    Default Popular Questions asked when buying watch

    Some of the more popular questions that new members always like to ask

    1.1) which AD (place) to buy rolex and/or other brands in Singapore

    Singapore has several AD that deals with many brands of watches. Rolex can be purchased from

    1. Cortina
    2. Dickson
    3. Kee Hing Hung
    4. Lee Chay
    5. Luxury Fashion
    6. Sincere Fine Watch
    7. Tai Hong Hung
    8. The Hour Glass
    9. The Time Place
    10. Watch Palace


    most if not all brands have fix their discount. therefore it is not possible to get beyond certain discount. the discount offered to you may be the maximum they can give.

    different members here visit different AD and/different branches. some members take time and effort to build a relationship with the AD/SA so that they can enjoy discount when purchasing watches.

    different members also receive different discount structure for the same brand and/or model. so it is hard to say who can receive the best discount. do understand that members are not obliged to share their contact and privilege from their AD/SA with you. do understand that the discount members received may/may not be the same discount structure you receive.

    if a fellow forum member wants to assist you, it is on their own free will. openly asking for best discount may yield zero results. there are better means and ways to seek assistance. one way is to attend gathering that is being organized regular to meet new members and have a chat with them. it will bring you one step closer.

    please do not wait till you want to purchase a watch then seek help. it may be a little too late because there could be a price increase by then or no stock or other reasons. visit AD more often, dont feel shy to ask to have a look @ the watch you are interested. if you dont feel comfortable, then refer to previous paragraph where you attend gathering to meet more members who may or may not be able to assist you.

    1.2) which preown shop is trustworthy.

    if you are afraid to buy from preown shop because you are unsure if the watch is real or not. then ask the preown shop if you can bring it down to RSC for verification. there is an authentication fee. some may agree, some may not. there are ways which you can get this done with some cre8ive thinking.

    1.3) are gray dealers or PI trustworthy?

    most gray dealers or PI will be willing to deal @ RSC or any authorized service centres (non-rolex). if the seller is unwilling to meet @ the authorized service centre, i suggest you walk away from the deal.

    1.4) are private sellers in this forum trustworthy

    refer to point 3.

    do note that all transactions between yourself and preown shop, gray dealers and private sellers are between you and seller. SG-ROC is not liable for any fraud case. buyers are to exercise extreme caution.

    2) which AD offers best discount?

    different AD offers different discount structure. even different branches of the same AD offers different discount structure.

    different members receive different discount structure. so this means the discount structure i receive may not be the same discount structure by a fellow member.

    members may or may not want to share their AD/SA contact with you. please do not be offended. why? first you are stranger to them, they would not want to jeopardize their relationship built with their AD/SA. so if possible, join the gathering that are organized to know the forum members. do put your name/nick down. avoid turning up unannounced.

    do understand that regular customers of AD may get better discount than those walk-in customers or first time customers. these regular customers may not be willing to share with you their lobang. why? because in the past these people have good discount until someone betrayed their trusts. end up these regular customer do not get any more good discounts because the people who bought them went public with their discount given. this in turn got the SE/SA into unnecessary inconvienience, which resulted in penalties imposed on AD by rolex and other brands.

    as such, my suggestion is to do leg work and see which AD is willing to offer you the best discount with/without your negotiating skills.

    if you need assistance, be humble and ask. however, dont expect to be spoon fed. do your leg work and say you went to

    AD 1 - price
    AD 2 - price
    :
    :
    and so forth. look at previous post where there is a list of AD in alphabetical order. if you do not know where they are, kindly visit rolex website and navigate to find out where they are located.


    coming here and ask what is the best discount for this model or which AD has best discount may warrant the wrath of senior members because they have been seeing the same questions posted repeatedly. questions like which AD and best price for this model could warrant response that blast you to oblivion. please do not be offended.
