When I meet someone for the very first time and they are wearing a really nice watch, like a pre-owned Rolex Submariner or Yachtmaster, I feel compelled to ask them about it. And it is never a shock to me when a big smile comes over their face and they start telling me stories about their Rolex watch. Often, I find the stories about how they came to own the watch to be the most interesting. In most cases, the watches I ask about were a gift, a celebration of an important moment in that person’s life. And this got me thinking about how watches are very special gifts, regardless the price point. If you can think of a list of gifts that are greatly appreciated, used all the time and last a long time, watches are certainly at the top of that list.
It is critical for a man to celebrate certain events with a gift that is very meaningful and does him justice. A Rolex watch is a perfect for such occasions.
One trend I have recently read about is giving the gift of a timepiece from the year that person was born. Since it is rather difficult to find a specific reference to date from many watch manufacturers, many people choose Rolex watches as the serial numbers can match up to a specific date. So anyone interested in giving me a used Rolex Submariner from 1965 for my birthday, it would be greatly appreciated and cherished forever.
Giving the gift of a watch for graduation signifies new horizons. A used Rolex watch is a tool you will use for the rest of your life and perhaps even pass along to your children. I still have the watch my parents bought me for high school graduation and it remains cherished to this day.
I have seen first-hand families that have given the gift of a watch to the groom. Often, it is from the bride’s family. It is critical for a man to celebrate certain events with a gift that is very meaningful and does him justice. A Rolex watch is perfect for such occasions.
The art of giving is not lost when you gift a Rolex watch.
