    Default Longest Waiting List Watch Models

    What's the most powerful tool in the watches industry?

    The answer - Supply and Demand

    Let's compile a list of longest waiting list / hardest to get watches model:

    1. Rolex Daytona
    2. Rolex Batman
    3. Rolex Hulk
    4. AP Royal Oak Selfwinding 41mm blue dial
    5. .......

    This usually translates into higher resale value or in some cases to flip for a profit.

    Can share your observations and continue the list?

    Number 1 should be 5711 blue instead.

    I've to agree that it seems to be the Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 (SS model), to be the no. 1, whether it's in demand, price or resale value. Recently came across a two years' old, overseas set, selling at 49K at a grey dealer... this is taking into consideration the retail price is only $32,700.

    To my limited knowledge of watches, I would see it this way:

    1. Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1A-010 (SS) - RRP $32,700; resale up to $49K
    2. ROLEX Daytona 116500 (SS) - RRP $16,660; resale up to $26K
    3. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin 15202 (SS) - RRP around low $30K; resale about same price
    4. Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400 (SS/blue) - RRP $24,900; resale up to $30K
    5. Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167A-001 (SS/rubber) - RRP $25K; resale up to $31K
    6. ROLEX Daytona 116520 (SS/discon) - Last RRP $16,100; resale up to $25K
    7. ROLEX Submariner 16610LV (SS/discon/"kermit") - Last RRP around $9K; resale up to $15K
    8. ROLEX GMT-MasterII 16710 (SS/discon/"pepsi") - Last RRP around $7K; resale up to $14K
    9. ROLEX Submariner 116610LV (SS/green) - RRP $12,150; resale up to $16K
    10. ROLEX GMT-MasterII 116710BLNR (SS) - RRP $12,010; resale up to $14K
    11. ROLEX Sea-Dweller 126600 (SS/43mm) - RRP $15,250; resale up to $18K
    12. ROLEX Sea-Dweller 4000 116600 (SS/discon) - Last RRP $13,990; resale up to $16K
    13. ROLEX Submariner 116610LN (SS) - RRP $11,440; resale up to $13K
    14. ROLEX Sea-Dweller 16600 (SS/discon) - Last RRP around $8.8K; resale up to $10K
    15. ROLEX Submariner 14060M (SS/discon) - Last RRP around $8K+; resale about same price
    16. ROLEX Submariner 16610LN (SS/discon) - Last RRP around $8K+; resale up to $12K

    Some of the above figures are estimates, but quoted by some dealers over a period of about a year.

    Ya, maybe that too for now. Saw a dealer in Carousell selling about 3K above a white dial version at nearly $26K... and the retail price is only $19,340.

    Wow this is a very good list, thanks for compiling.

    Just saw someone listing a 2009 5711 blue at 61k in Carousell.

    Hmmm.....I don't believe in paying high premium for a watch~~

    All my watches are paid retails or below.
