Today I had a small email conversation with a friend of mine about watches. He is on the look-out for a serious watch, but is not in a hurry, not in the last place because it is a lot of money to spend on something like a watch (did I really wrote that?).

So this friend, let’s call him Jorg :-), got a Rolex GMT-Master (I) on his wrist for one week, borrowed from someone else. I am not sure and I could be wrong, but some years ago he mentioned that he could find nicer watches than a Rolex for those prices. And I nodded His enthusiasm towards Rolex grew as he handled a few and discovered that wearing a Rolex won’t make you a drugsdealer or give you a bad image per definition.

Anyway, he emailed me today that he really likes the GMT-Master and it seems that his quest for a watch really got easy over the last few days. To make it a bit worse for him, I decided to put some GREAT reviews online on Rolex GMT-Master watches.

So here you go…
