    I got a sub recently. Paid used what they are new as I couldn’t be arsed waiting, I get bored easily

    SUB is such a great watch. I was after the deep sea, previous generation but a lot of dealers stay way clear due to the high influx of extremely good fakes/stolen watches

    Guy near me gets subs in regularly, all checked and with warranty

    Date or no date?

    The replica world is getting astoundingly good. My buddy has a BB58 that you cant tell the difference

    I had a replica Submariner once that was so good the authorized Rolex dealer I got my GMT wasn't able to tell. Of course I didn't tell them it was a replica. The cost was a bit more than what can be found at one of the many replica dealers as the bezel was original stock, the crown was also original stock. Once I got my GMT (back in 11/2011) I gave the replica to my brother (he still has it). I gave it to him with the condition of never selling it or it has to come back to me. I made a decision at that point not to support the replica market. This is one reason I would never buy a Rolex from the internet site where we buy most of our used golf equipment (and more). There are too many good fakes out there that have authentic swiss automatic movements, just not rolex movements.

    Note: I am in no way promoting or endorsing the replica market. I believe in purchasing a product from a reputable authorized dealer selling legitimate product, or from a seller that can 100% verify that the product is authentic. This pertains to watches, golf clubs, electronics, etc.

    And the thing is, I can get over a grand more than I paid last year as a trade in

    Mental the used market as you can’t get them new, or have to be on their preferred list

    My wife and I bought me an Omega AQ chrono 8500 for my 60th birthday 2 years ago. After realizing I don’t wear it enough to keep it wound, I went ahead and got the same watch but in quartz. Where do y’all think would be the best place to try to sell the chrono?

    Finished a mod and finally tracked down the NTH I wanted

    I wasn't familiar with NTH before, but those are beautiful. I've been waiting to find something sub-$1K that isn't a generic department store watch, and the price point of those ($600-750) is perfect. I'm not ready for my Omega yet, but there might be an NTH on my Christmas list this year (if my wife reads this... this one: https://nthwatches.com/collections/watches/products/amphion-commando).

    They are EASILY top value for the money in the sub $1k market.

    I have that one and the Devil Fox, its a fantastic Doxa like homage.

    Anyone got a hook up on Subs (or other) from ADs at MSRP?
