My great grandfather's Rolex

My great grandfather loves watches. One of the brands he used to collect was Rolex. Before he pass away, he left a couple of Rolex watches to my grandpa. According to my grandpa, these watches which cost around MYR3,000-4,000 many years ago has now appreciates. He showed me a gold one which looks a bit old and requires refurbishment costing around MYR30,000 today. I was shocked! I would suggest he keeps it somewhere safe instead of parading the watch around the city.
