I have looked at photo's, read reviews about the really individualistic MG S.A.R.
My affection over the years with the more popular Swiss made Rolex, Omega and Breitling have all been owned and sold on by me in typical WUS fashion. BUT.... the yearing and admiration for the S.A.R. has never waned. In a financial position I will be soon be in to walk into the Muhle-Glashutte dealership in Brisbane and plonk the cash on the counter for one. Wife has actually not shuddered and considered me quite mad as she used to do, especially with the Sea Dweller as it was a monster watch with a monster price tag. She just quietly mentioned something about my 'twilight years' or was it 'Twilight Zone'?
Anyhow, my question to the knowledgeable folks on this site is......
How can I tell the age of an S.A.R. that the dealer is showing me? Can one tell from the serial number how old it is? If its been sitting in his shop for years, I would like to know how to find this out, other that just taking his word for it.
I once bought an Omega Planet Ocean in a dealership. The guy told me it was brand new. When I got it home, I discovered it was nearly 4 years old. I went back and the store manager told me he regarded it as brand new, never worn and less than 5 year old stock but under a new warranty from the date of sale.
So, I don't want an old stock S.A.R. I know this model has been out for quite a number of years, so can anyone help me with how I can determine the age of an S.A.R.?
