    DJ41 with Oyster bracelet, smooth bezel. Blue dial with Roman numerals in Pragnell Stratford Upon Avon. Would have taken a picture but the store was yet to open. Stunning dial

    Unsure whether the DJ 41 steel models are still in short supply, however If anyone was looking for a DJ41 blue dial, oyster smooth bezel, Fraser Hart Milton Keynes has one in the window. Amazing watch.

    They also had a Dj36 blue dial.

    I'm after a TT root beer so if anyone happens to stumble across one in an AD window, a heads up will be greatly appreciated

    Very unlikely to see one of these hitting the window. Have you asked ADs if you can join a list?

    Do you know that at that store each member of staff maintain their own lists. The store list was lost/changed/reset about 5 years ago.

    I was at an overseas AD last week and they had functioning watches marked as Ďexhibition onlyí on display.

    The explanation given was they only wanted to sell to their local market and not have the tourists hoover up the more desirable items.

    I didn't know that. I went in and enquired and the lady said that branch was the only one where I could have a chance of getting it without prior purchase history so I just put my name down with her. She also said that by putting my name down there, I can not go on the list for that piece at any other aurum group store which I thought was a bit excessive. Oh well, I guess I'll just wait patiently

    That's true. If you want to go on multiple lists then you better make sure you're not on more than one Arum/WoS list. Good chance they'll remove you from both.

    Yea, i think I'll call at bucherer and fraser hart and rolex boutiques. How do purchase history work for lists? I bought my explorer at watch gallery in Westfields before it got taken over by bucherer and bought my el primero at fraser hart in one new change. Does that count as purchase history or does the spend have to be in the branch that I'm going on the list at?

    Fraser Hart new change isnít a Rolex AD. They do have a good relationship with Breitling and will discount .

    As an aside. WEMP on 5th Ave is $100k spend per year to get on the list.

    Went around a few yesterday on my lunch break and after work and all basically told me the same thing. Rolex selfridges told me list is closed with a smug grin on his face, WOS regent Street said more chance of getting one by staying on the list at Royal exchange and bucherer Westfields said they aren't accepting any more deposits as they have a massive backlog. Oh well, looks like the wait continues for me

    About 3 or 4 weeks ago for a TT root beer. Was said minimum of around 8 months so was just seeing if it was even a remote possibility of getting it earlier elsewhere

    It's of no use to you now, but I did see one in a window before Christmas.

    What dial has that rose gold Yachtmaster got? Is it meteorite or something, given the price of the watch?

    Edit: ok just looked it up, diamond paved dial, not seen that before.

    Tried an op 36 on at an indy in Dundee on saturday. Lovely watch but was the silver dial, if it had been white, black or blue I'd have taken it.

    It's still there, shop is called Walker the Jewellers if anyone is after one.

    Is that a YM on the left in Oxford? They seem to get those in fairly regularly - and they hang around for a few days, at least.

    They are selling all the watches they make, at a price they can pretty-much make up as they go along........

    I would say it is the epitome of a brilliant business plan!

    Does anyone ever see 39mm white OPs?

    Iíve not seen one in a while and was on a list for one when I saw on in Hong Kong in October. I decided to buy it as they arenít really that popular over there. I even managed to get a bit of a discount.

    Itís still in the box so maybe was a bit of an impulse buy! Itís strange how it differs from country to country as I couldnít get near one over here in the summer!

    With northern Italy and many parts of China in lock-down surely it's only a matter of time that Corona virus has an effect on the Rolex market and more models make it into window displays.

    Thanks for the belated notification. Excitedly I ran to my phone only to be told sorry, they were both sold within the hour yesterday.

    Does this thread serve any purpose?
