Say what you want about smart phones substituting for watches, but the collectible watch market is still going strong, and National Pawn and Jewelry in Fort Lauderdale is a great place to look for collectible brands that are both beautiful and functional. These watches aren’t jewelry so much as they are wearable art with stunning precision movements and classic styles that make them sought after long after they’re first issued. The Rolex Submariner series certainly falls into this category.


Rolex 40mm Stainless Steel Submariner

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner line of diving watches, even in all their beauty, are designed to resist corrosion and water. Rolex introduced the first of the line in 1954, at Switzerland’s Basel Watch Fair. It was such a hit that the company continue to introduce new models, each series with new distinctive features, like chronometers, black glossy dials, or oversized crowns, which are now a regular feature. You can expect any Submariner to have perpetual self-winding, a solid gold or steel case, and be waterproof up to 1,000 feet—pretty impressive!

When new models come out, collectors like to trade up, which means they take their previous watches to pawn shops throughout South Florida to help finance their new purchases. You want a Submariner at a price well below retail? Check us out.
