Credit card on an interest free offer.

If you can't afford it on a one off, should you really be buying it? Just don't see why people spend so much on a watch. A £200 Hugo Boss watch is just as nice and does the exact same for 40x less.

Don't think many could class a £200 hugo boss watch as just as nice. It also certainly wouldn't be seen as an investment, which watches can be! Interest free credit card is probably the best bet for free finance, as you can still shop around for deals and cashback then

surely it can't be a good time to buy a Rolex with the pound being so low?

Rolex subs didn't used to be £8k (as in 12 months ago)t . They're ~£5k. If you want a deep sea/gmt/ sea dweller then they are more. No idea on interest free credit mind you and in all honesty why buy a luxury item if you're short on cash? I appreciate that a Rolex will not normally drop in value, but genuinely I'd just save up a bit then get one. Plus by then we might have a soft brexit confirmed and a recovering pound to make the watch cheaper in our currency.

Failing that, other iconic watches can be had for less, e.g Omega Speedmaster.

I was quoted just over £4k for a Sub in Geneva airport 18months ago. Unfortunately I did my sums wrong in the airport and thought the savings were small and didn't buy it. When I got my credit card bill through and saw the exchange rate they'd used I was mortified!

I bought a sea dweller back in 2001 for £2440 now worth between £4500 & £6000 so a good investment, have a look on the watch finder site I'm sure they do fiancé deals. Good luck and worth buying as an investment .

Where are u located ? Laings offer 5 year interest free

If he wants to buy a Rolex then let him buy a Rolex. Comparing them to a Hugo boss watch is just laughable.

Most high street retailers that sell Rolex will do interest free credit with a 10% deposit.

Watchfinder are good but they are expensive as they stock sort after watches.

Trying to live beyond your means then? Planning to buy an 8 grand watch you cannot afford.

I bought my first Rolex on interest free. Nothing wrong with that. I have since sold that one to finish my extension. There was a time when there was nearly two dollars to the pound, and it was remarkably easy to import watches from USA path all relevant duties and still make £650 on a Speedmaster. If he wants to buy a Rolex let him. Some cards offer 48months interest free I believe. Buy second hand though,plenty of reputable shops about.

Hugo boss lmao tacky rubbish
Will not hold value at all
As a collector watches can. Be a great investment long term

He will pick up for easy 5k no different from half the population driving about in cars on HP the difference with a watch is in 2 years the value will increase while a cars will drop, if he's considering the purchase I'm sure he has the appropriate income to fund it :)

I've seen decent replica Rolex watches around the £70 mark
#22
Just go on holiday with the money and buy a few fakes.
Wouldn't dream of having such an expensive item waiting to get broken or stolen.
I've had two fake hublots that looked the business
Dropped first one onto a bathroom floor in Vegas and smashed it, 2nd one left under a hotel bed when drunk.
Same goes for raybans, sat on original pair so stuck to fakes since then.

A fake watch is one thing, but fake glasses can actually harm your eyes. Anyway lecture over

A Rolex will last for a lot longer than a fake ever will and is something you can pass onto kids and grandkids too .

No contest

A financed car to get to/from work and for life in general is much different to a watch... Champagne lifestyle on financed beer money.

Might be the funniest comment i have seen on here, ridiculous.

You clearly didn't get my point. I've seen some Fugly Rolex Watches and seen Hugo Boss or Armarni which are a lot nicer to look at. They both do exactly the same thing, tell the time. What's ridiculous is spending Eight Thousand Pounds on a watch.

You just don't get it. Those brands are known for suits not watches, I won't go any further.

Just a quick piece of advice if your planning on getting a Rolex and keeping it you'll have to factor in servicing I've got a longines and due to the movement of the watch the service cost £250 and I was told for the Rolex guarantee you need it serviced but as others have said they don't depreciate in value much and if a special edition the amount they appreciate can be enough to pay a deposit on a house ( mate did it).
#31
Mines is 16 years old and never been serviced the jewler said if it's ticking don't bother haha so I've not !! May treat it to a service in its 20th anniversary;)
#32
Have you tried asking the retailers? They may be interested to sell stock?
#33
Really want a Range Rover but I've seen a Ssang Yong that looks much better or at least just as good . It's only 12k can't see the point in a 100k Range Rover

I think you'll find Hugo Boss is a fashion brand ,not a serious watch for watch collectors . Why bother with Boss you can get a nice looking Quartz watch from the market for a fiver

Rolex are an investment in some cases , it's not really for telling the time it's piece of jewellery

I hope that sort of explains why someone would want an 8k watch

Sorry but something getting nicked wouldn't stop me from owning something nice

Very bad time to buy any Rolex , especially the sub as they just increased all U.K. prices by 10%.

As for it holding its value , in the long term you can expect it to if there are more price increases but in the short to medium term you will be taking a hit as with most watches. It is only the limited edition models and Baselworld releases with year long waiting times that are true investment pieces. A regular sub can be bought anywhere, anytime...
