Have said this multiple times. The grey/ad defending and hype stuff is silly at times. Itís incredibly suspicious

I would hardly say that the supply is ďcarefully controlledĒ. Most of the in demand inventory ends up with the grey dealers. That couldnít be more evident this year than in years past.

Rolex is still a mass produced watch.

Paid msrp plus tax came out to be 16k...So grey is only 15-20% more than the all in walkout cost from AD. I would not usually suggest paying over retail, but with recent run up in gold price and weaker dollar I fully expect a price increase by 2021 to compensate. Yeah get the watch at the AD if you can over the next few months if not the grey mrkt is not the end of the world.

circa 2000 watches a day is hardly mass produced, 2000 total not of each model!


i think the source for grays is people selling to grays for instant profits. dealers dont even need to try and sell rolex, it sells itself. the dealers problem is not enough stock.

Greys seem to be putting up prices of the CHNR at the same level as the Pepsi. I think its just the new demand / supply equilibrium for the CHNR. If CHNRs were priced cheaper than the Pepsi I would imagine alot of people would choose the CHNR over the Pepsi (more value)...
I personally don’t see why the CHNR should be cheaper than the Pepsi...
Having said that I think over the new few years prices for the Pepsi may reduce as Rolex produces more - to me it looks like the Pepsi will be in the Rolex catalogue for many many years... At that point prices of the CHNR will be slightly higher than Pepsi...

I had a CHNR for about 5 months. It didnít stay in my collection because it felt like a fad watch to me, and the RG didnít grow on me. I doubt Iíll ever go RG again on any watch.

It’s a polarizing reference isn’t it?

I think you either bond with the color and it works well with your skin tones or it just doesn’t.

There’s no denying it’s a real beauty though

Fashion will change on TT/Steel...there is really no wrong Sub/GMTs. Rolex has a lockdown on those two functions in the market. Best of luck...please don't buy and flip. It ruins it for someone who might actually want it in their collection.

Its an interesting concept to discuss what something should sell for. What can that be based on except subjective opinions? The after market price is solely determined by supply and demand and is what it is at any given time. It could stay the same, go up or go down. If and when watches are no longer the cool thing, most Rolex watches will be trading well under MSRP.

Iíve been waiting for this piece for a while. Finally got the call from my AD and when I tried it on it just wasnít for me. Skin tone wasnít dark enough for it. I still think itís a beautiful piece and will continue to admire it from a distance.

CHNR is cheaper because the demand for pepsi is significant higher. Note that people who are interested in two-tone watches is way lower.

The greys just push and push and push. All good things come to an end imo.

Edit - honestly some bull markets or inflation related changes seem to have no end. Bizarre times!
