3186 movement is the reason on the GMT. Still dumb.

Seems high but when new Sea-Dwellers are $11k, it seems a little more realistic. Watch prices across the board are insane.

You have to have money that you haven't earned yourself to spend so much on some aluminum bezel Rolex

Stuff like this makes me want to get money out from savings and buy that damn 14060m that I want now, or I might find myself just not getting one ever.

Honestly, it’s not a bad idea if it’s feasible and you really want one. The prices are never going down again IMO. If you ever need to flip it very likely won’t be an issue.

Yup it is completely nuts yet some will contemplate the idea just because it happens to have a green bezel.

I love watches but there is a point where it just turns stupid and with all the Rolex mother ship restrictions on ss models it has become stupid faster than I ever thought possible

A 16710 would be about the only Rolex w/cyclops that I could see getting. Looking at Chrono24, the spread isn't too bad.

The wheels are turning in my head, but without expert guidance...a pipe dream.

at TRF they carry David high on their shoulders, so it will sell for sure.

Over there people were actually applauding him for getting the new Rolex Pepsi and selling it for 20K with stickers and all. Rolex needs to stop it ASAP.

I’m all for a free market, but this “grey dealer” stuff has made it virtually impossible for an average buyer to even find a stainless sports model at MSRP.

With my two decade long relationship with my AD, they have taken good care of me in the past. I’ve recently learned there will be no more of that with sports models. That said, when I’ve scored a deal on a Rolex and then decided to sell it, I’ve passed the deal along to the next guy here. Even if I had excess cash I wouldn’t buy from a grey seller because it perpetuates their existence.

It’s impressive how wildly opinions vary on DavidSW.
Care to elaborate why?

I personally wouldn’t buy a Rolex from anybody other than the Wu Mart (he helped me get both my explorerII and the 14060m, thanks again Matt :cheers: ) or some members here, but many love dealing with David SW.

I just got one a few weeks ago so I definitely see the appeal, but I’m not convinced the only way for prices is UP.

At the next recession (a matter of when, not if) I bet the scarcity of Rolexes will disappear.
I believe Rolex is aware of the cyclical nature of this thing, and this is the real reason why they’re not ramping up production faster.

It’s a terrible thing to be a luxury brand and find yourself with excess production.
