Hi there

It's my first post in this forum although I have been reading (mostly omega) for a while.

I should be grateful for posters opinions as to which current Rolex will become the most collectable. If this question has already been posted recently - please post a link.

My home was burgled a while back and the insurers have offered me a £20,000 (underinsured!) voucher.

(I already own a 2007 Daytona and 2005 Yachtsman)

Thanks.

I have no idea really but I'll chip in with the 36mm Explorer because it's just been discontinued (and because I love it).

I'm thinking a 14060m no date sub with non-cosc dial will be a collectible. Its classic in my books.

I think the older 16610, 14060(m) will be classics.

I hope you're not thinking these watches will be worth something though. If you are, you're going to have to wait 20 - 30 years to find out. I mean, the 5512 and 5513 were introduced in the late 50's and 60's and they're readily available for $5K - $10Kish if they're in good condition.

I think that the first year of the Kermit Sub will be a classic.

If I had to guess it will not be what is in style now. If you had the production numbers of the various models I would say the ones that were produced in relatively small numbers. Supply and demand and such dictating price. Double Red Seadwellers were not popular in their day.

While having Rolex no longer make a particular reference is a good place to start...

it's never a guaranty regarding future collectibility or value. However, the safe money would be on the sport models that fall into that category.

The ones that don't sell well. The rarer they are the more valuable they are. If I had to choose I'd guess the Milguass.

If you want to maximize your money a good growth mutual fund is a much safer bet. In 20 years its worth will most likely dwarf what most new watches purchased today will be worth

Thanks for the replies. I decided on the watches I am most likely to wear so I ordered a black sub (4 weeks), green sub (3-4 months) and will go back next and place an order for a white daytonna. Will post a picture once I have all three.
