    In regard to the price, that was my initial thought as well. I am not sure what the RRP from an AD is/was? Anyone know?

    Btw, photos are appearing as they should it's just the attachment is returning an error. It shows up as: View attachment 187445View attachment 187446View attachment 187446 - might be one to ask forum moderators about. I am curious as to what the attachment is now

    That's £3,176 at current Xrate, so sellers seem to be discounting the watch by £1,000, (all but 1 I've referred to for the average of £2,197 are unworn with box/papers/int warranty.)

    Hello at that price I do not think that someone will sell the full set and again new with warranty even used this watch does not run the streets with this little production and there is more good Luck

    I paid $4700 Cdn (including taxes) for mine brand new in summer 2014; works out to about $3300 US using today's exchange rate.

    So. Very tempted. Have called a couple of the boutiques in London this morning. Seems between them they have 7 left.

    I'll also add that the Regents Street boutique, having told me that the price was £2,850, then said it was up to £2,990 due to the increase in price of new models.

    Who pushes up the price of discontinued stock?

    Equally when I asked if they would negotiate, the girl (Stephanie) laughed at me... Not the best way to win a customer.

    Ok, so never one to let sleeping dogs lie... I've been checking stock in the UK, and whilst smaller ADs might have stock, this is what's left in the boutiques, and the 3 big chain AD jewellers:

    Regents Street = 2
    Bond Street = 1
    Oxford Street = 2
    Royal Exchange = 1
    Westfield (west) = 1
    Westfield (east) = 1
    Sloane Street = 2
    Harrods = 0
    Birmingham = 0
    Leeds = 0
    Glasgow = 0

    Watches of Switzerland = 0
    Beaverbrooks = 0
    Earnest Jones = 0


    The chap I spoke to at Beaverbrooks was the most helpful, and he said the group had sold 3 of 5 allocated, and the other 2 had been returned to Omega.

    Sounds like the numbers might be low on this one - and what's left isn't selling all that fast.

    Also the RRP as confirmed by the boutiques that weren't Regent Street (aka the ArseHat store) is £2960.

    Yep, I am staying with my estimate of a little over 1000 produced at the moment.

    I think this will be an interesting one to keep an eye on over the next 3-5 years.

    I went and tried one yesterday... I liked it, but I didn't love it.

    Which under my new purchase rules, makes it a no-no for me.

    These will now quadruple in value...

    Yeah... You can't buy EVERYTHING that you like... Unless you win the lottery... And even then I probably wouldn't.

    It is a cool watch... But the connection just wasn't there .

    I believe they refer to this model in Europe as the "Rocket Master".

    Considered buying 777767xx - haven't decided. But the number isn't in the list. Not sure how a 70,000 spread in serial numbers comes to such a low production estimate of just over 1,000 (77727xxx > 77797xxx).
