Am also trying to convince the wife that this is an excellent time to purchase a Swiss watch (notwithstanding I'm supposed to stop purchases to save up for my grail), though the selling is a tough uphill struggle considering she just purchased one for me at Christmas. Nevertheless I managed to find my way into a local Rolex dealer to check out the oyster perpetual dial colors (I like blue) when this caught my eye.

This issue has been deemed serious enough and relevant locally to appear on the second page of the local broadsheet. Sjx was also given a shoutout.Looks like prices are set to rise 10-15% in the next couple of months - dealers say once current stocks are depleted new ones will probably have their prices hiked.
