It depends on the model. Some are higher than MSRP based on rarity (Daytonas for example) but most are much lower than what the dealers are allowed to discount. He has prices on his web site so you can compare yourself.

Two that are getting most of the daily wear; Omega Seamaster America's Cup Limited Edition and Tag Heuer Super Professional. The Panerai Rattrapante 212 and Foudroyante 0025 get occasional use as well.

I got a watch that was two months old for about 25% off, and let someone else pay the taxes. I actually met him while I was traveling in Orlando, he brought three different ones that I requested to look at. I still have him searching for a couple of years old Daytona for me. When I got back home I purchased a new watch for my father that I saved about 20% on. Shipped next day Fed Ex. He is really a class act. I will buy from him again. If you are a watch flipper(I am not) he will even tell you what he will buy the watch back for....

That AC edition is nice. I didn't know they had one without all the ETNZ stuff on it

The GMT II C is pretty badass. I'm happy that Rolex finally decided to release a 4,000 meter version of the Sea Dweller with the ceramic bezel and Parachrom mainspring. The DSSD is way too big for most people I know.

It is big, but my wrists aren't huge and mine fit me fine...but I did decide to flip it a while back since I wasn't wearing it enough...



Here are a couple of other watches that I'll always have...

An older Breitling that my Mom gave my Dad back in the early 70's



This one was my Grandfather's watch...It's an old rose gold chronograph



Here are a few others which I've flipped through the years...Yes, I have a bit of a problem









And we won't even start talking about the flipping of cars, motorcycles, and guns...

You're right. Bought in '98. I spent a few hundred dollars to have it reconditioned. Looks like new.

Just added this one to the collection. I figured it will hold/increase in value being a limited edition watch.
