Thanks guys for all the inputs...
Actually, just back from Lucerne (Bucherer) n managed to grab a SD43 at retail price and slightly cheaper after 7.7% VAT rebate..
Still got 2 tone subs (black n blue) n frds(4x) all koped on the spot..
That Shop really got the most Rolex of all places I been to..
DJ 36/41 galore.. no blue dial though for 41..
However, the PEPSI still gets me intrigued every time I look at it😅😅
Think will wait it out at the moment as I dun like carrot😅...

Good choice. Was contemplating between SD43 and Half gold Sub black, both are lovely to me. End up I bought the Sub which is my first choice. Never regretted since.

I will never buy above retail for a Rolex. It's not like if one dont have the watch, will die. Dont be a carrot head!
I feel that if it's slightly above retail price still ok lah. You are right, no watch won't die. Don't be carrot head

If you don’t care about value retention, buy the watch that you like.

If maximizing the value of the watch in future is of concern, buy the steel watch.
"Value retention" is a dirty term here, bro... Don't get farked by the passionate watch fanboys here

i had the intentions to buy. i brought cash.
upon hearing that it has a waiting list with indefinite duration, i made the choice to buy something else.

I just state my experience, don’t care whether fanboys fark me or not.

Over the years, I’ve bought and sold a good number of watches. The only watches that I can say I wear them for free (for years even), or make money at the time of selling off, are steel sports Rolexes.

I suppose I can make money if I sell off my 5712 now since it bought it at close to $30k. But I have no intentions of doing that.

Sure, the notion of “value retention” takes away the romanticism of buying a watch, I get that.

But I merely offer my own viewpoint and experience to a question posed by a forum member. Anyone can disagree.

No flying farks given by me.

Good for you ! Someone else here just has a little sand in his vagina because he tried to flex on people here and wound up looking stupid.

Just wait. Prices dropping. So many fellas want to sell high for sports model. So few people biting. These flippers sucking thumb. 2nd hand shops already lowered prices by about 5% compared to same time last year.

Some people really think rolex so popular that every man in the street wants one ah? Pls lah, if not for roti-prata flippers all over the world, the 2nd hand shop dealers included, this current shortage of sports models will not be happening. When times are good, and profit to be made, everyone with that little bit of connection wants to make fast buck.

When times are bad, who cares about branded watch? Some flippers with little bit of money will say they can hold, don't scared. Others will tell them, can hold can hold lor. Holding can pit food on the table ah? Holding can generate passive income ah? Holding can prevent depreciation due to purchase date getting longer ah? Holding can ensurenthat the watch continue trading at premium above RRP when recession finish ah?

The point is, to each his own. U like the watch, see the value, don't mind the price, then u buy. Don't go in expecting an appreciation. Sometimes can hold value over the years, already TAO CHIO liao.peace.
