Wow! I'm seeing a handful of BLNRs in mid-12k range these days. In December I picked up a 21x Polar Explorer II for ~$9k and a BLNR for ~$13.5k, and both were 'best deals I'd seen in a while & since', but now I'm seeing 'better for cheaper' in a few places (both at that price 'could use' a service).

That said, I'm glad to see it! I just wish a BLRO would get cheap enough to add into my watch case!

Its not going to bottom out as long as dealers are stuck with pieces that they paid too much for and are unwilling to take the hit. They will keep inflating the prices by selling the watches to other dealers on credit at the inflated price in order to show that they are still selling at higher prices. These watches never actually sell but just move from one dealer to another. They are hoping that if the consumer sees that these watches are being moved at the higher price then maybe other watches in their inventory will sell to unsuspecting consumers at the higher price. Its called price manipulation.

Yeah, a lot of price manipulation going on. Only thing Id add is that the buck has to stop somewhere - debt will come due, and liquidity will be needed by dealers. When that is, who knows

I'm still quite surprised they're that high. They're essentially a XXXL datejust that the vast majority of wrists can't sport. The other large-sized rolex models tend to sell under retail on the secondary market. Will be interesting to see where they end up in the long term.

Exactly my thought as well. I owned a two tone skydweller, it was a gorgeous watch but just too bulky on the wrist and too large that it loses its elegance and wear ability compared to a datejust. I sold it and bought a datejust in 2020 which I still have :)

I love the functional turning besel and the way of displaying months, if they could just reduce it to a 40mm and 12mm or less thin I would jump at it in a heartbeat. Otherwise, the datejust is my preference.

Good point. Id love to have one at retail. The thickness kind of sucks though.

Oh for sure, they're an interesting model and I definitely understand the appeal of the movement. They do wear massive though, there's just so much dial and shiny bezel. I try not to judge peoples taste too harshly, but almost every wrist I've seen these on are at least an inch too small. Maybe Rolex thought they'd be too similar looking to the DJ at 40mm? I can see them trading well below retail once the heat dies off. We'll see though.

By ‘fails’ you must mean Rolex successfully selling and profiting from every Sky-Dweller and YM2 they produced for 12 and 18 years of production? Or by fail you mean Rolex didn’t make it specifically for your wrist?

Fun timepieces for fun people. Not everyone is a clone.

Around 10.5 to 11.5 on moda, depending on year and condition. The subs are continuing to tick down, albeit slowly.

The 116710BLNR's don't seem to be moving much at least on DAVIDSW's site.
