So I am planning on placing an “order” with my local AD tomorrow morning.
I have never purchased a Rolex or any other type of luxury watch before in my life.
My AD has essentially said he would be able to deliver the watch sometime around Christmas without truly fully guaranteeing it at the same time.
He requested a deposit of $2,000 (retail price is $10K).
Does this whole scenario sound pretty standard when ordering a Rolex?
Should I be asking for a guaranteed delivery date?
Also is negotiation on price for an ordered watch an acceptable practice? I was contemplating offering a larger deposit or a full cash payment for a slightly reduced price.
Would appreciate any and all feedback.
