Blok M Plaza/area I think, I saw their big signs once in a while , but why not save up a little bit more and get brand new...

brand new will immediately drop in value.. whereas 2nd hand will not drop in value.
am i right?
i am looking for a great condition 2nd hand, and will keep it for a very very long time.

I think second hand is the way to go, it'll keep the value and it won't lose as much.

depends on the conditions and you never know if the movement is original, has been opened or not.. unless you are an expert, you will never know that.

if there is accompanying certificate, can i be certain that it is original?
also i may buy only from a reputable shop. let me know if anyone knows a reputable 2nd hand shop in jkt.
other suggestions are welcomed.

thank you.

Gajah mada plaza is known to have some shops in it selling used rolex watches... reputable or not.. i don't know... I never see a high end watch store in Jakarta that sells used watches.... there's also stores (not AD) in senayan trade center, taman anggrek mall and kelapa gading mall that sells rolex... you may want to check it out....

FYI, even fake ones have certificates and boxes along with tags... I've seen some fake ones and with my limited knowledge, I may not be able to differentiate between the genuine one and the fake one from the outside .... some fakes are really good (even have the rolexrolex on the rehaut).. so you have to be careful if you are looking for the used ones.... and be prepared to negotiate to the max...

Used is better in 90% of the cases but make sure you buy the seller and not only the watch... so check on the store, the reputation and how long they've been in business.
Good Luck

in the US, or Europe, i think it's easier to differentiate reputable stores or not.... in asia, i believe it is harder to judge.... agree that if we find a good honest seller that sells original used rolex, it can be a good purchase for sure... but i've heard that some movement may have been tampered with other non-original parts, even though the casing is still original from rolex... scary thing...

thanks guys.. so my conslusion:
buy new is expensive and drop in value immediately.
buy used is dangerous unless buying from reputable 2nd hand shop.

so.. i'm gonna look for the reputable shop to buy used.
if cannot find one, don't buy at all :)

Sounds good, look on the forum first, there are many reputable guys here and many nice pre-owned watches in nice condition. If you have any questions about the seller, just ask us for references.

if you aim to use it for a long time, don't worry about price drop... it can only be increasing in the future... the brand new rolex price is increasing every year, so the used price will be adjusted as well... brand new or used, it is good... :)

They're quite reputable. Ive purchased from a few of them before, and buying a pre-owned in great condition is probably the best way to go, for me at least.
