    Is there any reason to believe Rolex has "preferred" ADs who get larger allocations of watches?

    Hi All, I'll be travelling to Europe soon! Visiting Italy, France, UK, Belgium and Netherlands. I've been eyeing on the JLC master control Memovox or Calendar for some time now. I've heard from various threads that some ADs do discounts? With VAT return + discount I am hoping for some juicy...

    maybe a silly question. we all know watches shouldn't be investments. but, sh*t happens. it's nice to know the thousands of dollars you've just spent on a watch isn't going to depreciate by 50% the minute you walk out of the AD's door. am i right?

    Watch enthusiasts! Id really like to purchase a Black Bay 41mm from an authorized dealer that is willing to negotiate a discount. Does the forum know of any ADs that are willing to negotiate in the northern NJ or NYC area? Much appreciated and thank you in advance!

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a second hand Rolex in perfect condition as a collectible. I very quickly realized that I'd rather buy watch that I'd wear and thus think about setting it free to find a new loving owner. To not spend days talking to potential buyers and having to negotiate etc...

    Hello folks, This is my first post to the Rolex section. Also this is my first Rolex, a datejust 36 Wimbledon and I absolutely love it. I purchased it second hand in September after little movement from ADs for months. Grail watch for sure, I don’t think I’d ever sell it. BUT, after initial...

    was reading this article: & made me wonder. Do you guys just think its a result of supply-demand that's effecting the rapid increase on watch prices?

    Been awhile since I last visited WUS, how you all doing. So I always have been purchasing watches via online store, but this time I'm trying to buy my first Patek from an actual AD brand new. Before contacting out to stores, while I do know that retail price is a SUGGESTED price and is not the...

    I've been told that there are those that would be considered a "friend of the brand" (rolex). Those that buy a ton of watches just so that they can accumulate massive purchase history with the dealer so that they get first dibs on highly desired watches. Which watches make economical sense to...

    Are there any recommended Omega ADs in or around DC/Arlington area that is currently in business? I want to find a middle ground between purchasing from a boutique/big chains and relying on grey market sellers! Thank you!

    I called an AD yesterday to ask if I could be put on the "list" for a new Explorer 36. They insisted that I come in and meet with them first. Is this normal? Keep in mind the nearest AD is ~200 mi. away.

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a Rolex Datejust 36. I have two questions: First, I'd like to ask if you have any tips for a first purchase, even if from an AD? Are there any secrets to be aware of, or pitfalls to avoid. As far as I understand, you walk into the AD, get what you want, pay...

    Anyone gave a gift/s to an authorized dealer? If so, what did you give? How was the experience? I visited an AD today to pick up a repaired watch and dropped off a whiskey (well Christmas was coming up so...). Luckily the dealer appreciated it (an avid Whiskey fan) and showed me his stash of...

    Hey all. Brand new to group. And I have a serious question. Three weeks ago I place a full payment on this PAM 1058 at an authorized retailer and they assured me that the watch was available and that it would arrive from headquarters now in August. Yesterday they said Panerai Is no longer...

    Hello - a local AD still has some new-in-box 3750.50 references, and seems to offer it at a good price, well below MSRP It is approximately $500 less than the price for the updated 311. Any thoughts, comments or hesitations on purchasing the 3750.50? I already have plenty of...

    So I have concluded that I may as well bite the bullet and buy what I really want instead of buying/selling a bunch of different watches that I will get tired of quickly. I'm going to pick up a ceramic Seamaster (as a Father's Day gift from my wife). I have been wanting one for a long time but...

    Hello WUS, it's been awhile since I been here last. I'm looking at pulling a trigger on 1 or even 2 pieces of JLC. (seems the prices has dropped here in US due to weaker Euro I'm assuming) In any case, anyone got an AD they can recommend in the East Coast?? Thanks all in advance, Wolf
