BLNR was last December. Just walked into Watches of Switzerland Regent street and they had one hidden away in the back. Really surprising, as it was literally a week before Xmas. Daytona came in 10 days later, same thing.

Well done!!! I had a white dial SS Daytona that I waited for but didn't bond with it and ended up flipping it.

I much prefer the BLNR I think it's an incredible watch. I also love the new Air king so much and picked one of them up a few weeks ago before price increase.

Watch gallery in Westfields, White City have a Deep Sea in stock this evening. Along with 2xTT Subs (1 blue and 1 black). They also had a Milgauss and the usual spread of YM1/2's.

I live in Australia but am visiting the UK soon and wondering about picking up a GMTII BLNR but it sounds like that might be hard to find!

'might be hard to find' is the understatement of the year!...try 'impossible'

At UK list price of £6550? Probably not a chance.
However there are many around £1-2k more at grey sellers.

I just spotted the most expensive one recently at £8500.

Definitely worth you having a ring or visit to some ADs but I'll be staggered if you find a BLNR at an AD at list without being on a list.

Good luck of course.

I would recommend a quick day trip to Denmark. Was there in January and their main AD in Copenhagen had everything most people could want including the BLNR (but not the Ceramic Daytona of course...). Pricing in DKR is not as attractive as the UK, but once you get your VAT refunded as you will be able to as a non EU resident (between 17-19.5% depending on spend) it's pretty good!

A nice selection at Fraser Hart, Brent cross this evening - they had a Sub No date, Explorer I and a Explorer II with a white dial, 2x TT subs (1 blue and 1 black). They had some daytona's (not SS of course) and a spread of YM I and II's.

Iconic watches are offering £40 off lol.
If you find one in stock, the rrp is £4,150, I'd push for the £150 off and be delighted if you get it...they may let you walk.

Make sure you try it on, I found it very underwhelming on the wrist.
The blue on the other hand I think looks better on the wrist. However in oh it's I much preferred the Rhodium.
