I bought mine at Ross Simons in the Short Hills Mall. They discounted 10%. They also threw in a watch winder when I told them I was getting it for my birthday. Nice people and authorized Rolex repair.

If you or anyone need a Rolex call George Kovac. He had the purple and yellow 42 MTI. He can be reached at 305-530-1550. He has the best prices!!!! I bought few Masterpieces from him plus many others. Always beautiful watches at great prices. Tell him i said to call.

Iím interested in this watch featuring the Chapter Series which has Rolex repeatedly inscribed on the small stainless rim just outside the blue dial with the serial number inscribed directly below the 6 oíclock mark. Pictured is the model Iím talking about (as copied from ebay). The pictured watch does not have the Chapter Series option.

Iíve checked my local jewelers and theyíre not willing to discount the watch beyond 13% off MSRP. There must be a dealer out there thatís willing to discount deeper than 13%.

I checked ebay and found a broker out of NY that appears to offer the best deal. His username is topnotch-watch and has 100% feedback with 354 recorded sales. If you read the comments from those that have purchased from topnotch-watch, everyone has positive things to say. I spoke with him on the phone briefly & he claims to be an exclusive Rolex dealer with five of these watches in stock, but none with the Chapter Series option.

Would you trust an ebay seller in this type of sale? An internet or similar type purchase would also save 7% from not having to pay sales tax.

Would you have the watch professionally checked for authenticity upon receipt?

Would you attempt to purchase the watch from topnotch-watch by circumventing ebay and buy it direct by negotiating a further discount based on the savings from not being listed on ebay? A complete itemized list of exactly what is being included in the sale would have to be either emailed or faxed to me (contract) prior to the exchange of any money.

Can you recommend someone legit who can get me the new watch I want within the next few days at a competitive price?

Hereís a link to the watch as featured in one of the topnotch-watch auctions:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Rolex-Submariner...QQcmdZViewItem

Also notice that pictures of the same watch are being used for three of the topnotch-watch auctions.


Iím a real buyer whoís looking for advice.
Thanks!
Dan
What is the model of the one in the pic? I have always loved that watch.

13% doesnt sound bad for a retail dealer.

BTW- I am on my 3rd or fourth piece with Elite Time. An associate of mine has spent over 50k in watches with him. The prices are far less than what you would find at Tourneau or any Jareds.

Thumbs up

Thank you everyone for posting dealer info here and pm'ing me. I really do appreciate it! After careful consideration, I will be purchasing my new Rolex by week's end from a dealer within reasonable driving distance of my home in north NJ. The leads posted here from other parts of the country can likely help someone who's a bit more local than me. That's what's great about OSO. I'm sure I'm not the only guy out there that can benefit from this shared info.

I'll follow up this post with the results of my purchase.

Thanks again,
Dan
