For Omegas, how much are you really saving? A grand? Keep looking--deals can be had on Omegas with full kit pretty easily. Too much risk as to provenance and whether it is genuine, but that's just my opinion.

Hell, I know an AD in Europe that'll get you an amazing price once you factor discount, exchange rate and VAT refund in.

so grey market seller do come with stamp these days? what's my best source for Omega

Alfred, FNFZ4 on the forums is the best I know of. He discounts 25-30% off msrp and no tax delivered overnight. It's not grey either, my speedy was shipped overnight directly from an AD in South Carolina, new with a stamped card dated that day.

I haven't bought from him but he's definitely well regarded.

Yea, he is a good dude, moves a lot of omega. I text him frequently. Always good to chat about watches.

Prestigetime and Jomashop sell BNIB Omegas for 20+ back on the reg and they are as reputable as it gets and Im pretty sure they offer returns.

neither offer stamp no?

I dont know, but I its not a big deal for me personally. They offer warranties on their own anyways I think.
post #44289 of 48312
You don't get an omega warranty card, they are gray dealers. The price difference between getting the 4yr omega warranty through Alfred vs Joma and their in house warranty was $100. I'll take the non grey all day for $100
post #44290 of 48312
Sounds reasonable enough.
post #44291 of 48312
And to be clear, if the deal was better, I'd have no hesitation to buy on Joma. They have a great track record.

@steel28 - congrats, Bats! Terrific watch

as for Grey market - personally if you do your research you can find AD's with near same pricing, and any minor cost is easily outweighed by peace of mind IMO. Not saying there aren't great grey markets out there with stamped cards and such..

Who loves the big ExII?

post #44294 of 48312
thank you for kind words Gents.

some better pictures of Batman








So far I'm very impressed.

It wears amazing, love the date complication and really missed it. The size is perfect and I missed a bit of heft vs my 116520. Little splash of color catches quiet a lot of attention and a bit distracting when driving (in a good way!).


quick PSA: Rolex is extending its warranty period from 2 to 5 years for all watches sold after July,1 2015.

All watches sold from July,1 2013 to June,30 2015 will get an extra one year warranty extension.


this has been confirmed for Europe

Glad to hear you are enjoying your BLNR, it looks great!  :cheers: Thank you for the information about Rolex extending their warranty period!  Its nice to see them moving forward and offering a more substantial warranty.  I look forward to hearing your ownership impressions of the BLNR once you've had a bit more time to get acquainted with it.
