I am. Joined this forum a while ago to just learn all things 'Rolex'. I don't currently own a Rolex but am planning (and saving) for a GMT Master II ceramic for my 50th birthday next Sept. I was going to buy a SubDate LV but the GMT is... shall we say.... less popular, plus I like the idea of the 2nd time zone as I tend to travel abroad 3 or 4 times a year. Not sure if it'll be brand new from my local AD or second user from someone off here or the other Rolex forums.

welcome.

Welcome to the forum, Kevin!

There's a good strong following from the UK here, I'm sure you'll bump into plenty during your time here. I'm currently based in Derby and Sheffield

Hi Kevin

Welcome to the forum.
I joined a little while ago. I like the fact that everyone appreciates Rolex and also welcomes other waych brands as well.
I am looking at getting a Sub possibly v early next year. in the mean time last Saturday I went and bought myself an IWC MK XVI Pilots watch to tide me over.

Have fun and jump in and enjoy the forums.

Nigel

Sorry for being to precise, but England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The British Isles refers to the United Kingdom & Eire (and all the surrounding islands like the Hebrides and the Channel Islands).

I am in the north east of England. Just joined today as I am saving up for a Rolex. Not sure which one I want yet. I am just learning about the brand and checking out the Rolex website. I am really excited!

Hi, I'm from Southampton and signed up today. I have a 1998 Sub date and have just bought a stainless Datejust / Jubilee from my father. Took it in today to have it serviced and should (hopefully have it back before Christmas).
Looking forward to seeing how good it looks, My dad had it 20 years, it's seen some wear and never been serviced. Should have taken some before and after pics..

Big M and I are up in the North East of England. Neither of us belong here.

Although she strongly denies it "M" is an Essex girl and me well but for some reason that I'm not really sure about I always seem to have ended up back here.
