Better hurry and jump on that one special piece my friend! Also make sure the AD doesn't steal a link from you and sell it on the black market.

I was told last year by an AD that they would increase the price by 8% in Oct 2013.

Didn't happen, it's a sales tactic. Prices will increase eventually, but they would not tell a sales rep when and how much it would be before it happens.

My understanding is that ADs as well as sales reps are about as in the dark as us mere consumers regarding Rolex price increases. My local AD told me once they get 3 days notice max. Rolex doesn't want ADs to place big orders just in time to beat an increase.

Obviously at some point they will go up, so eventually one of these threads will be correct and the OP of that thread will look like a genius.

Went in to attempt to try on the BLNR and was told by the saleswoman at the local AD that they didn't have any, but that I better order it because it might be discontinued and that the 11610LV had just been discontinued and Rolex would not be producing any more. She managed to say this all with a straight face. I now have to drive to Scottsdale just to try on a watch without being sickened by nonsense. Take it with a grain of salt.

Do you mean 116610LV? The 5 digit LV already was discontinued.

Just because people are well dress and behind the counter does not imply they are the expert, and that goes to all profession. But if that's the case, I hope the 114060 gets the cut too.

Indeed. She tried to get me to buy the Hulk in the case even though I already have one and clearly know that it is still being produced.

The sales lady at T told me that rolex will definitely be raising prices this year as they didn't take price last year.

I don't think she was being deceitful, but just trying to sound knowledgable and in the know.
