Rolex is a brand associated with luxury and the best quality craftsmanship, which is why it is able to fetch high prices for its timepieces. Nevertheless, many people operating on a limited budget would love to own a Rolex watch and it is perfectly possible to find certified authentic Rolex watches for a price of $5,000 or less.
With that said, if you do want to stay below the $5k mark, you will struggle to find many options in official Rolex stores. Instead, your best option is to explore the second hand or grey market. The Jaztime.com online store sells used Rolex watches, with some of the most popular models available at the cheapest prices you will find.
In this post, we explore some of the best men’s Rolex watches to look out for if you are operating on a budget.

Rolex watches are built to the very highest standards. The special Rolex 904L stainless steel is stronger than the steel used by most other manufacturers, while the crystal glass is highly durable. The brand also often utilises scratch resistant materials, and modern Rolex movements are designed to be as shock resistant as possible.
Nevertheless, it can occur that even the most robust, top-of-the-range, authentic Rolex watches become broken. The question for people who find themselves in this situation is: what should you do with you broken Rolex? Is it worth paying to have it repaired? Or can you still sell it, even in its current broken state?
Does Your Broken Rolex Still Have Value?
In most cases, a broken Rolex can be repaired and, for this reason, it will still have some value. With that being said, the value would understandably be less than a watch in excellent condition. The precise value of your broken Rolex is determined by a range of factors, including the model in question, what is broken, and the extent of the damage.

Are you dissatisfied with your old Rolex? Perhaps your timepiece is in need of servicing, or maybe it has too many scratches and needs to be professionally polished. Alternatively, maybe you have simply grown tired of wearing the same old watch. Is there also a new Rolex on your wishlist? Or how about a luxury watch from another brand?
If so, the best option is to trade in your used watch against the price of a new model. In this blog post, we explore some of the common questions that customers have about the trade-in process.
There are many different varieties of the Rolex Daytona, which can affect whether or not the timepiece looks modern or classic, unobtrusive or obvious and in your face. Many Rolex shops will not show all of these different options next to each other, in a single place, but you can view and order all of them from Jaztime.com.
One of the most popular options for buyers is a Rolex Daytona with a black dial. However, even within this category, there are a number of different options to be aware of. In this article, we take a closer look.
The Rolex GMT-Master II collection was introduced in 1983 and initially operated alongside the brand’s main GMT-Master collection. However, since the turn of the millennium, the GMT-Master II has replaced the original GMT-Master line as the manufacturer’s primary range of pilot’s watches.
Rolex designed the initial collection in collaboration with Pan American Airways, and the GMT-Master II is able to keep track of three time zones at once, thanks to its quick-set hour hand, 24-hour GMT hand, and rotatable bezel. The collection has also expanded significantly over the years, with new materials and designs.
As a result of this expansion, buyers have a wide range of options to choose from, and the GMT-Master II is recognized for being one of Rolex’s most versatile models. This buying guide aims to help customers understand the different models within the collection, their differences, and the various options that exist for customization.

The easiest way to find out how much a Rolex is worth, is to make use of the Jaztime.com free value estimation request form, which can be found here: => get a Free Value Estimation for your Rolex
In many ways, the free market and the convenience of online shopping are the enemy of luxury watch brands like Rolex. After all, anyone who knows anything about economics knows the principle of supply and demand, yet luxury watch manufacturers misjudge the demand (and, therefore, the price) of their models all the time. Moreover, they also occasionally make models intentionally scarce, artificially adding to their prestige.
Based purely on demand, for example, there should be more stainless steel Rolex Daytona models. Yet, the company keeps numbers limited to build a sense of exclusivity. If you attempt to buy one from an Authorized Dealer (AD) you will need to be extremely lucky, or you may need to buy it alongside other less desirable Rolex models.
Luxury Watch Brands Create the Grey Market
For Authorized Dealers, watch manufacturers misjudging supply and demand is a problem. Dealers have to pay before they even know which watches they will receive. This can lead to problems when trying to clear their inventory of unsold, unpopular or obsolete timepieces. For instance, a Datejust 36mm with a pink diamond dial could be hard to shift, as it is too big for most women’s tastes, but too feminine for most men.
The solution? In many cases, they try to sell these less desirable watches together with more desirable models to a grey market dealer, who buys in bulk. Of course, the Official Retailer is unlikely to make as much this way, but sometimes cash flow issues and reducing the inventory are more important considerations than trying to sell watches in strict accordance with Rolex’s demands, which can be completely unrealistic.
The Rolex Submariner is one of the brand’s most popular timepieces and although it was originally designed for professional diving, the sports watch has achieved iconic status as a fashion accessory, appearing in numerous James Bond films, as well as in board meetings for some of the top businesses all over the world.
While the Submariner is available in a variety of different materials and color combinations, the gold and black combination has a clear appeal, especially to those intending to wear it as a fashion item. In this article, we take a look at the black and gold Submariner and the main choices available to potential buyers.
