    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

    There *was* a blue dial yachtmaster in the rolex shop in Knightsbridge on Saturday.

    It's on my wrist now though. Hehe.

    Have to say they were a really pleasant AD to chat with, unlike my very recent experiences elsewhere. Couldn't be happier with their service.

    Harrods had the iridium version as well. Aside from those two didn't spot any sports/pro models elsewhere.

    2006 SS Daytona

    White Face - full set for 12,600. In a jewellers in Salisbury today.

    Looked very clean.

    Spotted a very attractive daycare in Pressleys (Worthing South Street) window..
    Also lots of Rolex (no sports models of course but a fair few ss models left not sure which but worth popping down or a phone call) all at about 10% off, bremont and Tudor also reduced but didn't have time to have a proper look.
    Price on the day date is negotiable and I was offered it for £6200 so £6k dead should be doable if you wave the money at them :0)

    I zoomed in and it has thinner lugs, so is the newer one.

    Didn't think the new one would quite be a window piece just yet. But obviously it is

    Now that would be something to post about, but I assume it is just a green glass Milgauss.

    Yes, even these that were available at every AD before start to become a rare sight.
    Personally I love them. Here is mine..

    No sports SS models at T4, although there was a lovely OP 39mm with the new grape dial. Told the missus she should try it but she said she doesnít want it!
