    I am way out over my skis but I have a good friend that did me a thoughtful favor that needs a thoughtful reply.
    He is a Rolex guy, a medical doctor, that makes 100 times more than me, so a monetary value gift is out of the question.
    Any ideas for a small gift? He is not a watchmaker or historian, just a fan and everyday wearer and I am coming up a blank.

    Heck, I always thought Rolex was a division of Rolodex.

    Anyway, thanks for any ideas and I'll head on back to the Omega side.

    Whenever I hear a reference to “flexing their rolie” in pop culture, I think this

    If he likes his watch, get him a wall clock that matches it for his office. They come it all models.

    Thanks friends, that is what I'm looking for, something a Rolex person would enjoy.

    +1 on the a nice book. Otherwise, maybe a nice strap?

    I've done it with a good friend and hardcore Rolex freak...I got him a sports Seiko SKJ007. He doesn't wear it much but he cherishes it quite a bit.

    A custom strap would be dope. Michael Knapp (https://michaelknappleather.com/) loves making them for Rolex and Speedmasters, and has a nice YouTube channel about his work.

    Don't mind at all. That was a gift from the Rolex boutique in Izmir, Turkey. I didn't have any use for it, so moved it on.

    I think a book is the best option, affordable and more useful than cheap trinkets of questionable origin

    I could sell these. Relatively inexpensive, though not cheap. Attractive vintage displays, and they could be used.

    Hey Jimbo, I'm a Rolex guy too, I'd love something "Rolex".

    Can you spring to a 1978 5513 for me?

    :D

    Seriously, a thoughtful gesture by a genuine ole boy, whatever you decide I'm sure the benefactor will appreciate the thought more than the gift.
