Rolex in Athens

Greetings fellow TRFís.
Iím currently in Athens and despite my desire not to to relate everything to the big R, I wanted to ask if you know where I might find new/used Rolex watches. Iím looking for a SS 36 DJ... is it best to look for it at the AD or a certain boutique? Share your experience.

In you're near central Athens there are various ADs in the immediate area in Kolonaki (around Syntagma and the National Garden). I haven't walked into a Rolex store in Greece in a few years, so I can't give you a sense of what inventory is like these days. Serkos is nice - I believe there is a Rolex boutique and another AD just down the street from it as well. In short, you could probably check out a few stores without sacrificing too much vacation time.

Rolex Hellas S.A.

Tel: 210-3611062

Rolex Hellas S.A
Kolokotroni str. (Nr. 3 I think)

5-10 min walk from your hotel.

Lots of DJ's, some TT SkyD's

These are no AD's, they're actually Rolex owned stores.

That's right! I forgot there are two separate Rolex stores right in the area.

Enjoy your stay in Athens. If you walk around Monastiraki (from where you're staying: 5 minute walk in the opposite direction of the stores above) make sure to grab a gyro from Sabbas. It's right next to the more popular Thanasis but much better. My family has an apartment right around there -- use to go to Sabbas every day for a quick bite during my summers there as a teen.

Feel free to PM me if you want any local travel tips while you're in Athens.
