  1. Rolex & Tudor
    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...
  4. Officine Panerai
    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...

  7. Omega
    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 311.30.42.30.01.005. 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...
  9. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    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

    So i've noticed that in private dealings, whether or not it has the stamped paper (purchased from ad) is an important issue. I mean I would feel much more comfortable buying something that was purchased from AD as well, but what exactly is the purpose for this? Assuming that the original...

    Would it be wrong to go to an AD and you suggest the price first? I recently purchased a watch from an A.D. (Amazon - and yes I know what I'm talking about, Amazon being A.D.), with about 60% of the Retail Price, but turned out it was defective so I returned it. Refund is still being...

    Hello everyone! Though I'm new to WUS, I've been lurking around for quite a while... As my avatar suggests, I'm a bit of chronograph lover (though I don't really own a Vacheron ref. 6087!), currently with a Tissot PLC200 and a Junghans Chronoscope (designed by Max Bill, it means a lot to me...
