Mark... Unfortunately You have to buy a lot of the junk to get an 11-03. Are you considering the NTPT? Personally I wouldnt entertain the TI or RG although beautiful they are big and thick so a scratch which is inevitable is going to drive You crazy!!!

I like the NTPT but not enough to buy it. I have learned to live with a few scratches here and there. The only other piece I was thinking about is the AP CONCEPT GMT. The new model is nice but I was told they are already sold out

It seems at this point they aren't selling 11-03s to anyone that walks in off the street. As far as I know, you have to have a buying history and a relationship to be considered.

All of the names are submitted to RM for approval prior to sale of an 11-03.

For example- I was offered a Red Quartz 11-03 a few weeks ago. When I said I would take it, I got a call a few days later letting me know that because I had already purchased a TI, RG, and NTPT 11-03, I would not be allowed to buy the red if I wanted the blue.

Basically, I was told it's one or the other. That's when I bought the white bubba instead and I am glad I did!

I love my 3 RMs and if I could own 10 of them I would but am I the only person turned off by this? I just find it so disheartening that they make it so difficult to buy these watches now.
