did U remove it with the intention to stick it back as suggested?
how is it possible to perform this task and keep sticker like new, there should be a trace.
plus U will need to reapply some kind of glue to stick it back after putting the sticker around for yrs.

Actually just paste the sticker on some other metal surface and keep inside the box. The sticker should maintiain some adhesiveness even after some time. Of course will have signs of being peeled off but beats leaving it on the watch.

a quick question..how are Rolex watches compared with other mechanical watches from IWC, Patek, Jaegar?

Does rolex use its own house movement?

Whenever i see those watch fairs, rolex is seldom featured as compared to the above mentioned brands and omega..

a class of its own. A cult status.

Being a non hard core collector, i dont really care about the mechanism of the watch cause to me all are reliable brands with rich watch making history.

I go the branding, design and the associated feel of the watch...

shallow, yes.

THH @ lucky plaza quote me 20% for SS DJ blue concentric circles. Price is still nego though. Wonder whether is it a good deal. Thinking of asking for 22%. Contemplating to get one with diamonds but they dont have one with blue concentric circles.
if cash payment should be able to stretch to 22%, plus currently market climate there will be less buyers, maybe.....
was at HG earlier...saw a couple of PRC chicks buying rolexes, IWCs...

IWC,Patek,Jaeger Le-Coultre are just high-end watches.
Rolex is not just a high-end watch...it has achieved a status like no other watch companies on earth.

Rolex can be considered as using it's own in-house movement.

Watch fairs focuses on exclusivity.

thanx entirely debatable. ppl can argue brands like Patek had acheived a status away above Rolex. the same goes with Audemars Piguet, Vacheron Constantin and Breguet.

I beg to differ. PP,AP,VC stands on the same cluster of mountain peaks with Patek being the highest. Rolex, belongs to another mountain peak, not of equal height but of considerable qualities which outshines the cluster. Patek may have the highest peak away from Rolex but at most, it's only a highly reverred watch brand like the rest of AP,VC. Like what you've said, a status away from Rolex makes the Rolex identity unique in it's very own way.

Cash,Gold,Diamond & Rolex. They have one thing in common...that can't be said for other brands and that is what separates the status of Rolex from Tag Heuer to Patek. The Rolex company has created a powerful brand.

Thats my viewpoint.
