2016 Basel Preview: Rolex... CERAMIC DAYTONA, DaytonaC

There are perhaps real pictures of two new Rolex' intended to be released at Basel 2016.  Both of which are highly anticipated.  I believe with more customer sought upgrades in the future Rolex should sell many watches in the future as well.  Just one example, a platinum GMT Master II Coke with white dial.

Without further prologue, the two models are:

  • Blue, Light Blue GMT Master II "Blueberry"
  • Stainless Steel Daytona with Ceramic Bezel.  True 40mm case likely vs current 38.6mm.

Rolex Price Increase 2/1/16 Confirmed for Germany

After much speculation about a Canadian price increase there is confirmation that Germany will increase Rolex prices approximately 5-6 percent across the board.

This is likely a move to deal with FX as it has long been held that world wide price increases are private.

Canada will likely see a similar increase on 2/1 but it isn't yet confirmed.

A few quick takeaways:
-Rolexes are collected and held as hard assets by many celebrities, millionaires, and billionaires.
-Rolex will raise it's price approximately 5% in Germany
-Rolex has raised it's entry price significantly in it's history but not much recently
-Rolex is likely going to release a new movement in the sub and gmt, upgrade them and significantly raise prices on the upgraded pieces.
