    If the situation doesn’t improve over the next 3 months, expect things to be easier. Can’t say you’ll walk into a store and have 6 steel Daytonas or 3 Nautilus watches on display, but you ain’t waiting 8 years either.

    Well, the Asian market has been gobbling up supply for quite some time now. Many of that supply is now being diverted to other markets, primarily the US market. So I would say yes. I already received my SS blue Sky Dweller and 43mm Sea Dweller. I hoping for my Panda Daytona!

    Rolex repair centers have closed (they are holding my Big Block panda hostage), is the factory even open? New supply may be limited.

    Yes, they have closed but with the world economy in this state , flippers might not be able to sell . I have seen prices soften .

    There's no magic potion to this. You just have to sign up with your local AD and buy yourself up with some not as desirable pieces and they'll throw some good ones your way, as well. During this crisis they might be more lenient but there's plenty others waiting.

    I have a customer who received a few of the desired pieces just in the last month, that doesn't mean if I was to call those ADs I'd get anything.

    Hey Mate,
    I believe you Sir , but there is always hope. We have seen so many margin calls and maybe , just maybe we can secure one .
    I was just recently offered a white gold Daytona in HK airport which I passed as I wanted only the panda.
