Is Italy short of Rolex

My daughter and family have gone on holiday to Italy. Iíve asked her to check out the Rolex stores and get me a Hulk or a Pepsi.
Does anybody think I stand a chance?

No chance whatsoever. Italy is full of tourists that are also dropping by the AD's browsing *hoping* to find a hot piece.

No. Just have them not waste their time at AD but rather just enjoy Italy.

A friend of mine bought an Explorer Polar from an AD in Florence a few months ago...he thought it was divine fate as he'd been looking for one for months and cracked the watch he was wearing that morning.

Every where I have gone recently including Dubai, Amsterdam, Seoul had all kinds of Rolexes forsale, just none of the quick flipping stainless models..When Rolex jacks the price up on the stainless flippers, there will be plenty to go around...

There’s tons of Rolex in Italy. Half the population has one on their wrist.
