Rolex Cosmograph Daytona “Panda”

This Rolex you can buy for $12,400 + tax directly from Authorized Dealer; however, it’s almost impossible to get one from the Rolex store due to a meager supply and high demand. The watch is selling on the secondary market at around $22,500, which is close to 81% return on your investment.

This Rolex Daytona looks very clean, and the white and black contrast makes the watch looks fantastic. The case is made off the Oystersteel which was explicitly made by Rolex. When you can experience it in person, you will notice the exceptional finish.

If you are looking to invest in this Rolex Daytona, not that you will be able to park money in a very lucrative watch, but it also looks terrific and has very high demand.
