I have bought six from them. I will admit that pricing to buy is around 10% higher than on here. However, I know who they are and where they are. I also, know that I will receive the watch overnight, and it will be in as or better condition than advertised. Selling is an entirely different story. The difference between wholesale and retail is time. Always has been. If you need to sell something and right now, it will produce a lower amount than advertising it and waiting for the buyer that wants it to keep, not flip it. I am very frightful of ebay sellers as well as people that I don't know and especially those without a brick and mortar store. At least with a store, I could , as a worst case scenario, go there and get in front of someone. I am currently in the market to do some Rolex trading, or possibly selling. I won't even give Bob's Watches an attempt at this business. After reading here and being a forum member here for a six years, I am going to reach out to Jacek and see what happens. He seems to get great reviews and be fair in buying and selling prices.

I'll add my recent experience with Bob's, and I have a question.

I requested a quote online for my near perfect 16030 with unknown service history (still runs well, though), and an eager young lady called with an offer of "up to $1800” and a shipping label. I asked if that was the amount I would receive if everything I said and the picture I sent were verified. She said it would depend on what they found. I completely understood that, but I knew they would want to service it (don’t they service all the watches they sell?). I asked if that was included in the offer. No surprise, it wasn't. So $1800 is for a perfect, fully serviced 16030 (meaning $1300-1400 for mine?). I wonder how many of those they receive. They have the right to offer whatever they want, but it seems wrong to offer an amount they know the seller won't receive. Of course, they’ll say they might not recommend servicing. Yeah right!

That brings me to my question. Is there any wholesale buyer that quotes an offer that the seller will actually receive (if they don’t try to deceive the buyer, of course), or is this standard practice? Honestly, I would rather them offer $1350 initially, but I guess that doesn’t get the watch in their hands. That’s the issue I see here, not the low initial offers.

You hit the nail on the head... gotta have it in hand first... makes it much more likely that you'll take the lower bid out of fear of not getting anything at all or the hassle of having to ship it around to multiple dealers...

Crown and Calibre gave me the exact amount they quoted me after reviewing pics and discussing service history (which I knew). I mailed it in to them, they received it and said it was as-described, and sent me a check for full amount. Painless.

We have interacted with Paul Altieri on a number of occasions and can tell you that he is a great guy who has always kept his word in dealings with us. In my opinion, he is very trustworthy and is very enjoyable to be around.

I don't know why everyone can't agree that not stating up front there is a cost that sellers will incur for x, y, and z is misleading? Barring the sale of stickered watches, everyone is going to take a hit that is not clear to potential sellers. When I sell a 10 year old watch, they buyer offers me a price for a 10 year old watch. If there are issues that are not consistent with the watch's age and described condition, that's another story.

I also happen to think Paul/Bob is a decent guy and a genuine watch enthusiast. Regarding my actual experience with the company, it is limited, however, they were horrendous at answering my direct questions via email. It got comical when I was asking basic things about a watch- when was the warranty card stamped and what series the serial number was. On two separate occasions, there was a string of emails because I could not get an answer for clearly stated questions. I went so far as to bullet the questions as in 1) When was warranty card stamped? 2) Can I get a partial serial number. On both occasions, the answers never came because I was informed the watch is no longer available. On another occasion, an initial response was followed by yet another non-answer and the subsequent email went unreturned. I gave up on emailing them.

Called them once and the guy was very nice and helpful. Originally I was going to trade in my 116613 and they said up to 8700 and when I spoke to them, they wanted to know if my watch was still stickered after I told them I bought it new a year ago and wore it lightly. Still, good phone skills.

Went on the website the other day, a 116613 is now up to 7800.

I think OP's complaints about lack of return calls, saying the watch would be shipped when it wasn't sucks. I experienced the same frustration when I seriously considered buying two watches and never got an answer to very simple, oft-repeated questions.

Paul is definitely a great guy. We have met Carol (his wife) and Joel (their COO). They have an area in which there are several customer service reps with nice cubicles. They do a lot of business. I think Forbes reported something like $14 million in revenue in 2014. Probably something like $20 million in revenue this year I'm guessing. They are busy in that office. The phone reps are on the phone all day and are also answering emails. We saw that they get excited when deliveries are made... quite a large number of watches get shipped to them every day for them to review on video to ensure accurate documentation of what was received. Because they sell so much and are so busy, it is probably easy to forget that they are super busy and an individual client may not get the attention he or she wants because of the business factor. I would be willing to guess that the reason for not getting an answer to questions is probably because that watch was sold and a customer service rep thought he/she was too busy to answer those emails. I'm sure they would like to hear your comments and would look at it as a training opportunity to ensure that all of those emails get answered. It really is quite a first class operation. I can't say a single bad thing about Paul or Bob's watches. #thumbsup

I find it interesting.. We all know that they are in the business of purchasing and reselling watches, yet find fault at them trying to maximize their profits. If the deal doesn't work for you, so be it, no one is telling you that you must accept, there are plenty of other avenues to sell a Rolex which qualified buyers are plentiful, such as this forum.

