Browsing on my favorite Rolex Forum, I came across a post by a certain Claus. He once came home on a very cold evening. The roads were iced and everything went okay, until he got out of the car. He slipped and this was the result:
He cried because the bracelet broke down (only the bracelet replacement is probably around¬7500 Euro), the saphire crystal shattered and didn’t know what more was wrong…¬ Claus asked the R-L-X.de members what to do and brought the watch to Rolex Deutschland GmbH (which seem to be cheaper than Rolex Switzerland).
Then he got the bill, which wasn’t THAT bad…
And then there was the relief…¬ ..a Day-Date ref.18239 like new!
