is buying a rolex an investment?
meaning it will appreciate over time or i am dead wrong?

i guess my mum is looking at below 5k while myself, 10k.
Be careful here.

Women’s Rolex and investment shouldn’t be in the same sentence.

$10k for a steel sports Rolex, you’re looking at an old explorer 2.

Thanks! But nothing compared to cichlid la.

Sometimes I use my Olympus camera.. These days no feel, always using Huawei P20 Pro, but crop a lot.

Park your money elsewhere unless you insist on putting your money on rolex for investment
