Rolex Price Evolution 1957 - 2014

 

Rolex Price Evolution

 

This is a table that a Rolex AD gave me to show how these watches appreciate over the years, or put differently, how the US dollar has devaluated. An inflation calculator is posted here to see how a Rolex purchased in the past would cost in current dollars.

 

An Excel version of the Rolex Price Evolution is here, and a 4 page printable .PDF version is here.
