Rolex Magazines

Hi all

Since we can't really get the watches we want, I started collecting the Rolex magazines instead, as of right now I'm missing issue #8 (explorer 2) and apparently its just as hard to get now. I reached out to a few ADs and they're all out (I know its been out a while). Would anyone have one for sale here? Thanks!

Mods move if this is wrong place.

Got all of them. Too bad they stopped issuing the magazines. I enjoyed collecting them. 8 issues in total.

That's crazy! Everything branded 'Rolex' nowadays fetches crazy premium. The issues were freely available at the AD, I got one with one of my purchases, then I asked if they have other available. They had to check in their storage and have me 3. The rest I purchased on ebay for approx 30-40 USD per issue. The first one featuring Daytona was most expensive... Now the price seems crazy considering they were free!

Yep itís totally crazy. Iíve probably given away all 8 at various times as I had quite a few. Still got the full 8. I went to the Ryder Cup in Paris two years ago and the Rolex tent were giving out loads in French.
