Yes, I have one that my husband gave me for Valentines Day years ago. It's beautiful, solid and I don't seem to have a problem with people's eyes being drawn to it. I used to wear it a lot, now it's in a safe and I wear an Apple Watch most of the time.

I’ve had one
since 1979. As long as it’s serviced regularly, it should last the rest of my life and beyond. I also have a Cartier that I wear just as much as the Rolex. They’re both gold and stainless steel.

As far as “drawing attention “— my watches are good quality, but not really high end.
I consider a high end watch something like a Patek Philippe or maybe an Audemars Piguet.


Comparing a Rolex to those watches is like comparing a Cadillac to a Rolls Royce. Both nice, but not the same quality.

I feel like women aren't as into the whole 'Rolex' thing as men and judging from this thread, I may be right.

I love to wear different watches ~ as much for fashion as for telling the time. There are so many feminine watches out there ~ those are my favorite. Anne Klien, Kate Spade, etc. I used to always buy from Fossil but now that I can buy a fitbit band in every color under the sun . . . I don't buy as many watches as I used to.

Name brands don't impress me. I would not own a Rolex and I wouldn't be able to tell one from a cheaper watch. I just don't care. My favorite was an old Timex. I don't wear watches anymore.

No. I prefer my Fitbit, which not only tells time, but also tracks my steps. I can also check my iPhone for the time.

Name brand ANYTHING is a waste of money, IMO. I don't care and I don't notice what brands other people wear either.

One of those questions that's never going to get an honest answer. If a woman says yes she's a gold-digger.

I've never been an expensive watch type guy. But I know they get a lot of looks regardless to most people. It reminds me of pricey handbags. Some don't care but for some they bring a lot of envy. The ones owning them swagger a bit when people ask about them. Same for the Rolex.

Aren't Fitbit and iPhone name brands?

Ha, ha. I don't have an iPhone or a Fitbit but I do have some cheaper name brand items that no one would be impressed with

I don't think so. It just means that for whatever reason a Rolex would be impressive to her or she likes them.


When I was 21 I was dating a man who told me how people were impressed with his Rolex. I looked at him and said "what's a Rolex"? lol....and I still wouldn't recognize one today at 51.
