If you Want to Buy Rolex with Less 25%, Go Japan!




Japan is a new Rolex Purchase Preferred Country for its good price!
Rolex used to have a fixed price over all countries as that would maintain a balance of sales over all countries.
On the other hand, Abenomics is working on Yen depreciation, as of Today’s Yen-HKD exchange Rate 1 Yen= 0.06579!
Friend of mine went to buy his favourite GMT master II Black Blue 116710BLNR
Price in HK is $67,300 how about in Japan!? We, he bought it at Yen 768,000 that is HKD$50,526.72!

Ref 11710BLNR list Price Yen 870,000 with Tax or Yen 800,000 without 8% tax.
That is about less 24% of the list price in Hong Kong!? No One can provide that kind of Discount for you… and likely this is the Cheapest GMT II in the world!?
How about 116701 LN?  It is Yen 710,000 that is HK$46,711!
Suggested place is Takashimaya Nagoya and Hokkaido, According to Lau a HKWF’s friend, due to high demand in Tokyo it is hard to find.
But in other cities, it is available for most of the People like to go for except but still the Daytona Black 116520 and Deepsea D-Blue 116660.
So if you go to Japan, don't forget to go and take a look!
Takashiyama, Daimaru department store or …

Remarks
Takashimaya does 6.9% tax refund instead of 8% (with 1.1% processing fee), they do give 5% off for discount, to total you enjoy 11.9%!

Hi HK Snob,

Love your site. Lots of helpful info!

Can you tell me where your friend bought the 116710BLNR for JPY 768,000 ? Most sites in Japan have list price as JPY 860,000 (before taxes). I would like to go to same store for same deal. Thanks!

Apologies I was mistaken, the upper limit only applies to consumables, not General goods.

I'm in Japan now, sports models at ADs seem very difficult to find in stock.

I tried all the ADs in Fukuoka and Osaka and none would give any discount on the sports models as they were selling same day.

Finally I picked up a non date sub for ¥650,000.

I only flew here based on your suggestion and that sub even without discount is 30% cheaper than my home country! I also have price list booklet of all models if need any prices.

Thanks
