or yellow gold Rolex watch. You can list your watch on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist, or you can use an online auction site like eBay. You can look for a private buyer on your own by asking family or friends.


There are lots of reasons why these aren’t usually the best options for selling a watch. You may not find anyone who is interested in buying your watch for a while, so it might be months before you’re able to make the sale and have the cash. If you meet up with a stranger who contacts you because of Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist, you have to worry about your personal safety. If you ship your watch by mail, you have to worry about it possibly getting lost or delayed. Plus, selling your pre-owned Rolex watch in these ways might not fetch you the highest price.


A better option is to sell to a pawn shop like Greenbrier Pawn. You don’t have to figure out how to price your watch, and you can get paid in cash on the same day you decide to sell your Rolex timepiece. Pawn shops buy many different Rolex models and other luxury watches. You’ll get paid top dollar for your brand name Rolex, all without any hassle or potentially dangerous situations, and you will not have to worry about your high-end, valuable watch getting lost in the mail, either.

These watches last for many years and can be passed down from generation to generation.

Sometimes, you get what you pay for, and many find that a Rolex is well worth the money.

Sell to the Right Buyer

Who you sell your Rolex watch to will have a big impact on Rolex cost. Some buyers are willing and able to pay more for these watches. Because Rolex watches are in high demand in our stores, and because we like to offer a wide range of Rolex watches for our customers, we buy these watches all the time. When you sell to Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake, you can get paid more for your luxury watch.

Bring Accessories or Paperwork Along

We can check the reference number and otherwise authenticate your Rolex watch ourselves if you only have your watch. However, if you have the original box, certificate, instruction manual, and other things that came with your watch when you first purchased it, bring them along with you, too. We are able to make a higher cash offer for a modern Rolex full set than a watch alone. If your watch was once owned by a notable person and you have authenticity paperwork to prove it, bring it along with you, too. Although these things aren’t necessary, they can help you get more for your watch.

Can You Sell Other Types of Watches?

Even though many people consider Rolex to be the number one luxury watch company in the world, we have been in the watch industry long enough to know that there are a number of other great watch brands and models out there. In addition to coming to us for Rolex watches, our satisfied customers also know that we are a go-to pawn and jewelry shop for watches from Cartier, Omega, Patek Philippe, and more. Bring us your luxury watch of any brand or model so we can make you a top cash offer.


Can You Use a Rolex to Take Out a Cash Loan in Chesapeake?

You might have heard that you can use jewelry or luxury watches as collateral to take out a pawn loan. You might see this as a better solution for putting money in your pocket, since you won’t have to permanently part ways with your Rolex GMT Master II or Rolex Datejust. Luckily, this absolutely is an option, and it’s something we can help you with here at Greenbrier Pawn.


Our loans work like any other pawn loan, which is a regulated industry in Virginia and all 50 states. You bring in your watch, and we’ll take a look at it. We’ll let you know how much you can borrow, based on the value of your Rolex Air King or Rolex Explorer. If you decide to take out the loan, you leave your watch with us, then you leave with the cash and a pawn ticket. Bring the pawn ticket back, repay your loan, and get your watch back. It’s really as simple as it sounds, and loan amounts are often quite high for Rolex watches. We also offer loans on precious metals, jewelry, and more.