I purchased my first Rolex from them. I found their prices to be inline with the market for the Sub I ended up purchasing. The transaction was seamless, really it went smoothly. I made one phone call and spoke to a salesman to ensure that the watch I wanted was in stock, and was assured it was. I proceeded to send funds and 2 days later the watch was delivered to my house, the delay was due to Fedex not Bobs, the watch was shipped the same afternoon I purchased. I was satisfied.

When I received the watch it was packaged well, and was in amazing condition. It was perfect in every way, not a single mark on it, looked like a safe queen.

I proceeded to remove the bracelet to verify the serial number and discovered what I expected to be an R series was actually a P series, a 14 year newer difference, same 16610 reference. I called Bob's to make them aware of the observation, as some people may find issue with this occurring to them. To me it was not a big deal, I wanted the older watch, but the year of production was a good year in my life, so I just chalked it up to fate. Value wise there wasn't any appreciable difference, since a P and an R when hand written sloppily can look fairly similar, I assumed a clerical error, no fraud or misrepresentation. The 2001 model would may retail for more then a 1987 anyway, if only by a few hundred dollars.

Since I plan to retain this watch for many years to come I an not concerned with the sales end of their operation. I will say that I would purchase from them again if I am in the market for an item that they have in stock.

Not affiliated with them in any way beyond being a customer. I am adding that due to my low post count and new member status, I know how skeptical people can be. I am on the East coast as well. I just felt that sharing my experience may be beneficial for someone who may be considering a purchase from them.

Me personally, unless I find out the person is trying to scam me, if I slightly overbid on something out of my own misjudgment , I'll honor my bid.

Regulation and light polish IMO should have highly been expected in that bid. Sure, they may have a slight argument that it's missing a link (how much can it possibly be?).

It's a pretty standard question to ask if the bracelet has full links. I wonder why they didn't ask? I never purchased a watch without asking that question. So in my humble opinion the polish and regulation should have never been brought up. If they are going to knit-pick you to death over a link so be it. I think they should be more professional than that and honor their bid.

To call and try to finagle $450 out of you now is completely out of line. Again, in my humble opinion.

I read your post as an insinuation that, since he had a nice experience there, he's somehow in cahoots with Bob's. If I misunderstood, my apologies.

There's a big difference between P and R besides year of production. The P serial Sub came with SEL (solid endlinks). While the P and R are both reference 16610 a watch dealer should have caught this upon inspection.

You are 100% correct! I just reviewed the images from the sale, and indeed Bobs displayed the images of the actual watch, as there are a few polishing marks that I notice now that make it unique. I failed to notice the SELs and the R serial discrepancy, but it is there...Still not a deal breaker for me, nor turns me off from future sales.

Im fairly certain that whomever posts their listings, and may not necessarily be a watch enthusiast, must be the cause of the oversight... I suppose if it mattered thats what the 3 day return policy is for...

Mind you this watch was as described in my email and pictures but the $800 deduction from their email quote for a light polish, timing and (maybe) a crystal was more than I was willing to accept.
I asked them if the brand new never worn bracelet was worth something since they were also deducting for a missing box and paperwork (this is a 24 year old 16234) and they said no the brand new (literally never worn) bracelet and end links added no value.
So I'm on email hold right now while I ask them if they "seriously?" have no means of returning watches when customers don't accept their offer.

I think we have all been there with these types of company's. I don't deal with them anymore. They do take it to the extreme trying to make 30% plus on a used piece is absurd, 10% is what I feel grey market sellers should be making.

I offered to pay, I did not once even imply they should just overnight my watch back at their expense.
They have had my FedEx account number since yesterday morning. I never once asked for free shipping, but things are now getting a bit ridiculous.
I Initially told them to return my watch and offered to give them a credit card over the phone and also provided my FedEx account via email.
They had sent me a FedEx label to get my watch there so I ASSUmed FedEx was their preferred method of shipping and they could use my account for the return. (simple enough right?)
Her hangup right now is they want me to log into UPS as a guest and generate my own UPS label to me.
The way I see things now is they're just making me jump through another hoop (UPS) to get my watch back and purposely make things more difficult.

I asked them if the brand new never worn bracelet was worth something since they were also deducting for a missing box and paperwork (this is a 24 year old 16234) and they said no the brand new (literally never worn) bracelet and end links added no value.
So I'm on email hold right now while I ask them if they "seriously?" have no means of returning watches when customers don't accept their offer.
Just curious, but what was their initial quote on your 16234?

I hope everything works out for you bud. I feel your pain.
