Anyway, my first watch is given to me by my parents while I was still studying. It is an automatic and waterproof watch. But I guess, due to wear and tear, I feel the need to replace it. Thus, I decided to buy a new one from my own pocket. And yes, watches (of good quality) are really that expensive.
I had purchased my watch at US courtesy of my officemates who had their vacation there sometime last April. I believe the price there will be a little low as compared here. On the other hand, I am not into online shopping. So, buying online is not an option. It is because I am afraid of fraudulent sites.
But later on, I discovered www.bestoftime.com that claimed to offer 100% genuine and authentic brand new and pre-owned Rolex watches. To give shoppers encouragement to buy, they offer substantial discounts resulting to a retail price much lower than that of the suggested by the manufacturer. Yes, I am hesitant to believe at first, but through online readings, I found out that Best of Time, also known as Alex Jewelry is a member of Better Business Bureau and had received an exceptional A + Rating, the highest possible rating a business can get. With this reputation, I know now that buying online is secure.
