This is an actual Rolex Slip for Rolex promotion in the 60s’ friend of mine gave us yesterday.
In the list you can see there were not too many Rolex Authorized dealers at that time, now we have over 100 shops under Rolex AD in HK.
Note the slogan " Men who guide the destines of the world wear Rolex Watches!"
HK and China itself consumes over 60% of Watches export from Rolex and HK is still the most important market of Rolex. With the new Xi Administration of China who cut extravagant spending on entertainment and at same time slow down of China GDP has an impact to the Rolex Watches market in HK. Nevertheless, the Watch Business is still a billion dollar business in HK.
These are the old Rolex shop but now they either closed or no longer selling Rolex.
