All Major Rolex Models and Price discount in Hong Kong Rolex Authorized Dealers




For many people who keeps on aking me price of Rolex, and there are 500 comment asking the same questions about the current price of Rolex, I had hard time to reply but supported by friends who is working in Rolex AD and Dealers, I still manage to update them with latest price, but due to Swiss France appreciation in 2011, at the same time HK Dollars is pegged with green back. Rolex has adjusted the price 4 times in 2011, and 5 times for Tudor. In So far, Rolex has yet announced the price changes…Good luck!
But It is hard to track the price soon as I can see there will be price changes soon as Rolex did every year, an average of 10-15% increase in the past 10 years, So why not I put a rough estimation on every of the major models…

The Models: Rolex currently produces around a dozen different Oyster Perpetual models. Rolex also has their dress line, Orchid 50-60 and later Cellini. For ladies they make the 23mm Oyster-Perpetual, 26mm Date & Datejust, and 29mm Yacht-Master. In mid-size, you can get the 31mm Datejust or 35mm Yacht-Master (the only sport model offered in a case smaller than 40mm). Lastly there are the gents: 34mm Date & Air-King; 36mm Datejust, Explorer & President; and the 40mm Daytona, Explorer II, GMT-Master-II, Sea-Dweller, Submariner, and Yacht-Master. The new one like Explorer II, Sky-Dweller is made of a larger size of 42mm.
Some models like the gents Datejust currently have about 10 model numbers in production... The numbers help differentiate the different metals and bezels used. Dial colors are not included, so that leaves one with dozens of new Datejust choices... The Sea-Dweller in comparison is offered only in steel, only with a black dial, and only as Ref. 16600

Air-King: The Air-King could be considered the "entry level" model from Rolex. Current models retail for HKD$43,000 with the smooth bezel fitted, with the engine turned bezel, or HKD$49,000 with the White Gold bezel. It is 34mm in diameter and comes with an Oyster bracelet by default. The Air-King does not have a Date. In the 1970s, the Air-King was offered with a date and in gold & steel combinations which was rare! Those two variations likely ceased production since they are redundant next to the Date and Oyster Perpetual models. Rolex Air-King Watches.

Date: The Rolex Date is 34mm like the Air-King, but it obviously includes a date function. Its production began in the late 1950s, around the time the steel Datejust was introduced. Retails range from HKD$45,000 with a smooth bezel and Oyster bracelet to HKD$60,500 with an 18K white gold fluted bezel and diamond markers. The date model was once offered in 3 flavors: steel, 18k yellow & steel, and all 18k yellow gold. It is now only available in steel.

Datejust: The Datejust is the best selling Rolex model on the market, 60% of Rolex model is Datejust and has been for decades. It was first introduced in 1945. The gents model is 36mm in diameter and typically came on a Jubilee bracelet. Rolex seems to have changed their tradition on this and is sending more Datejust models out the door with the Oyster band. Models with smooth bezels are available, but less common. Most have the fluted bezel, which is 18k white gold on the steel model.

The Datejust was only available in gold until 1957 (conveniently a year after the release of the Day-Date which still has never seen a steel model). The steel Datejust was introduced and became an instant success. Rolex soon saw the steel variations selling much quicker than their gold models. Rolex countered this in 1962 when they introduced the gold and steel version..

Ladies Date/Datejust: These two models use the same 26mm case mold and offer the exact same functionality. Rolex discontinued the ladies Date, there was so much overlap in the models that it seemed long overdue. Retails range from HKD$46,600 for the most current 171960 steel Datejust. The more popular Datejust with White gold bezel retails for HKD$49,000. The Gold & Steel models start at HKD$606,00 (179173) and go up to HKD$97,000 for a 179313 with diamond mother of pearl dial and 12 diamond bezel.

Explorer: It was introduced in 1954, and has had one look through-out its life; a black dial with Arabic numbers at 3', 6' and 9', no date, smooth bezel, Oyster bracelet, and a stainless steel 36mm case. Except for the updates that all Rolex watches have received, it remained essentially the same watch. Today the watch retails for HKD$46,600 Rolex has announced an update to a 39mm case for the Explorer.

Explorer II: This model was introduced in the early 70's and was never widely distributed or popular until 1991. The original model was produced until the current model was released in 1985. The Explorer II uses the same movement as the GMT-II models and makes use of a secondary 24-hour hand that rotates once every day. The engraved steel bezel is stationary and was originally designed for speleologists (cave explorers) who can have a hard time determining if it is am or pm. Today its new Explorer II retails for HKD$50,500 and comes with only one choice: a black or a white dial. - Rolex Explorer Watches.

