I don't want to offend anyone but to me, Rolex watches have always seemed greatly overpriced and over valued. I mean, is a $5,000 Rolex really 10 times better than a $500 model from another another maker of quality watches or 20 times better than a $250 one? When I say better, I mean in terms of accuracy, reliability, and endurance. I highly doubt it. Personally, I would never pay more than $200 these days for a new watch and that would be really stretching the budget. $100 would probably be as high as I would go when I can get a reliable and highly accurate quartz model for $25 to $50 that would last for years. On antique or Vintage models, it's a different story of course. I'm talking about new.
