Quote:Refer to Dino944's post above too re: relative availability at ADs. It seems to be tougher to obtain here in NYC, at least over the last two to three months. Depending on the AD you might not get as much of a discount either given what seems to be strong demand for the piece. I obtained mine, pre-owned, from an AD in NYC but it was an interesting case: after wearing the piece for a few days the previous owner returned it to the AD "because it stopped working." It probably got magnetized, so the AD sent it to Patek for full servicing and I got it 20% off retail, Patek-sealed and fresh. Not bad, right? But I think I got lucky. Patek is also controlling production of the Nautilus a bit more "stern"-ly (ha), at least since early 2012. Quote from Thierry Stern below: "The Nautilus is a very strong watch. 60 percent of the clients here are wearing one which is great, but it’s dangerous too. We don’t want to become a one watch brand, so I control the production. We could easily sell twice as many steel Nautiluses as we do. Now you can get them on the second hand market for more than the retail price because of this." http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/2012/1/12/interview-thierry-stern-president-of-patek-philippe.html If you don't like waiting (patience is not my strong suit), you can obtain a Nautilus from the grey market pretty easily, but I am not sure how much lower you can go versus 20% off MSRP of $26,700 especially for BNIB. Obviously, do your due diligence with grey market dealers and "buy the seller."
