An interesting ROLEX story: In July 2010 i was shopping with a group from State Farm Ins. in Linz, Austria. I was alone and got lost. Realizing that I was hopelessly lost, I went from shop to shop to see if someone would call the phone number I had. No one seemed to want to help or speak English. I was hot, terrified and in tears. I spotted a big ROLEX clock and store. I literally ran into the store and asked for help, expecting the shopkeepers to be the same or look down on my sweaty tearful appearance. Oh, no! The gentleman and lady working there were so kind, spoke English, offered me water and called the number I had in case I got lost. How thankful I was!!! Now when I travel I take pictures of Rolex clocks and tell people , “if I get lost, I’ll be at the Rolex clock!” When traveleing with State Farm (I am not an employee) the people on the bus, train, car poiint out Rolex clocks to me. Thanks so much for the help. I never could find the address to that Rolex shop in Linz, but they were lifesavers.
