Yes lol my lowly omega and seadweller is from timeco.
Brightime price is good. Just Nego. The boss will give his best one.
Chuan price too marked up. They use their rep to upsell
I am interested to know from your experience in this trade which model of Rolex is very easy to sell...

Sort of agree. Best deal is always to get from agents that bulk buy from overseas agent and supply to those grey dealers...I find their price lower than many of the carousell grey dealers. The worst is to buy from carousell end user.. most of the time their price r even higher than shop and already lost their sense of market price... to make it worst their attitude stink when u can’t get close to their expected price n they will start calling u Low ballers
carousell ok la. mostly i met are nice people, only a couple of jokers... and most are ok with going for authentication at buyer's selected shop.

and most people also willing to come at seller location for no obligations viewing, means i travel down also if i wanna view.

Buyer should always go to seller place of convenience for viewing

This should be an obvious rule of thumb that some just don't understand.

yup, thats why im saying most deals that i been through, most people stay by this rule of thumb....

so far so good.

seller always think buyer lowballer.
buyer always think seller price too high.

its normal

carousell is still a place to hunt for good deals. if either party is sincere, can feel it one.

shops are for the desperado for cash.
carousell easily much better.

but shops take in low, some ok one will mark up not too high, also considered not bad for those who wanna go resellers shops to buy. some shops go for fast turnaround with agar agar profit.
bright time @ bencoolen
the time co @ far east.

this 2 i personally feel the price is quite okay. but their watches turnaround quite fast at times especially those popular models.
Yes lol my lowly omega and seadweller is from timeco.
Brightime price is good. Just Nego. The boss will give his best one.
Chuan price too marked up. They use their rep to upsell
i'm looking to get either rolex, omega or franck muller watches from overseas. which country sells such watches at a lower price? thanks.

Er.. when selling Rolex why carousell people like to ask if you are the first owner?

First owner and 100th owner got price difference?

Local Ad or overseas full set got difference?

Or is some new low-ball tactics?

Sent from Xiaomi MI 9 LITE using GAGT
Most annoying for me is already state BNIB with stickers and they ask for more photos then what is already on the listing...

Anyway, got a BNIB DJ41 rhodium, warranty dated last week Jan.
13.3k RRP in SG with wait list, will sell slightly below RRP

I am also a newbie therefore I only buy bnib set and must be authenticated. I don’t really go second hand because I dun want to risk over paying by buying polished set or repaired set. For bnib set, I also try to be careful.. for example if the set dated more than 3-4 months without stickers n sized, I wouldn’t buy too because it means someone may have worn it before resell as bnib. I will tend to pay abit higher for bnib that is dated less than one month old with stickers n unsized.. of coz followed by you need to get it authenticated at independent watch shop... thereafter you can bring to rsc and request for the watch to be sized... once they take it in to resize for u.. u r more or less assured it is genuine. Just some tip for newbie
Thank you so much, this is very helpful! Great advice for newbies like me
