Hi everyone. Curious to hear takes on this. On waitlist to buy Rolex GMT (should be getting call soon🤞🏼) and have the cash ready for the purchase, but wondering if anyone has financed their watches when purchasing to minimize a large cash outflow? And if so, if they’d do it again. Thanks

If you have the cash on hand and can get 0% financing I would do it. Plop the cash into the market now that it’s down and profit.

Think it definitely makes financial sense to finance even with the cash on hand if it’s 0%/no additional fees

Yes I’ve financed a watch purchase in November 2021. Finish paying it off in august 0% interest. I could have paid it all up front but I’ve been using the money to DCA into stocks and crypto

Open a new credit card. It’s better than financing imo if you can get the 0% promotional offer for 12-15 months. Plus you get points and the bonus for opening a new card and spending a certain amount

I was worried about the case thickness of this piece, but wanted to see it in person and put it on. When I put it on in person, it didn’t feel as thick as expected and wore comfortably. Haven’t taken it off in over a week. My Sub is taking a break for now.

So a watch that would be useful to me and I suspect many in this bowl is a chronograph that measures in 0.1 hour units for lawyers who bill time. All that really needs to be changed is the indices on the minutes register. Does anyone know if this has ever been attempted, either by a manufacturer or by a mod shop?

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