The Best Way to Cap Off a Year: A Rolex for Christmas?

The special people in your life deserve special gifts. It’s no wonder that watches from Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Rolex are more popular than ever around the holidays. Read on to discover the best models for him and her and find out where you can still buy one in time for Christmas.

1. Rolex Submariner

The stainless steel Rolex Submariner with a black bezel is the epitome of pure luxury. It is a timeless, classic watch that exudes elegance. Unfortunately, you won’t find it available at any authorized dealers before Christmas. To avoid long waiting lists and get your hands on one sooner, check out the selection of timepieces available on Chrono24. You can also find older Submariner models on the platform, prices for which begin around $9,000. Just remember, if you plan on gifting someone the most iconic Rolex of them all, you can’t measure its value by its price tag alone.

2. Rolex Yacht-Master II

A two-tone Yacht-Master II with a bright blue ceramic bezel is the perfect gift for anyone who likes a bit of extravagance. The current MSRP for a steel Yacht-Master II is $18,750. However, you can find several pre-owned models on Chrono24 below the list price. According to the Watch Collection tool, prices for the ref. 116680 currently sit around $17,850. So, if your local dealer doesn’t have a new model on offer, you can rescue Christmas by buying one online – and save some money too!

3. Rolex Day-Date

Another icon – and the ultimate classic timepiece – is the Day-Date. It is exclusively available in precious metals, making it the quintessential luxury timepiece. Generally speaking, it is easy to get your hands on a new Rolex Day-Date from an authorized dealer. However, if a new model is beyond your budget (list prices begin just under $39,000 for a 36-mm yellow gold version), you can look into buying a used Day-Date. According to the Chrono24 Watch Collection tool, a classic yellow gold ref. 18038 currently costs around $14,000 on the platform. There is also an even more affordable option out there: the Rolex Datejust. While this model may be a slightly more modest choice, it is no less stylish.

4. Rolex Datejust and Lady-Datejust

The perfect pair for him and her, the Rolex Datejust and Lady Datejust make ideal entry points into the luxurious world of Rolex. The series offers a wide selection of different sizes, dial colors, dial layouts, bands, and bezels for both men and women.

On Chrono24, you can choose the perfect gift from over 75,000 Rolex listings. Plus, our Watch Collection tool offers you a great overview of current prices. Browse from the comfort of your own home, and save yourself some stress this holiday season. End your year on a high note with a Rolex.
