they have mid range, high range and super high range.

a GS with spring drive or hi-beat is easily retailing ard 8-9k at boutique. max 10% discount for non LE GS.

cheaper GS will be the quartz also need 3k+ minimum.

GS is not the normal seiko, the build quality and the polishing is not every watch makers can achieve.
find GS very nice after touching it.

I will get 1 eventually

I assume you have no previous history with any ADs?

If so, the best bet for you is to go to all the ADs to put your name down. A sub (no date) is easier to get, and I don't expect you having to wait for more than six months.

I had post on this thread sometime back about wanting to buy my first rolex. Recently chance upon a pre-owned half gold DJ and bought it. Loving it but very sayang/flashy for daily use.

Recently have a paradigm shift in mentality and steering clear of sports model, so year end likely got spare cash and thinking of getting a 39mm 114300 from AD for daily use. Though I know it is next to impossible to walk in and out with a sports model, even a "basic" Explorer I, is it possible to just walk in and purchase something as basic as a 39mm OP?

Zero exp with AD here, paiseh for noob qns.

Since you got $$ , just go in the shop to ask for it.

Why worry so much ? You keep saying hesay no stock this no stock there.

Maybe you get lucky that day ?

Buy it and put your name for sub date or no date. High chance
If your agent has Buddha heart will keep one for you

Buy that and sell your OP or flip the sub for few k profit

If you want to skip the trouble or uncertainty, just buy grey preowned or brand new

Wah. Yes, I totally dont have any purchase history with ADs. I put my name in THG by email to them. and not sure their interest list is apply to individuals outlet or as a whole of THG.

I even tried asking at knightsbridge the hour glass outlet today. One of the sales lady scan me from head to top. I feel wth.
Also visited corina watch at paragon, sales lady again. She told me their list very long need to wait 2-3yrs for black sub.

ur chance is almost close to 0...if u manage to get 1, go pray.
the waiting i guess is plain wayang...
my frien THG ViP...spend probaby close to about 200-300k overall on all brands only manage got get a sub no date after 1yr for another frien.

i got my sub date after couple weeks after i gotten DJ and with history of IwC and oTher rolex models...and i know personally know the sales person.

he told me...nowdays rolex shipment in...ADs dunno what is coming and even if comes also dunno wat is the allocation.

this time round, heard abt only 5 sub came in for the entire SG...
imagine the sheer nos of ADs...ThG only allocated 2...and the nos of branches THG has? my outlet gotten 1. and the nos of salesman wanting? my sales fight limbs for me...hahaha...

so...i guess, if u dun hv previous historical record, i guess if u really wan it, probably u got to get from resales market and pay higher premium.

if u manage to get at retail price with no background...happier than strike 4D.
and my sales say...Sub already so jia lat...Daytona, dun even dream...hahahaa...
got $ also canno guarantee hv...even DJ are losing ground coz many cun get sport, tends to get DJ 1st...

Good Luck...

i would always recommend bringing watch Friends with heavy hitters watch when visiting ADs. Theirs eyes only scan your watch when you enter. At least a daytona, ap or full gold watch before you are taken seriously.

200-300k is not a VIP. Actually what I think constitutes a VIP is not only the absolute amount but the discount you ask from the AD. If you ask for huge discounts then your 'hot models' will come slower.


I asked RWS AD before (Gassan), the sales told me straight in the face 70k spend w/o discount for a Daytona (2018)

I went to THG on dec 2017.
Went in to check if they have batman.
Was told only have GMT master ii Black and half gold.
Am considering when another lady came in to ask for the black.
I told the sales guy if she is not buying i will get it.
TBH till today i did not regret that decision.
