Rolex sales is highest in Asia, Asian have a strong love for Rolex. Ang Mo Collectors, seem to a even spread.

between PP and VC and Breguet I don't really know which stands on the highest peak.
Breguet complication was highly sought by Royal Families, might be a exclusive thing among royalty.
Rolex, don't know gift or what, somehow landed on a few US presidents. Rolex has a good histroy is dumping $$ into marketing, ranking top 5. Brands like PP, VC etc, marketing spending did not even make it to the top 20 I recall.
I must agree all the marketing paid off to create this kind of status.

Rolex is maintance free! wow.. must have gone unservice for more than a decade. a watch that moves does not mean every mechanical parts are well. U might be already doing damage to the parts without notice.

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...

actually i tot an AD in People Park area offered quite good prices for 1st-hand rolexes...

but i am not sure how that shop compares to other ADs in Lucky PLaza though...


But i know the last place to get the watches are from places like Hourglass or Sincere, as the discount would be lesser...

rather go to a more reputable AD...

any AD to recommend where price is good and offer instalment plan?

Also, any one tot of getting 2nd hand from shops like Peng Kwee or JW?

thanks

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.


what sort of status?

Exclusivitiy- i dont think so

Popularity and recognition leading to high resale value - yes i think so

Asthetics - i personally dont think so, as i personally prefer admiring the movement mechanics in Jaegar, IWC etc...complications such as tourbillion, moon phase etc amaze me...

What i gathered here abt rolex is that it is a nice-looking, durable, maintenance free watch, yet ever popular and resalable brand

so far, i think the discount range is quite standard. Slight different for cash and card payment. i think u should go Hourglass or dickson and check out the discount range... than compared to those at people park...usually walk in discount for oyster perpetual is about 15%...maybe with current market, they may be willing to negotiate a better price.

Peng Kwee as the name imply is peng expensive lor. Not worthy IMO. Just google and u will get ur answer.

Local Rolex forum,

Anyway, the best way is to bring down to RSC, Tong Building and do verification for $75.00

Good luck in your search
