Best shops in BKK for genuine second hand rolex?

Recommended Posts

Are the retail prices the same here in Thailand? I do not want to walk in a Rolex shop here just to find out they have the Milgauss Z-Blue (do they have it here?) but just 50,000 more expensive than in Europe.

If you want to be sure you get a genuine one go to a Rolex shop. I bought mine at Siam Paragon but there are other shops they have

If you go to the Rolex site on the Internet for Thailand they have the prices there so you can check

Or you could get a taxi to Wireless Road to the official Rolex shop which sells exactly the same watches as the Swiss shops.

The Wireless road premises are not Watch retailers, they (S.A.B.) can ONLY service the watches, in fact, they are the only place in Bangkok that are officially allowed to do so, they do have watches on display, however, they do not sell them.

Rolex theoretically have a worldwide pricing policy in place, so genuine dealers should be selling at the same retail price, any differences would be on VAT.

You may get a discount on a Gold or Bi-Metal watch, doubtful on a stainless one.

Will keep you updated.

Yes they are more expensive in Thailand than in Europe.

 

No Rolex dealer anywhere will discount a stainless steel sports model more than a token gesture amount unless its to a very good/regular customer. As mentioned you will have better luck with bi-metal and solid metal models, especially DJ's and very much Sky Dwellers which imo will be a future collector piece due to v low sales.

 

For browsing and friendly sales people I find for all high end makes the boutiques/counters in Emporium are most helpful. I mean just walking in with casual clothes on and not wearing an expensive watch already. If you're doing either of those then any of the locations/boutiques will be friendly, lol.

Rolex have a MRSP, ( along with all the other brands in the group)

That minimum price is a global number with only the VAT changing. Note this is a minimum price, and in Thailand there is a premium for the brand, so expect MRSP +

Below the MRSP no official Rolex dealer is allowed to sell below, and if they do and are caught they will lose their official dealer status.

Now lets discuss a bit about copies, without doubt the very best I have seen were in Taiwan, and not particularly cheap, think in hundreds of USD for the very best copies.

As to second hand, some of the most discounted second hand watches I found in Japan ( you are VERY unlikely to find fakes - as if caught arrest is guaranteed )

I am not a huge Rolex fan, but bought the missus a very nice Corum, cost new 680 000 JPY, second hand with papers and box and 6 month guarantee 140 000 JPY.

YES YES YES I know that Japan is not Thailand, but would be my recommendation for second hand watches.

Alternatively look at the multitude of collector auctions in UK and other places and consider perhaps an older timepiece, some of the earlier Rolex are much cheaper than you think. I picked up an early model, needing winder, glass replacement and strap ( as well as service ) many moons ago for something like 120GBP. Using a Non-official Rolex repairer, all sorted for less than 200 more. ( OK got lucky on that one)

some people just don't get it that a watch can be much more than a time-piece.

 

 

Naam,

 

Would you pleas take a moment and explain what you mean by this post.      I'm aware of what another poster said with "The wife didn't get the watch to tell the time. Doesn't matter if it goes or not. Just a fashion statement; as with a Rolex."

 

 

Is that the  general focus  of  your post?

after six months i don't remember to which post i commented. but i agree with the poster who said "The wife didn't get the watch to tell the time" and at the same time i strongly disagree with "Doesn't matter if it goes or not."

 

let me add that i consider the style of Rolexes horrible. nothing of the class of an Audemar Piquet, Cartier, Patek Philippe or Piaget.

Rather buy a Grand Seiko or a Hamilton. Better watch for much less.
