  1. An Absolutely stunning piece.... and even better all Monies raised in the "Only One" Auctions go to a wonderful cause being the Muscular Dystrophy Research foundation..
  2. Makes interesting reading.. https://www.superbike.co.uk/article/norton-was-it-a-fraud-from-the-start Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Surely you wouldn't want to miss out on the whole "Rolex AD Experience".. All the machine coffee you can drink and the dodgy flute of cheap Prosecco... Plus the feeling that they have done you a massive favour for even considering you a suitable candidate and allowing you to purchase one of their cherished pieces... It truly is a humbling experience.... Ps.. I remember when I first tasted the experience some 35 years ago my then wife to be was presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers...
  4. Its a piece that is causing some confusion amongst the people ..it is available at RRP some AD's will tell you its a wait list piece and some have it in their window..similar story to the BB58 And Well know Grey market Dealers are taking the proverbial trying to take advantage of said confusion at £1000 over RRP.in the UK I have seen this piece priced at over £5k.... I think its a great piece different from the norm and stays true to the Original which remains very much sought after Apologies to all if I offended anyone with my salute ..but please do not confuse me with someone who cares what others think of watches that I like...
  5. If I was buying for myself as a keeper between the two.... I would be looking for the best Preowned Aqua Terra I could find... I am not going to play silly games and get caught up in anyone's hype for a bloody Oyster perpetual...people have lost their minds waiting or paying over RRP for these very ordinary pieces... The Oyster Perpetual along with the Datejust up until the recent madness was a heavily discounted piece even from your AD There are bargains out there to be found.. I picked up a new unworn 116000..Blue 369 dial..2018 £2800 from a private seller locally. He advertised it himself because his local dealer offered him £2500 for a brand new watch with full stickers in place and all documentation including the original purchase receipt.
  6. Really like it and to those who don't...
  7. To be honest the Bracelets on the Rolex 4 or 5 digit S/S ref numbers are pretty crap to what was available at the time from say Omega.. These days so may companies clearly spend more money on the presentation box than the strap or bracelet of their products.. if you want to see a great quality bracelet take a look at the Glashutte SeaQ
  8. Does it get any better Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for that ... I think I was getting the OP picture confused with the Boutique edition that has a vertical brushed ceramic dial on a Bracelet.. I believe the version priced at around £1200 is a solid green dial.... im sure I read somewhere that the Boutique Edition was around 2000 Euro. But I stand to be corrected said the man in the orthopaedic surgery...
  10. Was reading somewhere it comes in 2 sizes 41mm and 43mm... is the £1200 price for the rubber strap I thought it was over £2k on the bracelet Be interesting to see one in the flesh to see what the Dial looks like in real life Not sure there will be many discounts around being such a new piece but always try regardless.. Not a fan of the tiny date IMO just needs to be a Gnats **** larger..
  11. Narrow your search to what you think you want. Just choose a reputable independent dealer there are hundreds to choose from in the UK.. Stay away from the social media forums with their tempting bargains unless you are 110% certain of what you are buying it’s a scammers paradise.. You will find the Oyster Perpetual at your Rolex AD New or Pre owned and I believe there is still one on the sales forum here.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just a follow up to my previous comment.. Before you purchase the watch be sure to ask the seller if the piece is in stock.. Many sellers on Chrono24 are agents... they just have pictures of many watches..... you place your order than they try and source the watch from their contacts wherever in the World which could take them many many weeks. So as @Nigelp suggested it may be worth calling a UK based company and enquiring about the watch in question. With Chrono24 your payment is held in an Escrow account until the watch is delivered... I have used Chrono24 several times and been happy overall.. but the One time I did need help from Chrono24 customer service it was Non existent and had to get my Credit card company to resolve the issue.
