All Major Rolex Watch Model List Price, and Discount at Rolex Authorized Dealer (AD) Hong Kong 2013
Rolex has adjusted the price 4 times in 2011, and 5 times for Tudor. It has been no price adjustment for Rolex and Tudor since Nov 2011!
Still there is no news on new price adjustment in 2013 as of this moment!
Rolex currently produces around a dozen different Oyster Perpetual models. Rolex also has their dress line, Orchid 50-60 and later Cellini. They are not the major model people is looking for.
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, DeepSea replaced the phased out SeaDweller, Submariner, and latest 44mm Stainless Steel Yacht-Master II with a sky high price of $145,300 less 5% discount. The new one like Explorer II, Sky-Dweller is made of a larger size of 42mm. The newer enlarged Date Just II and Day Date II is not seen to be accepted by most of the customers, still the 36mm Size is the main stream.
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 DeepSea in comparison is offered only in steel, only with a black dial, and only as Ref. 116600.
The Air-King could be considered the "entry level" model from Rolex. 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.
Current models retail for Air King Ref 114200 $46,600 with the smooth bezel fitted,
Air King with the engine turned white gold fluted bezel Ref 114234 $60,500.
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.

The Datejust is the best selling Rolex model in 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. Most of the Chinese big spenders buy Two Tone Rolex Date Just 36mm with
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…

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss was introduced in 1956 with model number 6451. The Milgauss was designed as an antimagnetic watch specifically for those who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research labs where electromagnetic fields can cause havoc with the timing of a watch. The current model Milgauss is equipped with amagnetic alloy (Parachrom-Blu) hairspring and movement encased by a Faraday cage. The name Milgauss is derived from the Latin mille, which means one-thousand, and gauss, the unit of a magnetic field. l is so named because it can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss.
In 2007, Rolex brought the Milgauss back after nearly two decades as the model number Ref 116400. There are currently three versions: white dial or black dial with a standard colorless sapphire crystal, and the GV (Glace Verte) or "Anniversary" model, with black dial of a slightly different design and a green-tinted sapphire crystal. The GV is the only Rolex produced with a tinted crystal. Although initially rumored to be a limited edition, the GV version is still produced nearly 3 years later after 2010.
Due to its internal Faraday cage, the Milgauss is thicker than the Submariner, but the same width and weighs 157 grams. The Milgauss is only available in 904L polished stainless steel, an alloy that is extremely resistant to scratches and corrosion. Aside from its resistance to magnetic fields, the Milgauss' most unusual feature is its orange lightning-bolt second hand, a unique feature in the Rolex lineup that was originally introduced with the 6541 Milgauss model.
Ref 116400 Milgauss White Dial or Black dial $55,500
Ref 116400 GV Milgauss Green Glass $59,600
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. Explorer I Ref 214270 39mm stainless steel with Oyster Strap $48,200
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’s new Explorer II Ref 216570 was launched in Nov 2011, new caliber of high accuracy, 42mm stainless steel, it come with Black with Orange Floating Pointing $60,500, White Dial same price.
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.

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 previous 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
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 Ref 116710LN retails for $61,200 in steel. This model was launched in Nov 2011.
Ref 116713LN GMT-master II Two tone, stainless steel and Yellow gold, $91,500

In 2007, Rolex‘s launched the revolutionary regatta chronograph. It is now available in 904L steel for the first time, fitted with a Cerachrom bezel insert in blue ceramic. On the inside of the huge 44mm Oyster case, the Yacht-Master II features an exclusive function developed by Rolex – a countdown mechanism which can be programmed from 1 to 10 minutes and incorporates a mechanical memory, allowing it to be reset to the same countdown duration. Once launched, it can also be synchronized on the fly, enabling it to be adjusted to match the official regatta countdown. The Yacht-Master II is equipped with calibre 4161, a self-winding mechanical regatta chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.
Ref 116680 stainless Steel 44mm, with a solid platinum bezel and was just released in June 2013. $145,300 max less 5% discount only due to its scarcity on new release.
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 the 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 stainless steel Daytona Ref116520 retails now at $87,500 for White Dial and $97,000 for Black Dial
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 1980s. The two-tone and gold models do not sell for over retail, unlike their steel counterparts.

Day Date (DD) The FlagShip of Rolex, I have been talking a lot about this model and I think many more people started crushed on this model, and a lot of HK Rolex collectors are looking for Colourful Vintage Day Date, especially Model Ref 1803 and Ref 18028, which has been introduced to the world as a Classic. As of this moment in time, their price is still low. However as for new watch, so far, there is never a single request on purchase nor price of Day Date, as Firstly I think they are not cheap, and second, those who can buy would not care too much if that is less 5%, less 10% or less 14%.
What are the hot models?
No. 1 Daytona Stainless steel Black Ref 116520, Price is $97,000 net no discount limited to 1-2 Pieces at each Rolex AD a month.
No.2 Submariner Green bezel and green Dial, Ref 116610LV $66,100 net no Discount, 2-3 Pieces a month available at Rolex AD.
No. 3 Submariner Black Dial Ref 116610LN $62,100, about 4 -5 Pieces a month for Rolex AD.
No. 4 DeepSea Ref 116660 $82,500 about 3 pieces a month, due to the high price and giant size, not too many people has the wrist to carry the watch, the demand is much lower than Submariner Ref 116610LN.
So we can buy this watch easily at Rolex AD.
It is hard to tell which model suits you, some young woman wear a giant DeepSea, some men of 6 foot wear an Air King, I think if you feel that is good and meet your budget will be best choice for you!
Price and Discount
Note: Price listed here is rough estimation only, normally walk-in can get 5% discount from Rolex AD in HK on these prices. Some VIP get 8% discount for Submariner, Explorer and GMT-Master, 10% to 14% on other Date just or Solid Gold Watches. We sometimes understands as they buys a lot of watches a year. However, Rolex is mandatory not allowing any Rolex AD to give more than 5% as to control the Brand value of Rolex like other luxury brands Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Cartier and Chanel.
