These Rolex AD is no longer exist in Hong Kong, Budson, David..etc


These  Rolex AD are no longer exist anymore nowadays in Hong Kong.

Budson Watch Company
China Emporium Limited, it was situated at today's H & M
Lam Yuen Fong Watch Company
Lane Crawford
Andre Watch Company
David Watch Company
Kowloon Watch Company.....



Many of the Rolex Authorized Dealers were gone... In Hong Kong.
Look this is watch catalogue of Rolex of the 70’s there are so many familiar names on it.

Rolex Representatives or so called Authorized dealer in HK. But after 90s many of them has gone eithers Rolex or the shops leave out from the dealership for some business decision.

One worth Noted is that is real old timer Fung Leung Kee which was established in 1947 till now still having close dealership with Rolex, though they have only one shop.

The one David Watch company was close in 90. Kowloon Watch company was once having dealer ship but it was removed out by Rolex in the list.

In the 80s. a lot of jewelry shops joined the Rolex team, Like Chow Seng Seng, Chow Tai Fook, King Fook..
Now there are as many as 16 Rolex AD and 66 Shops as of June 2014.
Those were the days!

There was a case a Hong Kong celebrity went to buy a Rolex Date Just in Rolex AD in Germany, whose watch was adjusted shorter but the sales man took two sections of bracelet links from her. Until she came to me talking about this…
She wrote a letter to Rolex SA Swiss complaining, and then she received a letter from Rolex Service Centre  HK.

The case is Still under investigation, and I hope she can get the returned sections from Rolex.
Yesterday I help Michael (Australia) to buy for his wife 118235 (pink gold Day Date) at Rolex AD, he asked to removed 4 sections of the links, that is an equivalent of HKD$3,500 x4 = 14,200!

Is that tempting? So next time, when you buy Rolex, check what you have and everything should be counted! Dont be shy to ask WHY the section of Link is gone, even a stainless steel Oyster Section is HKD$500! or Next time tell me to go buying watch with you!

Hey there.
So what are the disadvantages of buying from a non AD?

Thank you

just afraid of reliability of the seller and their products
If reliable seller is OK as the watch is cheaper.

I think nowadays buying Rolex in Hongkong is quite expensive even if its a second hand one. Try to shop in Japan
if you can and have time to go.
