    Itís gone for me. Only options to choose are grey, green or blue in the steel variants. Probably just a glitch.

    The unified Rolex in the window thread

    Apparently a glitch but it is still there. I have seen it just now. If you search you will find it. Alternatively, if you are on 'configure' there is a gap between Blue and Black and Grey and Black...if you click that gap it comes up !!!

    Edit: highlighted dot is where you need to click. Weird!

    The Rolex website has been slow/glitchy for a couple of weeks now.....takes ages to load to make any configuration.

    I'm on 'the list' for what it's worth and I have a significant birthday later in the year. The AD is going to 'see what he can do' so, deluded or otherwise, I'm keeping an eye on it.

    It often reminds me of Monty Python when they are debating whether Stan should have the right to have babies.

    It is also as ludicrous

    Could we fact check this please? Went back 50-100 posts and found that any mention of pricing was insignificant.
    Significantly trumped by your insignificant contribution to Ďwatch related topicsí over 50-100 posts.

    Just back from the gym so apologies.
    I'm not the sort to go back counting posts but it just seems to me that you comment on values more than anyone else.
    Used to be Boring- Sandwich and to give him his dues he was proven correct.
    On your earlier comment about me owning Rolex watches then yes I do but it ain't gonna make or break me if values go up or down.
    Of course it's nice if your watches end up worth more than you paid but it's swings and roundabouts .

    Im discouraged from presenting the truth by naysayers. I have always said if a watch is hot or not regardless of agenda but we are where we are and theres a smidge more to go but not much.

    Rising insurance costs, potential targets, and general confidence in the world / change of government will take another 10-15% off the gold and shiny stuff, maybe another 5% off steels by year end

    That said if you look at a historic chart and disregard the period 2019-2023 then the trajection is the same as ever so buy with confidence and accept youll be a smidge under where you want to sell and you are right.

    There was a White Gold Yachtmaster available today at WoS Brent Cross.

    Quite understated. If I didn't have the BLRO then I'd definitely purchase this



    Very nice, but would prefer without the diamonds



    Very surprised of how balanced it felt



    Bonkers! And not in a good way

    A wild guess from me is no, unless you have been spending tens of thousands on crap jewellery with them.

    Of course theyíre not, although I was told that the GMT would be if I wanted it.

    They werenít in the ADs window. They were at a private showing.

    Perhaps the camera angles, but the Daytona appears larger than the GMT. Still both 40mm right?

    Yes, still all 40mm, but I get what you mean. The white gold to me looks and feels bigger than the SS 126500

    These private showings seem a little odd when there is nothing, or very little they can sell you.

    And I am sure when you think you are hob-nobbing at the top of the list, there is a list above that.

    But, the point still stands. What is the point if you canít buy anything. You now have to be on an exclusive list just to see and touch what you canít buy! As opposed to a lower tier list where you canít see or touch what you canít buy.

    Which list do you have to be on to buy anything you have seen and touched?

    No reflection on those who get invited, but the whole thing does feel a bit w@nky, and the main reason I have no interest in these mass produced machine made watches.

    Probably a bit like porn

    You have woman have been through 800 guys but wouldnít let your chrome done buy them a coffee

    Doesnít mean theyíre not available/ruthless goers, just means you donít have turkey teeth and take steroids.

    Itís the first one of these weíve been to and to be honest we were both unsure of whether to actually attend, but decided to give it a go.

    We were pleasantly surprised and it wasnít a bit pretentious. Had a champagne reception followed by a lovely three course lunch, which included speech by the AD MD and also a member of Rolex senior management at our table. Very open to questions.

    We then had an opportunity to see and try on what was on display.
    A little disappointed not to be able to see the 42mm Ti Yachtmaster as they had only ever received one, and one of the 80 guests was wearing it.

    An afternoon well spent, whichever ever way you want to look at it.

    I was once told in passing that Iíd be invited to some similar sort of shindig. Surprised given my modest history but this was before the madness took hold 6/7 years ago. In the end the call never came and I am obviously now a ďlegacyĒ customer!!

    There is an element of Rolex knowing that any of the decent models (read steel sports) always have a healthy base looking to buy them so customers in abundance.

    The meatier stuff (read any bi or precious or left of arc steels) has a far smaller demographic in terms of demand because of both aesthetic and cost so therefore a glitzy gathering maintains the flow where the water is sparser.

    The mainstream professional models no doubt don't need any cultivation but Rolex has some very high-end expensive models in precious metals and I expect they need cultivate that high end of the market.

    The mind boggles as to what your purchase history must be to get an invitation to such an event ...

    Iím not so sure Wiley. I was invited to an event last year, which I wasnít able to attend. I received an invite to this yearís event too which takes place in July. Currently undecided as to whether to attend or not.

    Very modest spend history over the past six years. When I enquired about the Celebration Dial OP I got told they wouldnít sell me one even if it was available as I would put in my safe and never wear it. I also got told the list for a GMT was closed.

    Going to one soon for Tudor as Iím too small time for Rolex. Theyve told me to wear a Tudor or donít wear a watch if I canít.

    Will be some stuff available to buy on the night apparently. Must be the pink one as everything else is in the window anyway.

    Did they tell you what colour socks to wear?
    Surely it would be in Tudors interest to try to demonstrate why their watches are superior to the one on your wrist?

    But lame to have to ask guests yes, but you would hope anyone invited would have the sense to wear a Tudor and if you donít have one they shouldnít be accepting it.
