Looking to buy a new Rolex sub date and messaged a few AD’s. Seems like the waiting list is insane unless you have a relationship with them.
Anyone bought new from a AD and what was the wait time?

Your best chances are flying a lot or find an AD nearby that doesn't do public waiting lists and go there every day (morning) possible.

Try watches of wales as well. I just got a redline sea dweller, no wait.

Anyone know of any reasonably priced Baby / Mini Ploprofs - 120m / shom out there? Seems like I've been trying TZ since 2013 and the seller always backs out. Most of the re-sellers have them around 2.5k but they were closer 1.2k when I started looking. They generally need a good service too.

Thanks for the help. Was at a AD this weekend that only put you on the waiting list in person, hopefully that helps.
I’ll email the suggested shops, cheers

Anyone got a pelagos or black bay?

Did have a Black Bay, moved it on last year.

Are you set on new? There's a lot of vintage options in that price range.

It depends how old we are talking. 2-3 years then possible but decades old then no.

I got the Black Bay steel last year & it’s become my daily watch. Easy to wear and you get bang for your buck. Don’t have to think about it and has 70hr power reserve.

Despite the ball ache of a waiting list, to those lucky enough to get the new Rolex SS BLRO over the course of the next decade, despite initial claims for Rolex the Oyster bracelet can be interchanged with the jubilee bracelet. White gold owners will be raging.
Edit: Wembley will prob have it in a week.
