OP can you say where that was? It’s a good selection actually.

Also the prices on display reflects the recent price increase in 1st October.
True Not seen one in window for a while though.

Look closely guys.......
Pretty clear it’s a TT model. You can see the gold and the non ceramic bezel.
A regular sight across ADs.

Their mild strategy of curbing flippers by vetting and restricting allocations is in reaction to the huge rise in demand in 2017 as they freely admit, but Rolex are not behind this transformation of the market for Rolex and PP and AP sports models, they are just the beneficiaries.

Ah yes I see that now on the pushers. I still haven’t seen one in a window (in London) for ages though. Would have expected it to be snapped up given the ceramic Daytona is a pipe dream.

And yes, I know, that isn’t a ceramic one, but I expect all Daytonas to pretty much disappear before they hit displays, let alone one with a pre ceramic bezel, particularly during our sports model famine... which has reached biblical proportions
