Hi guys, decided to spend more money to get a brand new watch. looking at the submariner non date. was quoted $5286 by dickson watch at paragon!!! i quite shocked to hear that price coz other ppl prices are $5400 and above. anyway my dad gonna help me ask his friend if he can get further discount because that time he got a submariner date for $6700. good price? =) hopefully can get my hands on the rolex soon. cheers. thanks ohlins and those who replied anyway. =)
thats a very gd price for the sub. I was quoted $7.2k thats why i chose the GMT2

$5286 for sub no date, expensive. should pay more for Sub Date or SD.

Personnally I feel that not all people like Sub Date. Personal opinion think with the cyclops eye make it so much more ah pek. Sub non date more for younger people.

My opinion. Of course can also argue that other brands like IWC or Penerai are more suited to younger people as well.

hahaa. ya. i considered the sub with date and seadweller as well. i know that the sub non date doesnt hold its value well, less accurate as well.. but come to think of it. must find one watch that i really like. =) the sub with date and seadweller a bit too ex for me though. $1000+++ more for the date. maybe when i am 30 i can get one. =D

Actually, how many of us really sell the watch?

Unless have the hobby keep changing watches (like cars) or like in shows always no money (then why buy Rolex in the first place? Show off?)

Of course does not apply to those who really invest in watches to sell, but those are the high end brands such as Patek Phillpe etc, for Rolex minimum to be either vintage ones or Daytona series I believe.

congrats......

dun worry....the 3130 movement in the 14060m is very accurate, whether cosc tested or not...

most important....like u said....is u bought what u like.....must be 'song' then got kick....why buy something that others say is good...
