Hi All WUS members,
I've been reading the forums for awhile now and thanks to you guys, I've found out a lot about B&R and have now decided to expand my search for not just a BR-01 but also an 02. In fact, since I have an 01 "homage" Wenger, I'm thinking I might just go for an 02 so that it really feels like I'm getting something different. Of course I realize an 01 feels many times better than my simple homage watch, but an 02 is truly different, both in look and feel. Anyways, I finally got to try on both the 01,02, and 03. Quickly realized that the 03 was too small. Thought about getting the 01 right then and there because it was what I wanted, which is a Carbon with Rubber Strap, but I realized that it was a bit more than I was budgeting (also saving for a Panerai, most likely 312N). So now I have my eyes on the 02 SS - thanks for all the wrist shots!
So, here's kind of my question - what is the typical "deal" on a B&R 01 vs 02? My AD was willing to give me $700 off the in stock 01. I didn't ask about the 02, but I'm thinking I may want to order an 02 SS since I really like the shape and it's more what I'm budgeting in the meantime. Is $700 off MSRP a killer deal? Does that seem possible on the 02 as well? Do dealers sometimes give you a better deal if they order it for you? I know that a "good deal" for some is paying full retail, but I'm just wondering if there's an "average" discount on these things. And even though I didn't buy a watch today, my sales rep gave me an issue of Revolution! Awesome magazine! Thanks in advance for reading and I'm new to the watch thing, so please pardon the ignorance!