Oyster Perpetual: An odd name for a model considering every Rolex mentioned on this page is also an Oyster Perpetual... By itself, the "Rolex Oyster Perpetual" was basically the same as the smaller 34mm Air-King model. The Current Oyster Perpetual (no-date) is now the same size as the Datejust and comes only in steel or steel with white gold bezel. Rolex has introduced several unusual dials for this model. Retails start at $45,000 for the simplest ladies Oyster Perpetual and $42,000 for the simplest men's Oyster Perpetual. Both come standard with an Oyster bracelet.

Submariner: The Submariner was introduced by Rolex in 1954. The watch comes only on an Oyster bracelet and has a 40mm case. The steel model is only available with a black dial, and is one of the most recognizable Rolexes. Anniversary editions with green bezels can occasionally be found. The Submariner has the common single direction rotating diving bezel with minute markers for the first 15 minutes. The original models until 1958 are often considered "James Bond" models and have some easily recognizable difference. Primarily, they had a smaller crown, no crown guard, and the bezel only had minute markers every 5 minutes. In the late 70s the model 16800 was introduced. It sported the new sapphire crystal and quick-set function. In 1989, the 16610 was introduced with an improved movement and a more secure bezel, that is the most advanced and yet beautiful Submariner so far claimed by most of Submariner Collectors. In 2010, the 116610 was introduced with a ceramic (Cerachrom) bezel and improved “Glidelock” buckle. The Submariner is one the most popular models and comes in 4 styles, $49,900 for steel (no date), HKD$62,100 for steel (with date) for the new Ceramic model, $90,000 for 18k gold and; steel, and HKD$250,850 for the yellow gold model or HKD$263,600 for white gold.

Sea Dweller: The Sea Dweller was introduced in 1971 and discontinued in 2008. It is virtually the same watch as the Submariner. The only real differences are the thicker and heavier steel case, thicker crystal with no cyclops eye, and the helium escape valve useful only to deep divers. The original model was rated for 2000 feet and called the "Rolex Submariner 2000 Sea Dweller". It lost the "Submariner 2000" part of the title in 1973. The current issue, model 16600, is rated to 4000 feet and is sold only in steel. The Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA, model 116660, has replaced the Sea-Dweller model 16600 and retails for HKD$82,500. The DEEPSEA model offers a greater depth rating (to 12,800 feet) along with a thicker, larger case and an improved "Glidelock" buckle

GMT-Master: The 1950s were an exciting decade for Rolex and included the introduction of the classic GMT- Master. It was one of the first watches to utilize a second hour hand to indicate a second time zone. With the simple rotating 24 hour bezel, one could fairly easily tell the time in any time zone. The late 70s saw the introduction of the GMT-Master II which was basically the same, except now the user could easily adjust the 2nd hour hand with the crown in position 2. The steel models are only offered with black dials. The bezels are available in all black, red/ black, or red / blue. GMT's typically come with a Jubilee bracelet installed.

The original GMT-Master (16700) was phased out in the late 90s. The latest serial number Bernard's had for the 16700 was a U#, putting its birthday around 1997. With the flood of new models with a second time zone function from other manufactures, retiring it was a smart move, as most consumers will want to adjust the 2nd hour hand.

The GMT-Master II (16710) was discontinued in 2008 and replaced with the GMT-Master II (116710) The primary difference besides the 3186 caliber movement with Parachrom Bleu hairspring is the ceramic (Cerachrom) bezel. Some late production 16710s have been discovered with the 3186 movement.

The GMT-Master II with green hand retails for $62,100 in steel, HKD$91,500 in steel and gold, and HKD$256,000 for solid gold.

Daytona / Cosmograph: The story of the Rolex Cosmograph could be called the most chaotic of all the Rolex Oyster models. Rolex is keen on creating a winning product. The watch never really got off the ground until 1986 when the market for them exploded and the watches would often sell for double the retail price in Italy. The "Paul Newman" models manufactured around 1967 were and still are the most desirable of the Daytona models fetching prices over HKD$400,000. It retailed for around HKD$25,500 back then In 1989, Rolex replaced he Valjoux workhorse movement with the Zenith El Premiro movement. During the 1990s, the Daytona was the only Rolex model not using a Rolex movement. In 2000 came the newly developed Rolex caliber 4130 with a 72 hour power reserve. The steel 116520 retails at $84,000. Steel and Gold models retail for $113,000 and all 18K yellow gold for $265,000. Steel Daytona's have consistently sold for more than retail since the 1992. The two-tone and gold models do not sell for over retail, unlike their steel counterparts.

Note: Price listed here is rough estimation only, normally we can get 5% discount from Rolex AD in HK on these prices. Special Discount is available for certain model for some VIP.

Dear Sir, is the Submariner 16610LV (green bezel) a good choice or should just stick to the mainstream model. How much premium is fair over the black bezelled one ?

