Hilltop Pawn Shop & Jewelry has offered many services for Virginia Beach customers since we first opened our doors. Owners of luxury watches (such as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona) know they can come to us to sell their watches for top dollar. If you’re looking for the best place and best way to sell your unwanted watch from the Rolex Daytona collection, we are here to help.

What Are Rolex Daytona Watches?

Rolex is a brand that has been around since the early 1900s, but different versions have been released over the years. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, for example, was first released in the early 1960s. Two more generations have been released since then: once in the late 1980s, and once in 2000.


The history of the Rolex Daytona is fascinating. Named for Daytona, Florida, which was (and is) well-known for being a hub for car racing, the Rolex Daytona watch was actually designed specifically to suit the needs of professional racing drivers. Like most Rolex watches, Daytona models are beautifully suited for everyday wear. For example, some models feature the Monobloc Cerachrom bezel, which is corrosion resistant, unaffected by UV rays, and has water resistance. The Rolex Daytona Oyster case is a 40mm case with screw-down pushers; it’s made to last and is even guaranteed waterproof all the way to 100 meters, or 330 feet. Because of their attractive appearance and ideal construction, they are watches you can wear -- and count on -- every day, no matter what you’re up to.


However, these watches are much more than just an everyday watch. A key part of the model is its chronograph functions, including its exceptionally legible tachymetric scale, which is ideal for endurance race drivers and other race car drivers alike and makes this watch the ultimate timing tool for racing and a wide range of sports. Whether you’re a professional athlete or simply someone who appreciates the finer things in life, you might have decided that the Rolex Daytona was the perfect timepiece for you.

Who Buys Rolex Daytona Watches in Virginia Beach?

If you’re interested in selling your Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona watch and don’t want to leave Virginia Beach to do it, visit Hilltop Pawn on Laskin Road! We buy luxury watches six days a week, and we always offer top dollar for them.


Of course, there are others who might buy your watch. Some people choose to sell their Rolex watches online and end up having success doing so. This can be a pain, though. You have to find the right auction site or marketplace to sell your watch. It might take days, weeks, or even longer to find a buyer, which might not work well for you if you need cash for your watch right now. There are often listing fees on auction sites and marketplaces, and there’s the risk of things like your watch being lost in the mail when you ship it.


You could try to find a personal buyer, but this may not work out well, either. It can be hard to find an individual who understands and appreciates the true value of a Rolex Daytona watch, so you might struggle to find someone who will pay you what you deserve for your watch. You also have to worry about scams and all of the dangers that go along with meeting a random stranger from Facebook or Craigslist.


There’s no reason to go through these hassles when selling your watch. Instead, you can just visit Hilltop Pawn and Jewelry in Virginia Beach. There’s no worry about scams, fake currency, or a dangerous or sketchy interaction with a private buyer. There’s no worry about not being paid what you deserve, your watch getting lost in the mail when you ship it, or listing fees. It’s just as simple as bringing in your watch and walking out with cash money the same day, with no waits, no hassles, and no problems. In fact, we’ll do what we can to get you in and out in no time, and we’ll pay you what you deserve for your specific model of Rolex, too.

Notable Models of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

No matter your Daytona model, we’re interested! Of course, it’s worth it to learn a little more about some of the most notable models of this world-renowned watch. After all, Rolex has offered some more exclusive versions of its Cosmograph Daytona. If you happen to have one of these notable models of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, you can get paid even more. For example, Paul Newman’s Daytona Rolex watch was the most expensive watch to ever be sold, ever, at almost $18 million dollars total (including buyer’s premium) when it was sold at auction. The bid occurred over telephone, despite the fact that there were more than 400 people present at the auction. This happened in New York in 2017.

Paul Newman Daytona Watch

Paul Newman, who is perhaps best known for his acting career, also had a career as a professional race car driver. In 1968, his wife, Joanne Woodward, purchased him a 6239 Rolex Daytona watch as a gift. In fact, he was well-known for wearing this same watch during his prolific acting career in the 1970s and 1980s. Although neither Rolex nor Paul Newman initially planned to work together to promote the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, this is exactly what happened.


Now, the Paul Newman Daytona watch is one of the most desired (and expensive) watches in the world. Paul Newman Daytona watches have a reference number of 6239, 6241, 6262, 6263, 6264, or 6265. Be aware that not all Rolex watches with these reference numbers are Paul Newman Daytona watches, however. What sets the Paul Newman Rolex watches apart is actually the configuration of the dial. This dial is known by many as an exotic dial. To be considered a Paul Newman Rolex, the dial of your watch must have an Art Deco font, a dial that features three colors, and harsh marks with small squares that can be found on the subsidiary dial. If you aren’t sure of whether or not your Rolex is a Paul Newman Daytona, bring it in so we can take a look at it! We pay top dollar for Paul Newman Daytonas.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona

The “Rainbow” style of the Rolex Daytona is more of an aftermarket term, but this watch is incredibly valuable. Even though the retail price of this watch is less than $100,000, some of them sell on the aftermarket for close to $1 million. The Rolex Daytona watch comes in Everose, yellow gold, and white gold. It features vibrant rainbow-colored stones that surround the face of the watch. Because of its unique appearance and exclusivity, it is one of the most coveted watches in the world. If you have a Rolex Rainbow Daytona watch that you no longer want, bring it to us so we can offer you top dollar for it!

How to Get Paid More for Your Rolex Daytona Watch

Because of the Rolex collection features and the desirability of these luxury watches, you shouldn’t have had a hard time getting paid a lot for your watch. If you’re wondering how to get paid more for your Rolex Daytona watch, though, we can help!

Sell to Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach

Just as we pay top dollar for jewelry of all brand names, Hilltop Pawn is well-known in the Virginia Beach area for paying top dollar for Rolex Daytona watches and other luxury watches. If you want to get paid more for your watch, choose Hilltop Pawn instead of other buyers.

Bring Accessories and Paperwork

Your watch alone is worth plenty. Plenty of people bring us just their watch, since they may not have their original box or paperwork. We will be able to verify the authenticity and value of your watch by itself. However, if you do happen to have things like the original box and paperwork, we may be able to offer you even more, so don’t forget to bring them along.

Bring Your ID

Unfortunately, even if you have worked with us before, we cannot buy your watch without a valid ID. Therefore, if you want to get paid today for your Rolex Daytona watch, be sure to bring an unexpired, valid, government-issued ID when you’re ready to sell. We’ll take down a little bit of your personal information and process the sale in no time.
