Is Rolex An Age Thing?

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm 37 and haven't caught the bug yet. I don't have anything against Rolex, they clearly make very good watches (you can't explain the success purely as being down to marketing). I don't have anything in my collection that cost me over £1k, so they're really not the kind of watch I'm into. If the SD was a price I could see my way into (or the Explorer 1), I'd probably try one out, but they're not, so I haven't.

Rappers love them? Oh dear .... I must throw all mine away how could I have been so stupid as to buy things that rappers love?

Don't be silly John. :nono:

All you have to do is become a Rapper. Then everything will be ok.

Yeah I go through stages of liking them and then not again. Its the status symbol thing, because I dislike show-offs and even though they make quality watches and I really lust after a Sea Dweller I just occasionally go through stages I see people who I generally think are with Sub Mariners or something similar strapped to their wrists.

I was in London & the '' seemed to be wearing Marina Militaires or fakes thereof.

Hi! My name is.. (what?) My name is.. (who?)

Hi! My name is.. (huh?) My name is.. (what?)

My name is.. [scratches] JoT

Ahem.. excuse me!

Can I have the attention of the forum

for one second?

Hi kids! Do you like Rolex? (Yeah yeah yeah!)

Wanna see me wear a Daytona on each one of my wrists? (Uh-huh!)

Wanna copy me and do exactly like I did? (Yeah yeah!)

Try 'cid and get fecked up worse that my Visa? (Huh?)

My Deepsea’s dead weight, I'm tryin to get my wrist straight

but I can't figure out which Rolex girl I want to impregnate (Ummmm..)

And Jase said, "JoT your’e a Rolllster!"

Uh-uhhh! "So why's your dial red? Man it’s a Monster!"

Well since age twelve, I've felt like a Rolex Sub

Cause I hung my original Sub from the top bunk with a Toshi

Got pissed off and ripped a Rolex off

And smacked the Alpha so hard I knocked the time backwards like Vostok

I smoke a fat pound of grass and fall on my wallet

faster than a fat bitch who sat down on a toilet

C'mere slut! (JoT, wait a minute, that's my girl dog!)

I don't give a feck, Rolex sent me to piss the world off!

Having grown up in a pretty hard working family, the Rolex has always been a watch you buy when your in your 50s.

I remember uncles saying "Get a good job, buy a house then buy a rolex". This was probably the thinking back inthe day, when material things had to be worked for. Times have changed and now maybe people have higher incomes so they can afford the flash watches.

Working in a IT Sales environment for around a year, its almost the standard to have a rolex and the mont blanc regardless of age. I guess if you have one maybe means your doing well in the job? but I do have to agree it is a status symbol.

Personally, I try to avoid brand names etc but I always get sucked in. As a young person brand names and bling is sometimes how people judge you. (try going to a indian wedding with a timex)

Doesn't that mean they keep them on, the same as their socks? :ph34r:

Sir Malcolm Campbell was the first "sports" celebrity to endorse Rolex ... he wasn't a rapper, IT professional or a porn star :D

Didnt really think much about them (or many watches) before i joined this forum, the only opinon i had of rolex was formed when one of my mates got a rolex for his 21st, it was nice, but gold and a bit "old manish", i thought at the time but after seeing pics on here id love a rolex, especially an LV or sub with the red writing. The only thing i dont like however, is the word "superlative" being on the dial of alot of models....
