Chuanwatch also has new daytona and hulk few days ago. Really really curious who is the AD chop on the warranty booklet. Any guesses? Local AD? Anyone got $25k to go find out? :-)

and those customers could be chuan VIP. and chuan hook them up with good prices on patek, ap or rm.

GX spent a considerable amount of time and effort to help me get a watch I ultimately wasn't able to because I was too slow. He did me a solid when he didn't have to, and I've never even met the guy.

Saw a grey dealer listing a bunch of brand new Datejust (below 8% recommended AD discount but above 15% VIP AD discount), 2-tone Daytona and sub, SDDB... and...
2 Daytona at 25.7k and 24.9k
1 Hulk at 15.8k
1 Batman at 14.5k

Also saw a few Daytona, hulks and batmans at different grey dealers in Orchard and Chinatown areas

January is the month when all the new allocation of popular come in to AD, but we are seeing them in grey dealers instead

At a premium of course

This is only in January, but If this trend continues, the retail buyers will suffer as most will be forced to pay premium to buy these popular pieces

So my recommendation stays - don't buy them at these prices, let the storm blows away slowly.
retail buyer suffer? if they are rich will they care? they agreed to the price and in most case happy of their purchase. if they unhappy the deal wouldn't be struck anyway.

it a win win from AD and grey and buyer.

Why don't you ask these "rich" people they prefer to pay 16k or 27k for a daytona?

I didn't realise being carrot is a win win.

The rich people that I know don't pay premium for anything one. They are more kiam kana than a poor folk like me

chiu are right about some undertable sell to grey dealer cos tiagong before always certain model come teh shop managers always take put in office and teh staff dunch even haf chance to see it in boutique then they sell to their regular "VIP" customer which in turn is teh grey dealer so called their "frens" if wan to put it in nicer way..to make it even more legit the grey may bundle buy wif other unpopular models for discount then can at least justify say "VIP" bought before other models but all games rah

onli way ish dunch pay premium to these grey and slowly AD and grey relationship cannot continue then let these grey seller ownself keep ownself stock up lor since some even got undated warranty card
It always takes two hands to clap, i can tell you surely someone is willing to pay the grey asking price. Thus the grey market will always prosper. Unless u wanna put announcement in newspaper and TV saying please dont buy from grey dealer? lolx

Just a kind reminder to the bros here, that the GST "increase" is coming soon ah... do remember to buy it asap. (Another reason to speed up the watch purchase)
