    Tudor Discount?

    Are there any AD's that offer discounts or will I get the Rolex Group brush off?

    Iíd imagine that itís based on

    A. The Tudor in question
    B. The relationship with AD

    You're overthinking it, just ask the sales assistant in the jewellers for a discount.

    I got a free leather strap and clasp when I bought my black bay. Also got the NATO in the box. Always worth asking if they wonít budge on price

    Quite likely you won't get one on the bb58 or any model in high demand.
    That being said, any other regular model is worth a try!
    If you visit regularly your Ad, you will construct a bit of a relationship with them which is good, it can also allow you to see what models have a high turnover in the window (as depending on your location it won't necessarily be the same as in other Ad's)
    If you see some light marks on a demo watch with a slow turnover, and you don't mind, that's a good place to start.

    Definitely always ask. I agree that you are very unlikely to get one on a BB58, but other models more likely.

    I always haggle like a dog anyway, no matter what the situation. Iím convinced that some dealers give me a discount just to get me out of the shop

    Hahaha that's a good technic!

    I would say it can be worth to wear a watch a bit pricey when you visit the AD, as it looks like you're the kind of person able to put money on the table, and if you're haggling, it's because you want/can buy.

    I've been treated less nicely in the past by some (not all) Ad as I was just wearing an affordable seiko or a non recognizable watch, they probably thought I couldn't actually afford one of their watches and that I would be a waste of time.

    Don't start to haggle of you can't pay straight away, it needs to be discussed and decided on the moment.
    If you are close to not just one but a few tudor Ad, you can afford walking away and make them fight between each others to get a better price or offer (straps et...), before coming back to see their answer

    I got 8% on a BB Blue in October. Don't ask, don't get.

    Interesting, do you mean the bb41 blue or the full blue bb58?

    Can I ask where from? It's the BB36 Blue I was thinking of getting.
