Buying a Luxury Watch? Look At Rolex

Once Upon a Time…

About a year and a half ago, my friends and I got a luxury watch together and asked what we would get ourselves to commemorate the milestone. Some of us have bought some pretty expensive trinkets, and one thing we all agreed on was that we wanted to collect something of good value that would last. We have already collected handbags and clutch bags, so when someone thought of a luxury watch, we thought of “Rolex.” After all, we saw many of their advertisements online and in magazines. were Rolex watches are said to be in high demand all over the world, as their watches are recognized for their timeless designs, high quality, reliability, and value retention. We pulled out our phones to check out Rolex’s official website and then thought it would be a good idea to check out their stores.

Choosing a Location

We started looking at the Rolex website to find our nearest retailer, and it showed a list of official stores in our area. After sending a message on WhatsApp we got a response from this store within an hour. To jump to where I deposited my Rolex, here’s the place. They have been in business for decades and had great reviews online. The initial messages sent were short, polite, and fair with an explanation that they would prefer to discuss our needs in-store. They invited us to their store where we could see the models on display to try and compare. Two of my friends encouraged me to make an appointment because they had been to this place together a year ago, and it was busy the last time.

When I arrived for my appointment, the gentleman who met me showed me around and introduced me to some of the newly launched Rolex timepieces. We spent some time talking about my current watch collection and what kind of luxury watch I wanted to add to it, and I showed her what kind of watches I saved from the website.

Exposure Only

Although the models I saw online were not available in-store. I was pleasantly surprised and a little underwhelmed when he invited me to try on the various models on display at the time. He explained that Rolex authorized dealers were asked to fit the watches. They were received on display ‘for exhibition only’ for several weeks. Allowing potential customers to see actual models instead of just guessing how the watches might look and feel. Apparently, this was Rolex’s answer to solving the empty showcases seen at every retailer. And boutiques around the world for quite some time. Because the demand for their watches is at an all-time high!

After we comb through sizes, gold types, and dial selections. I gained a better appreciation of the range of watches produced. Although some were beautiful, they were not among my initial preferences. He took note of what I liked, suggested some alternatives, and assured me it would be worth the wait. At the end of that visit, he sent me an email with the details of the luxury watch I wanted to waitlist for. And said that it will take at least a year for my turn on the list. Fast forward 15 months, and I was back in the store to unbox my watch!


It was nice to be able to see the entire collection of luxury watch on the Rolex website, but the help I received from an expert really helped me understand what I was looking for. In the past, I had a different experience when I bought watches from other brands. And finally adding a Rolex to my collection made me feel like I had arrived. And I’m seriously considering adding another, or even two, Rolex watches at some point in the future.
