I guess this is an unexpected unboxing post. The first is that I didn’t expect to get this watch so quickly, as a new client with no purchase history at all buyer, only waited 19 days to get it, and I was once ready to queue up for two years, ah; second, the original also did not intend to post, buy the watch the night of the photo happened to use the astronaut watch stand, and the next day at noon saw the news breaking news Shenzhou 13 successfully launched into space, the three astronauts behind the successful stay on the space station. And the next day at noon saw the major news breaking news Shenzhou 13 successfully launched into space, three astronauts behind also successfully moved into the sky and space station, really too let people feel proud! Since it is such a coincidence and such a good thing, coupled with other recent happy events (1. As a classical music fan, the Boston Symphony Orchestra finally met again after 18 months, with a reopening concert featuring the 89-year-old John Wiliams and the best violinist in the world today, Anne-Sophie Mutter. (As a Mutter fan, I went to all three performances and got Mutter’s autograph and photo, which was a real treat. 2.) The Boston Marathon was back on, and I completed my first marathon, which was a real cause for celebration! So just a post to remember!
It is said that to make something meaningful you need a story, so I’ll tell you more about the whole process of buying a watch. I’m not a watch fan or collector, and I’ve paid little attention to it before, but I was also under the influence of CHH’s various unboxings, and as I was over 30, I felt I could really use a better watch, so in February 2020 I asked under the Prominence Watch God’s ‘Practical Choice Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5164/A So in February 2020, I asked a question under the Prominence Watch God’s ‘Practical Choice Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5164/A’ thread, and received enthusiastic replies from the gods and several other forum members, and checked it out myself. After a year, I went to a watch shop in February this year, and chose my birthday to choose a watch, and finally chose the Rolex Blue Face Log.
The story is that there must be some ups and downs, before the AD said about 3 months watch will arrive, then think about three months can also wait, so still quite happy to pay the deposit. The AD was very polite and apologized to me, saying that a month ago a watch did come in but it was given to someone else and that the next one would be mine. He then explained that the watch market was crazy and they were running out of stock, although I was not happy about it, I did see that the counter was empty and there were quite a few watches in February. When I got back, I checked online and realised that this market is really crazy… I think it’s a good thing I paid the deposit before, at least I don’t have to worry about going to the grey market to buy it at a high price.
The story is that two ups and downs are not enough. One day in August, I came home to find a letter in my mailbox with a cheque inside. This… It was a clear breach of contract and the return of the deposit should have been accompanied by 6 months of interest on the deposit. I called the next day with the same explanation that they were no longer accepting deposit, but that I was still on their waiting list and should be arriving soon. It’s a good idea to believe you when things have come to this point. I found that there was a ‘Rolex Forums’ forum on the foreign side, which was also full of complaints about the watch market, and then I saw a post from someone who said that a Rolex Boutique had just opened in Boston, and that the supply of watches was okay. After that, I didn’t go there because I was travelling and I didn’t care too much after I came back.
On the last Sunday of September, I had a brunch with a friend and it just happened to be nearby, so I thought I’d go in and have a look around, there were indeed more watches in this shop, most of them were women’s watches and some men’s watches. I talked to the AD about the watches I was interested in, including the Blue Face Log and the Blue and Black GMT (the GMT’s blue and black is my favourite colour combination, and I fell in love with it right away, but the GMT was too popular, and the online discussion and secondary market prices made me not hold any hope, but since I asked, I said so), and then talked about the twists and turns of my previous watch purchase. After listening to my story, I felt that the AD seemed to have become more serious, knowing that at the beginning, after listening to the watch I was interested in, he directly said that the logbook would probably need to wait for many months, and then even the explorer was super popular, the GMT was even more impossible. I told him I lived in Boston and worked in Boston and it was only 10 minutes away. Then I mentioned my workplace and occupation to make sure I was a local person. I left my contact details and the AD showed me around the shop briefly, so I left. Since the salesman said they don’t take deposits and don’t have a waiting list (who believes that?), I thought it was pointless to stay any longer. I thought there was no point in staying any longer, so I didn’t hold out much hope and waited.
The final turn of events was after the 14th noon, the AD contacted me, and now (actually, two days ago…) I have some great news that should put a huge smile on your face. We just received a GMT black and blue on a jubilee bracelet this morning. We can certainly wait for the Datejust 36 or if you have interest in this model you can put it on your wrist as early as you can get here. I thought that GMTs were very difficult to get and that you would have to wait two or three years to get one. Well, of course you do. I have to mention one detail, I told him that I didn’t have time right now and that I would have to wait until around 3:30 pm. This situation is a bit different from the description on the Internet, but it is not usually reserved. I thought I’d better be safe and make an appointment for 4pm. The AD said he was very grateful for the work I was doing – saving cancer patients – so he felt he had to let me buy the watch I wanted as a token of his appreciation for our work. To be honest, I was a bit flattered, as we usually have the occasional patient or someone we have interacted with who will make a few remarks, but it was a bit unexpected to encounter such a person buying a watch. So I can understand and thank them for letting me get my watch so quickly! I could only give a few more details about the job and then I made a few remarks… And it caused me to forget to take out my phone to take pictures of the watch out of the box later …… Good thing I didn’t forget to tell AD not to forget my blue dial DateJust as I was leaving ……
I’ve been talking too much for a while now, so I’m finally ready for the official unboxing!
The Fake Rolex GMT-Master II, or Greenwich II, has a dual time zone (or triple time zone) as its main function, which is just about as useful to me as a dual time zone. The original GMT was designed and launched in 1955 by Rolex and Pan Am, and the current model II was introduced in 1982. The red and blue circle pepsi is definitely the hottest at the moment, but I prefer the blue and black to the red and blue, not only is the blue and black my favourite colour, but the red would feel too flirty to me, while the blue and black colour scheme would look more understated and cooler to me. The blue and black ring is commonly known as Batman, but here’s a little tidbit, when I told AD that this was the batman I wanted, AD told me that the nickname of the five baht chain was Batgirl… Here are a few pictures of Batgirl and Batman, what do you like to call them…
