Updated Major Rolex Watch List Price and Discount at Rolex Authorized Dealer (AD) Hong Kong June 2013



Please Refer to the latest update on Rolex Prices 28 Sep 2014, Click below Link.






All Major Rolex Watch Model List Price, and Discount at Rolex Authorized Dealer (AD) Hong Kong 2013

Rolex has adjusted the price 4 times in 2011, and 5 times for Tudor. It has been no price adjustment for Rolex and Tudor since Nov 2011!

Still there is no news on new price adjustment in 2013 as of this moment!

Rolex currently produces around a dozen different Oyster Perpetual models. Rolex also has their dress line, Orchid 50-60 and later Cellini. They are not the major model people is looking for.

For ladies they make the 23mm Oyster-Perpetual, 26mm Date & Datejust, and 29mm Yacht-Master. In mid-size, you can get the 31mm Datejust or 35mm Yacht-Master (the only sport model offered in a case smaller than 40mm).

Lastly there are the gents: 34mm Date & Air-King; 36mm Datejust, Explorer & President; and the 40mm Daytona, Explorer II, GMT-Master-II, DeepSea replaced the phased out SeaDweller, Submariner, and latest 44mm Stainless Steel Yacht-Master II with a sky high price of $145,300 less 5% discount. The new one like Explorer II, Sky-Dweller is made of a larger size of 42mm. The newer enlarged Date Just II and Day Date II is not seen to be accepted by most of the customers, still the 36mm Size is the main stream.

Some models like the gents Datejust currently have about 10 model numbers in production... The numbers help differentiate the different metals and bezels used. Dial colors are not included, so that leaves one with dozens of new Datejust choices... The DeepSea in comparison is offered only in steel, only with a black dial, and only as Ref. 116600.


Air-King
The Air-King could be considered the "entry level" model from Rolex. It is 34mm in diameter and comes with an Oyster bracelet by default. The Air-King does not have a Date. In the 1970s, the Air-King was offered with a date and in gold & steel combinations which was rare! Those two variations likely ceased production since they are redundant next to the Date and Oyster Perpetual models.

Current models retail for Air King Ref 114200 $46,600 with the smooth bezel fitted,

Air King with the engine turned white gold fluted bezel Ref 114234 $60,500.


Oyster Perpetual

Date: The Rolex Date is 34mm like the Air-King, but it obviously includes a date function. Its production began in the late 1950s, around the time the steel Datejust was introduced. Retails range from HKD$45,000 with a smooth bezel and Oyster bracelet to HKD$60,500 with an 18K white gold fluted bezel and diamond markers. The date model was once offered in 3 flavors: steel, 18k yellow & steel, and all 18k yellow gold. It is now only available in steel.

Ref 115200 stainless steel, 34mm Smooth stainless steel Bezel date Oyster Strap $47,500

Ref 115234 stainless steel, 34mm, White Gold Fluted Bezel Date Oyster Strap No Diamond $55,500

Ref 115234 Stainless steel, 34mm White Gold Fluted Bezel Date Oyster Strap Diamond dial $62,100

Datejust

The Datejust is the best selling Rolex model in the market, 60% of Rolex model is Datejust and has been for decades. It was first introduced in 1945. The gents model is 36mm in diameter and typically came on a Jubilee bracelet. Rolex seems to have changed their tradition on this and is sending more Datejust models out the door with the Oyster band. Models with smooth bezels are available, but less common. Most have the fluted bezel, which is 18k white gold on the steel model. Most of the Chinese big spenders buy Two Tone Rolex Date Just 36mm with
Diamond Dial as the most frequent buy.


The Datejust was only available in gold until 1957 (conveniently a year after the release of the Day-Date which still has never seen a steel model). The steel Datejust was introduced and became an instant success. Rolex soon saw the steel variations selling much quicker than their gold models. Rolex countered this in 1962 when they introduced the gold and steel version…
Ref 116200 Date Just stainless steel watch, 36mm, Smooth Stainless steel smooth Bezel with Oyster Strap $49,000

Ref 116234 Date Just stainless steel watch, 36mm, White Gold Fluted Bezel with Oyster Strap $58,800

Ref 116234 Date Just stainless steel watch, 36mm, White Gold Fluted Bezel Smooth with Diamond Dial with Jubilee Strap $72,700


Ladies Date/Datejust
These two models use the same 26mm case mold and offer the exact same functionality. Rolex discontinued the ladies Date, there was so much overlap in the models that it seemed long overdue.

