    Rolex stops production until further notice

    Had an email today


    Many of the well-known luxury manufacturers in Switzerland have decided to close their production facilities until further notice. This will reduce the availability of popular models from Patek Philippe and Rolex and will make their purchase more difficult in the future.

    So from no availability to no availability.
    As you were.

    Well known, but people think that if they talk about Rolex, then good luck (a phone call from a dealer) will come their way.

    Fun to watch (see what I did there)

    Punters will be relieved to learn that the Watchfinder online shop remains open, so no real danger to the supply of essentials.

    Someone was saying on TRF today that Rolex had asked the Swiss Government if they could re-open again. Anyways who cares, all this means I still can't buy what I want so who gives a monkey's.

    The bottom is about to fall out of the luxury market anyway. Thereís no point producing stock that they wonít sell quickly

    Probably switched to making hopelessly-obsolete Manley ventilators out of Platinum...

    There was a time after the GFC when Daytonas could be bought at a discount. Don't forget to pull your offer before this happens or you'll be pounded.

    probably not, depends on what you call 'essential good' of course. Online stores seem to be operating and the products they sell have to come from somewhere.

    I would say itís from existing stock or from places that arenít under lock down, depending on the product.
