Added two watches to wife and my collection. It's been quite a while since we both added a watch to our collection. I was initially looking at a tag connected 45. But decided not to.

Here's mine.... Wife's of course is a lot nicer.

Yeah, I really like the Pelagos LHD. Retail price is 4770 for both regular and LHD.

Without bargaining, was offered 4770 taxes in for regular Pelagos. LHD would be 4770 + tax (12% over here)
This was from an AD?

Always thought Rolex/Tudor AD would not move on price.
Did you purchase, and do you enjoy it? ( I looked at one on weekend, but not sold on the LHD)

For Tudor there is definitely bargaining room, even on their most popular models like the Black Bay or Pelagos.

Yes, this was from an AD. Bought the LHD last week :)
After some persistence, AD was able to offer it at retail price with taxes included

Tax in or about 15% off is the most you’ll get from an authorized AD. If they get caught discounting more than that, they will lose their license. To lose a Rolex license, you mind as well close up shop.

If anyone is looking for a DIY watch box, I found this sock organizer at Miniso for $3.99 which should work well.

Rolex discounts are a thing of the past, at least on the stainless sport models and any Basel releases. Rolex does not allow discounting PERIOD, no such thing as an acceptable discount by Rolex. The "shortage" with Rolexes is beyond stupid now, even DJ 41mm blue dials have wait lists now and sells for MSRP. Tudor on the other hand is no problem.

WOW - THE dealer in Ottawa won't move a penny.

Anyone aware of a dealer willing to negotiate in the Montreal area?

Chateau d'Ivoire in DT Montreal sold me my Black Bay for 15% off. No bickering.

PM me for teh salesguy's name. Call him up. Negotiate the price and come in and get it. It's worth the 2 hour drive.

Nice! Wanted to check out the new Omega Seamaster 300M but they won't have it until next month. It's been quite a while since I picked up a new watch. Was thinking of the Hermes Apple Watch 4. LOL

Naw, not vs lol. AW4 for sports and health tracking. The Seamaster because I decided not to splurge on a Rolex Deep Sea or IWC lol.

Yeah, gone are the days when they were $3-4K. Seems their strategy of jacking up the prices each year is working.

That's nuts. Don't buy a new Omega unless you plan to keep it forever or you get at least 30% off. Resale is shit on them except for the moon watch.
