May I check if any bros have have sent their watches in to Rolex Service Centre Singapore recently?

I am thinking of sending my watch in for servicing, but I have read on the forum a few years back that the quality of work from RSC SG was quite bad and watches are returned with new scratches on them.

Not sure if there are any improvement after all these years....
Hmmm, scratches on the lugs sure have one. But the question is are you willing to pay their pricing? If you are ok and at least prepared 1k of servicing cost then yes, can go down RSC.

Don't forget market value of the datejust is around $3k plus wor... so service 3-4 times = 1 datejust watch.

Hi all, looking to get some advice here.

I recently sent a ROLEX OYSTER LADY-DATEJUST 69173, W931338 for serving. The watch is still working, but they are charging me $1324 to service the watch, which includes replacing the hands and one diamond on the face of the watch. Rolex does not sell this watch anymore and the last time they sold it was $7000+.

Based on the cost of the servicing, is it worth it for me to fix it? Taking into consideration that the servicing alone is almost like 1/5 of the price last time. Also, will the value of such a watch rise with time? How do I sell in the future? Who do I sell it to? How much can I sell this watch for?

Thank you.

New DateJust is the worst investment if u want to get more than what you paid.
If u sell to pre own shop at this condition maybe $1.5k; dealer need to fix up to sell and they need to profit. No harm being to those place and let them give u an offer. I checked it out years ago in Japan with my spouse 2 tone diamond DateJust just service and those place offer me usd$1.1k

Just google “FS DateJust 69173” ppl sell on forum to get an idea of local market.

Thought explorer (and exp 2) would be sports models. Personally, I dont think air king is sports model.

Chinatown area, far east plaza or the guy post above you. Buying from grey shop dealers is better as they provide certain warranty services (shop warranty, lemon law, mode of payment (installment via CC) VS buying directly from a personal seller.

shop warranty useless if watch under warranty.
lemon law don't work with grey dealers.
instalment via CC + 3-4% same same. LPPL
shop charges more of course as they have to pay rent.
