Best shops in BKK for genuine second hand rolex?

Recommended Posts

Virat Watch @ MBK (Mah Boon Krong Mall near Siam stop on BTS)

 

3rd Floor - Big Fat Porky Pig Thai Chinese Guy runs it and has showcases

full of Rollie and Patek.

 

There are a cluster of high end watch dealers right around him as well.

 

I've got a Rolex collection that would choke an Arab Sheik 

but not longer need the feel for bling after stacking my chips so 

high.

 

oH!

He does have great stock but is exceptionally rude and expensive.

 

Papaya are much nicer to deal with.

There are also half a dozen dealers on the ground floor of Central World.321852790_Screenshot2019-01-18at08_51_12.png.10d339c541e1f076503654c935a17f88.png

To add - nearly all of the used dealers at Central World have moved to the 5th floor and are located right next to each other, such as Thong Patek, Time Masterpieces, Time Zone etc.

I just had an Explorer II at the Rolex Service Center at Witthayu Road.

I took about 5 weeks and they charged 22,000 THB, which they told me is the same price as in every country.

After the Service, the watch has a 2 year international guarantee.

In general, mechanical watches should have a service ( lubricants, sealing rings, etc. ) every 5 - 7 years.

When buying a second hand Rolex ( or any other mechanical watch ), I would check when the last service was done.

Rolex recommends service every 10 years.

 

i would also find an independent watchmaker that you trust and have it serviced for about 40% less than the price of a RSC.

Why would anyone want to buy a secondhand Rolex, when there are dozens of new ones for sale in Nong Khai? Maybe other places too. But at the market they are less than 1000k baht. Don't think certificates of authenticity are issued; but could ask, probably charge a bit extra.

When we at the duty free in Nong Khai a couple of years back Mrs Owl said she wanted a watch. At one particular stall they had at least 10 Rolex for under 1k baht. She looked them over but decided on a 'Rado'. Lovely little thing it is too, I'll give her that; but not a Rolex. She didn't care about Rolex or any other make we farang are familiar with. I was quite chuffed to get away with only spending 800 baht.

 

Anyway, last month, in Penn, she went to a watch-seller - who had a little shop - to get a link taken out. He told the Mrs that it was authentic Rado and was worth at least 5k baht.

 

I don't profess to know anything about watches. I only ever had one, and that was from Lidl with a cartoon face. Chucked it when the battery ran out.

1.  Next to impossible to find sport models for sale and waiting lists are years long.  If you can find a new Daytona for sale at a Rolex boutique for MSRP...buy it...because you’ll be able to sell it the next day for a lot more.

 

Notice that Rolex hold their price so well. Suddenly I'm taking Interesting. What is MSRP?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those watches at the stall...not real...even the Rado.

 

MSRP = Manufacturers suggested retail price 

 

Rolex Daytona MSRP (Thailand) ฿440,200  Street Price....฿600,000+   Out of my league for sure,

And up. Touching 800,00k here now.

Unreal.  I wonder if Immigration would accept that in lieu of the 800k bank deposit for visa extensions. /s

"Lending" it to Prawit might help.
