I saw this too. The crazy prices for recently discontinued models have gone down a lot, but still quite a bit above their original MRSP.

This was a forum started mainly for about the history and watches made by the RWC over the past 100 odd years. Now today Rolex watches have become little more than ££$$ÄÄ object things and nothing more. The history of the brand has gone, now its value this or that, and silly nicknames, or worring and fretting over the slightest scratch, or a second or so out of 86400 seconds in a day.

The headline isn't really borne out by the data, a bit like when you see "SALE! up to X% off". It usually turns out that the thing you actually want to buy is reduced by only a small fraction of X. Makes a great clickbait headline, though.

I thought these "investment" threads were against TRF rules. I would have thought grownups could research prices of watches themselves, but hey.

I would imagine that when prices stabilize and come back to normal and people can buy whatever models they want then discussions of prices will probably cease to exist. Itís no different than energy prices. Lots of other forums thatís a major topic of discussion but once they come back to normal it wonít be so much.

After years of threads pumping the rise, I enjoy some threads about the end of the insanity. Maybe in six months people can get the watch they want after some reasonable wait.

Why do you keep complaining and coming back here everyday then? I remember last year you wanted to retire. Must be a glutton for punishment. And what value do you add with constant complaining?

It's redundant, repetitive and I just feel bad for you cause it doesn't seem enjoyable. You can also stay clear of threads discussing this the same way you ask others to ignore your posts.

It's unfortunate that after 17 years, your TRF persona is now this, but hey, that's just my opinion.

I attached my rant against your bad-tempered attitude to the wrong post. So here is a correction.

Padi56 voices such an important perspective and reminder here about what brought us all (most) together in the first place: the history, Beauty, stories, engineering, an intrigue of watches.

All due respect, you have been here for a few years you should know who Peter is and what he brings to this community. He is 100% correct, as this forum should be used for gaining knowledge on the brand, and talk amongst friends rather than discussing prices and valuations all day.

Brother and this was a forum designed to talk about Corvettes and all of a sudden for whatever reason the price of the Corvettes doubled, tripled and in some cases even quadrupled I assure you it would be a major point of topic. Having said that I do look forward to never talking about prices again because that would mean theyíve come back to normal. You do get my point though. I also understand itís been beaten to death.

Itís a Rolex forum and we are going to ignore the greatest topic surrounding Rolex of the last three yearsóthe market. Makes sense.

Be nice to Peter. He's contributed more to this forum than you ever will, if you live to be 100.

He's earned his place, so read and learn or move on.

Completely agree Peter and after what I saw today, Rolex is nothing more than a commodity. Hope you are well

I agree with you. Few things are less attractive than narrow minded, single issue, old men. Who have no ability to listen and adapt. I understand, as an old man myself, that an excessive emphasis on money, rather than beauty, is one dimensional. And boring. But all the posts here addressing the value that others perceive in Rolex (in other words, what does the market think) are of much greater interest than the bad-tempered Ďstop talking about moneyĒ oldies with thousands of Ďwhat are you wearing?í posts. I expect an infraction warning. Or this to be deleted. But if the old lions donít give way to the young lions, the pride dies. And the youngsters on this forum have far more insight and colour to offer than the old complainers.
