    Buying ss rolex from EU AD

    Hi guys

    Was just wondering if anyone has any luck being added to a waitlist in EU contacting via phone/email, as i am seeking a Hulk and wait times in UK are too long. Happy to travel to smaller eu towns but cant go just to add my name on! Thinking demand might be less eg estonia or poland etc?

    I can speak for Prague, and unless you are resident you are unlikely to get any desirable model as they are saved for locals mostly or big spenders. I can't imagine the situation being much different elsewhere.

    My girlfriend travels all over the EU with her work and before my local AD came up with a BLNR I had her asking around every AD she came across for any 40mm sports Rolex. Same story at every single AD.

    Generally the same in most places. You are left with trying to track down a small independent and seeing if they can get the model you want quicker than your local AD.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Hulk not too hard to get, just make sure you've spent at least £30k per annum at that AD, if not then you will be on a very big wait. I saw one go this am to a Chinese guy who spent £42k on watches in one go, most of the money being on Precious Metal Omegas

    Thanks doesnt sound like anyone had any luck. I wouldnt spend silly amounts on watches i dont want, might as well just pay 3k over retail and buy it grey in that case!

    A year ago my buddy walked into an AD in Dresden and bought a sub, he could choose freely from LN and LV, no previous purchases there. Its all a bit random but Germany is probably a good place to trawl...

    Iíve given up on the idea of getting a Hulk now. I have more chance of getting a Pepsi, hopefully that comes this year

    It may be connected to demand (well, small market), but I haven't noticed Rolex AD in Estonia:)

    Interesting. Iíd have thought Pepsi was trickier to obtain than a Hulk.

    Agreed, OP is wasting his time trying to be added to an EU waiting list for a hulk at RRP unless a big spender.

    As a non spender, youíre just another faceless name looking for a steel sports watch. On top of that youíre not even local.

    Iíd keep your efforts to the UK or go grey.

    Athens seems to be a good place to buy watches.
    The ADs seem to have most brands and models available. The dealer in Kolonaki had nearly all of SS models in the window when I was there in the summer.
    I guess the economic situation over there means they hang around for a while.
