Recent trip to Doha and they have all the steel sports Rolex you could buy but the exchange rate puts them 20% over the local rrp

What did they have? And did you enquire about purchasing? Wondering if it’s the not uncommon “no problem, but we’ll need you to buy a day-date also”

No Daytona’s and no need to purchase anything else it’s just too expensive with the exchange rate

There was a fella on TRF looking for info on Doha just the day before, if you want to give him the heads up. Think he said he'll be there on the weekend? Doha airport does have a history of strong arming SS buyers with PM Models.

The airport was even more expensive, better off going to the AD the people were very approachable and not the usual snobby type in Doha

So for example what would a no date submariner cost out there?

If anyone is in Weirs could they do me a favour and see what they’ve got in terms of new model Datejust 36s (both Twin tone and SS)?

All Yellow Gold Submariner with black bezel in Lunns Belfast.

It's in the window of one in the Queens Arcade.

I have to admit if I had the money I would have that over a Stainless steel any day!

TT Rolex is totally undervalued at the moment. They are just not in fashon for some reason. I think the GMT 2 TT black dial is lovely. I think maybe its the number of "affordable watches" around that have faux two tone that puts people off.

Undervalued by a small segment only. Two tone datejust is the biggest selling Rolex over the last 40 years and continues to sell well (driven on in western markets currently by a lack of steel alternatives).

In Manchester for the last few days. Not a steel Rolex in sight across multiple ADs shops. Two second hand dealers have them all though.... One of Every rare model, both blnr, Pepsi, both ceramic Daytona’s in the window (I assume more hidden in the safe) and enough subs to shake a stick at.

I passed a small shop and noticed a hulk in the window for 11.5K and tried it on. Got chatting to the owner and he said he has all the other big ones in the safe but he took them out of the window as he was sick of people coming to try them on......i sheepishly had to leave after not buying the hulk .....hulk didn’t blow me away but was very nice.
