Grey Hulk rising

Noticed grey prices for the hulk are creeping up to the mid £10,000s and even early £ 11,000s do you think this is a reaction to the recent price increase?

As long as people pay it, the price madness will continue

That has to be a joke. That's well into Pepsi and Daytona land at that grey market price.

This madness has been happening for quite some time. Buyers are driving up the prices worldwide. And the biggest group of these buyers are the Chinese.

People have to stop paying these ridiculous prices. It’s really getting out of hand.

What pisses me off the most though is private sellers (quiyeba few on this forum) who are asking the same as the grey market dealers! The greed in the watch world is disgusting. Plus literally zero morals that these TRF members are trying to rip off other TRF members.

Stupid following the stupid. Thats all it is.

All the grays have become millionaires within 12 months - good on them. I would prey on these people as well if I was a gray dealer. Make as much $$ as I can while the market is like this.

Agree let these people pay the stupid inflated prices for £10k you can get so many other better quality watches.Itís a fear of missing out for some people. I am so over it a few months back when they were £8.5k I actually thought of paying the extra.

But I am now just not interested in the brand and feel with so much demand itís just not that exclusive anymore. Everyone wants one and will have it eventually I liked Rolex because it was exclusive doesnít feel like that anymore.

Hulk fun fact, his first appearance in the comics was indeed grey. It was later changed to green.

Testing the market. The prices will continue to walk up as long as people will pay.
