Picked up the watch, my first Rolex, this morning and opened it.
Wow! Way more impressive than the photos, which were excellent.
Looks brand new. It was even running and set in my time zone.
I had dealt with Bernard Company once before and - like that time - they came through better than advertised. This was a big investment for me. So before buying the watch I felt like I was borderline nagging the firm with question after question. Jeff, however, answered all my emailed inquiries in a friendly informative manner and with no pressure.
Bottom line: Five stars. Double thumbs up. I can't recommend Bernard Watch highly enough and I will happily buy from them again.
