For those owning North Flag stock, your ship has come in - prices are sure to uptick now that it's been confirmed that the Tudor North Flag has been specially discontinued in the all-important Leighton Buzzard and Surbiton markets!

Since these world-leading markets are used as bellwethers for global Tudor North Flag market demand, it's a sure sign that Tudor will stop making them for everybody else.

Dealer stocks have been continuously low since 2019, indicating imminent discontinuation some time in the following decade - quick, buy now!

Thanks for the heads up. I almost bought one online but I found a grey dealer in Leighton Buzzard who sold me one for £5350. This is now the "market price" for the NF. Just need to buy a ranger now. Hated it until last year.

Does anyone know anything about Rolex waiting lists? I want a Daytona for the weekend but my AD doesnt have any in stock?

Mine has six, I’ll get him to put one aside for you.

Is it the "Liquidity is Key" chap? :)
No it’s a nice chap who has a market stall on the corner Tuesday morning.

All with box and papers.

Was never a fan of the north flag to be honest. Didn't like the power reserve in bright yellow if im thinking of the right watch

Ah, the North Flag was almost the watch I bought before the Sub. I almost convinced myself to spend less money on it because I couldn't fathom buying a Rolex, but after being egged on by a colleague of mine, pulled the trigger on the Sub and never looked back.

That was my favourite thing on it. O almost got one like new for $2000. But back in the time I thought it was a lot and I wasn't spending as much as I do now on watches. Mistake.

Question for you 170, did you buy one for yourself?

The last official retail price for a NF was £2,300 on a leather strap. And the Sub cost you?

This was in 2016, when Subs were plentiful, so I got it under MSRP from a private seller. If you're just looking at this from a "return on investment" metric, I've just about doubled up on what I paid, and have had it for almost 5 years now. Then again, watches I buy aren't investments, they're to enjoy.

So assume around £5,000-6,000 then?
