John Mayer, noted watch enthusiast/collector, has dropped a lawsuit that involved over $600,000 worth of Rolex watches the singer believed to be fake, TMZ reports. Mayer filed the lawsuit against watch dealer Bob Maron, who the singer claimed defrauded him when he sold him the pricey Rolex collection in 2007.
Mayer previously believed that Maren knowingly sold him watches that used fake parts. Now, the lawsuit has been dismissed without ever reaching court. "Two years of research restored John Mayer's belief that Bob Maron is an expert on Rolex watches, and confirmed that Bob Maron never sold him a counterfeit watch," they said in a joint statement, according to TMZ.
The singer can finally take a deep breath after resolving the lawsuit. He recently called the Rolex reseller market a "minefield" and seemed to be personally pained by the potential he could have a bunch of inauthentic watches on his hands. "Nothing will teach you more than that feeling,” he told The New York Times. “You want to learn to fight? Get hit in the face.”
Even if the watches had been fake, though, the loss would only have been a drop in the bucket for Mayer's multi-million dollar watch collection. Mayer's collection includes a number of coveted Rolex timepieces, including the Explorer II, a "double red” Sea-Dweller, and a Daytona Chronograph, accoring to the New York Times.
