Probably explains why Govberg got a lot of their AD statuses pulled once they started pimping the **** out of their Watchbox inventory.

That's the one of my big problems with Govberg...I don't mind building up a purchase history to get a high demand piece, but they dont have ANY brands that really interest me aside from Rolex and Patek

They used to have AD status for quite a few brands with a bunch of Richemont trash, Swatch garbage, independent brands, Rolex, and Patek. Now they barely have ****.

Probably indicates that the secondary market was much more profitable for them?

BTW, Macron putting his hands everywhere as usual, Biden should watch his Rolex…

I like these.

That's a big problem with a lot of Rolex ADs. They want you to buy a lot of other merchandise before they will sell you what you want, but most of the other products they carry aren't of any interest. If you are interested in buying a Rolex or Patek, why do they think you'd be interested in buying some Shinola watches or jewelry you can get at an average mall jeweler? Want me to buy other stuff, carry some really good brands!

yea, the other AD in my area is the one that I've put most of my hopes into...they carry nice jewelry plus JLC, IWC, Cartier, Tudor, etc

Rolex disagrees with you. How else would you know that you have a:
Rolex
Oyster Perpetual
Superlative Chronometer
Officially Certified
Cosmograph

Daytona

How about

ORIGINAL GAS ESCAPE VALVE
ROLEX
OYSTER PERPETUAL
DEEPSEA CHALLENGE
SEA-DWELLER
36090ft = 11000m
SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER
OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED
SWISS MADE
RING LOCK SYSTEM

-- Pricing is not very attractive...

Chrono24 average for the 116710LN is about $18K US so a couple thousand dollar premium to buy at an AD. Not as bad as I thought. At first glance I thought 16700EU was crazy but it's not outrageous.

Note, just one model that caught my eye because I have one. I didn't check the others.

This Rolex CPO thing is going to lead to some interesting conversations :

Customer- Hi, I’d like to buy a black dialed Daytona!

Dealer- Sorry, we won’t get a new one for another year and there are 20 people in line ahead of you. But you’re in luck, we just got a CPO model in and it’s only $30k..

Customer-:oops:
I believe you call it a CPO-NIB special.

Maybe someone already mentioned this, but the new Rolex CPO allows buyers to form an AD “relationship” within the brand from the get go - perhaps eliminating the pressure to buy other brands in the store? ADs might not like where this leads, of course…
