The Rolex brand is recognized around the world as the leading manufacturer of luxury watches and its timepieces serve not only as functional fashion items, but also as status symbols. Throughout the years, there has always been interest in celebrity figures wearing Rolex watches, and this has been especially true of women in recent years.
One of the major trends within celebrity circles has been women wearing what are regarded as over-sized Rolex watches – those that have been traditionally worn by men. In this blog post, we take a closer look at some of the most high-profile female celebrities that wear Rolex watches, along with the models they have opted for.
1. Jennifer Aniston – Rolex Day-Date President / Rolex Milgauss
Jennifer Aniston is one of the most instantly recognizable female celebrities who is regularly seen sporting a Rolex watch. The former ‘Friends’ actress is also a notable example of the aforementioned trend of preferring to wear over-sized men’s models, rather than the smaller ladies’ timepieces like the Lady-Datejust.
Anyone with an interest in luxury watches, such as those produced by Rolex, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe, knows to expect to have to pay high prices for the top brands. However, one of the noticeable trends throughout 2020 and 2021 has been a rapid increase in prices, even above what you might typically anticipate.
Therefore, if you are getting into the watch market yourself in 2021 or 2022, or looking to purchase a luxury timepiece for a friend or loved one, you are likely to have plenty of questions regarding the prices you see. Why are these watches so expensive? Why are watches selling way above retail price? Should you try to buy on the grey market?
In this article, we explore the answers to these questions and more, and outline what is behind prices skyrocketing.
The Issue of Supply and Demand
One of the reasons why luxury watches are typically so expensive is because the supply of many timepieces does not come close to matching the demand. In other words, there are more people who want to buy luxury watches than there are luxury watches on sale. This can lead to situations where customers enter Rolex retailers to see very few watches to no watches on sale and it is common to find that you are unable to actually purchase a watch you may have seen on their website.
Rolex watches are a significant investment, and while purchasing one hints at a certain level of personal wealth, most buyers are still keen to avoid unnecessary expenses. With this in mind, one of the most common questions potential buyers ask is: where can you buy a Rolex in the USA and legally avoid the payment of sales tax?
The best way to achieve this is to purchase a Rolex online, although it is important to understand precisely how this works and what the limitations are. In this article, we explain a little more about sales tax in relation to Rolex purchases, and the ways that online platforms like Jaztime.com can help to reduce costs.

Unfortunately, the sheer number of fake Rolex watches out there is enormous and some of them are extremely convincing.
