First Rolex AD Call Purchase - Wimbledon Datejust 41 馃憫

It was a rainy Thursday in the office. I was working, minding my own business when then, a strange landline number calls me.

It was the Rolex AD that I put an expression of interest for 3 months prior that I forgot about. I've put down an expression of interest for many other ADs and had one here for a blue dial datejust for 4 to 5 years with no response at all. I enquired about the Wimbeldon on my birthday in October and didn't have any expectations.

I have bought watches off Swiss Concepts (AD) in the past and have been offered a white Oyster Perpetual years ago but didn't commit as I didn't have money after buying 3 watches off them 馃槀.

Fast forward 6 years after that initial call, I got offered to buy this Wimbledon on Jubilee with smooth bezel which was the exact dial combo I wanted.

I then rang the bro to tell him and he said JUST DO IT!! I then rang the missus to ask if I can buy this for the retail of around $13k AUD and she said do whatever you want 馃グ.

After this, I got offered the 2 tone Rolex Explorer which I passed on, but ended up getting of my brother anyways 馃槆.

Congratulations! That is an awesome pickup. I am

Sure you鈥檒l wear with pride.

Very cool that you said no when you wanted to and yes when you wanted to and still ended up with a watch you were seeking rather than a consolation prize. Congratulations are in order!

Congratulations 馃嵕

Congrats my friend! That is a great looking watch, enjoy 馃憫

So u have a purchase history and they offered u a Wimbledon. Hopefully u get a stainless steel sports watch soon. Btw in Australia is it common to walk in to purchase Rolex?

That鈥檚 a sick watch man! Glad you got your preferred combination, wear it in good health! 馃憦馃徑

Yea the purchase history helped but I previously had my name down for a datejust for 4 years so I just got lucky with this configuration.

I don't think we can walk in and buy in Aus unfortunately. Not a thing for a long time.

Congratulations on a beautiful watch! Absolutely awesome 馃憣 Smart move calling Management for the greenlight! Always wise Enjoy 馃槈!

Very nice, enjoy. I love Rolex watches, but don't enjoy dealing with the mostly arrogant AD's.

Congratulations ! What a beautiful watch 馃槆

Smooth bezel for the win. Congrats!!

Is the photo of the watch in the box the same one that's in the wrist shots? They look completely different colours!
