Rolex watch

Visiting AD in November. My husband is interested in purchasing a Rolex watch, I'm presuming we will get it cheaper in AD than in the UK?? Any recommendations as to where to go if that is the case?

1. Re: Rolex watch

Why do you think it will be cheaper in AD than in the UK, because it is rarely the case as a result of the exchange rate and high costs over here. Just because we do not pay tax does not make things cheaper here.

Luxury goods in my experience are cheaper in the UK and then for me even cheaper because I claim the VAT back as well

If you want to buy a Rolex look at buying from a UK airport

I agree with BlightyinDubai. Prices of luxury brand goods in UAE are nearly always cheaper in the UK.

Thanks for the advice, I've obviously been mis-informed!

I suggest you get prices for the Rolex model in UK and then go into a couple of the authorised dealers in Dubai to compare prices and remember to barter. I did the same last year in both UK and Dubai (malls and duty free) cheapest by about 300Pounds was in Deira city centre authorised dealer.

Be careful in Deira. It is awash with Roleks (misspelling deliberate)

Names of the Authorised Rolex dealers you can check on the Rolex website and you will receive the guarantee paperwork from the shop.

Would anyone know where the Rolex Service Centre is in the middle of town? We have been there before but cannot remember the name of the street. It was a store by itself and there is a workshop in the upstairs bit where they do all the servicing in a couple of days. We were quoted 16 weeks for servicing in the UK!
