How long will an ordered Datejust gold and stainless take to come in ?

Iím sure itís repetitive at this point but my AD did not have the Datejust 41 yellow gold and stainless I wanted. They had a few but not the champagne dial I wanted. Neither did two other ADs locally. I ordered it and they told me they canít give me a delivery date but it may be two weeks or it could be two months. Has anyone had any issues with ordering gold and stainless from Rolex? I completely understand the shortage of stainless steel Rolexís and was even told from the ADs that they wouldnít be able to ďorderĒ a stainless watch. They could however order the gold and stainless so I went ahead and did it.... now I am impatiently waiting for this damn thing to come in and itís been two weeks. Already driving me nuts

Tell this to someone on a Daytona waitlist to drive them nuts. Two weeks is nothing, ask to be on a Daytona, GMT or sub SS wait list and see how that compares. Great choice btw.

Lol I feel a tiny bit better and wonder... are those who are waiting for Daytonaís, GMT and Subs asking for all stainless steel? Iím hoping the fact that I ordered gold and stainless itíll be the minimum wait time. Also, Iím bothered even more because my loyalty is an Achilles heel. Another AD had the watch I wanted but I really wanted to give the business to my normal AD. Iíve purchased everything my wife and I own off of them. Felt like it was the right thing to do... now not so much haha.

will be around 2-4 weeks if rolex usa has it, could be 2-3 months if it has to come from overseas. you'll probably have it in a few weeks

And the fact that they have no real idea simply tells me Rolex and its marketing partners, the ADs, don't have a clue what they are doing from a corporate point of view. How hard is it to install an inventory system? Frankly these guys are operating by the seat of their pants in a way that folks operated in the 1950's. And I don't buy this Rolex "mystique" thing. This is corporate malfeasance.

Sorry for the rant and good luck on getting your watch soonest.

Excellent choice. It’s a classic configuration so not surprising there’s occasionally a bit of a wait on this (though obviously not the same as the SS sport watch craziness). I was also after a TT DJ41 champagne dial/jubilee bracelet early this year. ADs in my area didn’t have it and eventually I got it from an out of town AD.

The watch does not disappoint.

I’ve ordered one for my wife. The told me it would take two to four weeks, and it was just two weeks until it arrived at the AD.

I would look at a reseller for one with warranty card dated 2019 and enjoy the discount, since it's unlikely you will get a discount from the AD on a DJ 41 at this time. Enjoy the discounts until the inventory of DJ goes down and then all the resellers will raise the price to above retail. price increases coming soon.

Yep I am hoping it falls into that time frame. Need it before I go to Bermuda

How long? Nobody knows at this point. ADs have no idea when or what they can get. Hard to run a business like that, I would think. I cannot think of another business which is run this way.

Did you try Long's in Burlington? I was there on Friday and thought I saw one (Fluted/Jubilee).

I know but friendly with my AD. I saw a couple locally but loyal to my jeweler. That might change if he doesnít get in quickly... Iím hoping since Iíve seen two others locally that the dial I want wonít be too hard or take too long to come in from an order. Wishful thinking?
