Rolex Submariner pristine
« on: November 01, 2019, 08:53:12 AM »
Having to post this again as the last sale fell through. At rock bottom price, R130 000, know it sounds like sales blurb but I am losing quite a bit on this. Would not be selling if it were not that I have the opportunity to get something I have been looking for for a couple years. Very little wear, all boxes and paperwork. Was purchased new 9 months back by a watch dealer from whom I bought it. At present the waiting list for a new one is in the region of 3 years. dealers in Centurion and elsewhere are selling used models, not as recent as this in the 150 thou region and more. Here is an opportunity to grab a classic Rolex, ie the Rolex that made them famous at an excellent price. Buy it and enjoy it, it will not only keep its value but even increase. Photos to follow

Yes, that is the original plastic cover on the watch, I keep my time pieces in pristine condition. feel free to see what Topeatch wants for their dateless model of the sub R149000... madness or greed, one of the two or maybe even both. There is a demand for these because of the current long waiting list.

Excellent price and still an investment watch, as are all Rolex watches

Thanks Chris, I looked around to see what other Subs were selling at and priced this for quite a lot less than some of the asking prices such as Topwatch, who want R169000 for one. Were I in the market I know what I would buy.

Give LuxuryTime a call and find out what they will over you. Maybe they can do the deal for you with a watch that you looking for.

Thanks Gerlach, Luxurytime are dealers and will never give you the best price on a used watch, would be lucky to get R110000 from any watch dealer, even though they know they will sell in the R150000, thatís why they are dealers. Rather than lose money on this, would just as soon keep it and grab the watch I am looking for later on. the amazing thing is that if you check the used watch dealers none have a piece in this condition or at this price and yet I am getting offers bellow what is a very good price... people never cease to amaze me. what ever happened to people seeing something at a great price , whether itís Hifi or anything else and just saying ĎIíll take ití and being happy with a really great purchase.

Guys, let's keep price discussions out of this thread, this is the seller's prerogative.

Hi FD

I was just stating a fact, the seller has been quick to post a lot of prices from various dealers? Sorry if I offended anybody?

thanks FD, no offense whatsoever, it is common knowledge that you can buy a brand new watch from a Rolex dealer for R110000, but you may end up waiting 2 or three years for it, a simple call to any Rolex dealer will confirm a ridiculously long waiting period for any of their sporting models. As I have stated, I am losing a lot on this watch at the asking price, but it is almost certainly the cheapest Rolex Sub in pristine condition anywhere in SA, and no, I am not ripping off anyone as I am inclined to think the dealers are.
