Q&a – Rolex Watch

David asks…

What is the heaviest Rolex watch?

Which model of Rolex watches has the heaviest weight? The heaviest I’ve seen is 80 grams, are their any larger than that?

Dave answers:

I would think that the heaviest Rolex is an all gold Daytona. It weighs about 180 or so.

The biggest problem with all gold Rolex is the fact that the soft bracelet stretches due to the weight. The links must be replaced as the deform. That is why gold is a bad material for making watches.

The Invicta Subnoma. Stainless weighs over 300grams,

Sandra asks…

Does a real Rolex watch, seconds hand make a ticking sound?

I was told fake rolex‘s watch ticks. but real rolex‘s watches do not make any ticking sounds. please help!

Dave answers:

Honestly it depends on the particular model of Rolex. However all Rolex’s have mechanical movements, so you will definitely be able to hear a ticking sound, that’s not from the seconds hand, but from the pallet fork against the escape wheel as the watch is running. How loud it is probably depends on the particular model, i’m not a big Rolex guy so i’m not familiar with their lines, but if you put your ear up to any genuine mechanical watch, not just a Rolex, you’ll hear a ticking sound.

Turn up your volume and take a listen to this Haldimann watch.

George asks…

What Unique feature is use to Identify a Genuine Rolex Watch?

How can I know what to look for on a rolex to know if its real or fake.

Dave answers:

Search Yahoo answers – I saw someone else answer this, basically the second hand must rotate smoothly (not jerk once per second), and the gears must be blue (you have to open the case, there’s no window). The sites below have more detail.

Mark asks…

How i can find a nice replica Rolex watch for my husband? Good quality and good price.?

Good quality and good price, but i cant buy a true one.

Dave answers:

I suggest you buy it online shop would be better. There are a lot of styles for you to choose, you can find the right one you need. I have bought one Chanel on one shop online, they service very good, and give me good price, the most imporant thing is the watch is very very good quality, exactly the original one. I cant believe and all of my friends cant tell it is a fake watch.

Lizzie asks…

How much is my 1951 rolex watch worth?

Dave answers:

Does it Run? Is it the orginal movement/crystal? Is it mens or women’s?

James asks…

Watches – Poll?

Hi,
I want to buy a new watch, but I am not sure which one to get.

I am thinking about getting either a Rolex Submariner / GMT Master II, or a Cartier Roadster Chronograph (silver with black dial)

Which one do you think looks the best?

Thanks!

Dave answers:

The Rolex looks nicer, but have you considered Raymond Weil? They are well nice…

Q&a – Rolex Submariner Review

Mark asks…

Which of these watches is the best?

I’m shopping for a new watch and I narrowed it down to these three.

http://www.amazon.com/Orient-2ER00003B-Automatic-Diver-Stainless/dp/B0021AEE2C/ref=sr_1_13?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1297475775&sr=1-13

http://www.amazon.com/Croton-CA301158SSSL-Two-Tone-Automatic-Watchand/dp/B0018QEJ0C/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

http://www.amazon.com/Invicta-8928OB-Diver-Two-Tone-Automatic/dp/B000JQJS6M/ref=sr_1_2?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1297476807&sr=1-2

Yes, I basically want a watch that looks like a Rolex Submariner but isn’t a cheap quartz knockoff. I don’t really know much of anything about these brands but the reviews on the Orient one and others from that brand say that it’s incredibly accurate. And Invicta and Croton are apparently big brands? I don’t even… Also, I suppose this is really the wrong category for asking about horology, but oh well.

Dave answers:

I own the third choice. I also own an actual Rolex. My Invicta is often mistaken for a Rolex. No it is not as accurate as my Rolex. My Rolex is accurate to about 10 seconds a week. My Invicta is accurate to about 30 seconds a day. It does look nice, and is very rugged.

BTW: Most fake Rolex are automatic, not quartz. But they are so cheap they last only a month or so.

Q&a – Rolex Watch

Lisa asks…

i have a rolex watch but it seems to gain time of about 5 mins each month is this normal?

you would think a rolex would keep the time accurately ,but some people are telling me that is not true it does lose some time over periods.
its not good when you spend a lot of money on a watch that doesnt do its job. has anyone else had this problem or can they advise?

