best option is to try for the no date sub. alternatively you can get the two-tone (the blue dial two-tone is gorgeous).

the black date sub and especially the hulk are hard to get.

even better is to wait for an occasion when you want to buy your wife a piece of jewelry. then ask for the no date sub and say you might buy something for your wife if they hook you up.

------------------------------------

also, it's a little more money, but you could check out the yachmaster I, which is like an upmarket sub but far less popular.

There is a two year waitlist for the desireable models if you dont want to pay over retail. Just get on one and wait. Two tones are not desireable and easy to find.

Your other option is to visit tourist trap dealers. They get a larger supply and move more inventory. I got mine in Venice. The dealer right on Wall Street by the Tiffanys (forgot their name) gets a sick number too. But the problem with tourist trap vendors is the sales tax.

thought so and there's no way im paying over retail. i assume this is intentional behaviour by rolex to increase the prestige etc?

I don’t get it. Rolex is not a boutique watchmaker and spends a billion dollars on marketing every year. But they restrict supply of their most popular (and affordable) models so much that they are basically impossible to purchase at retail, meaning customers turn to the grey market and get scalped for 50-100% of retail on top of the MSRP. That delta goes to the resellers, not to ADs.

I guess Rolex sees value in getting people to pay $26k to a third party for a steel Daytona that retails for $13k.

so is this a permanent thing or only been recently? i guess the risk is rolex decides to start pumping them out and the market price drops.

the grey market dealers have to buy a lot of datejusts and precious metal pieces in order to get the steel Daytonas
