im still not sure whether to get a brand new one of save a few k by getting a second hand one....but most importantly the condition must be good. will check out the few shops you guys mentioned this wkend, but jus wondering why not hourglass? anyway...do you guys think the sales rep will ignore me because im jus 21yrs old this year >.<
If u're sincere and let them have the feel that u really have the cash at hand to buy a sub, they'll entertain u no matter what. The safest is to look for Oliver at Wisma cos the HWZ forummers bought from him. He's a good guy.

Something to ask all the Rolex expert here...
What does the "A" or "G" or "?" on the Subdate means?

How much will a Subdate cost now? New n 2nd hand.
What's COSC certification? Is it important?

Sorry i just started learning abt watches...
therefore need some guide..

The letter in front of the serial number represents the year of manufacture series . 'D' is the latest series.

COSC is not exactly impt imho, most watches can be regulated to fall within the COSC specification easily nowadays.

ya...but Rolex can hold the value higher as compare to most of the rest...

the ability of having own in-house movement shown the capability of the brand and also the effort/$$$ they willing to put in their own R&D...
for my 5k...i better go for something that using own in-house rather than those using the common movement(especially we see the price diff of those common movement cost and the watch price tag)...

ya..Rolex is mass-product...making 1m watches per year is one thing..but able to sell all of them is another...

ths for all the inputs...i've saw some real cool breitling on display in hour glass but did not ask the sales rep for the pricing. how much does the chrono avenger cost? i think my wallet will happier if I get a pre-owned rolex instead of a brand new one. however, im also concerned abt the suitability of wearing a rolex for someone my age. What other brands do you think will be more suitable for someone in their early 20s? I have a budget of around under 5k to work with at the moment.
