I don't disagree -- I have been watching grays try to relist over and over but unwilling to move on price. They got in at too high of a price, simple as that.

I'm not looking to flip, so essentially MSRP + tax was perfect for me since they are hard to come by out of the coffin. Super happy, wears wonderfully, and it will eventually make it to my kids

the rest of the models are only LISTING at MSRP plus tax combined.

it's over. slow bleed rest of the year. it will never be back to a 29k ss blro or a 52k white ss daytona. now when i mean never in 50 years with inflation maybe.
good to hear the hype surrounding Rolex is slowly coming to an end. they make nice watches, but not worth paying over MSRP!

That one on moda is watch only and shows wear. The 116520 David has is a better buy for my tastes.

I'd put in offers @ $25K if I were you (provided you're comfortable to purchase at that amount,) just bid and see how it goes (also-- don't be surprised if it works out, and you have a deal.)

To each his own but I donít think the black dial Daytona is worth $25K. Heck, I wouldnít pay over $20K for either the black or white. After waiting 2+ years for a white dial, my lust for a Daytona has diminished a bit. Now I feel that itíd be great to get one close to MSRP but if not, then so be it. I ainít paying that much over MSRP.

A fair point. Iíve been waiting for more than a year to secure the most basic of Rolex models and no luck. Iíve even spent on some jewelry for the Mrs. Iíve already gone gray on a GmT. I figure Iíd get laughed out of the store to be on the list for a Daytona. Hence why Iím seeing the market change and wondering if now is the time

I assume you mean 116500LN? If so, $25k is too much. They're currently sitting at $24k and dropping. Do not pay that much for a daytona unless it's made of gold.

Yes correct, apologies. I was hoping to find a NIB, no luck finding anything under 26k. Where are you seeing 24k?

No one should be buying now. Market will get only softer and softer for the next 12 months

Thatís like saying donít buy the iPhone 15 cos itíll drop in a year. Well of course it will. These things are meant to be worth more than rrp anyway. Buy what you want when you want and donít be afraid to negotiate

I agree that nobody should be buying anything modern that is essentially a commodity watch.

Anything vintage, rare, one off is a different story.

Moda. If you really have your heart set on a 116500, my strong suggestion would be to wait. Although this model is technically superseded, the 12 series haven't really hit the streets yet. Once they do, the 11 series will continue to drop, and hard. Have a look at the 11 series Subs for reference. The hype dogs don't like an old model.

There seems to have been a pretty significant price drop across the board over the last week.
