I like having watches that are more discrete (I almost never wear on bracelet even, almost all natos) and people don't even realize they might be expensive unless they're into watches themselves

    The supply isn't that limited. It's just that the demand went way up. The Kermit and hulk used to sit on shelves and could be had below msrp until a few years ago. The only one that's ever been very limited is the Daytona. It'll equalize at some point.

    Anyways, what you stated is one of the reasons I like JLC. They make their own movements (and ones for lots of other brands as well) but unless you know watches they will fly under the radar.

          It's interesting seeing this in that thread:

          'Just keep in mind Rolex is making A LOT of watches per year and have been for a very long time. So the word 'rare' is very relative.'

          Like I said, the supply has always been there. It's just that the demand has gone crazy the last few years. Although if you notice you see a lot more AP Royal Oaks and Pateks on celebrities now. People always want something bigger and more exclusive. The upper class are now going after even more higher end watches now while the middle class is eating up all Rolex supply.

              If you’re looking to get a Sub I’d just go through an AD instead of grey market, yeah you have to wait a few months but you’re not paying a markup / supporting resellers. Also even prior to the current SS craze the discount on a sub wasn’t more than 10% so it’s not like you’re all of a sudden paying 2x as much if you’re going retail.

                Thanks for the advice but I want the 16610, feel the lugs are too big on the new one, even though the ceramic bezel is nice. It just seems a little too big and in your face, I really just want the sub as a tool watch

                      I personally think a few months’ wait isn’t a big deal. It’s an option if you don’t want to pay above retail for an older sub.

                        Got an Erika’s MN Original strap for my GS. Unfortunately this (olive and yellow stripe) is the only color she has in 18/19mm and the yellow is a little clashy with the orange of the watch, so I had her add some orange accents to the strap to make it look more intentional. Kind of 70s-ish.

                            Is it just me or does tapatalk not allow us to choose the size of the file anymore (small, medium, large)?
