Care to let me in on these sources? Also King Jewelers in where my fiancee's sister when to get a Submariner for her husband.
As to the Panerai comments, I have not seen them in person but love the style of some of them. When I look at their prices they are generally $10K+
a sub from kings?? either they just started selling them, or maybe it was a special order...when i was there, they said they had no plans of becoming a rolex AD. theres a few places...Barrys Pawn in the ghetto is actually a great place....and honestly at times has the best rolex selection. The guy chicago ron mentioned has decent prices as well, but i cant for the life of me remember his name. Theres also a place next to Corner Music on granny white that stocks a dozen of them. I THINK its called gossage jewelers. I may be wrong though. But these are all used....I personally have no problem buying used...i prefer to buy used over new.
