UK SS Sports Stock

Given we appear to have rationing on these models. I plan to help out fellow TRF members as and when I see them in an AD!

As of 1705 today Watches of Switzerland Oxford Street had a Deepsea black face in the window.

Fantastic idea! Has anyone seen a Hulk at an AD recently? I've been looking for one for quite a while now....

Thanks!

Could this be due to the falling value of the ? Have prices gone up there since Brexit caused a depreciation of sterling?

I live in Australia but am visiting the UK soon and wondering about picking up a GMTII BLNR but it sounds like that might be hard to find!

Well we managed to save Marmite from the price risers, so let's try to save the sports Rolex from extinction too! Altho a price rise will help supply most.

At UK list price of 6550? Probably not a chance.
However there are many around 1-2k more at grey sellers.

I just spotted the most expensive one recently at 8500.

Definitely worth you having a ring or visit to some ADs but I'll be staggered if you find a BLNR at an AD at list without being on a list.

Good luck of course.

I would recommend a quick day trip to Denmark. Was there in January and their main AD in Copenhagen had everything most people could want including the BLNR (but not the Ceramic Daytona of course...). Pricing in DKR is not as attractive as the UK, but once you get your VAT refunded as you will be able to as a non EU resident (between 17-19.5% depending on spend) it's pretty good!

I think every AD has a sea-dweller, that plus EXP2, YM, Milgauss etc.

The interesting models currently will be subc, Blnr, Air King New, D-Blue, DaytonaC, LVc

These are the scarce ones just now especially D-Blue and BLNR

I picked up tha d blue last week and am on the list for the blnr. Seeing them side by side though worries it might be too small.

It is noticing smaller. The pcl on the blnr help it to stand out. The main bonus of the blnr is it is oh so comfortable. Like a dream on the wrist compared to the D Blue. Its like I'm not even wearing it. Not to say the D blue is uncomfortable, but there is a clear difference.

Both fab watches congratulations. Would have to say the GMT is a perfect size of watch for me, I think the deep sea too big rather than GMT too small. However depending on your physical size you could be right. The deep sea I've tried on and it's way too big on me. Good luck whatever you choose.

##Rolex 'Windsor' had a Deep Sea Black a few days back

Been around London with friends trying to get a GMT or Sub no date
No chance, just going on waiting lists.

My mate just payed 5600 for a GMT 2 years old.,,really wanted ASAP for his 50th, couldn't wait

Deep Blue - cant even be added to list
Just get told they haven't seen one for months. Obviously different situation in the US..we all understand that.

If it was the 116710ln, then yes, that's exactly what the list price is. And 2 years old... a little bit of madness (IMHO).

Cheers,

Picked up a UK Explorer 214270 2016 MK2 this week for few quid below Rolex RRP.
Couldn't be any happier with that.
