My experience with Rolex started in 2013, when I bought a Submariner to celebrate an achievement at work. To be honest, I have never had a close relationship with the watch until the birth of my son, when it was with me during the stay at the hospital with my wife. Before that, I have always wanted to trade or sell it off because it just looks plain boring to me.
However, since the day on my son's birth in 2014, I have decided to always keep it to pass it down to him. Even my wife who has never been a watch lover has decided to choose a Rolex as her "push" present, to be passed down to my son as well in future.
Till date, the Submariner has served me well in a sort of steady and quiet way. I have no worries on using it as daily beater and even dove with it in Maldives back in 2014.
It just seems to me good enough to be passed down for future generations. yeah I know some people will fancy a Patek as an heirloom but somehow i just feel a delicate Patek doesnt cut it for me (not sour grapes).
Wonder whether anyone share the same feelings towards Rolex as me, but thanks for hearing me out on a rainy afternoon.
