When I was kicking tires in an AD not long ago I asked about sales figures of various models. He said Subs and Daytonas sell strongest and the new BLNR has created a GMT sensation. Can't keep those in stock. But the Cellinis aren't selling well. He said people generally look to Rolex for the tool watches. I feel the same.

Send it to Jomashop for the gray market warranty service Pay Omega the $710 for an overhaul     Decisions decisions. Does anyone have experience with Jomashop's service department?
Hmmm. Where can I find a good deal on a gently pre-owned Shogun...
I like that Tag
