    Iíve played with the thought of cashing in on my Kermit and replace it with the new Sub ND. What are my chances with zero AD history?

    I sent an enquiry to my local AD earlier today for a ND Sub. I've only bought a couple of watches from them in the last 8 or so years including a Milgauss GV so I don't have much hope of even getting a response any time soon. I actually have no interest in building any kind of relationship with them because every time I've been in there I've been talked down to and told how Rolex is an aspirational brand.

    Yep .. that is all these people care about views ... views = ad revenue so it is just a ratings game.

    It is bizarre that there is such a huge business is people wanting the opinions of others on all items when the reviewer seems to have no grounds to offering anything more than a laypersons view ... expert reviews are useful but those of a self appointed random seem irrelevant to me.

    I'd be the same! Cheeky s0ds! It's not "an aspirational brand", it's an expensive watch! If they don't want to sell you one, fine but, as you say, you don't go in the dealers to be insulted!

    Seems some posters on similar threads have got (extremely) lucky and picked up sought after watches when the odds were massively against. Your chances of the watch at list if you don't ask are zero so got to be worth trying.

    I don't think he disagrees they are nice and some iconic watches. He was warning of buying fakes and franken watches feeding rotten (illegal) industries - I think the first parts about Rolex wearers was not to be taken too seriously - but there were some good observations mixed in (IMHO).

    Really it was little more than click bait disparaging sub owners ...

    Congratulations and I hope you donít mean alongside in the safe. Iíll put money on your 114060 not getting much future wrist time.

    Thanks I can’t wait!

    Who knows what the future holds but currently I’m thinking about putting the 114060 on a black Rubber B tang buckle for a more casual look.
