    Or perhaps start charging for rides on A Real Rolex Rocking Horse.

    Mind you, the wait times would be ridiculous.

    Wouldn’t you have to ride on a rocking sheep or rocking goat for at least a few times before they would allow you the privilege of riding on the horse? :D

    I now need a new MacBook. Mine’s covered in laughter-spewed coffee!

    we chose to have that option deleted. It's been replaced with an American Flag dog bone and a Devil's Lantern gnome (it's a jersey thing). :D

    I’m on my third Outback. 2014 3.6 which I’m in the process of spending through its 60k needs and replacing a broken bumper cover( a little off road adventure last month) . They are great cars, are built like tanks, huge bandwidth, but they do have their irritating eccentricities.

    My mother is traveling and sent the following asking me if I was interested in any Rolex watches. Any one of these worth buying?

    If Mom is buying, then the answer is a resounding “Hell, YES! Thanks Mom!”

    I think we should leave the sheep out of it.

    I have a horrible image that will not go away

    The ‘display’ models at my local AD are all fully working watches. I haven’t seen any with dummy movements.
    I can’t imagine any of those being for sale if they’re brand new.

    The general unavailability of Rolex stock is just ridiculous in my view. Would you go car shopping at a dealership that had models that you could only look at, but not purchase - or worse, had no cars on the lot at all? At what point does the unavailability of stock transition with would be consumers from evidence of demand and desirability to impatience and irritation with a company that either can’t meet demand or chooses not to?

    That would be my local Toyota dealer right now. Over list, get in line.

    Agreed, but not for the last 5+ years.

    Sure, but hardly the case for every model in a given manufacturer’s lineup. I bought a new Mazda iin June of 2021 right in the middle of the pandemic - no wait and a sizeable discount. If I had wanted an SUV, there would have been a wait and no discount.

    Watch collecting journey.
    Weight loss journey.
    Career journey.
    Road to recovery journey.
    Rolex journey.
    "Don't Stop Believin'" ~ Journey.

    All of them smell like bullshit to me. Yoga mat talk between sips of single batch kombucha.

    At apple we really did have T-shirts that said 'The journey is the reward.' I may still have some somewhere.

    Never warmed to Rolex. Not sure I would enjoy one even if one came my way. I like a watch I can fix myself if something goes wrong with it.

    I know I wouldn't.



    It's certain that Rolex knows more about what it wants out of both its marketing and its production than I do, but I have an opinion anyway.

    Wow, I was very prescient. Prices are collapsing and there are actually places rocking stock like it's 1999. I'm kind of only interested in the Tourquoise OP. If mom can find one at MSRP I'd pick up one.

    These are Rolex stores that only sell Rolex so I don't think they would make her buy more Rolex so that she can buy Rolex...:)

    Unfortunately, I've been afraid that the opposite will happen. That she finds something she likes after going in and putting it on my tab.
