Have you always wanted to wear the crown on your wrist? Then listen up, because StockX has a thrilling new contest for watch enthusiasts: the chance to score a Rolex Datejust for just $1,000 USD.
This is the Rolex Datejust 16233. It’s two-tone in steel and yellow gold, and this one comes with a champagne dial and 18k yellow gold-fluted bezel — a quintessentially Nineties look, from whence it came. And it’s making a comeback. Back when this watch was new, the retail price was $10,900 USD. On StockX, the average sale price is $4,658 USD. (Over the past 12 months, the exact reference has been selling for anywhere from $4,986 to $6,214 USD.)
As the world’s first “stock market of things,” StockX is a site where buyers place bids, sellers place asks, and the two meet in the middle. For watches, this creates an atmosphere of gamesmanship: buyers can either bid and meet a seller at a suggested price, or simply buy it now at the lowest ask.
It’s a concept that has proven extremely successful; as of June of this year, the Detroit-based company is worth US$1 billion. That’s because the site successfully taps into the impulses of collectors — especially those looking for limited-edition sneakers and watch collectors in search of the recherche, the hard to get, and the covetously cool. It then enables buyers and sellers to trade very much like they would on the real stock exchange. Then, best of all, StockX authenticates the watch before completing the transaction, ensuring you’ll never get a fake.
Right now, our friends at StockX are giving one lucky winner the chance to score this Rolex Datejust 16233 for a quarter of the current asking price, or just $1,000 USD. But you have to act fast — the promotion ends at 11:59 PM EST on October 23rd, 2019.
