I second that. My family has purchase 3 Rolexs from them over the last couple years and all have been a positive experience. I live about 20 minutes from them.

Default You don't always get what you pay for.

I have a rolex like the one you are talking about. I compaired my watch to the one for sale on ebay. I would say that watch is a fake. On the edge of the band it should be very smooth and solid, the ebay watch appears not to be solid nor smooth. The watch case where the band attaches does not appear to be solid and smooth ether. beware!!!

A new rolex should be something very special to reward yourself for a job well done. Don't cheapen the experience by trying to cut corners. Be proud that you have meet your mildstone or goal and go to your local jeweler and spend your money locally. That is how you made your money, people spent thier local money with you. It is a great experience, I will never forget my first Rolex. It only cost a little more to go first class.

God Bless You and Yours

13% off is a very fair deal, if you want something cheap go get some other brand that won't be worth anywhere near what you paid or it in the future. Rolex dealers are monitored from what I understand and have strict limitations on discounting the product much if at all and a retailer runs the risk of losing the line if they get caught discounting more than they are supposed to or allowed to.

I did the deal last night with a local authorized Rolex dealer in NJ. I received 15% off MSRP and should have it on my wrist by Friday. I'll post pics then.

At that discounted price,You got yourself a very good deal..
The mark up in Rolex's are not much at all for the jewelers.
The Rolex dealers make their money on Used Rolex trades and repairs.
