Sometimes a weak Canadian dollar is actually a good thing. International brands like Rolex usually have price adjustments in local currencies to keep their products priced close in dollar adjusted terms all over the world.For several years now the Canadian dollar has been significantly lower compared to the U. Canadian authorized agents and customers have speculated for quite a while that Rolex is about to increase prices in Canada to compensate for the weak currency. When a super hot almost impossible to find model like the new Yacht-Master 116622 turns up that’s only 8 months old, we think we must be dreaming.
Well it still hasn’t happened making Rolex products in Canada among the lowest priced in the world. All the most popular gents professional models are scarce here and usually available only by placing your name on a waiting list that can extend over a year in many cases. The sporting models like the Submariner, Daytona, GMT II Master, Explorer, Yacht-Master etc. This is the first Rhodium dial with sky blue accents we’ve ever had.
That doesn’t mean buying a Rolex watch isn’t expensive. That all sounds fine and dandy but many models are very difficult the find in Canada as Rolex diverts shipments to more lucrative markets such as the U. The 40mm case size is the same as a Submariner and the traditional size of all the professional series of Rolex watches.
