What You Need to Know About Rolex Price Philippines

In 1905, brother-in-laws Alfred Davis and Hans Wilsdorf founded Wilsdorf and Davis in London, England. It wasn’t until 1915 that the company would be registered as Rolex SA because Wilsdorf wanted an easier brand name that everybody can pronounce. Aside from that, the word “Rolex” is an onomatopoeia of the sound of a watch being wound. Since then, Rolex has invented many firsts such as the first waterproof wristwatch in 1926, the first watch with an automatically-changing date in 1945, the first watchmaking company to earn chronometer certification, and many more. Here are some questions about the brand that you might want to read about:

How much is the cost of a Rolex watch?

A typical Rolex in the Philippines ranges from US$7,500 (P382,000) to US8,550 (P432,000). You can order them online on several trusted stores such as Farfetch and Jomashop. One tip for buying Rolex watches online is to always check seller reviews.

How much is the cheapest Rolex watch?

The cheapest Rolex piece you could buy is the Rolex La Californienne Oyster Perpetual 30mm which is US$7,175 or P358,700 from Farfetch. You can also choose a pre-owned piece from Jomashop like the Oyster Perpetual 26 Automatic Chronometer Silver Dial Ladies Watch for US2,295 or P116,000. If you want a cheap Rolex, it wouldn't hurt to buy a pre-owned piece.

How much is an original Rolex watch?

An original Rolex watch can cost from US$7,500 (P382,000) brand new up to US8,550 (P432,000). To spot a real one from a fake, there are several things you can look at like the material used as well as the overall construction. First off, you can check serial & model numbers engraved deep and marked in fine lines, similar to a diamond cut edge. See the case back since Rolex does not offer clear case backs (the part that meets the skin) for their watches. Also, take note of the mechanical movement when you open the piece if you see “Rolex” engraved on it. If your watch has a quartz movement, it’s definitely a replica watch. The easiest and quickest way to determine if your Rolex is real is by weighing it. You don’t even need a scale; a genuine Rolex will significantly feel heavier. Finally, look at the “cyclops”. Cyclops is the special magnifying glass above the date indicator on a Rolex. Since cyclops are difficult to replicate, a fake Rolex would just use a normal glass.

What is the price of a Rolex Datejust?

The Rolex Datejust ranges between US$19,000 or close to P1 million and up to double that amount. However, you can also opt for pre-owned Rolex Datejust watches for as low as US$2,556 or P130,000. The Rolex Datejust is one of the most iconic pieces from the brand. Since 1945, this self-winding and waterproof wristwatch features a timeless style that is almost immediately recognizable upon first glance. A date is displayed on the 3:00 dial, from which the name "Datejust" was derived.
