This section is visited very often because many people are listing watches for sale at the Rolex Forum. There are two main “For Sale” Categories. As you probably guess, one is only for Rolex and Tudor, while the other is for non-Rolex watches.
If you ever want to list watches for sale at this forum, you need to meet the minimum requirement. It will help if you become a pledge member by donating $30. In other words, the fee for the Rolex forum to sell watches is $30. The pledge expires on the 10 of January. When you donate the money by using PayPal, you will be able to sell watches at the forum.
Just keep in mind that you can only list five watches for sale, and you must not bump until at least 48 hours have transpired from your previous post.

- Wanting To Buy- Watches etc.
- Buyers/Sellers “Who’s Who”?!?!
Another precious topic to read more about at the Rolex forum is the “WatchOut!!!” section. You will learn more about whether or not the watch looks real and get some help from people to give you some pointers if the watch is authentic or not. Keep in mind that the best way to inspect a watch to inspected in person.
This last section of the site is focusing only on three different topics.

I like Rolex forums because the people who are running it are not motivated by commercial use, which makes the forum open-minded. Some other watch forums have a lot of dramas that I am not going to get into. If you are looking to learn about Rolex watches, the Rolex Forums is the place to be part of. You don’t have to pay any fees to learn, but if you want to sell watches, you will need to pay the $30 fee, which needs to be renewed on the 10 of January every year.
