I went to the Rolex store in Aria, Las Vegas and they had no SS Sport Watches. I recently came back from Bangkok, Thailand and one of their biggest malls had nothing. Went to a Chinese AD in San Gabriel and they had one Explorer and one Daytona in stock.

Damn, I haven't been in a Rolex AD in a couple years since I got my Submariner 14060m some years back. Just out of curiosity I'll have to pop in my nearest one and see what they have and don't have.

2007 Z4M Coupe  [0.00]
visited 3 of the main stores midtown Manhattan about 2 months ago and they didn't have any. One wouldn't even take my name down, another acted all weird and finally the 3rd one put my name down (this is Wempe on 53rd and 5th). About 2-3 weeks later, they called me to come leave a deposit and about 2 weeks after, they had my watch. This is for the Sub 116610LN

I've changed up what I wanted to get due to the pricing of the used double reds.

I traded in my red 1680 (prices have softened a bit) and will have a black face Daytona this month.

I've known my AD for over 10 years now and this will be my fifth new Rolex from him. He said that they had just finished the update that Rolex requested for their showroom and they're going to have to reconfigure the display cases to have less watches on display. Everything in the display is either two-tone, gold or platinum.

I was able to pick this up about a month ago.
Like I've said, I have a very good relationship with my AD that's been built over a long time, plus other purchases that are at least the equivalent of what my five Rolex purchases are.

increasing the price wouldnt do anything other than piss off their customers.

the secondary market would correct for the msrp price increase.

I do agree they need to get rid of this artificial shortage and just push the watches out to the masses, but this is what they want. They want watches that not everyone has.

I'm sure they do but they also don't want the crazy grey market.
It's like Porsche and the 911 GT3/RS. Porsche hates the mark-up, but doesn't build enough cars to come anywhere close to what the demand is.

Thanks for all the updates on what the market is on these watches. It's crazy!

Rolex doesnt want any grey market, which is why they are cracking down on ADs that sell to grey market dealers and flippers.

I see, but why would an AD sell to a grey market dealer when they have a long list of buyers? They must be buying above MSRP?

A couple reasons that ive seen.

The flipper/GM dealer will buy several of the none moving watches as well as the sought after models.

the AD or just the sales guy gets a kickback of profits

They will pay a premium to get the watch. ADs cant sell for over MSRP and its the quickest way to get their AD status pulled. However, you will see some selling accessories or other small items for a high cost. So you get the Sub C for 8750 (or whatever MSRP is now) and then a set of $5 earrings for $500.

Also, some ADs wont take waiting list names. So when they get one in, its first repeat customer that comes in gets it. The flippers buy enough to develop a good relationship with the AD and can get that preferential treatment.

Anyone having a hard time finding a SS Rolex you might want to try the Rolex Forum. Ive been a member there for about 9 years when I started shopping for my Submariner and they have reputable sellers who move a lot of pieces of used and new Rolexes.

https://www.rolexforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9
https://www.watchrecon.com/ even better. it searches across all the forum and marketplaces.

finding SS Sport Models isnt the issue. You can find a handful of each model for sale at any given time online. Finding them at MSRP is the issue.

www.watchrecon.com is my go-to website for watch searches.

TRF has pricing that is similar to most other forums. Remember, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay, plus, you have to "buy the seller" so reputation and references are critical.

A few months ago, I was selling a BNIB white dial Daytona, when dealers on TRF had advertised similar watches for $21K. I undercut them and advertised for $19,500. I didn't get a single bite. I ended up selling it to a dealer in London for $17,500.

Plenty of stock available. Either you are not an important client or doesn't know where to look.

Vintage GMTs are plentiful too but at premium prices I don't understand. Tons of those out there.

Not everyone gets to be important to an AD.
.
My buddy gets watches from an AD for 5-6 guys. I've bought 3 Panerai's and a 43mm Sea Dweller, and he got 4-5 GMT/Sub's for his other friends and he bought a Patek himself from the AD, and he still can't get a SS Daytona a year later... or a Batman for me.
