Anyone got buy Aries Gold before?

Any review?



How come so cheap?

SGD$250 got sapphire glass?
Read it is sapphire glass cause it is just coated on glass. 1mm coat or 1nm coat no idea. Sapphire crystal different

Sapphire crystal not expensive but watches profit margin high. For sgd$200 watch cost to make is like $40-50. Sapphire crystal direct from manufacturer already half the cost

Just realised that
This is probably the only modern sports rolex with a gilt printing of their logo.
Also red fonts on the ym logo.
The Lume is also abit yellowish compared to the white lume on other pieces.
Interesting.

Lol.
Gotta say, I like it.
I love modern pieces looking like vintage.
No stress

Gotta add,

I believe rolex used these in their old watches. I think it's perfectly alright for them to bring it back.

DFS - u meant the T-gallery at orchard or the stores in changi airport? Both belongs to DFS.

You can nego the prices at DFS changi but the room for discount is very limited. For T gallery at orchard, u can get approx 10 to 15% off for brands such as IWC... significantly lesser compared to other ADs.
