To many entrepreneurs and business people owning a Rolex is the ultimate status symbol. Owning a Rolex is a way of telling the world what you’re about and what your status in society is. If you’re considering purchasing a new Rolex here is a few things you may want to consider.

Can You Afford A Rolex?

This is a simple question but something that people don’t follow. Just because you are thinking about purchasing a Rolex doesn’t mean that you can afford one just yet. Take a look at your finances and if you don’t have to make any lifestyle changes, or divert any money away from saving or day to day operations then you are on the right track for Rolex ownership.

Do You Want To Keep Up With Maintenance?

Owning a Rolex is like owning a sports car. It’s pretty to look at but requires a lot of care and upkeep. Rolex watches are more complicated than your average battery powered watch. Rolexes have complicated mechanisms have to be services regularly. Do you have the time or the money to keep the maintenance of this watch up?

Do You Care About People’s Questions?

Is your Rolex real? Can I see your Rolex closer? These are just a few questions you’re going to be expected to answer when you own a Rolex. If you don’t have the time or patience to answer these questions then perhaps a Rolex is not for you. On the bright side is that these questions can lead into opportunities if you’re open to it.

If you can afford a Rolex, don’t mind the maintenance and don’t mind people’s questions than you should consider owning a Rolex watch.¬†You also can’t deny the communicative power a Rolex watch has when saying something about your status, wealth, and taste. None of it may be true, but years of work have given Rolex wearers a pretty good personality edge. Even people who think buying a Rolex is a too easy way of showing actual or apparent wealth can usually only fault the wearer and not the watch. I’ve come to find that a Rolex watch is infrequently a bad choice.

People tend to want buy a Rolex for one of the following main reasons: to celebrate an achievement, to own a watch that appears to hold value, to communicate a level of career or life success, to own a luxury watch that is a simple choice, or to wear a timepiece with a lot of history. Most Rolex watch models would satisfy each of these needs. No reason is better or worse, but it is interesting that most people’s desire to wear a Rolex falls into one or more of these categories.
