Lurker to New Member.....that was easy

Greetings from Western Canada. After reading many threads thought this is a fine forum to join and learn all I can about the world of Rolex. So as I quickly learned reading and confirmed after visiting the only local AD to purchase looks like I'll be waiting for some time. Was interested in a SUB, Explorer 2 or Milguass in SS. Guess time will tell......

Welcome to the forum! Learned so much here tho it might start you on a very slippery slope.

Iím from Alberta where thereís more than 1 AD but it still took me 6 months to buy a SS. It can be done, I suggest starting with choosing the right associate to help you.

Same upsell try everywhere-canít blame them and tbh I like that my SA tries.

I was offered several SS models (just not the models I was after) on my visit 2 weeks ago so things are slightly improving on that front-oil, jobs and business outlook on the other hand......

Best of luck and stay safe everyone!
