Are you looking to buy a Rolex watch but just don’t know where to start? This guide will help you with everything related to Rolex watches collection and our list of top 10 Rolex watches in Pakistan with prices will help narrow down your search for the perfect Rolex watch for you!
In the olden days, only the rich or the royals would have a watch on them. They were the only ones that needed to keep time! Over time, watches became an essential part of life and everyone needed to have one. But there’s still something about a good, luxury watch that sets you apart from the rest of the crowd.
Many brands make luxury watches, but when you think “expensive” or “luxurious” in the world of watches, one name pops up in everyone’s minds, and that is “Rolex”.
From their impeccable marketing to being a constant “status flex” in almost every song for the past few decades, a Rolex has become that one thing people aspire to get to. Once they get it, it signifies that they’ve “made it”
Why is Rolex So Popular?
When you’re buying a product, you’re paying for everything that went into making it. For Rolex, that means paying everyone that’s worked on the watch. All of the Rolex watch parts are made in house, they don’t buy anything pre-made. While they’re being assembled, there are constant checks and tests to make sure the watches are made perfectly – a great amount of human attention is paid to each individual watch before it goes out to be sold.
The watches are waterproof, some up to 100 meters! That isn’t easy to do. This is also a factor in the fact that they “last forever”. With proper upkeep, a Rolex can literally be a family heirloom, and can be passed down to future generations – this is one of the reasons people buy them even if they’re on the older side.
Their attention to detail and reliability make them a top choice for people when they’re buying watches. Furthermore, Rolex is also a charity, a percentage of its profits are used through the owner, Hans Wilsdorf Foundation. This means that with every watch, some good is done for the world too. All the more reason to get one!

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 is one of those watches that may be overlooked by most people. It doesn’t feature the more popular striking designs, but that doesn’t mean it’s not equally as good. The watch looks like “just another white watch” from a distance, but when you get up close, the quality speaks for itself.

8. Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Oystersteel M116500LN
The original Rolex Cosmograph Daytona was introduced in 1969. This version of the watch is made to remind you of the original but in a totally reformed way. This watch is entirely Oystersteel, bringing in that strong sturdy look that Rolex is known for nowadays also giving it the water resistance. But unlike the Submariner, these watches aren’t really for a diver, they’re more for a driver – a driver that likes to go fast. This watch features 3 “chronographs” along with a tachymetric scale in the bezel that can measure speed up to 400 kilometers or miles an hour. Making this more than the average watch (If being a Rolex wasn’t enough of flex, to begin with). As Rolex still makes this watch today, you can get it brand new for around $14,000. Some resellers sell slightly used versions for close to around $10,000 as well.
9. Rolex Datejust 36 Oystersteel M126200-0002
The Rolex Datejust was first introduced to the world at the 50th anniversary of Rolex in 1945. Since the date it was announced on was special, this watch had to do something with dates. It comes with a beautiful silver dial. It looks simple but interesting enough that you could examine it forever and still be in awe of how it’s finished. The date display has the date change just before midnight. Making it that perfect “countdown to a celebration” watch. This design has managed to stick around for decades and still is one of the most recognizable designs that Rolex has ever come out with. You’d think a watch that marked such a special occasion would be on the higher end of the Rolex price range, but at $7,500, this one ends up being in the lower range, making it accessible to a lot more people.
