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

    Retail is at 11k seeking advice/opinion regarding the watch. I am totally clueless when it comes to Rolex.
    Just get something you like when putting in on. Be it Sub or DSSD. Cause if you pick something someone recommended, you will always think of the watch you have in you heart .

    Default Qn for 1st time rolex buyer

    Hi all, i am a 1st time rolex buyer and appreciate can get some advice here.

    I am interested to buy a GMT Master 2 (116713LN), preferably with credit card. Heard from frez that he recently being quoted $15500 for it. Is it a reasonable price tag? I also recev email that ocbc having 9% cash rebate if any purchase from Cortina if any purchase above $3k with interest-free installment.

    Hopefully some expert here can direct me where will be the best place and best price to purchase the same.

    Many thanks!!!

    Looks like there are a quite a number of first time rolex buyers recently. Economic picking up or just taken the bonus?

    Back to the questions. Correction, rolex do not give credit card with any watch purchased . Guess you mean the credit card size warranty card? As long you are buying present stock and from authorised dealer, the warranty card would be provided.

    I could not advise you on the price for watch, but for TT, normally some discount would be given. If you do not mind oversea set from Authorised dealer, you can look for grey market dealer or in the forum.

    The RRP of 116713LN is SGD17010 & aft 10% disc shld be abt SGD15300 from AD. Best price & place to buy is in SG-ROC (Rolex Garage), but if u wanna buy with credit card, u can try those shops tat advertised in the forum here (e.g. HJ watch, ChuanWatch, etc) who may hav BNIB stocks. If u still prefer to buy from AD & earn rebates/mileage pts on CC at the same time, then try THG, Dickson, etc.

    hi there, sorry for the confusion, i mean payment by credit card (rather than warranty card).

    Is the 10% discount apply across all the AD? or is it still depends on the shop/staff?

    Decided to buy a TT now as i was undecided (for months) whether shd i go for IWC/Breitling or TT