Ref 176200 Oyster perpetual Lady 26mm stainless steel, No Date, Smooth Stainless steel bezel with Oyster Strap $49,000

Ref 179160 Oyster perpetual Lady Date Just, 26mm stainless steel, with Date, smooth bezel with Oyster Strap $45,800

Ref 179160 Oyster perpetual Lady Date Just, 26mm stainless steel, with Date, smooth bezel with Jubilee Strap $46,600

Ref 179174 Oyster perpetual Lady Date Just, 26mm stainless steel, with Date, MOP, White gold Fluted Bezel with Oyster Strap $63,700

Ref 179174 Oyster perpetual Lady Date Just, 26mm stainless steel, with Date, diamond MOP dial, White gold Fluted Bezel with Jubilee Strap $84,100

Ref 178271 Oyster Perpetual Lady Date Just, 31mm Mid Size Two Tone Rose Gold, With Rose gold Fluted Bezel, MOP with Diamond with Jubilee Strap $107,800


Milgauss

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss was introduced in 1956 with model number 6451. The Milgauss was designed as an antimagnetic watch specifically for those who worked in power plants, medical facilities and research labs where electromagnetic fields can cause havoc with the timing of a watch. The current model Milgauss is equipped with amagnetic alloy (Parachrom-Blu) hairspring and movement encased by a Faraday cage. The name Milgauss is derived from the Latin mille, which means one-thousand, and gauss, the unit of a magnetic field. l is so named because it can withstand a magnetic flux density of 1,000 gauss.

In 2007, Rolex brought the Milgauss back after nearly two decades as the model number Ref 116400. There are currently three versions: white dial or black dial with a standard colorless sapphire crystal, and the GV (Glace Verte) or "Anniversary" model, with black dial of a slightly different design and a green-tinted sapphire crystal. The GV is the only Rolex produced with a tinted crystal. Although initially rumored to be a limited edition, the GV version is still produced nearly 3 years later after 2010.

Due to its internal Faraday cage, the Milgauss is thicker than the Submariner, but the same width and weighs 157 grams. The Milgauss is only available in 904L polished stainless steel, an alloy that is extremely resistant to scratches and corrosion. Aside from its resistance to magnetic fields, the Milgauss' most unusual feature is its orange lightning-bolt second hand, a unique feature in the Rolex lineup that was originally introduced with the 6541 Milgauss model.

Ref 116400 Milgauss White Dial or Black dial $55,500

Ref 116400 GV Milgauss Green Glass $59,600

Explorer I

It was introduced in 1954, and has had one look through-out its life; a black dial with Arabic numbers at 3', 6' and 9', no date, smooth bezel, Oyster bracelet, and a stainless steel 36mm case. Except for the updates that all Rolex watches have received, it remained essentially the same watch.  Explorer I Ref 214270 39mm stainless steel with Oyster Strap $48,200


Explorer II

This model was introduced in the early 70's and was never widely distributed or popular until 1991. The original model was produced until the current model was released in 1985. The Explorer II uses the same movement as the GMT-II models and makes use of a secondary 24-hour hand that rotates once every day. The engraved steel bezel is stationary and was originally designed for speleologists (cave explorers) who can have a hard time determining if it is am or pm.

Today’s new Explorer II Ref 216570 was launched in Nov 2011, new caliber of high accuracy, 42mm stainless steel, it come with Black with Orange Floating Pointing $60,500, White Dial same price.


Submariner

The Submariner was introduced by Rolex in 1954. The watch comes only on an Oyster bracelet and has a 40mm case. The steel model is only available with a black dial, and is one of the most recognizable Rolexes. Anniversary editions with green bezels can occasionally be found.

