Why buy a used Rolex Air-King watch?


The Rolex Air-King is one of the oldest names in Rolex’s catalogue and is still as popular today as it was during its inception in 1945. With its 40mm case in Oystersteel, solid-ink Oyster bracelet with Oysterclasp, and distinctive black dial, the Air-King perpetuates the aeronautical heritage of the original Rolex Oyster. There are a multitude of reasons for any watch collector or aficionado to add a Rolex Air-King to their timepiece collection, but also many more reasons to buy a pre-owned one. 


The most significant moment of depreciation for a luxury watch is when it goes from being "new" to "pre-owned". Therefore, once a Rolex is bought new from a store, it immediately depreciates in value, and will continue to do so. The huge benefit of buying a pre-owned Rolex, is that the watch will depreciate much slower and there is a better chance that you will invest in a model that is rare or exclusive. This could actually mean that your watch will appreciate in value over time and turn you a profit should you ever choose to sell. 


You will also find yourself in the beneficial position of acquiring your pre-owned Rolex watch within a few days of purchasing it, whereas buying a new Air-King from a concessionaire will have you on a waiting list for some months to a few years depending on the model, before you can even acquire or purchase it. Therefore, your future self will be thanking the savvy shopper side of you if you buy pre-owned, as not only will it give you a better return on your investment, but it will also be a watch that you can appreciate for longer and sooner.