Thank you

HK Snob said...

Dear Yusuf KL,
All depends on your preference, someone likes the Black standard one Ref 116610LN, but I like the green Dial green bezel ref 116610LV at best as this is less, then the Green bezel 16610LV. the Sub Black the last.
Price by right is Standard Black HKD$62,100 less 5% HKD$58,995.
Green Bezel HKD$59,850.
Green Bezel Green Dial HKD$69,600.00

Hi HK Snob,

As I'm new to Rolex and will be getting my first Rolex soon. I wish to get your advice(if you happen to know) on the best country to get Rolex 116234, blue jubilee with diamond dial, jubilee bracelet n 18k white gold bezel.

Reason I ask: I'll be traveling to Germany via London / Frankfurt for business n in nov. I'll b traveling to Dubai. So if any of the place that I'll be traveling is cheap, I shall wait till I'm there. By the way, I could get tax refund as I'm a Malaysian.

If Switzerland or Sweden is cheaper, I don't mind travel to the destination after my business trip while I'm still in Europe.

Thanks in advance for your kind advice.

Hi HK Snob,

HK Snob said...

Hi Love Vs Money
If you hd chance to go Switzerland and or Duibai, you can buy Rolex Which is about 10% cheaper than HK, That is what I learn from Rolex Fans replying me some time ago. One Malaysia who did bought two Rolex Daytona and one Submariner in Switzerland, cheaper that the price in Malaysia and HK.
Try , and let me know if that is really Cheaper or not...

HK Snob said...

Hi There
I need to check 114060 as it would be something between HKD$62,100 and HKD$49,000
That is the price between Submariner Ref 116210 and Ref. 14060M.

But my comment is not worth to buy 114060 unless you realy like that watch without date.

Hi HK Snob, do you think Rolex AD in Hong Kong will raise the official retail price for daytona steel black anytime soon? (as Europe has already done so)

HK Snob said...

Hi B, I have checked that Rolex AD still no news for Price changes.... so now how much price has been increased in EU?
HK Snob

B said...

I was just back from Eastern Europe and official listed price for daytona steel black at Prague is around HKD97000; Vienna HKD93000; Budapest HKD105000. In Hong Kong, is it still HKD87,500? but I think if you are to get that at that price you need to be on the waiting list but who knows when it will be your turn.

B

HK Snob said...

Hi B,
Wow, HKD is one of the lowest, HK is still selling HKD$98,000 net.
It seems that Preque is cheaper than HK, However HK Grey dealer is offering us at HKD$96000- $97000.

Hi HK Snob,

Would like to consult your advice. I'm travelling in Europe now and bought a GMT Master II (100% new, but found out that the price was not higher than HK price only after I bought it) in Germany yesterday. Then, i found a black Daytona in Prague today. As I have got a 16610LV for few years and would like to keep only 2 of them. Which 2 you recommend me to keep please? Any suggestions where I may trade the watch with good price? Thanks a lot for your kind advice!

HK Snob said...

Hi K,
You place s very difficult question to me as this happened to me amny times.

Since you have a Sub for some time, keep it as it is the all time favourite sport watch from Rolex, And you have bought a GMT Master II, Well, I think all depends on your fiancial background, if you can afford, of course get a Daytona.

To sell a GMT master II would lose some money, Well, if you really want to keep two watches amongst three.

To strike a Fiancial Balance, I will keep The Sub and GMT Mast II.

If you really want to upgrade to Daytona Lavel, If I were you , I will trade the Sub with some money for a Daytona (Pre-owned one. At least you cna enjoy a new GMT MASTER II for years.

If you really do not want to miss the boat of buying a Daytona in preque price should be HK$97,000 which is just HKD$1,000 cheaper in HK. if price is Higher than HKD$98,000, you should come and Buy in HK.

This is Watch Lover's trouble... do not know what we should go.

Suggestion 1:
But One thing is always right... Keep calm and Enjoy what you have first and keep the money for a whilst.

Suggestion 2:
Always buy the most adorable one as an upgrade...as each purchase you will spend money, and if you trade in watch with others it loses money too. My point it, don't buy Stainless steel Daytona but a White gold one... keep this as a arm stretched target.

As through my life of watch purchase, we will go through many road of WASTING money... Do buy the best you can and you can e njoy longr period of time.

This is persoanl advice only, final decision is you!!

Congrad, to you have so many models of Rolex. These are all Gresat watches!

Hi, Mr HK Snob, I am in Swiss now. Any advice if I get HK$50,000 budget then which model you will suggest? esp for woman?

HK Snob said...