The Submariner has the common single direction rotating diving bezel with minute markers for the first 15 minutes. The original models until 1958 are often considered "James Bond" models and have some easily recognizable difference. Primarily, they had a smaller crown, no crown guard, and the bezel only had minute markers every 5 minutes. In the late 70s the model 16800 was introduced. It sported the new sapphire crystal and quick-set function. In 1989, the 16610 was introduced with an improved movement and a more secure bezel, that is the most advanced and yet beautiful Submariner so far claimed by most of Submariner Collectors.

In 2010, the 116610 was introduced with a ceramic (Cerachrom) bezel and improved “Glidelock” buckle.

Ref 114060 Submariner Black dial,no Date 40mm, stainless steel watch with matching Oyster Strap $58,000

Ref 116610LN Submariner black Dial, 40mm, stainless steel watch with matching Oyster Strap $62,100

Ref 16610LV Submariner Green bezel Black Dial, 50th Anniversary model, discontinued in 2010.

Ref 116610LV Submariner green dial and green Bezel, 40mm, stainless steel watch with matching Oyster Strap $66,100 (Due to its limited supply, there is no discount for this model)

Ref 116613LN Submariner Two Tone with Yellow gold and Stainless steel, 40mm Black Dial, $94,700

Ref 116619LB Submariner Solid White gold, 40 mm with Blue Dial and Blue Bezel with matching gold strap $263,600


DeepSea

Sea Dweller: The Sea Dweller was introduced in 1971 and discontinued in 2008. It is virtually the same watch as the Submariner. The only real differences are the thicker and heavier steel case, thicker crystal with no cyclops eye, and the helium escape valve useful only to deep divers. The original model was rated for 2000 feet and called the "Rolex Submariner 2000 Sea Dweller". It lost the "Submariner 2000" part of the title in 1973. The previous issue, model 16600, is rated to 4000 feet and is sold only in steel. The Sea-Dweller DEEPSEA, model 116660, has replaced the Sea-Dweller model 16600 and retails for HKD$82,500. The DEEPSEA model offers a greater depth rating (to 12,800 feet) along with a thicker, larger case and an improved "Glidelock" buckle


GMT-Master II
The 1950s were an exciting decade for Rolex and included the introduction of the classic GMT- Master. It was one of the first watches to utilize a second hour hand to indicate a second time zone. With the simple rotating 24 hour bezel, one could fairly easily tell the time in any time zone. The late 70s saw the introduction of the GMT-Master II which was basically the same, except now the user could easily adjust the 2nd hour hand with the crown in position 2. The steel models are only offered with black dials. The bezels are available in all black, red/ black, or red / blue. GMT's typically come with a Jubilee bracelet installed.

The original GMT-Master (16700) was phased out in the late 90s. The latest serial number Bernard's had for the 16700 was a U#, putting its birthday around 1997. With the flood of new models with a second time zone function from other manufactures, retiring it was a smart move, as most consumers will want to adjust the 2nd hour hand.


The GMT-Master II (16710) was discontinued in 2008 and replaced with the GMT-Master II (116710) The primary difference besides the 3186 caliber movement with Parachrom Bleu hairspring is the ceramic (Cerachrom) bezel. Some late production 16710s have been discovered with the 3186 movement.

The GMT-Master II with green hand Ref 116710LN retails for $61,200 in steel. This model was launched in Nov 2011.

Ref 116713LN GMT-master II Two tone, stainless steel and Yellow gold, $91,500

Ref 116718LN GMT-master II Solid Yellow gold with Black Bezel and Green Dial $228,500

Latest released GMT-master II Black and Blue Ceramic Bezel Ref 116710 BLNR launched into HK Market in June 2013 at $65,300 with no discount.

Yacht-Master II

In 2007, Rolex‘s launched the revolutionary regatta chronograph. It is now available in 904L steel for the first time, fitted with a Cerachrom bezel insert in blue ceramic. On the inside of the huge 44mm Oyster case, the Yacht-Master II features an exclusive function developed by Rolex – a countdown mechanism which can be programmed from 1 to 10 minutes and incorporates a mechanical memory, allowing it to be reset to the same countdown duration. Once launched, it can also be synchronized on the fly, enabling it to be adjusted to match the official regatta countdown. The Yacht-Master II is equipped with calibre 4161, a self-winding mechanical regatta chronograph movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex.

