It's been awhile already.
But if rolex ad follow is another thing.
BTW this is rolex usa.

Sg now also start to practice this

It doesn't stop people from flipping.
Why because rolex ad withheld stock.
Rolex cannot produce enough for the demand.
It has become a stage where you can't get what you want. Makes you want it even more.

So it's pretty pointless.

^ at least they show consumers that they are trying to curb reselling.
However, reselling is a big part of the rolex market.
It just make the brand more desirable because people couldn't lay their hands on it. And a long standing mindset of general mass that rolex is the the "best" watch you can get out there.
Little that they know. Rolex is just a mid mass luxury product

In the end I decided not to go for the Lorier Neptune v2. To be very honest, I think whatever the brand did to that rehaut, ugly as it was on its own, destroyed the entire look of the watch.

I don't know what look the watch is trying to go for now. Seems confused now, like a modern design with vintage inspired markers and a big crown and acrylic crystal.

This picture from them, which they so proudly took, says it all. Hoping the v1 will pop up soon for a reasonable price somewhere.
