6.25".

But my wrist is quite flat. As long as your span is above 50mm I'm sure it will look fine.

Pulled trigger on my dream watch, it's so fascinating to look at in real life. No regret in dropping a premium on it.

There is no "waitlist". The only list is "interest list".

This model gets shipped quite regularly, but you may need purchase history (preferably the less popular models) to get one from AD. Then again maybe not, this is not the most popular sport model.
Was told some ADs require purchase history with quantum....$100k
Means buy up $100k in other brands then get allocated one Rolex sports model at RRP anyone can confirm?

If you can afford that amount of purchase history, you can afford the grey premiums of many desirable pieces. Donít waste time and money with the purchase history then. Donít tell others this secret.

I doubt you need to spend 100k to get the polar. The type of watches you spend on is also factored in by the AD. For instance, buying 50k of 2-tone DJ/Cellini/IWC/JLC (slower moving types) is very different from buying 50k of a combination of popular (Rolex sports) and slow moving watches.

And I understand different AD have different approaches to how they allocate these popular watches. Also, there are different customer mix in each store - some stores may have a lot of VIP which make it difficult for an above average spender to get his watch.