Ref 116680 stainless Steel 44mm, with a solid platinum bezel and was just released in June 2013. $145,300 max less 5% discount only due to its scarcity on new release.


Daytona Cosmograph
The story of the Rolex Cosmograph could be called the most chaotic of all the Rolex Oyster models. Rolex is keen on creating a winning product. The watch never really got off the ground until 1986 when the market for them exploded and the watches would often sell for double the retail price in Italy. The "Paul Newman" models manufactured around 1967 were and still are the most desirable of the Daytona models fetching prices over HKD$400,000. It retailed for around HKD$25,500 back then. In 1989, Rolex replaced the Valjoux workhorse movement with the Zenith El Premiro movement. During the 1990s, the Daytona was the only Rolex model not using a Rolex movement. In 2000 came the newly developed Rolex caliber 4130 with a 72 hour power reserve.

The stainless steel Daytona Ref116520 retails now at $87,500 for White Dial and $97,000 for Black Dial

Steel and Gold models retail for $113,000 and all 18K yellow gold for $265,000. Steel Daytona's have consistently sold for more than retail since the 1980s. The two-tone and gold models do not sell for over retail, unlike their steel counterparts.

Ref 116505 Daytona 40mm, Rose Gold $269,300

Ref 116515 Daytona 40mm in Solid Rose gold and Ivory Dial, $214,600

Ref 116520 Daytona Stainless Steel 40mm Black Dial $97,000 no discount

Ref 116520 Daytona Stainless Steel 40mm White Dial $87,500 net no discount

Ref 116523 Daytona Two Tone, 40mm $138,000


Ref 116528 Daytona 40mm, solid yellow gold $248,100


Day Date
Day Date (DD) The FlagShip of Rolex, I have been talking a lot about this model and I think many more people started crushed on this model, and a lot of HK Rolex collectors are looking for Colourful Vintage Day Date, especially Model Ref 1803 and Ref 18028, which has been introduced to the world as a Classic. As of this moment in time, their price is still low. However as for new watch, so far, there is never a single request on purchase nor price of Day Date, as Firstly I think they are not cheap, and second, those who can buy would not care too much if that is less 5%, less 10% or less 14%.

What are the hot models?
No. 1 Daytona Stainless steel Black Ref 116520, Price is $97,000 net no discount limited to 1-2 Pieces at each Rolex AD a month.

No.2 Submariner Green bezel and green Dial, Ref 116610LV $66,100 net no Discount, 2-3 Pieces a month available at Rolex AD.

No. 3 Submariner Black Dial Ref 116610LN $62,100, about 4 -5 Pieces a month for Rolex AD.

No. 4 DeepSea Ref 116660 $82,500 about 3 pieces a month, due to the high price and giant size, not too many people has the wrist to carry the watch, the demand is much lower than Submariner Ref 116610LN.

So we can buy this watch easily at Rolex AD.

Selection

It is hard to tell which model suits you, some young woman wear a giant DeepSea, some men of 6 foot wear an Air King, I think if you feel that is good and meet your budget will be best choice for you!

Price and Discount

Note: Price listed here is rough estimation only, normally walk-in can get 5% discount from Rolex AD in HK on these prices. Some VIP get 8% discount for Submariner, Explorer and GMT-Master, 10% to 14% on other Date just or Solid Gold Watches. We sometimes understands as they buys a lot of watches a year. However, Rolex is mandatory not allowing any Rolex AD to give more than 5% as to control the Brand value of Rolex like other luxury brands Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Cartier and Chanel.

Price in HK is hkd$61200 + 5% discount in AD for brand new. Have you heard of Po Wan Loi at causeway bay? In their website, BNIB of 116710 is hkd54500. Dont know if still can discount. I am willing to travel to HK for a good buy. Thanks in advance.

HK Snob said...

HK Snob

HK Snob said...

Hi JRG
Group of Watch fans and Rolex AD Managers said that the price for GMT master you mentioned is weird!?
There is no way you can buy with Just $54,500 for such a new launched watch NOW.
Beware!
HK Snob

JRG said...

