Rolex Watch Insurance

Rolex is probably the most famous watch brand in the world, asks anyone to name a prestigious watch brand and almost everyone will say Rolex. Renowned the world over for quality and style Rolex produce a range of watches utilising automatic, mechanical and quartz movements in a seemingly endless variations, models include; the Datejust, Daytona, Oyster & Submariner. Some of these models have been in existence for decades with the first Oyster being produced as long ago as 1926. Subtle changes are introduced by Rolex and regular intervals to ensure that the watches stay as contemporary as possible.

Insurance for your Rolex or Rolex Collection

At Assetsure, it’s fair to say that more than any other watch; it’s a Rolex that we are asked to quote on. We also note that once a Rolex is obtained, then there is often a tendency to purchase another, such is the appeal of this marquee brand. We have developed a policy that is suitable for owners and collectors of Rolex watches. Unlike many insurers, we are happy to issue a policy for a single Rolex, or indeed for an entire collection. Our policy offers the wide insurance cover that watch owners require including worldwide all risks insurance without excess. Our policy is underwritten at Lloyd’s of London and your insurance can be paid by monthly direct debit if required.

We are quite happy to issue an insurance policy for a single watch and you can add to your policy throughout the year and only pay a pro-rata additional premium without any adjustment fees.

Obtaining an Insurance quote for your Rolex

This is very straight forward, either complete one of our on line forms or telephone our office; we can usually provide a quotation within a couple of minutes and insurance the same day. Your full policy documents can be emailed to you immediately cover is issued. We offer a full 30 days for you to review the documents we send you. We also offer a service where we can store your purchase receipt or valuation documents. Normally we would ask that you have some documentation to support your application but this should not normally delay a quote being obtained.

Surprisingly easy, watch clasps can fail and the watch can fall off the wrist, if busy it may be a while before you notice the item is missing.

When travelling away from home you must be wearing the watch or it must be left in a safe (a normal hotel room safe is adequate) All watch losses must be reported to the police.

Theft

Theft

Thieves are on the lookout for Rolex watches

A valuable watch such as a Rolex proudly displayed on your wrist is a beacon to thieves, they know the expensive brands and often will have a detailed knowledge of the model as well.

Many are quite adept at removing watches from your wrist, they’ll know how the clasps and straps work and often will operate in teams employing diversionary tactics to steal your item without you realising it.

Other thieves take a more brutal approach threatening violence against you personally or using it to break in to your home or a gym locker where the watch has been left.

An Assetsure policy will cover you against Theft including when it has been left at home or in a gym locker or a safe whilst you are away from you home.

Watches over £10,000 left at home will also need to be kept in a safe. All Thefts must be reported to the police.

Accidental Damage

Accidents happen, we ensure that your item can be repaired or replaced.
