Hi everybody,

I am after my first Rolex- just discovering that itís pretty much impossible to buy a Sports model from an AD. I am based in Riyadh and travel to the UK, US and Dubai quite frequently.

Any tips or guidance on how to get a watch from a retailer would help and if this is absolutely impossible, do let me know that as well.

This is a great forum and happy to be part of it.

Welcome on board John, I live in Riyadh too, other than daytona and gmt Pepsi all other model typically secured between couple of weeks to few months. You may also look at aftermarket they offer discounts in many cases. Happy to help if needed.
