1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Rolex and inexpensive don't go together. Check out timezone.com Sales Corner forum for best used Rolex deals.

    A Rolex properly adjusted should be accurate to within minute a month. For what the service costs are I would keep on them until they adjusted it properly. Nice watches but not very practical to own because of the repair costs unless one has very deep pockets. They are machines that need to be cleaned and lubed every 5yrs or so. Even jeweled quartz movements should be serviced. Mine will likely never be serviced unless it stops working. I have a Huer that has stopped working and the local watch repairman won't even give me a quote on it.
    Buy a nice fake and throw it away when it quits.

    Pat is correct. Roles is not noted for keeping good time. Rolex is flash and looks and if you want accurate time, there are lot of other watches and still look great.

    Ok enough with the Rolex bashing. If you don't own one, then shut up. For those that own them and complain about accuracy, please sell it and go buy a Timex. It's an automatic watch, it will NOT hold 1 sec of accuracy over the 20+ years that you own it!

    For the others that compare it to Tag, Invicta, etc I am going to compare your K80's and MX2000s to Baykals! Stop comparing watches that are nowhere near each other in price. I too have both nice watches and cheaper ones and no day in hell do the cheaper ones stand a chance next to the nice ones. Value, yes, but comparing an Invicta to a Rolex is like pulling you know what from you know where.

    Besides he wasn't asking for your opinion on the watch, he was looking for one.

    Invicta? Had one and the dials fell off after a year. Your miles may vary.

    I am indeed looking for a Rolex, Breitling or Omega for various reasons...
    I have a Tag and a Bvlgari, and also a couple timex runners watches that work great....But, still looking for one of the other three...

    Once again, I'm looking for something on a little lesser price scale, with more wear, or even needs some repair...I don't want to buy something internetwise that I can drive 5miles to my local Rolex dealer and get for the same price...

    Lots of emails, and waiting for some pics, but no $ spent yet....

    thanks for the contacts....still looking

    Wanting a inexpensive Rolex is like a buying a Luxury Yugo

    I thought all Yugos were luxurious, most cars have 4 6 or 8 cylinders...3 sounds pretty exotic to me..



    Anyhow, when I say inexpensive I mean relative to a mint condition model at retail, not compared to a seiko....I'm fully aware of what they cost, and am prepared to buy one, I'm just more interested in price than condition at this particular point in time.

    I have carried a Belair Quartz pocket watch for over 15 years. Replace the battery about every 2 years and it keeps perfect time. Cost me less than fifty bucks when I bought it. Never could get used to wearing a wrist watch.. Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Bluzman98,

    Great minds think alike. Got the same exact Invicta 2 weeks ago on shopnbc.com for $75. Now I have a blue & black.

    My Submariner sits in the safe since it's braclet let go, and it needed a restoration which would probably cost $1K....so I wear a titanium Citizen eco-drive whick keeps perfect time and has the best braclet I've ever seen...

    My Rolex sets in the safe. I stop wearing any watch when I retired 8 years ago. I gave it to my son. After a few months, he gave it back. Said he needed a more accurate time piece. Go figure!