Thank you for the warning. I think it was too good to be true but I had to ask an expert. Unless perhaps from a grey market dealer? Do you know of any?
You also mentioned about preowned shops like Lung Shing and Kuen Kee, and if i remember right, 116710LN in the range of hkd 42-48k, is that right? Are those in excellent condition? Still deciding whether to get brand new or preowned if the price difference is big and watch condition is good. I'm really in the hunt for this watch for my birthday. Thank you once again HK snob and will await your reply.

HK Snob said...

Hi JRG,
As what we learn, yes, too good to be true, and a lot of sales gadget and gimmick starts with attractive price. but when you go there, " sorry sold out!, please try considering other models..."
Well, I do not think that price is valid as it is too low even grey dealer could make. As I had two orders for such watch at Rolex AD at $63,500 but no stocks. they have to wait.
Those Goods at Lung Shing is in an average excellent Plus condition. But I were you, wait for a while and I think the price of the Blue Pointer will drop very soon.
Remember the first Green glass Milgauss, it was sold at Sky high $130,000 for the first one in HK., The rich buyer was able to enjoy one week , after that price dropped 40%!
Wait for the stock comes and you get get possible less 5-8% discount. use that money to pay a good celebration with your girl friends whilst you wear the Brand new GMT master II Blue Points!
HK Snob

JRG said...

Hi again HK snob, I think we have a bit of a confusion here. I am after the 116710LN with the green pointer, and not the 116710BLNR with the blue pointer, which is very new and hard to come by, and no discount yet.
To go back to my previous question,for the green pointer, $5450 still too good to be true?
Another question, with the coming out of the GMT master II with the blue pointer, do you think it would affect the price of the green pointer,since people always want the new one, maybe have a bigger discount? Because if blue pointer would have a discount, it would bring its price closer to the older green pointer, making blue pointer more desirable. Thanks and have a good day.

HK Snob said...

Hi JRG,
I see

Reg 116710LN at $54,500, I think Possible. That is another 2000 dollar than the price i get for new.

yes, with the new Launch 116710 BLNR, price will not drop at Rolex AD but at grey dealer as they have to sell old stock. Rolex will control wisely with transition phase in of 116710 BLNR.
It would not affcte the price of new LN but the used one, yes but no much. Same as 16170 , some people are still buying this in teh 2nd hand market. Right, I see no price drop much at all.
HK Snob

JRG said...

Thank you for that quick reply. With the price of GMT green pointer at hkd$61200 (not discounted yet) and blue pointer at hkd$65300, a difference of only hkd$4000... I think I better wait for more stocks to come in, maybe they can give a 5% discount on the blue pointer by then, as you mentioned. Hopefully, they would not announce a price increase yet.
At first, I really wanted the green pointer but the more I see pictures of the blue pointer, I'm beginning to appreciate it more. Thanks again HK Snob, your blog is such a big help. Until then, I will be following your blog for more updates. More power to you Pang Yau!

HK Snob said...

Hi Pang yau,
I can get less 8% for you on Blue Pointer when goods comes HK in larger Quantity! Won't take too long I think. I will keep updating you.
HK Snob

JRG said...

Pangyau HK Snob
No update yet on the availability of the blue pointer 116710BLNR in HK? How much longer do you think we have to wait? I sure hope it becomes available before Rolex announces another price increase.
In the meantime, I am enjoying reading your other blogs.

HK Snob said...

JRG
Pang Yau, I had a notice that there will be goods arriving HK next week. I have reserved one for you. Make you you are in HK next week, $63,500 no discount.

I have been looking at many used rolexes at dealers around HK - Causeway Bay, Central and TST to be exact.

What do so few of the watches have boxes and papers ?

Thanks

Magnet

HK Snob said...

Hi Magnet
You mean Why!?

Well, I have seen that there should be mnay come with Paper, boxwise, there may be less and partly people does not keep the box after a few years.
For example, Lung Shing and Kuen Kee, I see that some of their watch like 20% has paper, and may be 10% has both Box and paper.
In fact, paper is more important than Box, we we can easily buy the box in the market, but no way for the paper. Box price varies from HKD$300, to HKD$2000.

Hi HK Snob.

Been reading your blog and it's very helpful. Am looking to get my first rolex.. keen on Daytona 116520 stainless steel black dial. Can I check what is the price from Rolex AD. Is it still HKD 97000 nett? I will only be transiting HK so thinking of getting it from the Rolex boutique in HK airport departure lounge. What are my chances of finding one there? Thanks

HK Snob said...

