Yep. even yellow gold or bi color are hard to get right now and no more percentage on those as well

a reverso or tank will be my next one for sure

I got mine in under 6months with no prior relationship. I had put my name down at a few ADs and got a couple of calls within the year aswell.

The best bet is using ADs that only allow for notes of interest to be placed in person.

Just had a call from an AD regarding a black bay 58 I put my name down for. Worth the dutty on eBay? Looks like I can make about 500 on it…
Was going to be for myself but have my heart set on another watch now

2600 is retail, and Rolex are playing silly games with Tudor so there’s a waiting list.
I’ve not seen any go for 2600 in the second hand / grey market

Sold an IWC in person today, the buyer wanted the watch checked out so took it to the Bond Street store. Surprisingly they couldn’t had been nicer, helped check the serial number etc, gave us champagne and then gave the buyer some IWC chocolates to congratulate him on his purchase.

That is a cool story. They didn’t charge anything for that service?

Have always wondered when people suggest to meet an at AD to verify a purchase.
Thought the AD would tell you to do one considering they don’t benefit from it.
