Rookie question for the group :) .. How does one get on the Rolex list? I am graduating from business school next year and thinking of getting one to mark the occasion. I’ve no idea how to go about it!

For mine you just tell the ad and 5 years later you’ll get a call

Go to an authorized dealer! You don’t have to suck up to them or anything but you’ll likely have better results if you have a conversation about what you like, what you don’t like, why you’re buying it, other watches you have in your collection, etc. They should have models to try on in the store. You can ask the associate how long they think it’ll take for the one you want to come in. Give them your info, take theirs, and then swing by every once in a while to check in and see if there is an update.

The reality is that when a watch comes into the store, they need to decide who they’re going to call from the list of people they have waiting. It’s not really a FIFO list - if you come across as a nice guy and they remember you, then you’re more likely to get a call over someone else.

Thank you. I’m a gal btw :)

Luckily for you, the market is softening and a lot of people seem to be getting “the call” lately. I’m one of them. Show up, express interest, follow up often, be realistic and stay patient.

Thank you! This is the plan for the weekend :)

There’s no official list. Each AD maintains (or doesn’t maintain) their own.

Thank you!

Apparently the authorized dealer in Maui is super fast

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide. My heart is telling me PHR, my mother in law (an HRBP) is telling me to go with SHRM, as it’s more widely recognized, more established and a larger network in general. I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

My wedding is making me miserable. We ended up choosing a city / venue that I’m not super thrilled with (it’s just not giving me aesthetic I want) and it’s turning out to be 3x expensive (part of rationale for choosing as it would be cheaper). I just hate my wedding and don’t know what to do. It’s too late to switch locations (we’ve just paid too many deposits). I know it shouldn’t matter etc but I’m still upset for not going with another city. Anybody ever felt similar?

Today I bought a black Tudor BB58 today from AD on the NATO only to take advantage of the $500 chase sapphire reserve deal expiring 12/31/20

I rly wanted the bracelet but this is all they had.

Honestly Id probably buy and use it more on rubber strap but felt like I should have bracelet to be complete set.

Should I sell it now at cost and wait for one on a bracelet to be available or keep and try and find a used bracelet for cheap ($850 retail just for bracelet)?
