    You could buy at today's price if your fortunate enough, give it til after Christmas you'll probably get the new list price if it remains stickered and unworn.

    Just today I saw some brown brogues in a shop window with 95% off,I decided not to buy them because I just know a pair of lightly worn ones will be for sale on here soon.

  11. #111
    Is there another thread for 'non-Rolex spotted in the window' ? I spotted a zenith big date pilot on shark mesh for 3800 down from 5300 today, maybe somebody is after one?

    Goldsmiths Reading had just 5 sports watches in the window yesterday.....wonder why?

  13. #113
    I know that there have been a few WTBs for the Deepsea Deep Blue. I saw this today, not Haywood's stores.

    https://www.miltonsdiamonds.com/watc...ial-2014-p2375

    If they still have it at that price after the increases might be a bit of a bargain for someone.

    Of course they pretended they had nothing interesting when I went there the day before the price raise. Now miraculously the good pieces appeared.

    Almost though this is touch more creepy and sad as these are mass produced watches and not rare birds.
    Waiting for an article in Daily Mail about the new trend of people descending in droves for window licking at high street jewellers and people taking cell phone pics of window displays and accosting and chatting up the staff to find out about next price rise and then rushing to post the gossip and unsubstantiated claims on nerdy watch blogs:-)

    Not interested enough to recall precisely which models but Goldsmiths Liverpool looked to have doubled the number of SS sports models on display post-price rise. Funny that...

    Oh and they have a GMTc Pepsi in case anyone wants to see one in the flesh.

    Passed my most easily accessible Rolex AD today (3 hours away!) in Aberdeen.
    Took a couple of quick snaps of the window display. Looked like someone was in buying a gold Rolex.

    Hope they got a healthy discount!

    So wish I'd of picked up the YMII for 11k last month think it's needed a go in my collection but not now at nearly 14k ouch that's PP money!

    It does have a very low ugly-to-price quotient!

    If still available (they appear to be) these two seem good value.

    A fully stickered up LV at 5,500.

    http://chronomatic.com/green.html

    And a stickered up white dial 116520 Daytona for 8,000.

    Parkhouse in Southampton had white, black and blue glass Milgauss and a black dial Exp II and that was it on Fri

    Unrelated but interestingly, they had all the PP display fittings but no PP watches at all in the window! Not sure whether this was because it was 30 mins before closing time or some other short term security issue but was weird as all the other displays were as normal. Am always surprised that Southampton has a PP AD.

    How does it work with pre orders, do you pay the price of the watch or the day you pre order or the day you receive it?

    Goldsmiths Newcastle (Eldon Square) have a ND sub, black and white Explorer II, a rhodium dialled new yachtmaster (looked midsize) and either a DSSD OR a SD4000 (didn't get a proper look).

    Depends!

    What do you mean by preorder?

    If you are referring to a wait list or a wait for an allocation piece you have a deposit on then yes typically you pay the price when it lands.

    But if the preorder is say a special piece like a PM model or something not always held in stock and the AD and has to requested directly from Rolex UK stock or from another branch then the price you would pay would be the price on confirming the order, some AD's may try it on but from my recent enquiries into a DD40 I was told the price I pay is the price it is on the day I confirm the order.

    Yea that's what I thought, was thinking about putting my name down for a new Daytona if you payed the price on the day you ordered it, then selling it for a nice profit when it arrived a few years later.

    Wakefields in Horsham just called me to advise they have a new Explorer 1 in

    The unified Rolex in the window thread

    White dial ceramic Daytona at Hug Japan in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Pre owned but mint although Japanese grey warranty. 8.8k. They also have the non ceramic white dial at 6.8k.

    You will need to be in Thailand to avail, I'm not able to assist in these as my bank is getting funny about the large volume of inbound transfers.

    I was just thinking that that YM at the front was under-priced and then realised it's the 37mm version. Doh.

    Yes, nothing particularly rare available in Liverpool but, just to add for information purposes, BLNR waiting list in Goldsmiths is apparently 6-9 months. DMR waiting list is still firmly closed.

    The more interesting part of the display at DM Robinson (Altrincham).
    I was tempted to go in and ask whether they let you keep the hang tags?!
