Japan Rolex Magazine Free Giveaway Contest Time!

It is time for another free "Japan Real Rolex Magazine" giveaway.

The rules are simple.

1. Guess where the AD is located in the pictures in my third post on this thread. I ( know someone may jump in before I even have the extra minute to post them up after showing pics of the magazine to be given away.) Love this place.

2. One guess per TRF member. An additional guess (two total) if you are a 2014 pledge member.

3. The magazine (see pics below) will be awarded to the first member who correctly guesses where the AD is in my third post. The first two posts will contain the rules and the pictures of the magazine to be awarded.

4. The magazine is free of charge to the first member who guesses correctly. The magazine will also be mailed to that member in any country anywhere in the world also free of charge.

5. Have fun and good luck! This magazine is packed with pictures!

So here we go. Name the location of the AD. These are two separate stores, owned by the same AD in the same location. Pics of both. You don't need to tell me the name of the AD (Authorized Dealer), just the location. There are three pictures but only two ADs.

The Caronel Rolex Center and the Caronel Rolex Boutique in Tumon Bay Guam.

Here is a flyer we got that lead us to them. Adam that flyer too will be included inside the magazine.

Congratulations again! You truly are an old school Asia Pacific Ex-Pat! That was fast! Thought that would be a hard one!

No, I did not. Please feel free to as I am sending you the flyer as well. If you are ever in Guam. Which we truly loved by the way. Great people, great beaches and food. I highly recommend it. So much mellower than Hawaii but you can still shop and get you grove on if you want. Great island and people. I wonder what the gift is.

Wow, Japan is one of my favorite places in the world. I've spent may weeks there on business. Anywhere from Shinjuku down to Miyazaki. I'd love to go back and visit friends there.
