Bob’s Watches is one of the world’s largest retailers of pre-owned Rolexes. The online retailer posted $100 million in revenue in 2022, the bulk of which comprised pre-owned Rolex sales. 

Chief executive officer Paul Altieri debuted his e-commerce company in 2010 as the Rolex Exchange, but after an acquisition adopted the name Bob’s Watches, a charmingly humble—and acutely memorable! 

2023 has seen some very unique releases from the “crown,” so we asked Altieri to share his top pre-owned Rolex watches of the year—a mix of the best-selling and most in-demand timepieces.

“As far as modern watches go that aren’t Rolex, I really enjoy wearing the 5711 with white dial. I like that you don’t see the white variation as much and love how thin and comfortable the watch is.”
