    Waitlist since 1996? I think its bs.

    Like the 2023 daytona panda, with the thinner rings, some people are hating on it. So waitlist not that long and alot of people are feeling it out pa.

    So if one wants a daytona, now is the time to reserve one.

    in my opinion, not really bovine feces.

    the guys just put their names down in the list, then go about their activities of daily living. they do not let the non-arrived watch to hinder them in their daily life.

    I'm seeing a smart watch that says "non invasive sugar monitor" in social media, but the ad is Chinese video with Text-to-Speech voice narrator. Which makes me think it's a scam so I don't pay much attention.

    But there was no waitlist in 96.

    My very first Rolex sub, a gift from my dad, was bought in a random Japan trip from an AD. Just a walk in purchase.

    And remember a decade ago, everyone who had a collection of rolex started disposing them and moving to other brands, more exclusive brands.

    i opened a few such ads.
    attention-getter lang talaga,
    as there was no mention at all of the item in question in the infomercfial.
    iba ang binebenta...

    your experience is probably right.

    perusing google,
    the so-called waiting list for rolex, and the so-called complexities of rolex-screening-their-costumers,
    are a very varied lot, coloured with so-called personal experience and of "official-but-non-verifiable insider information"...

    personally,
    my name has been on the waiting list for the black bay 58 for about a year now,
    even as the black bay 54 has come out just recently.
    hmmm...

    my wild guess is,
    stores will have favored costumers, even as they will deny it to the highest heavens.

    ... i do not recall ever seeing a daytona under a display glass...

    anyway,
    i fell for the line,
    "wear a rolex to impress your friends, wear a grand seiko to impress yourself."
    and i did.
    take that, rolex!
    heh heh heh.

    i have followed the rolex ads in the local carousell, for several years,
    and i have seen the rolex bubble grow and go...
    dati, an explorer would advertise for list price of 379K.
    i have observed it swell to 500-600K.
    it appears to have gone down to 400K or so...
    but hot items like daytonas atbp...
