Grey market is about $3600, so getting one with a stamped warranty card from an AD for $4k sounds reasonable to me. If you love the watch and it's there in front of you at a price you're willing to pay, get it and move on with enjoying it already!
I got mine from Sergey at Chitownwatch for $3550 with stamped warranty card. So I would check with him first. Don't know why he's not mentioned more in posts like this. Grey market price + warranty = best of both worlds.
Sent from my watch using pure mechanical brilliance.
The boutiques can try to squash ADs and grey market all they want, but the real value of the watch is what people are willing to pay. I bought mine brand new from an AD 5 years ago for $2800, nowadays I'd be willing to spend $3500 but retail price is crazy. No one will pay that much and Omega will be screwed if they can truly stop their dealers from selling to grey sites
