    They aren't inflated market rates. It's either the market rate or it isn't. And I've yet to see any of the moaners selling their watches at below market rates.
    Started out with nothing. Still have most of it left.

    Good luck with getting the deal in place to get what bayou really want.

    Although its likely a couple of months too late to get the best possible price, as things have cooled.

    Im after one myself, but Im on the list and know its simply case of waiting it out for mine, but most wont be able to get one at retail any time soon, so there will always be a good market.
    It's just a matter of time...

    Second that just stick in sales you won't be the only one wanted market value, it's all about what happy the except for the Sub.

    With Rolex many people have different expectations now, especially in a rapidly cooling market. OP wants top dollar, he stated as much. Market price and all that lark is code for it, else it would be with a dealer already. He wants more than dealer money, which is all well and good, but SC/TZ is more wary than ever on Rolex. Better to accept that its better to just take dealer trade money, unless of course its too low, which tells you even more about the 'market price'.

    More votes for Mark Worthington, Miltonaires and WF.



    And in absolute agreement with this....

    Thanks for all your help. Sadly, the watch I wanted flew out (Calatrava) so I now don't really see the point in selling the Bluesy. I'll see what other offers come through, but one day I'll hopefully have another Patek in the collection. I do wear the Sub and it looks amazing on a sunny day; my only issue is it competes with my TT GMT which I've owned since 2016, and wear most of the time. First world dilemmas

    Can confirm - spun me the old "just bought one for xxxx" which was 2k less than a quote I'd already had from elsewhere. If you don't want it, say so instead of lowballing. Shame as I really wanted to like him, being local and all.

    Indeed, it would be useful to have a local and fair dealer.

    My disappointment was doubly compounded, as I knew Jonathan pretty well at school. While not expecting anything like mate's rates, after all I hadn't kept in touch with him, his offer was, not to put too fine a point on it, insultingly low, certainly in the region you mention. Dealers have to make a living too, I understand that, but not at my expense. Additionally, his association with Paul Thorpe is not a positive to my mind.

    Thorpe promotes the Edinburgh guy quite often and, I agree, it's not a great association. I've mentioned it before that BQ Watches were staggeringly low ball for me, over 4k less than the Geordie lads, whom I like and rate. BQ are another business pushed by Thorpe. Just saying.

    Thorpe seems to have appointed himself as spokesperson for the watch-buying public and, of course, the font of all knowledge if it has a dial, hands and tells the time. I can't bear his output and stopped watching him months ago.

    I offered 3 watches to WF over the past 18 months.

    Would not quote on one, lowballed on another and a good price on a third.

    Sold the other 2 for what I was looking for on C24.

    I've not heard of BQ but on your latter points regarding Thorpe, I couldn't agree more - unbearable.

    WF offered me 50% of what I paid them (in January 2022) for a 2019 Tudor Pelagos in Blue.

    That was upsetting.

    So after reading this thread, I've tried SubDial and we'll see if they'll give me something approaching reasonable.

    Subdial hit and miss for me. A few I have offered they said they wont buy as they already have another of the same model in stock!

    Yes but I personally prefer that honesty over being lowballed.

    He thought I was clueless and spun a yarn about what Id paid for my GMT in 2000, applied inflation and added a hundred pounds as if he was doing me a favour - the offer was half what I achieved elsewhere.

    Sounds like EWC really take the piss. Karma and all that - maybe not such a surprise.

    I'm assuming the non-WIS are his usual clients. But 50% below what was market rate speaks for itself.

    Did he have a mouth full of plumbs when you knew him at school?

    Not at all. He was a very nice guy and I'm sure he still is. His pricing is off that's all.

    C24 is perfectly fine in my experience, however they take 6.5% commission which can obviously stack up.
