Tiffany-stamped Rolex watches are a few of the most talked-about as well as collectible pieces in the classic watch space. They comprise a valued specific niche section within the already booming vintage Rolex watch market as well as provide the brand name recognition of both Tiffany & Co. and Rolex.
The truth that Rolex Tiffany dials are no longer produced after being stopped in the early 1990s, means that there is a restricted supply of instances readily available. And this pool of watches obtains continually smaller sizes as enthusiasts snap them up for their collections. Double-signed dials include one more touch of a rarity as well as a distinction to an already in-demand recommendation and Rolex enthusiasts favor versions that have a little something that makes them attract attention.
How much is a Rolex Tiffany dial?
It is not uncommon for Rolex watches with Tiffany dials to offer twice or three times the rate of a similar version with a conventional dial.
In addition, if the watch happens to still be gone along with its original Tiffany & Co. documents from when it was originally purchased, it is practically ensured to gain from a further rise in resale value as well as collectability.
In August 2020, Christie’s offered a Tiffany dial Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 for $43,750, which is well above the value of a classic Submariner 1680 with a basic dial.
In November 2018, Phillips sold a Traveler II ref. 16570 with a Tiffany dial for over $32,000 and in December 2020, Sotheby’s sold a steel GMT-Master 1675 with a black bezel as well as Tiffany stamped dial for $44,100.
For vintage Rolex collection agencies, Tiffany dials represent a past period in the firm’s background. Rolex now prides itself on a complete in-house manufacturing process as well as a limited degree of quality control.
Co-branded dials, not to mention the extremely irregular dial printing procedure that took place during the Tiffany & Co. collaboration, are not something that Rolex would ever tolerate today, which is specifically why collectors will pay a cost for them.
