His price was $3000-$3500 less than all the quotes I got and he was the only one who didn't do "waiting lists". I do have the limited edition(50th anniversary) submariner and a SS and gold datejust that I have to send out for repair . I also have a Montblanc chronograph. I was my first serious buy in a watch. I don't like it as much as the Rolex cause it's to "flashy" and attracts to much attention. My Rolexes on the other hand look simple and people look at me and think there is no way it's real. I've actually overheard people say that I've worn them.
A friend of mine has two, one with black and the other with the white face, try as I may he wouldn't sell the extra, and he bought both as retail!

Another guy I know also has the 50th Anniversary Submariner, I really like the green face and bezel, especially the face which is actually pretty subtle. I real statement piece without being over stated.
