Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

I'm looking for a particular Rolex and would like to get it for under 12k.

I'm torn between random finds on the Internet and a local store.

It's a Datejust Pink Gold - 24 Dia Bezel - Oyster 178341 and looks like this:


Thanks for any suggestions!

Re: Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

I've never heard the words "Rolex" and "discount" used in the same sentence before...

...unless the word "fake" was also in there. Good luck.

Re: Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

Trust me, it seems I can get it for €8500 with 19% refund but it's bank transfer to Germany.

I don't have wet feet yet but.........

Re: Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

If you consider list price in Spain for a steel GMT II is Euro 6900.--, there is no way a steel & gold datejust with diamonds is Euro 8500.-- (both are list prices incl VAT)

At your risk.....

PS You'll get 10% in Spain easily, maybe a little more, but need to persevere !

Re: Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

It's a steel and gold Datejust with diamonds in the bezel. €8849 with German MwSt of 19% so imported value €7440. That's 9700 with Swiss tax.

Bucherer is offering to sell it to me for 12600.

I've reached out in Samnaun, good call!

Would you take the risk for 3000? That's a 25% saving.....

Best thing about Samnaun... if you lay the cash on the table, most will be willing to barter.

Plus it is a nice day trip

Re: Do you know of any Good Rolex discounts

a shop in Brent Cross shopping centre in N. London was raided this morning by 6 people on 3 motors bikes targetting Rolex and Cartier watches.

Thought would mention in case you get any odd PMs, to be wary.

yeah, they're clearing them by PMing EF members. That's always how you clear a London jewellery heist.

Take it into an authorised dealer and get it serviced. They shouldn't lose anything like that much time.

Never seen anyone but Americans buying Rolex watches. In pink gold, with diamonds? Seriously? Where is the fashion police?

I have watched Asians get off a bus, half file into a jewelery shop, the other half go take pictures. Those that went into the shop and paid cash, come out with high-end watches and a smile on their face.

You see it in real life and it's much more chocolaty than pink.

I'm assuming you tend to just window shop?