Hi
You may see that I had an anouncment last Saturday that HKIA Rolex had a brand new REF 116520 black at just HKD$93,000.
and Later I met their supervisor by I left HK, they sold it on the same day, Of course, that is a super good offer!
Well, I can not tell as this is crazy to get Daytona with $93,000
If you want to buy it. One day, you pay full fare there and they hod one for you. or you Whatsapp me and I will notify immediate When I get special offer again. Are you HKer?!

Hi HK Snob, what is the current price in HK for the new 2013 GMT Master II Blue Black Ceramic Bezel? Is it possible to get a discount? I'm visiting HK in Dec 13.

Hi HK Snob, what is the current price of the new 2013 GMT Master II Blue Black Ceramic Bezel in HK? Is it possible to get a discount? I will be visiting HK in Dec 13.

HK Snob said...

Hi Toh and Damien
Well, Ref 116710Blnr may have some stock in Dec , but not too sure they will offer discount or not, as most of the time the new Model will be supplied in a controlled quantity to maintain the HITs. This is the Rolex marketing strategy over the past ten years.
Wait unitl they release on larger volume, or you have to pay HKD$65,300. provided there is stock in Dec. HK Snob

Hai Hoe Toh said...

Thank you HK snob for the advice. Not too sure if I would wait longer or not. With the current strong SGD currency, HKD 65.3k still means it will be 4-5% cheaper than what I could get in Singapore but also not too sure how long I have to wait before they might offer a discount.

Do you know how long would it be before they release it on larger volumes? 1yr from official date of launch or longer?

Hai Hoe Toh said...

Hi HK Snob, is there any particular AD which you think gives better discount or service, e.g Chow Tai Fook, Emperor Watch, Oriental, King Fook or etc etc? And also if I pay by credit card, does the AD charge extra?

HK Snob said...

Hi Hai Hoe Toh
Most of the AD has special Discount to VIP other than walk-in discount of 5,
Mail me if you want more as I can not disclose here

Thank you for the feedback. I always believed Manila was expensive for luxury items? Anyway are you saying its possible to buy Ref 116520 Daytona here in the Philippines and at a price similar to Hong Kong. If so any help on Price in Peso. Also location of store. I live in Cebu however i will be in Manila at the end of the month.

HK Snob said...

Hi britExpat,
Well, mya be i misled you.
Manila Rolex AD has Daytona, as I saw one in June at Fort Rolex AD.
Selling about 10% higher than HK.

What I mean is deposite to oen fo th Rolex AD some money and wait, you wil be jump to the top of the queue for the watch, as everyone leaves a Phone number.

I cancel my trip there or I will be there tomorrow.

Hi HK Snob, had chance upon your blog and wow!! it's super informative to newbies like me who wish to purchase watches in HK.

I'm looking to purchase a pair of preowned rolex datejust for my parents. Looking at steel & white gold with diamonds (26mm/31mm) for my mum and steel & yellow gold with diamonds (36mm)for my dad. Not so particular abt paper as it's for own wear.

How much will i be looking at?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Regards,
frenzzsg

HK Snob said...

Hi Frenzzsg

How about Ref 178274 31mm with dia, New Watch price is List $69,500 less 10%, used 90% new is approx. $39,500-46,500

Ref 116234 TT 36 mm with no diamond New is $78,500 with diamond is about $92,000 less 10%.
used with 95% new is about $55,000-56,000
The used watch price is an estimated price as all depend if there is paper or box.
Higher than that price is not recommended at all, IMHO only

Thank you.

There is little we can buy on gold with HKD$70,000. Only the Two Tone Date Just I had posted a last week about the Lapid Blue dial, It is an new old stock, Super good deal as Rolex keeps the old price for the past 10 years. One of the Sngaporean Collector bought two already

Yes I would like one. I am in HK.
What is the difference between black and white? Is the detailing different? Or just different colour of dial?
I thought black was rare, but I saw mainly black S/S for sale secondhand.
Thanks

HK Snob said...

Hi Lau
Where are you from?

