It's raining here, again, as usual, so it seems to be a good day to sit at the puter and create some hate, discontent and turmoil so our highly paid mods can earn their keep. :lol: Actually, I would prefer that the homage haters either stay away or hold in their vitreol but I've been here long enough to realize that someone won't be able to control himself. :crying:

First some caveats:
(1) I abhor fakes. When I found that I had a fake Montblanc I took it to the range and used it for target practice. Another good purpose for a gun.
(2) I've paid my dues to Rolex, I have 5 of them and my wife has one and we may get more.
(3) I've heard the cliches about slave labor.

TooDah, here it is !

I paid $13.59 for this including shipping from China. I've had it two days and it is keeping nearly perfect time and working very well in every respect. I was playing with the date when this picture was taken so that's why the date is off. I think it is fascinating that a watch this good can be made and shipped for that price.
Let the hate begin.

GETS, I kind of wish I knew why I have 5 Rolexes, I guess for the same reason I have about 70 Accutrons and various other watches, because I want them. I wish I could give a better answer but I can't. It might have something to do with the fact that there was a time in my life when I couldn't even afford a Timex so there is some feeling of accomplishment.
I think I wanted the Soki because I was intrigued that a watch like that could be purchased for that amount. I wish you could experience how well it works, amazing for the price.

As to whether Rolexes are "over priced", that is a whole new subject and a whole new way to start some hate,
discontent and turmoil for the mods to deal with but, in my never humble opinion, I don't see how anybody could argue
that they aren't overpriced. My wife has three watches including a Seiko which cost less than $100 and which keeps
better time than her Rolex and I have a 40 year old Accuquartz which keeps better time than any of my Rolexes.

ULACKFOCUS, wow, that's some golden parachute you have !

You've been participating here for almost 5 years and you think it's a new topic to call rolex a overpriced watch? I think you're trying to accomplish something here, but I don't see it happening. You've purchased 5 Watches that you don't get the value in? I find it hard to be that ignorant. You know you love rolex, stop. You're trying to show the $13 or whatever it was garbage you purchased is worth it. Good for you. I'm sure the watch does keep time. Is that even remotely the point in buying a fine timepiece? Of course not. So just wear it, until it breaks tomorrow, or the next, or the next year. Because it's garbage, open up the back and see for yourself
