Looks great!  The BLNR could get me back into purchasing another Rolex.  Its been several years since I purchased one.

My last 2 Rolex watch purchases were both made in 2005. For several years after those purchases there weren't any new Rolex watches that were of interest to me. So the BLNR could bring me back to Rolex.  :D

The watch buckle is damaged. The case is scratched up.

I have to call them in the morning to sort this out.

Any updates?

Here's a related question for you guys:  do most ADs happily go along with requests for never touched watches?  I know some shops are very careful with their watches and basically don't allow potential customers to try pieces on to ensure that watches stay in great shape.  However, the much more common shop seems to let anyone try their watches on, and seem to unload these pieces at no additional discount.  It seems unrealistic to expect stores to keep their watches hermetically sealed and only to sell untouched pieces.  If you want a perfect piece, do you typically expect a smaller discount?

Most ADs will have only one of each model for all but the most popular watches. That is, if you want an untouched copy, one will have to be ordered, so be prepared to wait. Since the AD  doesn't want to be stuck with an extra watch, it's likely you'll be asked for a deposit. If you make it clear that it's straight from the factory or nothing, most ADs will play along. You can always negotiate the price before asking for a fresh watch, but generally there are smaller discounts if the AD has to order one for you (which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me since they're not paying the interest on sitting inventory, but I also don't think it's completely unfair).
