A Stock Market for Rolexes Means It’s Always Time to Buy

The world's first 'stock market of things' adds luxury watches

When we last checked in on StockX, the upstart company was making its name as a collectible sneakers marketplace that operated much like the stock market, with prices fluctuating higher and lower based on bids and asks. And all built around a model of authenticity and transparency.

Since then, they’ve added a few new categories and features, including:

  • Watches. If you’re looking for, say, a vintage Rolex Submariner or Omega Seamaster, this is another great option for buyers and sellers. Plus, they have a weekly watch blog (“The Cultivated Wrist”) that offers curated lists of sport, dress and historical timepieces available for purchase. New sign-ups get $100 off their first purchase.
  • Handbags. Admittedly not our scene, but here’s someone’s chance to pick up some hard-to-find Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel and Gucci bags.
  • Just this month, they launched the StockX Sneaker Scoreboard, a Top 10 “snapshot” of the sneaker market, ranked in order of overall trade volume.
