Albert Coombs’ watch-collecting journey took a number of familiar stops along the way. And then burst into uncharted territory.
He started by admiring his father’s high quality replica watches, from there he discovered the world of high-end watchmaking through a Rolex GMT.

Coombs takes us back almost two decades to when he had just finished college. He was fresh into dental school, living off of loans and still doing the “if I walk to the grocery store instead of taking the bus, that’s two extra dollars I can spend” calculus that a lot of us have done. A friend’s dad let him try on white gold Meteorite cheap UK fake Rolex Daytona watches and it lit up something within him: “I remember looking at it and being like, ‘One day I’m gonna get this. I don’t know how.’ At the time it was $16,000, just to give you reference. But I said I’m going to work hard and I’m going to get this watch.”
Fast forward to around 2017 and the luxury Rolex replica watches has been discontinued (and way, way more than $16k) but Coombs is still trying to make that dream come true. He tries steel Swiss made Rolex Daytona copy watches and it’s not quite right, so he trades it in for an Everose, thinking that precious metal will do the trick. A few weeks later a friend calls and points him to available meteorite AAA Rolex Daytona replica watches, but Coombs can’t return or trade in the Everose, so he misses out on his grail. “That did a special thing for me because I decided when it comes to watches, I was never gonna compromise again.”
He sets aside the meteorite dream, and happily continues collecting, eventually feeling pretty content with panda dial Rolex Daytona super clone watches for sale – which he ends up gifting it to his father, who loves it even more than he does. And then, in an act of watch karma, the meteorite panda is released.
Coombs’ AD hits him up to tell him he’s working on it, and 13 months later it comes in. Coombs drops off his son at school, hops on a plane to Chicago, hugs his AD, grabs the Swiss movements replica Rolex watches, flies home, and picks up his son. “There’s a picture of my son when he first saw it. He goes, ‘We got it?’ And I was like, ‘We got it, son.’ And he was through the roof.”
