  • Advisory : Recommendation for first Rolex?

    Hi all,

    I'm considering purchasing my first rolex and currently keen in the Submariner Date (116610LN) black dial.

    Retail is at 11k seeking advice/opinion regarding the watch. I am totally clueless when it comes to Rolex.

      If you want to buy from AD. Than make use of credit cards promotion that is on from Maybank and HSBC.
      If you want cheapest than it would be in SG Roc.
      If you ask how does the watch feels, I would say awesome.
      Anything else?

          The Sub is a good and safe choice bro. But if you like to travel, the GMT is more suited.

              Thanks for all the replies!

              After taking a look at the sub physically, find it a little small when worn on my wrist. I think it's also partly because I tend to wear big watches - 44mm and above.

              Now I'm tempted towards the dssd. Nice size but looks super thick!
              Anyone use it as a daily watch?

                Do AD typically give discount?

                  I find the size of DSSD is ok, in fact just the right size for me. The DSSD is one of my daily watch. Have you tried the 45mm Planet Ocean? It's even thicker than DSSD!

                    IMHO, DSSD is beautiful but not suited for daily wear especially if your working attire is a long sleeve shirt. Sub, GMT and Explorer are good choice for all working attires. If you have a deeper pocket, go for Daytona! All Rolex lovers yearn to own a Daytona someday :-)

                      If u like big watches, another 44mm watch from Rolex is the YM2, but imho the DSSD looks & feels better
                      Do AD typically give discount? It depends on the models & how gd ur relationship with them

                        Answer to that is yes and no. Depends on model. Sub still have.
                        You ask those that know the AD well will get more doscount.
                        Walk in usually 5-10%.

                          Don't think ADs will give discounts for the popular models, usually only for models like with gold. But I might be wrong, no harm trying!

                            Can't go wrong with the black Submariner bro. It's such an iconic watch and yet at the same time it's not too loud and flashy. Good for all occasions. It was my first watch too!

                              Get the sub bro.. I don't think most AD's give discount for SS sport watches... But if you want discount then get the TT sub cos AD gave 15% discount... My first rolex was a discontinued tt sub... So it's ideal for a first rolex... Cheers...
