Thoughts and availability on 5296r-001

I've come across this beautiful timepiece on WatchFinder. Interested in the more wise and seasoned WIS's thoughts on 5296r-001. It's a discontinued piece and I've seen some used but what are the chances of finding this piece new? The used I came across only had a 13% discount off the original price. Is it worth calling the Salons? I find the dial extremely beautiful, I think it gives the Calatrava a bit of a more casual look and the blue hands are also just perfection.

As you said - this model is discontinued so none of ad has it...check out on chrono24 for brand new model...dial and blue hands are perfectly made and are beautiful - fits with jeans and suit...
