Anyone contact their AD about a Daytona Meteorite yet?

Has anyone expressed interest/ordered a Daytona meteorite? If so, which one?

I think the rose gold with oyster bracelet looks absolutely stunning. Waiting on my AD to circle back with more info regarding availability. I would’ve gone for it on OF, but Rolex still hasn’t rolled out GlideLock yet to the Daytona OF models! It’s literally the last OF line without it.

I don’t think legibility will be a concern for the yellow and rose gold models due to the colored hands against the dial. WG I could see it being an issue for some.

Text sent at 12.01 CET the moment it was announced. Is that a real or demo one on your wrist? Whilst I appreciate the YG and RG versions, I'm after the WG OF - just looks awesome IMHO.

Itís actually not my photo. I got it from ďWatch Pro SiteĒ. Judging from that photo though, it looks to be a demo model given the time is set to typical Rolex demo time 10:11 and 32~ seconds.

Ha... I feel like being at home! I placed my order a day in advance due to leaked images from catalogue. WG OF Meteorite is by far my favourite! I was told June-July 2021.

I really like the WG OF model... Iím even considering trading in my 116500 for it and try to upgrade to that.

Anyone have any input on the Oysterflex models compared to the stainless? I heard they have slightly bigger lugs. Iím also guessing the rubber strap would be a bit more comfortable.

I feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t think the meteorite works with the Daytona at all. Pepsi goes much better with the meteorite.

48 hours before, I had told myself "No more watches this year".

24 hours before, my company was notified of a defense contract win that those of you 'in the know' saw in the press release and I thought... "well..."

And then the announcement.

Then the text.

A very nice few days!!!

I am sure you are not the only one! I think They work on both in different ways. But to each their own.

To be honest.

My dream oyster flex watch would be a white face milgauss in white gold.

Ain't. Never. Gonna. Happen.

And me being first in line for it changes absolutely nothing.

Hong Kong, CTF dealer says 1 year for meteor with purchase history + gratuity swipe after retail, 0 history, sorry can't help.

All Daytonas in HK are accounted for. Sold before delivered. LOL, they will be in the grey windows at Causeway Bay next week.

To be honest I think Rolex should bring the hammer down in Rolex in HK, the ADs are the greys now, all the Grey dealers have NOS sitting, I know they're not moving with the out-of-control prices they've set. no way in hell.

Yes, the experience is getting worse each day. Grey market dealers are getting desperate, too. Some are now asking for 500HKD just to try on a watch...

LOL was this TSE's collection in CWB?!?!?

100% out of control and true.

LMAO, unreal. They get upset now if you try negotiating. When negotiation before was respected and accepted.

HK is rabid for Daytonas, if they look at your wrist they expect to see Daytona or Patek, or else you're nothing.

Every other Rolex reference outside of Daytona and Hulk is invisible and can be had at fair market.

Contact for what reason? I see people saying things like, ďI already put my name down fir one.Ē

Did I miss something? Did Rolex release a new ordering system today?
