A Rolex Sea Dweller waiting list only exists in the retail sector. Loyal Rolex clients are given higher priority when buying new watches. Customers who have just decided to pick up their first Rolex must sign up for a waitlist. Subsequently, the duration of the waiting period will depend on the model you choose.
If you are looking to buy a Rolex Sea-Dweller, the waiting period ranges between 2 to 3 years as a first-time Rolex customer. The time frame will also vary depending on the variant you choose.
Buying a pre-owned Rolex Sea Dweller is relatively easy and less time-consuming. In addition to that, the possibility of getting a better deal is also high.
