    I'm not surprised. It's been a while since ROLEX had a price increase anyway. Furthermore, as at present, most people are already paying retail price for some of their watches.

        ... you are one 'specimen' who has proven ROLEX (or the ADs) right about us, consumers. That is, consumers are now no longer seeking out discounts for luxury watches. Rather, most of us have been 'converted' to accept whatever price a watch is being sold by the retailers. Last time, people cursed at price increases; now, people cursed at lack of stocks. They seemed quite successful in 'molding' consumers' mindsets

        Actually in itself, by way of getting rid of discounts, is already a form of price increase. But well, some people are already willing to pay premium for certain popular models so.....

          The world has indeed changed. Customers now must prove "worthy" to ADs to get a SS Rolex which I think is ridiculous.

            Haha.. I'm not "Specimen". Is just that the pre owned market now making Ss sport prices hit the roof and our AD having no interest to sell to normal walk in Like ME. Sad

                "Worthy" by buying more non popular model from them to help them have more sell.. End up ask you to wait for SS stock to be in and they sell to their prefer customers.. I believe All our AD have the stock we are all looking for is just that they are holding for their prefer customers.

                  What can I say bro ... you are absolutely right! It's RIDICULOUS .....

                  What is even more ridiculous is, if any customer(s) is found to have 'flip'/trade any popular sports model by the AD, the customer will be 'marked' (or something like that) ... I wonder if the ADs ever think how, part of their profit, comes from customers who keep buying their watches year-in-year-out. The watch hobby is not just about buying watches only.

                  These recent developments are making both watch consumers and the sales staff very stressful

                    To be fair, it is not just the ADs doing this. Even the boutiques like AP and PP are doing the same. When I approached both the boutiques some time ago, to ask for the stainless steel models such as the Aquanaut, Nautilus (for PP) and the Royal Oak models (for AP), the response was similarly 'no stock'. Both also expressed no interest to accept my request for their 'wait list', and the 'indirect response' I got from them was "you can forget about buying those watch models from them this lifetime" ...

                        You're not totally wrong. But it's not that they 'lose jobs'; they quit! Because there's not enough watch for most of them to sell anymore.
