Really funny for you to pass judgment that it’s a frankenwatch from just a photo and a few background info of how and who I got it from.

I guess it really depends on the quality of friends you have and your own personal experiences with dealing with such friends. I’ve never had issues dealing with friends as I only deal with those whom I know will not screw me over to make a quick buck. And sure, lots of shady HK watch shops around but that doesn’t mean that all of them are illegitimate.
All these scrutiny for franken is part and parcel of vintage enthusiasts.. i wont further speculate the intentions are out of passion or something else..

For me at least, the more i hear the more i hesitate on vintage (they arent cheap either)

Ultimately wat matters most is yr own comfort level though.. so i hope u enjoy the watch!

Back in 2018 was it possible to get Pepsi from AD without the “journey” ? Or maybe a bundle with DJ ?

how I wish some day when the supply improves or popularity wanes we can let these ADs get a taste of their own medicine back.

u want my business ? U need to start a “journey” with me too and sell me your watches at 20% below msrp.

Lol good one.. I for sure detest the AD… even if market wane and all Rolex models available at AD.. I would also not purchase from them but look for the cheapest in the market but I will go AD and disturb them with your strategy.. cocky and arrogant ADs

2018 already has journey concept for thg.. do some research..buy from AD still the best.. can clock a lot of miles too. Ad cocky and arrogant is just a perception..

Rolex every year gain market share

even mighty AP PP VC and RM also lose out

tian xia wu di brand

even all pawn shops in singapore with the rolex panda also never flinch when price drop

Agreed

but imagine instead of the father(Rolex) handling allocation, they let an outsider(AD) decided who should marry the girl and says u need to start a journey with some hippos before we will consider you.

it’s not going to solve scarcity issue if Rolex follows RM and AP route but at least I don’t feel like I’m being taken advantage by the middleman.

Yes but if rolex sell you at actual market value retail price then it will go the way of the past with massive discount

End of the day its more fair to the buyer also and not just a waitlist

at least you know the middleman went through alot, eg. buy many non rolex to get the rolex

ok la the worst experience that i had is not at rolex AD but VC boutique at ION... when asked about overseas, the face turned like machiam owe her few million dollars.. can see the lady SA very reluctant to register you if not of the company policy.. but the door man is very polite though..
guess grey is still the way to go at least dont need to see the SA arrogant and cocky attitude
