This bullshit is exactly why I refuse to buy Rolex. Their practice is beyond disgusting.

Rolex, like any other luxury goods manufacturer, knows there exists a large, growing market of young money spenders who don't really have to go through the hardship of making money. They don't ask about RRP and the only reason to buy a timepiece is to stay current with the pack. Price is not an issue.

This is the best way to raise Rolex from a tool watch company to the luxury segment.

It is a case of too many people chasing after too few goods. That's how flippers can sell sport models with a huge premium.

Forget about getting on the waiting list because there are many more people ahead of you.

Cheers.

I just walked into a PP boutique in London last few days asking for a nautilus (any model), the sales rep said you had to buy 2 core models before they could offer it.

Other options are:

1) Buy SS models from grey market at a premium or

2) Buy the two tone or gold models at retail price. You may even be able to get some discount.

It’s easier to get the sub or gmt from UAE. Starting this 18th Nov, tourist can get back 4.25% VAT refund. So it will be worth if you happen to be shopping in UAE. Try visit the flagship store in Dubai Mall, it’s definitely worth visit with great and friendly service.

Actually waiting list is a fake. I’ve got a friend working inside Rolex. They said if u spent plenty of money or u have good connection with the manager. U can get any watch easily.

Just came back from Europe via Amsterdam.

At the Schiphol airport, they had a Yach Master II in yellow gold, a Yach Master 40 in platinum, an Air King and... euh no that’s all of course.

The two ladies there spend their days telling men entering the shop that they have nothing to sell.

I didn’t know it was so difficult to buy a Rolex submariner.  Was thinking of selling mine but now may just keep it

 ;D luckily i can only afford their poster. jk
with respect to rolex, they are trying to control customer from flipping their watches.
in my humble opinion, rolex knows better to control the market than omega various speedmaster and limited editions.
playing hard to get, maybe thats why women like rolex  :Dancing_banana:
all the best on getting ur rolex sir. dont forget to update us in watch reviews  :Cheers:

Thanks for sharing.
I was in London end of last year and visited at lease 4 AD. No luck and don't even put you on waiting list unless you are local citizen. Then i was in Geneva airport, also no luck.
After seeing all the above sifu's comments, looks like you need to spend more either on AD or Grey market.

Also in Schiphol airport Amsterdam, they had Batman & Hulk at their AD just the day before I was there. Just missed it!

But of course, gone within 20 mins after they displayed it.

With the right relationship with an AD no matter where in the world can get you SS models. However, in Malaysia there is no way in getting a SS model if you are an average joe.

Cheeky mention, I have a new GMT 2 Black if anybody is interested in grabbing of my hands.  :)

when i wanna buy submariner, i put my name under most AD waiting list...
for a year, no one called me yet.

I am shocked. I bought my sub nd ceramic about several years back. Walked into the Rolex Penang and bought it without any issues. If i remember correctly they had Subs, GMTs, SDs, and SeaDwellers on display! And several of each!
