Negotiating price of Rolex



  • Registered Users Posts: 285 ✭✭Gavin1

    There should always be a discount. If you are in the position to have cash in hand make them aware that you buying on the day.

    Upmarket jewellers crack me up, they would rather let a sale walk than engage and take a "hit" on the price.

    Rolex don't allow them discount. If they did discount and it became knowledge that they did then they risk losing their AD status as it's against policy.

    It depends on the model regarding discount.
    If demand is huge then discount won't happen.

    There is a 3-5 year wait list for the new Daytona....when they ring you to say they have one in finally to see I you still want you think they will give you a chance!

    anyone who thinks showing up at weirs with a wad of cash with guarantee a discount is wrong,

    in fact if its a desirable stainless steel model they wont have it in stock most likely

    you may get a small discount of some less desirable models, or two tone or precious metal but thats it

    if its any other brand whatever discount you get in weirs will be dwarfed from an italian dealer on c24

    Hi guys, so was on to lunns and weirs about the watch yesterday and they said they would have to order it in as they don't have stock,they said it could take 3 to 14 weeks for the watch to come in

    Problem is my dad's birthday is mid February, had a busy, expensive few months so never got sort it before now.. Is it likely to take more than 4/5 weeks to be ordered in?? Anyone and experience ordering watches in?

    Its a blue datejust 41 in steel and white gold, one of the cheaper ones so not a higher valued or custom watch

    Honestly, I'd order from Jomashop. You'd probably be cheaper going to their new york store and collecting in person than buying in Keanes/Weir.

    Will you be in New York or the Middle East between now and then?

    Thanks for the help guys, couldn't get the watch in lunns or Dublin as they were out of stock and didn't know when they'd get it back in, rang a few places in Liverpool and Manchester and they said the same.

    Ended up going to keanes in limerick this morning and getting the watch there, got a 5% discount with no haggling, just asked on the phone if there was any movement on price and they said yeah. Watch is silver and white gold but by no means ones of the more expensive ones.

    Again, thanks for all the replies
