There was no wait list and so I bought one. It was a bit of a middle finger up to Rolex for their nasty bullying.

This is outrageous! let's all sell our Rolexes in sign of protest, let's dump them for 1/2 MSRP and burst the bubble inflated by fake scarcity and corporate tyranny, let's end up the bullying of the weak by the heartless manufacturers of overpriced ego boosters and fake status symbols! Send me your watches, I not only vow to pay you 1/2 MSRP, I pledge to resell them for 1/4 MSRP and bring down the Crown once for all. PM me, I'll arrange the pick up of the watches at my expenses (don't thank me, it's the least I could do for a noble cause). P.S.: only 6 digit professional models are elligible. No YM2 either.

I ordered one as well. I had an AA-battery powered clock in the kitchen for convenience and it's dying so I'll replace it with this one. Bought it off Amazon. Certainly all of my average, reasonably well informed friends will see it and be impressed that I have a genuine Rolex plastic clock in my kitchen.

You know, I don't blame Rolex for defending their trademark. I hold a couple U.S. patents with a couple more pending - so I "get" intellectual property. But I think there are certainly less obnoxious ways they could have gone about it. Also their statement that the average, reasonably well informed consumer would likely call the Rolex line of watches to mind when looking at the Oyster & Pop logo is so preposterous that they should be charged with perjury should they ever dare to utter it under oath.
