Do you own a Rolex watch? Have you bought a Rolex watch before, here in Dubai? Or maybe you flying into Dubai and would like to purchase one.

The following article is written by a guest writer, on all you need to know about Rolex watch prices, here in Dubai. Enjoy.


If you are in Dubai, then there is no doubt that you must have heard about the attractive Rolex watch prices here. Rolex watches are available for sale at many stores across UAE and other countries worldwide. But the thing that makes it special here is the fact that you have plenty of options and attractive prices on all of them. Here’s all you need to know about it.

Rolex watch prices in Dubai

Rolex watches are significantly more expensive than other timepieces, and that is all because of their material quality. The retail pricing of a Rolex is more or less the same in Dubai or any other city. On average, a Rolex can cost you anywhere between AED 30,000 and AED 75,000 via the retail store. 


Why do people say Rolex watches are relatively inexpensive when they travel to Dubai if that is the case? It is because of the pre-owned market situation. Due to the low availability, these watches often go at a premium in the pre-owned market. And that is where you can see a price difference.

Prices of popular Rolex models

In order to make it easier to understand, we are going to list some of the popular Rolex watches in Dubai and their pricing.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Currently, there are around three versions of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona available. The stainless steel model is available via retail stores for a price of around AED 51,000. As soon as you jump up to the gold-cased models or those with diamonds, the retail pricing can shoot up to approximately AED 290,000.

But when you look at the pre-owned market, you will find it at more than double the retail price. This is because getting a brand-new Daytona from the Rolex retail showroom is hard. In the secondary market, Daytona is trading anywhere from AED 80,000 to AED 600,000.

Rolex Yacht-Master

The Yacht-Master is one of the most popular Rolex watches you can buy, with retail prices ranging from AED 50,000 to AED 150,000. In Dubai, the most popular models are generally white, or black dialed models with an 18k yellow gold case and bracelet. This one also has a waitlist if you want to buy it from the retail store.

On the other hand, if you choose to pick one from the pre-owned market, you can get one from a starting price of around AED 40,000 and it can go all the way up to AED 200,000. 

Rolex Datejust 

Rolex Datejust is one of the most sought-after watches. Available in different dial sizes, the watch has an in-house movement that operates at 21,600 beats per hour (6 beats per second). The watch is also water resistant, which means it can keep time even while swimming. At a retail store in Dubai, a Datejust 36 can cost anywhere from AED 26,000 to AED 67,000.

Rolex GMT Master II

Among many watch enthusiasts, the Rolex GMT-Master II has always been the top pick. It is all because of its elegant design and Swiss precision. It’s one of the most sought-after models in the world, with prices ranging from AED 37,000 to AED 140,000, depending on the combination you pick. If you’re looking to add this piece of history to your collection, you should go ahead and buy one from Dubai without blinking an eye. 

Rolex Submariner Date

Rolex Submariner Date is a classic watch and one of the company’s most popular models. The watch has a black dial with white numerals, hour markers and hands. In the UAE, you can get a Rolex Submariner for AED 31,000 and it can go all the way up to AED 144,000. The 40mm watch is hard to get hold of at the retail store, which is why it starts at AED 50,000 in the pre-owned market. 

As soon as you jump towards a model like the Submariner 116610LV, popularly known as the Rolex Hulk, you will end up paying a premium. This watch got its nickname from the Marvel character. This is because the watch has been discontinued, but many people still admire it for its beautiful piece. 

Why buy a Rolex from Dubai?

Rolex watch prices in Dubai are not all that different from around the world at least in terms of retail. However, when you are coming from asian countries you might notice some differences in the pricing when you look at the pre-owned market. With that being said, you should not just buy a Rolex from Dubai just because of its price. You should prefer buying it from the Middle East because of the sheer number of options available. 

Here, you will even be able to find the watches that are rare or have been discontinued. The relatively better pricing is just the icing on the cake.