The watch itself is same under the name of Daytona Model Ref 116520, White and black is the dial colour, Many more people like black, most women like white.
I like White more as it is easier to read the time. Well nowadays, people wearing Rolex Daytona does not care easy to read teh dial or not. Mail to me feverip266288@yahoo.com.hk and I give you more information

Thank you for your information. I just arrived, while sitting on the plan, i told my lady about my intention, and she strongly discouraged me to by a GMT. Instead, she recommended a Datejust.

So I will need to visit some shops to see which model I should choose as my very first Rolex.

If you have a price list for the Datejust models, please kindly email me!

Hi, HK snob. Diggin your blog!
Is the datejust (36 mm) gents model 116200 (white or black index dial, smooth bezel, jubilee) easy to find in Hong Kong (or Singapore)? Have been looking for this model in several places in Europe, but they never seem to have it in stock. From what I understand it's a very simple and basic model, so I do not understand why they never have this one in stock.

Hi Kung Hei fat Choi

Well, comparing GMT master II wiht Milgauss, I think it is more sexy to wear a Green glass Milgauss rather than the GMT Master II.
Butif you have concern on value retention, I think the GMT Master II could be better choice.
As There are more people like this model over Milgauss.
Price Ref 116400GV Milguass $59,600

Hi HK Snob! Do you mean a VIP can get 10% off for 179384? I have tried many AD for similar stuff, not excactly the same model but one with similar set price(as walked in, of course), no matter how many times I try and how many ADs, they only offer standard 5% off, so I give up and save the money. But I bet I will buy if they can offer me better discount.....any advice? Many thanks in advance.

Consider parallel goods, or Gray Dealer watch for Daytona

Hey mate, hope you're well. I'm coming to HK Friday and will be looking for a complete set patina mint condition Sea Dweller (either 16600 or 16660). If you can point me to the right shop that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Bilad
Panerai and PP has no discount at Boutique, outside shop has a few percents for Panerai and very minimum for PP. of course subbject to model, some may get a few percent.
HK Snob

Susana said...

Hi Mr. HK Snob!
So, do jewellery shops like King Fook still offer their standard 10% off for PP? They used to offer that discount some time ago, but the last time I asked for information was almost 3 years ago already.....

HK Snob said...

HI Susana
For King Fook PP, I think depends on model not like Rolex stadard discount is 5%.

I have not purchased any new PP recently, really I have no idea and there are so many "Special PP" that has special Price...
Some even over priced like Daytona Black which list price is $87,500 and normally you can't buy without HKD$91,500.

Hi there. Why can parallel goods be cheaper, as the AD overseas' list price are the same or even more expensive than HK? After deduction of tax, the price can be higher, how can they make a profit? Thank you.

HK Snob said...

Parallel is sold as a under table operation with lower dicsount in lots,

Parallel goods also include htose was bought in volume at higher dicosunt on old prices, that can be significant in the price with new goods selling at Rolex Ad
They can make profit if client believe that is real good stuff.
Anyway they have their way to sell to his customers.

Re: Parallel
Thanks a lot. So do they buy from wholesellers, ADs overseas or overseas agent in lots? If they buy on old prices, that means the chance that they have good price on new stuffs is slim? Thank you.

HK Snob said...

Parallel
Some "SHOP" sells batches of Watches at discount to local and overseas watch distirbutor as they can have volume sale disregard of higher proft margin.
They sometime can offer less 15% to end user and likely more to Distributor. but Rolex Does not like this practice at all...
You know waht "Shop" means?

i mean

Rolex AD!!

Anonymous said...

Parallel - thank you. But can't understand the logic of those ADs, if they can sell higher price to end users, why do they sell it at lower price to distributors/ gray market dealers, just to ensure the high volume? "Earn a bit lesser but with higher volume"?

HK Snob said...

parallel,
busines is soemtime not as simple as we see, for those sale with bigger volume, there will be amixture of hot cakes and some of the most neglected watches at bigger discount.
You know, if you can make a bigger volume in sales, somehow even you sell at lowr margin, you get better bargining power with the supplier... To get more hot Cakes... this is how they play, and seems the bigger shop has a bigger dumpling sales.
Hot cakes i am saying is like Daytona Black, Submariner, Deepsea...
