^ I paid slightly over retail but not as much as what they’re reselling for online.

l got it from a friend who was waiting on a Nautilus which came through so he sold it to me as a quick sale to release funds…

£23.5k here for a black face

please don't try to compare a watch from mid 90's/ early 20's with a watch (or dial version) from 2020

they are totally different watches

Oh nice, I have lusted for a nautlius for sometime now, but 9 years on a waiting list doesnt appeal, and the retail price will probably be about £50k by then anyway!

Uk retail for the 15500 was about £15-16k if im not mistaken? £23.5k is ridiculous.

Think the retail is closer to £20k now?

They're all taking the piss now! Was announced around Jan 2019 at CHF 19,300, about 16k, the replaced 15400 was 17,900 CHF, about £15k.

Just confirmed current retail is £19,900. Like patek raising the price of the nautilus 20% overnight, just taking the piss because the demand is there.

Sky Dweller or Deepsea for a larger Rolex, asking not for me, the buyer likes an investment?

Whats everyone think is gonna happen with the price of grey market watches after this looming financial disaster?

Personally I think supercars and the over rrp watches are gonna take a beating!

Gray market on some watches/brand is already extremely high
Some (most of?) factories are closed and do not produce any watches.
I think that overall it won't have much impact

^ i'm not so confident the market will hold strong. Many people will find themselves in severe financial difficulty, many buyers themselves for luxury watches only get by and live the lifestyle they do because of finance.

Super/luxury cars will definitely take a beating, watches I am quite confident will too.
