just bought the 116618LB .. very excited..

Well, after wanting this watch for decades, I decided to sell my GMT II, and some gold bullion and get this beauty.. I don't have pics, as the AD is shipping it to my honolulu address tomorrow.. I was torn between the black dial, and the blue... but that blue is so beautiful, even if a bit bling bling.. I was also torn as to get the GMT in YG, but it just doesn't feel as nice in the hand for me.

I'm curious though why on the official USA Rolex website they say "Price on request" seems odd, no?

I just hope I can wear it and not feel self conscious.. the PP 5711R is bling but more subtle.. Oh well, I love it, and I don't care what people think, right?

Very nice choice.

I've been thinking about upgrading my 116613LB to the 116618LB

But I'm only 21 years old so I'm not sure if it would suit me.

It's the case with all the PMs. They are all price on request ....how much did you end up paying OP from the 34250 MSRP?

Congrats!

Congrats on a beautiful piece! The price on request seems to be on the
higher priced watches full PM etc, maybe to prevent sticker shock to the non WIS and also or as a deterrent to criminal idealogy... Perhaps for both

MSRP for WG subs models around 37ish, 20% would be decent discount.

exactly.... very fair when I did some research and saw that even gray market sellers are in the 28-29K US price range. This is with an AD I have a relationship with and get my name on the warranty, worth it!

Congrats. The price on request is in US. When I am travelling to Asia or Europe, I can see prices for most PM pieces.

It's a beauty, just like the 5711R, will make an awesome RG YG power pair.
