    True. I suspect the assumption (well, to be fair, fact) is that lots of people are ringing/visiting every AD they can find.

    In reality, my personal experience is that in practical terms it makes no difference. Iím ďlocalĒ with some (modest) purchase history and Iím clearly not likely to get anything any time soon/ever again.

    The AD could hear me arguing with my wife, must have been embarrassing to hear. I clearly didn't want to wait until next weekend!

    Two tone or full gold root beer? Might be interested in the TT and wondering how available these are. Thanks.

    Here is the additional YM. The rear watch looked larger, maybe 42mm?

    The basis of this thread and their availability (or lack of) suggests otherwise.

    Ah sorry, must be the 37 RG based off that price. Weird though as it looks white gold in the pic but I know the light plays tricks on these.

    Pretty sure it was the 40mm (in any case I know they had that as I was in the AD today).

    You always pop up on here with what's in their window and it's really interesting. I trust you know their stock well and believe you, just interesting is all.

    In any case NoTaGlove was there independently as well today and also spotted all the YMs. That branch is a great branch for harder to find stuff as it is kind of a flagship branch in terms of layout and size but Kingston isnt exactly Mayfair in terms of local demographics.

    At £18650 that should be the 37mm RG YM on oyster flex. Unless the store is a bit clueless on its stock and mistakenly placed the price on the 40mm.

    Always makes me think two things. The two tone YM must be cheap and the grey price of subs is actually not bad at all.

    I've flipped a few watches to see what I liked and what suits my wrists but I always wanted to try a 40mm Sub or SD for my retirement. Rolex prices going stratospheric has pretty much put paid to that - SWMBO would throw me out of the house if I dig too deep into the villa construction fund.

    Definitely, 37mm. The 40mm RG YM on Oysterflex is £22K odd - I know because I bought one at list late 2020 for £21,900

    A few thousands too high
    £6,450.00 is the RRP according to the Rolex website.

    Yes I know what RRP is.
    I wouldnít contemplate paying over RRP for a current Rolex, but there appear to be many willing to.

    No idea, may well be the case nowadays :-)

    Iíve previously picked them up in random ADís Iíve just popped into as Iíve offered them here before, but itís probably harder now.

    Just thought Iíd mention it here in case anyone wants to try and get one before they are all gone.
