    This is definitely true. I was never a big fan of the polished center links on the oyster so I feel like the jubilee is a nice alternative to that as well.

    AND, there was an article about dealer wait lists, over on WatchTime IIRC, not too long ago.

    IT IS NOT A LIST. That is, there isn't a set ordering, where you can say "ok, I'm #3 on the list, they get a new one every couple months, so I should have mine in 4-5 months." Doesn't work that way. The dealer's going to prioritize as he sees fit, which means he's going to keep his better, more steady customers happy first.

    And Rolex allocation to dealers may show some of the same practice...probably does. I have read, several times, that Rolex ADs are required to carry an extensive stock of the unpopular models and configurations...Yachtmaster, Sky-Dweller, the slower-moving precious metal only models like the Day-Date...which also makes you suspect that a dealer's gonna have problems getting the hot models if they don't live up to quota on the slower ones.

    The perplexing complication to all of this is that you still see the high-demand OPs and Explorers on the gray market...

    My AD calls it their 'registry of interest'. I call it the 'don't call us, we'll never call you' roster.

    So I should buy models in abundance to get a sport model?
