I am overjoyed with my new Rolex GMT II with it's Red and Blue bezel and jubilee bracelet.
It reminds me of the first of many Rolex I have purchased from you, and one of the first you had ever sold, a "Coke" GMT II; the first GMT with an independently adjustable hour hand and optional "submariner sized fliplock clasp" from the factory in 1992 when I was thirty one years old. As my first dream Rolex, was a very "big deal." My bill of sale still hangs behind glass, as I was so proud because it was a graduation present to myself. We all wish they still cost the same today as they did then.
Our relationship does indeed go back about twenty six years! It was through this time that you graciously helped not only me and my entire extended family, but several close friends as well, to a whole host of fine watches and jewelry. Each and every one was overjoyed to have purchased from you and treasure each item. These relationships are not only the hallmarks of a good business, but encourage multiple repeat purchases through the years. We have experienced both good and bad economic periods through the many past years, yet the actual buying experience, trust, and understanding of the brands and the buyers has consistently been superb. This is why I have been fortunate enough to develop a large collection.
As a "self made" person who has a history of incredibly hard work in order to achieve, I am one of many who are lucky enought to be able to purchase long desired fine watches from you. My first 1992 purchase was the culmination of a desire for Rolex, which started when I was 9 years old, from their classic advertisements in National Geographic Magazine and the New York Times. There were no Rolex dealers where I grew up and no internet existed, so these ads were all that was available. Surprisingly, I actually now live in a building which has a long time, famous, Rolex ambassador as a resident! She is a pianist and we can actually hear her play if we are near her apartment. Additionally, Rolex worldwide philanthropy and munificence is something we, as purchasers and dealers, should all be proud of.
I am thrilled, fortunate, appreciative, and yet humbled to be able to experience the Rolex brand through the extraordinary people associated with Bernie Robbins Jewelers.
