    Not quite Rolex but I didn't want to start a new thread.

    Tudor bronze bay in WoS in T5.

    Looks like Rolex have also forced them not to offer the VAT equivalent discount if the buyer isn't flying outwith the EU.

    I don't think Rolex are actually in charge of VAT...

    No, they're not (yet) but they can stop watch sellers at airports giving discounts equal to the VAT element to travellers not going outwith the EU, which is exactly what they did about 2 or 3 years ago.

    Just like buses.. I put a deposit down for a Hulk to collect from Torquay this weekend and Mallory's in Bath have just called to say a Sub Date C 116610LN has come in and do I still want it? Well I don't, so before I ring them back to say no thank you, does anyone here want it? RRP obviously

    A hat trick of Daytonas in my local AD window

    Out for a walk at lunch time and lo and behold as if by magic, the Rolex AD in Belfast has magically found all of that stock that they'd lost before the price increase!!

    A trio of Daytonas top it all off.......

    Can't get Flickr to wake up this lunch time but will upload a phone pic soon as I can. Surely a rare enough sight in an AD window?.....

    Honestly... and excuse my Rolex ignorance... but I don't know.

    1. Light blue burst dial with what looked like a chocolate brown bezel
    2. All steel - black dial with silver/gold sub dials
    3. Bi-Metal (steel/gold) with a gold dial, gold sub dials.

    My phone pic is pretty crap... but 2 and 3 above are reflecting heavily on the bezels, whilst 1 above is clear to see, so my uneducated guess is that 2 and 3 are ceramics.

    I'll upload the pic soon as I can.

    Given the talk of such long waiting lists... I was surprised to see them. Could be the retail version of click bait I suppose... all sold, but sat in the window for a while?..

    I enquired 3 months ago at the same dealer about a Hulk and was told I was number 18 on the waiting list as they are a very rare and desirable watch. Then 2 weeks ago, I got a call saying that one had just come in and my name was top of the list. Whilst buying it the salesman told me how lucky I was as there are plenty more names on the list after me. I just laughed, paid my money and left. The nonsense that some of the sales people in that dealer come out with is unbelievable. In fact several years ago, one of their sales people tried to tell me the original Speedy Pro was an automatic!

    A load of their pre owned stock went out of the window and off their website.... To appear back with a 15% increase! Way over priced compared to people like Blowers online. Mind you.... The watches I had my eye on have sold (unless they are in hiding again!)

    Mapin & Webb, Blue water yesterday, apparently all the people on the waiting list flaked. I probably would have bought it if they hadn't told me a couple of hours earlier they didn't have any steel sports and they were all waiting list only except Explorer II (which they also had).

    There was a BLNR going available with no list at GS Middlesborough yesterday.

    Sub C date, in Micheal Spiers Exeter window on Saturday and Sunday. I was in buying something else, might still be there.

    The salesman in Mapin & Webb Bluewater was wearing one, I commented and he said they've stopped adding names to their 'list' as they have "over a hundred" on it, I never know whether this is all B/S.

    Yeah I'd call BS or in the highly unlikely event there is as it's a very high demand area he knows full well a lot will be on multiple lists so that list will get worked down very easily.

    I believe the one I just posted about is now gone but it's the second one they have had and no one on a list for it!

    I think after the price rise, apart from the Ceramic daytonas, pieces are much more available now. There is no "massive" list anymore, at least for BLNRs. It may still be a challenge to get one in central london ADs but outside its very possible.

    If anybody's looking for a BLNR, I've just spotted one available at Hacketts for 7250 - unworn with stickers.

    I think the only thing missing from the window of Joyeria Saphir in Maspalomas in Gran Canaria is the D-Blue. BLNR, Hulk, SDc, white gold sub, Ceramic Daytona. Everything...

    So bar the ceramic Daytona, D blue and to some extent the BLNR. I think the drought is now over post price hike, bar London.

    Glasgow definitely isn't back to normal - a year or so ago I saw quite a few hulks and amazingly Xmas 2015 I saw a d blue on watches of Switzerland. Doubt that will ever happen again

    I'd be careful trying to help members, it will get you banned from buying Rolex.
