Anyone from Omaha, Ne.

I'm thinking of selling my 114060 to fund a 14060m problem is, I have never seen one in person. Kinda difficult for me to make the decision. I would like to meet up with someone who has a 14060/14060m 4 liner. Talk watches have a beer or coffee.

I can't help you but you are right in trying to feel it first. Totally different watches.
Personally I would not do that trade

Agree ^^^

The look and feel are very different. I think youíre on the right track wanting to try one on first. You will have a much better idea if itís the right swap if you can somehow find a 14060 to try on.

The good news if you can and you purchase one for a fair price it shouldnít be hard to move.

Hi! I’m from Omaha, but don’t have a 14060 for ya to try. I’ve owned one, and they’re amazing. Completely different feel from the 114060. So much lighter. Some people hate the older bracelets, but honestly I always enjoyed them.

Currently, my only Rolex is a BLNR. I’ve recently paired down my collection a bit...but I’ve owned several different Rolex watches over the last few years. IF you have any questions about them, let me know!

Have a good one, bud!

I got a buddy in that area, with a 5 digit. Not sure he's willing to meet up. I could ask?

Thanks for the reply

That would be great if you could ask! I would understand if he didn't want to meet, there are a lot of crazy people out there, but I'm not one of them. I'm a project manager for my Dads construction company he's been in business over 40 years, we work with omahas most well known builders and developers.

I've been there a few times, but never purchased from them. Gunderson's is just a few blocks from Malashocks. Omaha has only 2 Rolex AD!

Ha ha, yeah and unfortunately Omaha AD's are still of the mindset that you have to be an old man in a nice suit and tie to afford a Rolex. I walked into Gunderson's a while back in jeans, a hoodie, and my 4 year old daughter with me. I was wearing my BLNR and had my Polar EXPII along to see if they had shoulderless springbars to fit. I had one bar acting up.

It took FOREVER to get someone to even give me the time of day. Once the salesman realized I had two Rolex watches with me, they were suddenly all too happy to help. Here's the kicker though, they didn't even have springbars! They said they could send the watch to their watchmaker in Sioux City to be fitted. You've gotta be kidding me...

I left and went to Borsheims (not a Rolex dealer) and their watchmaker was able to track down a springbar for me.

This might have to happen! I've got a few buddies that enjoy watches. It certainly wouldn't have to be Rolex only. In other cities, these meetups often happen at an AD, but I honestly doubt any in Omaha would even entertain the idea, as crazy as that may sound. We could always meet for drinks or coffee as you mentioned in the original post!

Iíve used the Gundersons in Sioux Falls. They sent my watches to Sioux City. Very slow turn around time. Prices were very fair. I think they keep their one watchmaker pretty busy. Staff were friendly enough in Sioux Falls. One guy in particular, quite knowledgeable on vintage too.

Oh yeah, I'm sure the store in Sioux City is fine....I just thought it was laughable that they don't have a watchmaker on staff locally here in Omaha, and that my watch would need to be sent there to be fitted for spring bars. Maybe that's normal....not sure. I just wouldn't think so.

Hello fellow Omaha dwellers. I just found this thread. I recently got the bug to purchase my first luxury watch, and would love to chat with some likeminded folks.
