Grand Seiko

Although Grand Seiko is always evolving, many collectors are still drawn to their most memorable references and signature styles.

Renowned for horological innovation with a stream of world firsts including the first TV watches, Seiko created the first ever quartz watch in 1969. Seiko timepieces deliver precisely beautiful Japanese aesthetics, brought to life through total in-house manufacture.

About Us

Bob Watches publicly publishes the current buying and selling value of each Rolex model, acting as an online market for buyers and sellers to find, very simple to get the best deal.

Rolex component


A Rolex watch must work perfectly and maintain its beauty even in the harshest environments. That is why Rolex uses Oystersteel, a steel alloy specific to the brand. Oystersteel belongs to the 904L steel family, which is particularly resistant to corrosion and acquires an exceptional sheen when polished.

Precious metals

Gold Rolex watches possess a truly captivating radiance, born of years of experience in perfecting the use of this most precious of metals. Only by controlling the whole process can Rolex guarantee a peerless, enchanting lustre on its watchcases and bracelets alike.

Adhere to independent production

Rolex exclusively uses 18 ct gold, a princely alloy composed of 750‰ (thousandths) of pure gold, plus exactly the right mixture of elements including silver and copper necessary to produce the different types of 18 ct gold: yellow, white and Everose, Rolex’s exclusive pink gold alloy. 


Rare and precious, considered the noblest of metals, platinum is striking for its silvery whiteness and its vibrant luminosity. Over time it has become the ultimate metal of prestige, with the ability to showcase precious stones like no other material.


Rolesor is the auspicious meeting of two metals on a single Rolex watch: gold and steel, with their contrasting colours and radiance, in subtly balanced harmony.


Rolex developed and patented the Cerachrom bezel for specific Professional models to ensure lasting beauty and functionality even after exposure to the most extreme conditions. Fashioned from extremely hard ceramic material, it is virtually impervious to scratches, and its colour is unaffected by ultraviolet rays of the sun.

PVD process

For optimum legibility, the numerals and graduations are engraved in the ceramic and then coated with a very thin layer of gold or platinum using a PVD process. A final diamond-polishing removes the gold or platinum from the rest of the bezel’s surface and gives an exceptional, long‑lasting lustre.


The origins of the “iron meteorites” incorporated into the dial of a select number of Rolex watches could not be further removed from the other materials used in constructing watches – the metal is taken from an asteroid or possibly a planet that has exploded, propelling material across the Solar System until chance brings it into our own planet’s orbit and gravity pulls it to Earth.


An important factor to keep in mind is that the buyer will likely have to send your watch to be serviced, which will affect the offer that you will receive. Once you agree to the price that the buyer offers you, the next step is to send your watch to the company for review. Bob’s Watches provides a FedEx box as well as a prepaid and insured label for you to use when mailing your timepiece.

You will be notified once the watch is received. Additionally, the process of unboxing and reviewing your Rolex is videotaped to create complete transparency and trust between Bob’s Watches and the customer. Once you agree upon a price, the amount will be wired to you same day.

While other options, such as eBay, Craigslist, or a local jeweler might seem tempting, Bob’s Watches is one of the best options for selling your watch. With several years of experience of buying and selling used Rolex watches online, Bob’s Watches has created a process that is easy, quick, and one that the seller can trust.

What press are Saying

As the world’s first pre-owned and vintage Rolex watch exchange, Bob’s Watches is an established place to buy luxury timepieces for all consumers. Whether you’re knowledgeable about watches or not, Bob’s Watches ensures you get the best price.

While buying a $6,000 Rolex for $2,000 and reselling it for $10,000 is a common occurrence in watch dealing, Bob’s shows prices for buying and provides accurate quotes to sellers after inspecting watches, so both buyers and sellers know that the margin is fair.

They’re also backed by an extensive group of authentication and watch repair experts. Your watch comes with a manufacturer’s warranty as well as a warranty from Bob’s Watches.

Bob’s Watches’ Iconic Watches of Hollywood Fresh Finds auction featured four Rolexes and one Omega including a Rolex “Paul Newman” Daytona ref. 6239 that sold for $185,000; a Rolex Submariner ref. 6538 aka “James Bond Submariner” that went for $180,000; and a Rolex GMT Master (Pussy Galore) ref. 6542, which has a high bid of $175,000.

All watches are sold without buyers’ commission, potentially saving 25% of a price paid at an auction held by one of the big five houses.


Paul Altieri, CEO of Bob’s Watches, called the Hollywood sale his most ambitious online auction to date, although he stressed that the watches in the sale are not the pieces that have appeared on the silver screen, but are examples of the precise models that have, and benefit from their association with the movies.

Most people live under the assumption that they’ll never own a luxury watch, let alone be able to buy one as a holiday gift for someone else. Now, the world’s first and largest pre-owned and vintage watch dealer is convincing people to get rid of both preconceived notions by offering authentic Rolexes at fair prices.

For the first time ever, Bob’s Watches is holding a series of holiday-themed public auctions with The 12 Days of Rolex. Every day until December 21, the site will auction off a different Rolex, starting at a far lower price than you’d ever expect to pay.

While you can get a great deal on Rolexes (and a slew of other luxury timepieces) year-round at Bob’s Watches thanks to its transparency with buying and selling prices, the ability to bid means you can potentially get a watch for less than its listed market value.

On top of that, Bob’s Watches doesn’t charge a buyer’s premium and shipping is free, so you won’t find any extra fees tacked on to your purchase.
