I am on the lookout for a Batgirl or Pepsi w Jubilee... I think I've given up on my Daytona dreams lol... at least with the GMT, I could sell my Sub for 4k over what I bought it and end up w a rarer watch and some $$ in my pocket.

For anyone that doesn't know, there was a price increase just about a week ago... Sub date is now $10.1K lol, bought mine in Dec 2018 for $8500... thought i got ripped off...

Has anyone had any luck buying a datejust from an AD lately? Not sure how hard they are to get compared to a Daytona or Sub.

I had asked a grey dial stainless steel Oyster band and I was told that I had to wait minimum 10 months which sounded outrageous to me
Same thing for the two tone champagne dial oyster band and probably the blue dial models

we got ours in 2021, but I believe the timelines are still relevant surrounding the issues circumventing supply and demand. truth be told, it's been like this for several years according to my AD; the pandemic just made it worse.

Datejust 31mm in oystersteel
Datejust 41mm in oystersteel (Wimbledon)

Jan 14 - inquired (ordered, no deposit)
Apr 20 - received 31mm
Sep 17 - received 41mm

so the 10-month wait isn't out of the ordinary. wait times will differ between models, and even within the same model, certain configurations may take longer than others. my AD has a client who requested in Nov 2019 (forgot the model), and he just received it Nov 2021.

I still have the first Rolex I got in 1995. The past few years I've sold a few others but I should have waited. The Daytona I had is now worth crazy money. Oh well.

Daytona demand and availability is strange. I bought 2 stainless silver ones in Houston in 2015. One was available in stock, the other shipped in within a month. Have been on the list for the refreshed model for over 2 years.

Threw my name in the hat for an Air King if one ever shows up at my AD. No obligation to buy since I've never actually seen one in person, but nice to have the option.

I have a great Daytona (first pic) but would LOVE to get my hands on one with a meteor face like those in the picture. I've had a request in for over a year.

Just received this Wimbledon dial DJ36 for my dad before Christmas
Had expressed interest in August or so

This is at Geary's, an AD in Los Angeles area
I have purchase history there that started in July of 2021
purchased 4 Rolex watches since then

In all my years in watches around the two biggest City's closest to me I have only ever seen one brand new black dial for sale in an AD window.
