    Grey-market dealers and their inventory?

    Does anyone know where grey market dealers get their watches from? Would the general public (so to speak) be able to get it directly from the 'source' so to speak? Or is it mostly stuff from pawnshops etc..?

    I've noticed a lot of NOS items, so I'd really want to know if it's possible for the average joe to get his hands on them before they reach a grey market dealer?

      Not so much the latest models, more New Old Stock, like 80's - 90's pieces

        Its pretty common for some people to buy those watches and throw them in the safe and never wear them. I know a few guys with absurd rolex collections with NIB watches from the 80s and 90s. So your grey market dealers likely get them from people like that that sell off pieces of a collection.

          Just got to have a good relationship with an AD. Buy all models not just the popular ones. I spent around $65-70k at my old AD before I was offered really hot ticket items and we are talking Rolex. If you are wanting hot PP better get ready to drop $100-150k just to be offered a Nautilus or Aquanaut and that still might be low.
