First time Rolex owner here.

I’ve always liked watches and was recently looking at buying my first luxury watch. I was told “buy a Rolex, anything else will just put you a step further away from having one”. I followed that advice (although very nearly bought an Omega Moon Watch!) and am now the proud owner of a 2021 Air-king which I absolutely love!

I did try to get one retail, but all of my local AD’s wouldn’t even put me on the list without me going in- which of course isn’t possible in lockdown as they’re all closed! So I paid slightly over retail for a 2021 unworn watch from a local dealer via Chrono24.

Very happy! 😆
