Agriculture Secretary Manny Pinol posted on Facebook (FB) a lengthy post which detailed his experience of returning a gift worth P450,000. The gift turned out to be a rare edition of a Rolex Replica watch.
Pinol’s post on FB was titled “It Is The Season Of Giving But Sorry We Can’t Receive.” He said that gift-giving was part of the tradition of ceremonies among officials like him, and so he did not mind receiving the gift “stuffed in a bag along with the other mementos” when he attended a dinner with top officials of a giant agricultural company.
Pinol said it was not until he opened the gift at his farm in Kidapawan City that he realized the value of what he received. It was a Replica Rolex Submariner Date. The rest of the official’s post detailed how he returned the watch to the giver. The post earned 48,000 likes and 16,000 shares as of this writing.
Here are three fast facts about the Rolex Submariner that Pinol refused to accept as posted on his Facebook account:
1. The official website of Rolex states that the Submariner is a diver’s fake watch.
Its features are iconic as it offers robust and functional design. The watch has an Oyster case, distinctive dial with large luminescent hour markers, graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel and solid link Oyster bracelet. The website also stated that the Submariner is in line with the original model launched in 1953.
2. The Replica Rolex Submariner has eight different designs.
Although Pinol did not detail which of the eight designs he received in his post, the photo included in the post appeared that he could have the Oyster, 40 mm, steel design.
Rolex stated that this design uses 904L stainless steel for its steel watch cases. 904L is mainly used in the high technology, aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential.
3. The only retailer that sells the Rolex Submariner replica watch in the country is located in Cebu.
Lucerne Jewellers is an official Rolex retailer that only sells guaranteed Rolex timepieces in the country. The shop does not detail the prices of the watches online but Forbes provided information on the price range of the cheap replica Rolex Submariner Date.
