I could easily close my eyes and envision that the absolute 'best' place (as you put it) to buy a Rolex or Omega watch would be at a waterfront dealer on one of the Caribbean Islands shortly after being announced as the winner of some Super Lotto drawing and as a second purchase after first buying a yacht that is parked at a dock in front of the appropriate AD.

Seriously, figure out what you're asking and let us know. Do you want a strategy for getting the cheapest price? There are threads discussing potential discounts. Are you asking where in the world prices are the best? There are threads for that too. You sign in here with posting number one and don't give a clue as to where you're located or what you're 'really' trying to find out. There's a boatload of information here and people willing to help with serious and focused questions. Do some preliminary research that is easy to find and when your choices are narrowed, take advantage of what's offered.

The term 'AD' refers to an AUTHORIZED DEALER. Throughout the world, Rolex very tightly controls who can retail their products, demanding certain display and inventory requirements in order to offer the watches. There are also other contractual requirements and probably unwritten rules that must be followed in order to have the prestige of offering the Rolex line.

In EU prices will be the same everywhere, so it depends upon your haggling skills.. :)

US will probably be cheaper because of weak US$.

This has been discussed a billion times here on the forum.

The best price is when you actually get your ass to the Authorized Dealer and negotiate.

No one is going to magically give you a good price online or phone call.

Put the money down the table and negotiate.

People that buys Rolex expects to pay MSRP when they walk in the store, especially on hot models such as the Submariner, Datejust.
