To clarify : did you ever want or express interest in the PM piece?

No luxury item is that important.

Ask for the green dial version. Sweet watch. You'll probably end up loving it more then the Daytona. Plus it's way more functional and easier to read. The Daytona has what the germans call , biltenhype. Or in layman's terms, built in hype.

I would do it. That Daytona is going for $25k at gray so it's like getting the gold one for $20k.

Happens all the time. Buy both. Stop by the grey dealer on the way home and cash out. Tell them to call the AD for the warranty cards on your way out the door

People on the forums actually surprised these things happen? A lot of ADs out there do some sort of bundling tactic to non-familiar customers and frankly even well-known clients.

If you don't like the deal, simply don't buy from them. You have to remember they are not a charity or non-profit. They are a business; whatever the AD believes would maximise their profits (whether you agree or not), they have to explore it especially when they only get a minimal amount of SS professional watches. You shop for the best deal; they sell to maximise profit.

As for the deal itself, if you wanted the GMT as well, why not. Or if you can relinquish either piece to better net your overall cost, why not as well. Just see what math works best for you.

I'd be more objective and see if it makes sense from a business perspective. If you don't want the gmt, and you sell immediately losing maybe $5 grand, it's like paying $17,000 for the Daytona. That's still 7 grand less than they are worth?

This happens a lot. They sell watches to their best customers. Itís a business. Buying a PM bumps you up on the list. I donít see anything wrong with this as the list for the Daytona is over 10 years. They wonít just let you have a Daytona without good purchase history. Itís the world we live in.

Not really. First of all itís local so heís paying taxes on that gold watch which he loses another $3k. Then if itís the black face itís worth like $23k. In other words the price difference is $2k and if he pays taxes on Daytona and can avoid that from a DavidSw the difference is only $1k. But he freezes $30k to get there and had to deal with reselling etc. I can see it still be worth it if you buy on a cc giving you miles but it doesnít become a great deal.
