100%. Unless it's RRP and brand new in an AD.

Pretty close to zero chance of owning one of the “in demand” models so unless you are dropping serious bucks in an AD on other brands. The odd rare success stories of “I happened to get one by chance” are far and few between.

Perhaps arse will fall from market but there is a lot of pent up demand. RRP is largely irrelevant. Market drives the value. Similar to it being easy to get most Omegas at 20% off.

RRP is not irrelevant if that’s all your willing to pay or go without. I think Rolex are driving away a lot of genuine non-flipper customers with this shortage. If I don’t get a GMT 2 Pepsi then so be it but as i stated before here I can get over being ridden if I don’t know it’s happening but I’m fecked if I’m gonna willingly get ridden and be asked to smile while it’s happening

Plenty of bargains around if you have the spare time to hunt 24/7, this one sold for £9500, only a fool would pay the prices being thrown around it’s all a bluff

That’s still 3 grand more than RRP.

I also assume that add is an old one pre Basel. If not then buy it now as watchfinder will pay you more and they are notoriously low.

Maybe I should have been clearer the bargains are out there because that dealer was able to buy that and sell it on eBay and still make a profit even after fees and taxes.

How do you know that one sold for 9.5 recently?

Hard to believe any dealer would sell for that and have to pay fees when wf will pay them more with zero fees.

There was a 2016 full set blnr on eBay for 10250 a few weeks back.
Don’t trust watchfinder 100% on the value they offer via email, it’s all a game with them

Your tastes would be in the minority it appears, very unpopular watches in Rolex land. Even two tone Daytona are easily got in the AD. But we are all allowed like whatever we want. They are nice watches.

Absolutely. I actually liked the look of the watches. I'm not 100% convinced on the Gold DD yet though. I'll let it grow on me and see.

Funnily, I'm not a massive fan of the submariners, which I know are extremely popular here
