Are these really hot suddenly? I’ll ask, I’d be shocked if my dealer would have a problem getting one of these for you.

My dealer has already received his allocations on these for the year and will not have more until next summer. I think retail is more than fair...

Maybe consider a rose gold Schumacher.

 

I really like the summer edition, I missed one by one week when I went to Geneva, the boutique had one left but had a deposit down :rant:

No Patek nautilus is worth paying over MSRP. Did any of you check on Chrono 24 site ? With patience you could find one at a discount

Curious does any Nautilus ever sell below MSRP?

 

Yes , I have never owned own but I have numerous parteks below MSRP , some as much as 30% off . Have to be patient , like a car , the more of a hard on you have for a watch , the less likely you will be patient enough to get the right deal . None of them are collector pieces , so they will go down

:iamwithstupid: Fully agreed. If one wants to the first kid on the block to own the latest toy, one needs to pay a premium or at least pay full price for it. But if one has the patience and as the cliche goes, good things [will] come to those who wait.

AP ROO Summer Edition NIB I don’t want to pay over RRP. Thanks Ian

 

Currently searching. :) Should get back to you soon!

 

This should not be a problem even for a brand new watch.

They were not easy to find the other day. Almost all places I talked to do not have them at the moment and everyone is asking a stupid ridiculous premium. Some people laughed when I asked if they had any for close to MSRP.

I generally agree with that but by using that approach I’ve missed 3 limited editions which almost doubled in value :(

 

I am not desperate to have them so I don’t really care but I wish I pounced at RRP.

Reviving an old topic:  what’s the deal with online discounters (chrono24 or authenicwatch.com, DavidSW,  jomashop etc) versus buying from an authorized distributor.

My watch of 30 years isn’t working correctly and I want an automatic movement.  I started looking months ago and finally saw a watch that piqued my interest (Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra co-axial master chronometer).  There is a large price difference between a local authorized dealer and on-line pricing.  Also different warranties.  Omega is 5 year.  Jomashop is 2 year.  AuthenticWatch is 6 years but obviously it must be their own warranty.  I’ll call them Monday and inquire.

The watch should need little service for a very long time, but if it needs attention I don’t want to find a problem because I bought a “gray market” watch or something that is shunned by an authorized service center.  Or maybe I”m putting too much stock in that and it could be serviced by a legit outfit?

I’d like to get the best deal possible, and I don’t mind paying a bit more for a brick/mortar experience (I got to try it on and learn about it) but not 20-25% more.  But if buying through an authorized channel is important it may make sense.

I’m also researching value on a few watches that belonged to my Dad including a bubble back Rolex, an automatic Omega from 1956 that still works, and a 1997 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust that is working like a champ! (It’s my temp until I find something I love, IF I find something I love).  I’ve worn the same watch every day for 30 years happily,  I’m not one to change watches and I’d like to choose a watch that will last the next 30 years.

Hubby and I are very inexperienced in buying watches.  Any advice is appreciated.  

Watch I’m interested in:

1997 Rolex works great after sitting in a drawer for over a decade:

Bubble back - not sure from what year but it works

Omega given to Dad by his parents in 1956 - still works:
