    Trade Rolex for JLC - thoughts?

    I might have an opportunity to trade a 2009 Rolex Yachtmaster ref. 16622 Platinum dial and bezel for either a JLC Sector dial Master Chronograph or for a JLC Polaris Chrono blue dial. Both JLC are new with the 8 year warranty. My Rolex is in need of a service.

    I think I would get a good trade value for the YM and I would also be able to get quite a discount on the JLCs as my AD doesn't sell much of those. I do not have any sentimental link to my YM, it was mostly an impulse buy while on vacation.

    Thoughts?

    Rolex is "hot" on the market and the sell price would be better than other brands.

    I live in Australia, and Rolexes are beginning to be sold etc like shares on the stock market.

    I may sell then buy. It's a seller's market, even considering the necessity of service.

    If continuing with the trade, I'd make sure the trade value was considerable in this market.

    If you can sell it yourself, you'll probably get a bit more.

    If not, at least ask one r two online stores what hey would give you for it outright for comparison purposes.

    I love JLC and both are great watches. Just keep in mind your new JLC won't hold it's value the way Rolex does. It will hold value; just not as much.

    Sell the YM yourself and ask for a cheeky 20% discount from the AD on the JLC.

    I'd keep the Rolex; the YM isn't my favourite SS Rolex but I really don't like those two JLCs you can trade for

    Thanks all for the response. I think the best course of action is to sell it on my own and then evaluate the JLC I'd like to buy, trying for a 15-20% discount.

    Do you know if I buy on grey market (ie. Jomashop) would I get the 8 year warranty or lose on that?

    As others have said: if you can do so responsibly it will be in your favor to sell the Rolex for the best cash price and then purchase the JLC. You'll wind up on top
