    This is the second AD in Singapore where these on-demand SS sports models are on display, but with a "Display Only" label.

    I spoke to the sales rep about it and he told me the following:

    1) These are NOT sold to anybody
    2) Rolex made them commit to displaying these models (perhaps so the cases won't remain empty?)
    3) The waiting lists remain -- he refused to sell me any of these models
    4) They only get 1 unit SS model every 3 months.

    Ah well. At least I got to finally see some of these in the flesh.

    This is kee hing hung at people's part. They always have a rack of steel sports models that are not for sale and for display and trying out purposes. Nothing surprising.

    This AD only sells Rolex and Tudor and have been around for ages.

    By the way, some of us have been saying that Rolex should provide dummy watches, i.e. case, bracelet + weight but no movement, for prospective clients to view, touch and try on a watch before they buy.

    I see this as a first step to achieving that.

    AD in singapore only sells to regulars. Those customers that have purchase records have higher chances of getting one.

    Display is a good idea. Honestly, if i'm going to shell out 10k+ on a watch, i need to try it on first.
    Agreed, even if it's just like the OP's description. An AD had a Daytona, the maligned two-tone with white dial, and I tried it on just to see what it's like. It shot the Daytona range to the top of my chronograph wish list.

    I'm genuinely curious as to whether or not this would work.

    Can someone please try this?

    You’re going to end up collecting scratches anyway... Why not collect your first while beating Rolex at their own ridiculous game?

    I don’t think a minor scuff would ruin a display model for a very in demand watch.

    Scratch the crystal. It would still cost less than going grey market.

    Yes, but a dubious one at that.

    That's not a $10,000 Rolex. That's a $2,500 Tudor......
    isn't it right to say that Tudor n Rolex are from the same family?
    be it from engineering of the product,marketing of the product,until sales of the product,use the same tactics as Rolex as well?
    A piece of my favorite timepiece, is like a dish of local delicacies. It's not about how good it may look, or how branded in may came from popular stalls or restaurants. It's always the materials and concoction that produces the best keep!

    Buy something else would be my reply to this. Buying a Rolex is not life or death.
