Anyone else getting a little Rolex fatigue? Every year seems to be small incremental changes to watches that I’ll never be able to get due to their distribution model. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still very much love to get a classic model at some point, but it’s just been getting tiring knowing every year it’s small changes to the same watches and I won’t be able to get them anyways. And when they do push the envelope (OPs 2 years ago), they get discontinued 2 years later and pump prices up…

Feel ya OP, no attractive paths to get to a popular model. Either play the game of a snobby AD or pay out to a well known reseller (or roll your dice with a shady one). Glad I pulled the trigger a few year before secondhand sport watches sold above sticker. But unless things change (doubtful), I’m one and done with Rolex

Not enough characters to get all my thoughts down, and I admittedly may be biased since I have had major struggles to purchase, but man it’s getting tiring. Still want a classic at some point though lol

It’s how I feel about Porsche.

Yup pretty spot on. The 911 is cool but not worth the money imo. Porsche to me is on the same level as bmw/Audi/Benz etc. but I get why people like them

That’s the beauty! Rolex isn’t tissot or swatch, incremental upgrades are great! Look at Porsches or land cruisers even the iPhone! That’s how you perfect a product and the smaller changes help it stay modern