Hi Siu Yiu Tze Siu

try this Ref, 178274 bkcao

Refe rto this link for picture
http://www.swissluxury.com/rolex-watches-datejust-31mm-steel-fluted-bezel-oyster-bracelet.htm

This is oyster Strap, Black Dial and Arabic number.. price should be about HKD$46,600. This is a very good, sportive, new Face of the Rolex.... See if you can get it there at Swiss, tell me how much you get it.

HK Snob

Siu Yiu Tze Siu said...

Dear Mr HK Snob, thank you very much for your advice. I have shopped around these two days and found a Rolex with green surface, green circle. I forgot the model now, but friends told me that it's a relatively new model after another one model with 'green glass', 綠玻璃. How much is the price in HK (if stock available in HK). Also, I realize that the price in Swiss (after tax refund) is not cheaper than in HK. Someone said that the difference is the production origin - Swiss is all made in Swiss while in HK, the belt, other parts may be manufactured from other countries. Is that true? Hope you can advise as I will leave very soon.

Thank you

Hello HK snob, im travelling to HK end of the year and thinking either to purchase the116710LN or the 116610lv. Seems that 116610lv doesnt come with the 5% discount? is this true?

Hi HK Snob

Do you know how much the Lady Datejust 34 Special Edition in RoseGold and white mother of pearl dial would cost in HK?

In SG its about SGD45k, in Malaysia about SGD43k based on current exchange rates.

Many thanks

Hi Zhahril,
By right Rolex AD will not stop discount and they might say they do not have stock. By now It is hard to get this Ref, 116610LV. Only outside Rolex AD...I will confirm again. HK Snob

HK Snob said...

Mr Chong,
Well, base On today Exrate i CHF =8.3856 HKD. CHF 7,971 is HKD$66,841.61 Which is I can say normal price for a Rolex., In fact the list price is HKD$62,100. you pa extra HKD$4,500 for this rare species is OK...
Street price in HK is about HKD$68,000. Of course some one still can get one at Rolex AD at list price.
To me, I think the deal is Good, What is the Country Code on your Cert.?
HK Snob

chong seng ong said...

Hi, the code is G789744. According from Swiss AD they increase the price by €600 @ this year Aug. last month I went to Macau & local AD said stil no yet increase.

HK Snob said...

That is the Watch S/N number,
Well, I think HK will soon increase the price but due to low economy situtaion, Rolex has not yet implement this too!

Frankly, you may know when you ask the shop, they usually does not able to give you as Submariner, Daytona Stainless steel Black, Ref 116610Lv, 16610LV and GMT master II is the hottest sport Models for Rolex, 4 our of 10 customer is asking this model when they go for Rolex. And the is what they want to keep this for more Important Customers or VIP,.. We can not blame them as this is a world od supply and demand, moreover they need something to maintain a customer relationship. Honesty Other Blogger asked from one big Watch Shop in Central Oxxxx and ChXX the both said no stock. and they migth have to ship ffrom other shop to support, Well timing is important and if you can , tell me when you wil go for that and I try to ask friend of mine to KEEP one for you...

Could you please suggest a store for pre-owneds in the Central area?

Many thanks

Hi, HKSNOB

Do you know anyone selling Blaken Rolex submariner(all black)?

HK Snob said...

Hi G Asian
Yes, but he is not my good friends, We can find it in IFC tower Central, it is in the departure store on third floor if not wrong at IFC. it is very expensive, 2.5X as the nornal price of Submariner.
To me, that is no more Rolex, that is something else already! And with all black, we can not tell whether it is still a good functional watch under the deep sea. I am not too sure as I can not breathe more than 30 seconds under that condition and I am sure I will have struggle going out of water rather than to enjoy the black dial, black case of such Rolex!
I thinlk that will not be an collectible item. It is just for fun if you have extra bucks!
that is a way we put something in a chamber of gas at temperaure of 1380 deg C, and there is a process to coat the thin layer of DLC (Diamond Like Coating) onto the surface of the watch, in fact, the process is tedious and hard to control, and it is not easy to coat it very evenly. Well, that is the cost for make it black.

Hi HK Snob,

Thank you for your informative post!

I am looking to buy my first Rolex watch. I am deciding between SS Sub, SS GMT II and SS Daytona (all black dials). Do you have any recommendations?

In addition, do you think I should wait until the holiday seasons (Christmas and Chinese New Year) are over to make the order? Perhaps there will be better pricing/more stocks?

Many thanks again!

Regards,
Brian

Hi Brian,
usually by end of the year, shops should push for more sales as they need money for many thing like year end bonus and other expenses for staff including Christmas party and annual dinner.
naturally we may be able to get betetr deal on price.
So not wait for next year as who know Rolex will increase price again beforr CNY.
The watch you mention is all good stuff except Daytona black is very hard to get.
