Are these in stock now? I know there has been a worldwide shortage of late. Good price if you can get one. Going for more than this on the used market heat from me
11% from TCB too...

Primark couldn't make the exact watch, they could replicate the look of the dial somewhat, nothing more would share similarities .
All Rolex ADs sell at the list price. This isn't a price drop. The challenge with models like this that sell used at a premium is that they are impossible to find new. Got to go on a 2 year + wait list.

Exact watch, maybe £5000 I suppose.

If it looked similar but wasn't made in Switzerland from thousands of mainly hand made components, wasn't waterproof to incredible depths, didn't look amazing because it didn't have the same high quality finish, and wasn't worth considerably more immediately after purchasing, £25.
I reckon it is worth £300 in materials and labour. Rolex makes about 1 million watches per year, so they are not even as exclusive as a buyer migt think
So where’s the deal? Price is retail and I’d be hugely surprised if you could walk into any AD in the country and buy one!!

No cash back from Goldsmiths, they don’t sell Rolex online.
Does Goldsmiths online even display stock status regarding Rolex watches?

The deal is if you can get one at this price.

I don't think they make quite so many, probably more like 600,000. That sounds a lot, but Apple sell around 217,000,000 iPhones a year.

Whilst there will be a healthy profit margin, production cost won't be anything like as low as £300.

Sounds much like, without a human face, sold at an abbatoir, what would you be worth.

A few hundred parts, not thousands. Also, CNC made, not handmade. Also waterproof to the same levels as watches costing tiny fractions of the £6250 price...

So you would trust your life (with regards to breathing apparatus) with a 20 quid watch that promised to work properly at 1,000 feet?

And they are still partially handmade.

And my other points regarding aesthetic and resale/investment value?

probably cost quite a bit less than £1000 (materials/labour/distribution/advertising etc) to Rolex, with majority cost being labour -- and materials of not a lot more than £100.

I'd guess price to retailer ~ £2000 and consumer price is retailer profit / importer costs / service - repair etc

Definitely not. I would say all of your assumptions there are wrong, but especially that the retailer pays less than 1/3 of list price.

Yeah, definite waiting list situation for that (116613 btw).

I ordered a GMT ‘Batman’ a few months ago, don’t know when I’ll get it.

Hahahahaha. The pressure limits on any of these watches are a joke - what does it matter? There's very little believe me that this watch will do of any use under 10m of water. I completely agree with the quality of Rolex and that they are worth the money. I wear an Omega myself...do I wear it for diving? Nope it's left on the boat as on one wrist I have one dive computer and on the other...my spare dive computer. Mixed gasses, dive time, integrated air, no deco/deco time etc... the ACTUAL time from a watch is the last thing I need when underwater. Although I did take my Omega down to 40m once just to see (and it was fine as I expected).

Not a single component of a Rolex Submariner is handmade. They are apparently hand-assembled, but this is clearly not hand-made.
And yes I would trust my life equally to a £6250 Rolex 300m watch as I would to a £300 Steinhart costing 95% less.
Aesthetics are irrelevant, as someone's masterpiece is another's toilet paper. I don't have any thoughts on the current bubble in Rolex prices due to constraint on supply.

Clearly? I think there is huge pedantry in that sentence, but hey ho.

And Steinhart are TOTAL Rolex copies, they are doing much the same as Invicta, but charging considerably more.

Even £300 is too much for any kind of copy, if that’s your budget it would be far wiser to buy a Seiko.

I was in Selfridge's yesterday and popped into Rolex to see if the GMT master due in stock, the waiting list hasn't gone down it's still a 2.5yewr waiting list .

That's a truly decent attempt at a patronising paragraph, well done. If you feel that there isn't a gaping chasm between the phrases hand-made and hand-assembled then I do feel sorry for you.
Steinhart do indeed copy Rolex designs, past and present, and they make a fine watch, much much better put together and finished than any Invicta. I don't currently own any, but would not be ashamed to. What I was saying is that I would trust either as a 300m diving watch, not that many rolexes are used as such nowadays.
Also, Seiko don't do a budget 300m diver, that's why I chose Steinhart.

So, when was the last time you went to 300m? In fact, when did you last go to 50m?

Having read around it appears that i'm fairly close to the mark. But you're welcome to your opinion.
