Price History: OP39

Despite the Oyster Perpetual being known as Rolex’s entry-level watch, the price has been steadily increasing over the past few years. Once quite affordable for a Rolex at around $4,000, the secondary market value for this watch has been shooting up the past couple of months, now easily exceeding $6,000.⁠

The reason? This watch was discontinued in September of this year, when Rolex replaced it with the Oyster Perpetual 41 and 36. However, it is likely 39mm is in fact the size of choice for many collectors - causing demand for this watch to increase since its discontinuation. The market price for this watch now actually exceeds the MSRP for the Oyster Perpetual 41 - though finding one of those at retail might prove challenging. ⁠
