Indeed 893bet, "undervalued" should be in quotes and only in relation to the current sports model pricing. A lot of people are suggesting that the bubble is fit to burst. The prices are driven by speulators and dealers buys off eachother and adding mark up each time. There are not enough actual end buyers, and eventually there will be no more "greater fools" around to sustain the pricing.

Great. It’s this one in particular. Keane’s have a few more blinged variants of it, but this is the exact model I’m looking for.

Roman, Arabic or other markers? You’re making me jealous. I’ve waited 10 years or more for that combo but have lost the grá

Hi all thinking of buying my first Rolex and travelling to Hong Kong in October for business I’m I right in believing that I may pick up one slightly cheaper over there?

Also any views on the Airking I haven’t seen one in person but think they look great on the website?

Grey market dealers for stainless steel professional Rolex models are charging an arm and a leg over the odds in Hong Kong

The airking is nice. One of the few pieces you “might” get in an AD on the day.

I would prefer an OP 36 or 39 personally.

No idea on pricing in HK.

Absolutely true but a month or more of the current disturbances will significantly reduce mainland tourist spending in HK. Dealers will be more interested in dealing. The advantage in HK is that there is always stock on public sale. Remember to pay the VAT when you get back.
