Another birthday...another Rolex

Feb 26, 2020,11:59 AM

For my 37th birthday, my lovely surprised me with a new Rolex, and a hard-to-source one at that. So all is well, right?

But wait...

...there’s something fishy here. How did she get this submariner-GMT-master-2-no-date hybrid? I’ve never seen this rare timepiece in the wild, and I certainly have no pull with my local AD in order to get such a piece.

My two son’s show their anger and jealousy; they’ve both been on the waitlist for a ceramic daytona since before they were conceived

Once I take my new Rolex home, and give it a close inspection, I’m shocked to find out that it’s a FAKE, and doesn’t even have a movement 😱😱

Luckily, my wife was just using the birthday opportunity to remind to always buy the seller, and to not follow the hype.

The real birthday present was a new watch travel case.

I love her (my wife) to bits, and I look forward to another year with her and my two lovely sons.

Thanks for tolerating my lame humor

Happy birthday man and a fist pump to your wife! Must have taken ages to work through the Rolex reference books to come up with the design 😀

Would you prefer your filling as chocolate, sellita, valjoux or Rolex? ...  

The real gift 😍😍

The watch actually has a double-curved sapphire crystal in order to enhance visibility. Get it😉?

Happy Birthday Lankysudanese

Your watch looks like a franken watch with some parts sourced from this one: I like your sense of humor and your love for your family. Cheers! René ...

My wife tolerates my ‘hobbies’ much better than I tolerate her’s. I should take a page out of her book
