A Reader Asks: Should I Buy A Steel Rolex Daytona With Cerachrom Bezel (At Double The Retail Price)?
by Ian Skellern
We recently received a message from a reader asking our advice:
I am considering buying a Rolex Daytona with ceramic bezel and white dial. I have found a nice piece, box and papers, unworn, at (what seems to be) a reasonable price.
I like this watch very much and am not planning to sell.
However – is it sensible to buy at double the original retail price?
I would like to be able to sell without losing money, if possible.
Rolex sports watch models (especially Daytona) have been hyped for some years, but previously not to the same extent.
I know that you can’t predict the future, but I would like your opinion.
Not only can we not predict the future, we do not even feel qualified to give an opinion on this. However, we thought that a few of our readers out there may be more familiar with Rolex Daytonas than we are and might be happy to share their thoughts.
If you have any advice or thoughts to share on this subject, please leave them in the comments below.
