Presume you've contacted Eazypz - wasn't it exactly what he was after or did he find one?

Wow, they made a pretty good watch, looks just like a Rolex, did you send in some drawings for them to work off?

Any good places to shop for decently priced, decent quality (cognac) leather watch straps?

Bulang and son are nice but around £100 https://shop.bulangandsons.com/watch-straps.html
Few German sellers on eBay doing cheaper versions, I was pleased with the ones I got but can't see them in my ebay history now so can't remember the seller.

Those are definitely nice. Got a 16mm lug width so nothing there for me. But found some good things on Ebay. Cheers

What's the likelihood of getting some discount, even if it's 5% off, a new Rolex Explorer I at an AD in London?

My local AD had one in the window a month ago and now it's gone. Snooze you lose…

I'd think cash buyer could get 5%. Unless sub or Daytona there must be a deal on stock watches.

You might even get a discount at the Rolex boutique on Bond street. It all depends on their targets and whether they need to make a sale that day.

Unless its popular model which are on a waiting list. Discount would be possible for less sought after models.

should be no problem imo for that model! but if you looking for a discount why you don't go to a grey market dealer first?
