Hello all, new to this group and looking for my first Rolex.
I am getting married in a year and would like to get a piece in time for the wedding. At first, I was hoping to pick up an Explorer, but I’m open to any stainless steel piece between 34mm – 36mm at this point. I’ve called a few ADs and expressed my interest. I also found a few OPs (from prior years) on Jomashop.
I started my search about a month ago and the wedding is not until October 2022. I feel like part of the excitement in getting your first Rolex should be going to the AD and picking it up. However, this seems more like an anomaly than the norm in the current market.
If you were in my shoes, would you wait it out, go gray or buy pre-owned?
