    Bullring Goldsmiths always seems to have an Explorer on display whenever I walk past, give them a call.

    I was speaking to the Fraser Hart store manager in Solihull over the weekend, had a short but pleasant chat with him and not the usual brushed off responses most get from ADís. They have received 5 Pepsi GMTís since they were released this year, which is actually more than I was expecting

    Surely people who really want a Daytona would just bite the bullet and pay the premium from a grey dealer , who would wait 5 years or more , or buy £50000 of unwanted watches.

    I had a watch regulated by Mappin & Webb last week and casually enquired about the availability of a Rolex Explorer. They said they could likely get me one quite quickly if I wanted one. I guess they draw on group stock, which includes Goldsmiths and Watches of Switzerland. So my top tip is don't wait to see one, go in and ask!

    But then there's the usual 'do lists exist'/'do "good" customers get preference' overlay.

    I hope that you put your name down and took a note of the name of the person you dealt with. The years will fly by.

    There was one in the window of Goldsmiths in Leeds yesterday afternoon along with a GMT LN (which I have seen some chancers trying to sell at a premium on eBay).

    EDIT: This clown asking £7,000 for a 2012!

    The local AD says ten years...and he's wearing a new ceramic Daytona, so he must have been very patient.

    This is what I hate about this..its created and nurtured an attitude in the AD outlets also..
    There is a Yachtmaster a Mil and a Airking in Chester... nearly went for the air king but cant convince myself on the 5 10 3 20 25 6 erc etc
    Looks pointless

    Probably get to year 9 and they lose their dealership. How annoying would that be?!