Dave answers:

Dan’s got the right idea, a specialist dealer would probably recommend a clean and do some minor adjustments … I have a Seiko cost me something like £93 when the Bond movie brought it out something like 20 plus years ago … And it only loses a second per month. Take it back.

Mary asks…

is it safe to use my rolex watch in Dublin?

i am planning to live in Dublin for a couple of years. I was wondering if it is safe to take my rolex daydatee II platinum with me as my daily watch. Do you think it’s safe?
I will be living some wear near the RCSI
and will be out fron 6 am til 10 pm

Dave answers:

Well, you might find life in Dublin a little different to your life in Fort Knox.

Q&a – Used Rolex Dealers

Sandy asks…

Hot Women Just Like Hot Cars? Is It Fair?

I have a friend who loves expensive sports cars (Porches, Ferraris, etc), but he can’ t afford one. So from time to time he’ll get dressed up in a nice suit, fake Rolex, go to an exotic car dealer and test drive a few. He tells them he’s a commodity broker in the financial district, they buy it everytime.

Anyway, he decided to try this concept out on hot chicks and it works! He gets all decked out, trades a little overtime at work for use of his boss’ Mercedes, and heads out to the clubs, where he makes his appearance as “Lance Simmons”, commodity broker (no I’m not kidding!). Suffice to say, he’s been known to take some of these fine ladys on a test drive (right to their place and he park’s them on their beds). Next morning he’s gone and never calls them. I’ve seen him do it a few times.

He would’ve never had a shot with girls like these before. He used to try and would get shot down everytime.

So, is this fair? Do you think these women are truly expecting anything more?

Dave answers:

You gotta remember that people base their decisions rationally. And that they do it based on “the whole picture”, which is derived by what they see in a person. Your friend must’ve been a 7 (an average joe), but after the rolodex, suit, and mercedez, he must’ve seemed like a 10.

The way it normally works is if a woman is a 10, can go out with anyone she wants. However, she will most likely pick a 10. The only way she will pick a 7 is if the male 7 brings a lot more to the relationship than a 10 would.

IE: (neglecting personality)
An average looking man with average income is a 7.
But and average looking man with high income is an 7, 8, 9, or 10, depending on how high his income is.

An average looking woman with average income is a 7.
But a below average looking woman with average income is below a 7.

The reason hot women are now dating your friend is because they perceive him as a 10 and therefore on their level, rather than below them. And therefore, they are expecting more of him, than they would if he was just a 7.

Q&a – Where To Buy Echostar Tr 40

Mandy asks…

Where can I buy the Echostar TR-40 DTV converter box?

I have done research about this converter box. They said that it was scheduled to come out in late June and early July, but where will they sell it? Whoever gives most descriptive and accurate answer will get best answer for sure!!!!!

Dave answers:

It suppose to be sold at major retail locations such as jr, bestbuy and others.

Sharon asks…

Where can I buy the Echostar TR-40 digital TV converter box?

I know it comes out June or July, I just want to know where to buy. Is it going to be online or retail store? For more info go here http://www.soundadviceblog.com/?p=855 and http://www.soundadviceblog.com/?p=796

Dave answers:

No news yet – the thinking on the bulletin boards I’ve read is that it will probably be through Radio Shack and Sears, since they both sell Dish Network equipment and so already have a relationship with EchoStar. Also, if you look at Sling Media’s website, you will see a bunch of sources for their division’s products. BTW, it will now be called the dtvpal.

Where can i buy the Nintendo Wii fit in August 2008?

August 2008. Please help! I want to buy the Nintendo wii fit but cannot find anywhere with it in stock! Does anyone know which stores will be getting the wii fit soon or anywhere which is selling the game? Thanks!
I need to know websites/companies which are UK based!

Dave answers:

I bought mine today, only because i have a friend that works in Best Buy.
I asked her when are they re stocking Wii Fits. They only restock 10 and they were gone in the first 20 minutes.

If you have any friends that works in Game stores or Electronic stores then ask them. If not then ask the employees for the date and go early (When the store open) because Wii Fit is a hard game to get and they do not restock much.
