I bought my first Rolex (GMT Master Pepsi) back in 1998 when the Ringgit Malaysia was under attack. The watch cost more than my monthly salary; however, I had made lots of money as I had sold most of my shares just before the stock market collapsed in 1997. So I thought to myself back then, if I didn’t get a Rolex watch, with our Ringgit weakening day after day, soon a Rolex would eventually be beyond my reach. Today, a new Rolex 2 tone GMT Master II cost more than 3X (i.e. 300%) compared to what I paid about 20 years ago.
I tell you, buying the Rolex Pepsi was the best thing I ever burned my money on as I can still use the damn watch after 20 years. I can’t say the same for the many notebooks, tons of mobile phones and other electronic gadgets that I had bought, where most are obsolete today.
I have published several articles on Rolex watches and decided I should present them in a systematic fashion in parts.
Part I is like an introduction to my Rolex Series where I will touch on my Rolex Pepsi and why it is a damn good investment.
