I have to take issue with this:

Your comment is probably made out of frustration toward those on here who are "jaded" with the Rolex experience, and though I cannot speak for everyone, my post wasn't meant to be "mean" or "pessimistic." I genuinely think that the AD salesman laughed to himself the moment OP left the shop, and I wouldn't put money on the AD getting anything for OP in 6 month's time, or even a year.

Many of us (who have landed allocation pieces from ADs at MSRP) recognize that the OP made a couple crucial mistakes:
  1. He purchased an otherwise available non-allocation piece from the grey market, instead of using the opportunity to help out a Sales Associate and in turn, speed up his delivery date- and, in turn, show the salesman he's more concerned about saving a thousand bucks on a DJ rather than doing business with said salesman.

  2. His list sounds like a flipper's list, and no offense, OP, but few could blame the salesman for thinking that. In fact, I welcome the opportunity for anyone here to ask their AD how they recognize flippers. The first or second tell-tale is that "they list all the stainless steel sports models as their desired watches."

    And who can blame them? Did Rolex come out with a "secret pheromone sauce" that they coat on the stainless steel GMTs, Subs, Sky-Dwellers, and Daytonas? Something they put on those watches but not others?

Exactly my point.
