Anyone has got lobang for a 15400 blue dial? Recently got poisoned heavily by my friend, but at the same time quite reluctant to offload my batman also.

not against them but just sharing my personal experience. desmond was busy, his dad served me, agreed he's quite a nice guy and he says can slowly see and if wanna take photos just go ahead.

think it was his mum who told me to be careful with the watch and don't scratch it, listen already abit no shiok lah.

that's all. maybe different people with have different experience with different shops, so just sharing experiences. that was the only one time i went in their shop.
Bro, that's not his mom. That's only the odd job aunty. She's the typical uneducated type, don't know how to talk. Desmond's family, his father and sister, are super nice and sincere.

I find KBluxury one of the more straight forward and sincere honest businesses around. They don't fark around the bush and play games. 1 is 1 and 2 is 2.

Lol, I refuse to even bother with KB Luxury, had a horrible experience involving miscomm on Carousell with regards to trade in of my Tudor BB. Everything in black and white, and the fault was the shop's, yet the attitude of the whole family was just terrible.

I had travelled all the way from my place in Yishun to their shop to deal, already made payment via bank transfer, and was told that they had made an error for their response to my question "how much top up for Rolex sub" - instead of the top up amount, they had indicated the trade in value for my BB. Best part is I had verified the amount to transfer first verbally at the shop.

Of course you can imagine how I felt, and I showed it on my face. Desmond's reaction, which showed that he didn't give two hoots was "brother, why face so black". Nope, I wasted 2 hours of my time going to and fro for nothing cos of your stupid mistake, and I'm supposed to smile to you?

Worst part is, when I shared the experience here on HWZ, he had the cheek to ask me if I wanted $50. As if that $50 matters to me, dude. I got better things to do on a weekend. Also started niaming about how he wanted to give me back the amount in cash but I made him transfer the money back. Seriously, just think, do I really want to spend even more time depositing the money back in my account?

It's not about the money, or the deal. It's about how you treat your customers, potential or otherwise. I cannot with a good conscience say that the shop cares or gives a damn about its customers and have since always steered my friends away from this bunch.

You can check out the converstion with Bluebird (Desmond from KB Luxury) here, and judge for yourself. He's deleted the offensive posts but the quotes showing what he said remain.

can re-emphasize what the RSC counter lady meant by 3yrs and longer "won't take in?" meaning they do not service the watch when past the 3 yr? Ain't Rolex provides 5 years warranty for manufacturing defects right?
Hallo. I interpreted that she probably mean my watch have not pass the 5 years mark for the recommended servicing. Maybe I noob, gave away my intention was to actually do verification 🙄

Well, Desmond apparnetly took offense at me asking why his 14060 bezel so tight. Claim it's normal, and cannot compare to 114060. Also niam when responding to me here.

Let me tell you, I had trouble turning the bezel on that piece with my hands. My current 14060, which I got from another second hand dealer, no such problem. It is not the 114060, but a normal grip gets the job done.

You actually listened to the bugger?

Your boss customer see watch, doing sales, you dare to say eh don't scratch the watch?

i know RSC used to do verification for a fee and up till recent years read from forumers comments RSC no longer does it even for a fee.

but that lady mention something like it's not even 3 year old watch they will not take in to service e.g paid general servicing? if a customer is willing to pay even for a 3 month old watch to service, why would RSC "refuse"?

There's cases where people actually scratch the watch.
The smartest way is to wrap it and let customer try it.
Grey dealer is not ad.
If ad tell rolex or any brand their watch fk up because of rough customer handling.
They still pay only 60-65% of the watch rrp and can choose to return

Grey dealer is buy off people. So basically they pay more. And shld customer fk up the watch. They all llst.
Cannot go back to ad.

They will.
Because no point to service unless got something wrong.
They have better things to do. Like helping other customer watches that really have problem or old watches.

If they wanna be cb. They open case. Check check nothing wrong.
Put back. Charge you few hundred.

So they reject is saving you money.
