Rolex - Submariner & Daytona want to buy new...

Please help me if you can, need to take clients to buy Rolex watches. At lease one of each Submariner (in blue) & Daytona Cosmograph & possibly a ladies Submariner.

Any suggestion where I might get them as a 3 watch discounted deal?

I prefer to buy in either Lucerne, or Zurich region. Payment will be in cash.

Thanks in advance.

Watches must be new only btw...

Re: Rolex - Submariner & Daytona want to buy new...

Also note that you don't get a ladies submariner, the blue face submariner is white gold, not stainless and if you want the new Daytona, it's likely that there will be a waiting list. I would have also thought a discount unlikley. For the best selection, Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich will be your best bet.

Re: Rolex - Submariner & Daytona want to buy new...

If you want a stainless steel Daytona, you have 2 choices: go on a waiting list for likely several months and pay list price (CHF 11,900); buy one immediately for CHF 17,000+. There's plenty of choice on www.chrono24.com

As a general rule you will not get a discount on stainless steel Rolexes from an authorised dealer, unless you already have a good relationship with them. If you are only looking at precious metal variants, there may be some room for manoeuvre.

Tried these sellers (and another since) but they say they can't supply at such short notice. Resigned to the fact that this is not going to happen, only in Switzerland does one get turned down with nigh-on 30-40,000 CHF cash burning in pocket

Not true. Would happen globally. The simple fact is that supply of the Daytona is constrained. If you want one for 17k in Switzerland within a week, I could make that happen. Can't comment on the Sub, but there generally isn't a shortage of precious metal ones, which I believe is what you are looking for.

What do you expect? That's walking around money for the people who buy those watches, not exceptional-service money. If you want exceptional service , tell your clients to stop being so stingy.

A brand new Daytona? Forget it! There is a wainting list and will last months until you can buy it.

Your best bet is to buy from the Bucherer shop (Rolex boutique) at the duty free area of the airport. They will take 8% (ie, the MwSt) off from the official list price.

PS: there is not such thing as ladies Submariner
PS2: Do you know that the blue Sub is only in white gold, right?

So I know next to nothing about Rolex watches...I don't really give a monkeys to be honest, its the same to me as getting them a belly dancer or finding a 'photographer' ... anyway, you're right, I won't be bending over backwards about it.

It's not really stainless and not known as such but bi-colour or two tone; they are only really popular in the US, so this one you could easily find here.

If you really need them urgently, try Dubai or Israel, they will probably have them all in stock, but you'll pay premium prices
