Greetings, fellow Doxaholic! The 1000 is a great watch, I have the 1200 NUMA version.

Not to change directions here but I have a 10 year wedding anniversary coming up and asked for a Rolex. But I have no idea where to start. Pre-owned? New? I don't have the money to but something uber expensive but investing something like this I'm good with (as is my wife!).

Are deals to be had on these things? Or will I spend generally the same $ no matter where I go?

Appreciate the insight

The Rolex world is really tough to find a good deal in! They keep such a tight control on the dealers pricing! Join the Rolex Forum and contact "Justrolexes" or "DavidSW" and see what they can do for you. They're both super stand-up guys that I've dealt with before and always have great watches. Once you join, you'll be able to shoot them a PM

Here's my daily driver...I fly in really remote parts of Alaska and the ELT transmitter is just an extra bit of security when flying! At least I'll have some sort of emergency beacon if I can at least get out of any wreckage with my left arm attached!

I daily wear my '71(?) Omega Speedmaster Mark II. My FIL gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. He bought while on R&R from Vietnam. Flew helicopters. When he gave it to me the glass was mostly cracked off and bezel was worn. I had those replaced, but really need to send it in to Omega for a thorough going over. He bought a blinged out Breitling for himself.

I dig the Mk II Speedmaster; it screams 70's. Right before Omega came out with their groundbreaking LED watch. Those were cool, too.

This place in GA is pretty reputable for buying used watches...

Another recommendation for DavidSW on TRF (The Rolex Forum). He's got a web site here: http://davidsw.com

It's a bit overkill, but I have a strong desire to die of old age!
We have a 406b ELT built into the plane, another handheld 406b, and a Sat phone...but you never know what you might be able to get out of a plane crash with, or if the plane will be submersed in water or not. It's an added bit of insurance since I'm always flying over super unforgivable (but beautiful) terrain like this! It would really suck to survive a crash, only to succumb to -20 temps

What's your max altitude, and what's the purpose?

Purpose of altitude is to not hit stuff attached to the ground.

Max is 25,000 but we don't usually get above 12,000 or so since the plane isn't pressurized and we'd have to use our oxygen. It's a Cessna Caravan - great airplane for the enviornment and what we use it for (federal law enforcement).

I purchased one recently from DavidSW and will say he is world class, great service most of his watches are a couple of months old and from repeat customers who flip watches every couple of months.

What percent off new do his watches typically sell for?
