I guess I'm the only one not wearing an AP RO around here today ? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Back in the early 80s you could walk into an AD and get 25% off a steel Sub or GMT and those were the "popular Rolexes" back then. And that was without any haggling. Daytonas and Explorer 2s were practically being given way in those days.
sad. soooo sad. i wish some of my family members wouldve known......
You think thats sad, quartz watches were such a big deal in the early 80s, that no one wanted "old" manual wind or automatic watches so you could buy vintage PP, AP, and VC chronographs, perpetual calendars, and even perpetual calendar chronographs all day long for $2,000-$3,000. For a reference point $2,500 was the MSRP on a new gold and steel Sub or GMT back then.
The prices are a bit brutal, but keep saving its worth it!
I feel the same way. If its a current production watch that I want, I prefer to wait and buy a new one.
Yepp, I almost bought a used one. But going fresh on my AP baby :D
You lucky man...
