I've seen one of the clients I work with wearing a PAM, a Patek Philip, and multiple different Rolex's. Dude's a 28 year old analyst and I doubt he's making even near six figures. They've all got to be fakes, but he sure does love watches.

SC1, I had been gifted two Rolexes and a Cartier Rolex gifted to me when I was making 30k and driving a used Prius. So get a life and stop worrying about whether what other people have is real or not. You sound bitter.

Haha, nice. I’ve met a few dudes who are also horophiles. It’s a really awesome way to bring people together.

Used to. Unfortunately I’m on my own now. Smartwatches & activity trackers are clearly winning in our office.

A co-worker got me into watches in the first place. Always trying to spread the good word forward

I’ve met a few who are interested in watches, but never to my extent. I go to weekly GTG and stuff. However, my new project is with a financial services in NYC, will keep a lookout.

But my first day I will probably wear my smart watch to see the team dynamic

If you are dealing from mgmt and front office folks, you will probably see some nice watches on their wrists. If it’s mid/back office/ops, probably not.

My dad is planning to have his Rolex Day-Date platinum serviced. He bought it 10 years ago. Retailer he bought it from is no longer in business/recognized by Rolex.

Any advice or insight on this or the process?

Seems straight forward, but tbh, I would rather take it to a Rolex service center (in NYC) instead of going through a retailer.
