Anyone know which places do 0% as id rather use someone else's money than my own if possible?

Better to get a 0% card depending on how much/how long you need to pay it off?

Yep. You will definitely struggle with 0% anywhere these days on an SS model especially. Like wb55 says best to get 0% card for purchases or balance transfers.

If that doesn't work ask Wb55 to lend you some cash, he has just come into some :-)

I can see the pull of getting nearly 50% interest on you investment within a few days, but I just couldn't imagine doing that to my AD. I know it's all business but I would feel like I had just shafted a friend doing it.

Don't get me wrong I am not big drinking buddies with my AD but he is a nice guy and always looked after me in the past....I just couldn't do it.

Not slagging anyone off, I just personally would feel guilty.

I know what you mean. 90% of me feels terrible and like a total dick for doing it but 10% of me thinks a lot more people than would admit would have sold it but maybe not be as forthcoming about doing the deal. That is probably my way of trying to justify it but I do agree, it's a shitty thing to do but almost £4.5k is a huge amount of money and I just couldn't say no. Didn't buy it to sell it but did end up selling about a week after buying. Same end result I guess.

It doesn't help the used market's prices, but it is your watch and the AD got paid in full so there's nothing to really feel guilty about. It's just the way the market is now and that is entirely Rolex's own devising.

As I said wb55 I'm not judging you, because for those of us who have to scrimp and save to buy our timepieces nearly £4.5k is a big chunk of money that you can do a lot with. Especially when someone is their actuallly offering the money to you. It's a massive decision to have to make.

AK797, whilst I agree with you that it is Rolex who are throwing fuel on the fire of the grey dealer market for all of their other in demand pieces by restricting them, in the SD43 case it's a new watch so initial demand will always outstrip supply. Only time will tell if Rolex let this model go the same way as the DaytonaC and the Dblue.
If they do then Rolex have again created a scenario where people like wb55 will be tempted to sell on because of the cash incentive and who can blame them. It would be debatable who actually made the most money out of that watch Rolex or wb55 !!

Ive got the funds if there isnt any 0% available so not a disaster. Its just nice to be able to use someone else's money for a while for free.

Drats, just saw this and already purchased the black GV Milgauss at Harrod's, and it's non refundable. That said, I'm very happy with the purchase and was leaning Milgauss anyway, so no harm done.

I really appreciate you letting me know and keeping me in mind. Thank you.

That's really run of the mill stock.
I'd say every AD in the UK has these models.

Models of interest are more SS Subs, SS GMT, Hulk, BLNR, D-Blue etc.
