Buying RO bracelet separately

Other than the boutiques, where would be the best place to buy a gold RO bracelet for the best price?

Bump. Anyone have any leads on where I can purchase a RG bracelet (used or new) for 15400 at a lower price than msrp?

What do you guys think about buying a buying a rose gold bracelet off of a preowned RO in the ny diamond district? Risky?

I would go to the boutique when dealing with parts. It is always safer to go to AP

Ive been offered a mint rose gold bracelet for 18k. That seems steep, does anyone know what msrp from AP is?

Also if the 15400OR is discontinued does that mean AP direct may no longer offer it to existing owners?

18k is not too steep if "mint". It is what it is. New from Clearwater will be a little higher than that, but not much. If you're going to play with the big boy watches, get used to the big boy prices.
Good Luck on the quest.

If its only a little more makes sense to buy new then thx!

oh and enough with the big boy stuff, it assumes a lot and projects even more.

Apologies... didn't mean to offend.. may have sounded wrong.
I added a gold bracelet to my 15400, I went with new from AP Clearwater. If I remember correctly was about 19, but I had them add an additional link. This is an expensive hobby.

18k is definitely less than what an AD would charge for the parts. I bought the pounder over the summer on the RG bracelet and asked what parts would be for a swap to a croc strap and that cost alone was close to 6k, lol.

I would definitely not trust the grey market for parts, and if you plan on going into the AD to purchase the bracelet, get ready to take a bath!

Chill. The price for a bracelet brand new from the boutique is 18,100 excluding tax. That is the price and i would for sure deal with the boutique or APSC directly
