On the upside I waited only 1 year!

In the UK it is 4-5 years minimum waiting lists, with a lot of dealers refusing to add further names to the list.
I recently paid USD 15,400 (GBP 12,500) from an AD in Saudi for the new batman 126710BLNR. So over GBP 5000 over the UK list price..similarly though I did not have to wait long to get it!

I recently purchased my 18/SS DJ41 with oyster bracelet and fluted bezel from my AD at MSRP and am okay with that. Rolex was certainly savvy to limit stock as they have to drive up demand and $$. I remember the good old days of buying my first DJs and Explorer II back in the '90s. We have come a long way since then.

Cheers!

I have noticed that the USD prices listed in the original post are retail prices WITHOUT tax.
Do prices in other countries include tax?

Yes, AFAIK US and Canada are among the few countries that do not include tax in their prices. All other countries include tax in their price. And that is reflected in the chart (where under the currency it states the tax percent.) From the chart it seems like all countries except Brazil, US and Canada include tax in the listed prices.

I just paid USD10k at AD for a GMT II black. I think it's a bit over MSRP but then Rolex stopped making them so I was happy to pay.
