Haha, tempting but I'm sure we can't :lol:

GLWTS though, I'm sure there will be a queue for it :thumbup:
Thanks. If this goes ahead, the watch will go to a dealer, rather sold through a forum.

When I had a chat with my AD a few weeks back, they said they've not had a 2018 DSSD in yet, allocation has been cut again and Rolex are now working 24 Hrs, which they've never done before apparently. I don't think I'll see or be offered one for a while.
Got the call yesterday morning - the 126660 Deep Blue has arrived at the AD :D

I would normally have dropped everything and headed straight to Manchester but was in Edinburgh for the Festival and Tattoo. I'm picking it up on Tuesday and will post some photos asap.

Hi Mibby, can I ask where you're Located and more importantly, where you get your Vostok's from?

I spent a considerable amount of time trying to locate a seller for one of their orange highlighted compressor watches but couldn't find a single stockist.

I'm in the UK, and most have come from Meranom.com

Stock comes and goes, and the SE models may well never come back.
Check the site regularly and buy what takes your fancy. Wait for a specific variant and it might never happen.
