This thread made me think back to trying out a Batman, thread below, amongst a few other watches one day last year.

Point was though that the pre-owned BLNR was about £9k which I thought was expensive, but now other shops in town with similar models are selling them at about £13-14k, crazy really and I wouldn't buy at the price, although some people do :?

I can't answer the specific OP question, however, from 2018 to 2019 (iirc announcing an increase in RRP prices at the end of the year to take effect at the beginning of the year) ROLEX increased their prices by @5%.
C60 FLE (Red JAG); C60 Trident 316L LE (Orange, Blue/Orange, Yellow, Black/Yellow); C60 Ombre LE.
C65 Trident Bronze SH21 LE; C65 Trident GMT.

I can't help with 2009/2010 prices, but I did find a June 2012 price list in my collection of brochures and other tat...

I scanned a couple of pages:

The June 2012 price list is interesting. :)

UK RRP remained at the same level all the way through until 31 October 2016.

10% increase from 1 November 2016, followed by 5% from 1 October 2018.

Many luxury brands have had far bigger increases over the past 7 years.

My explorer 2 from 2007 still has the original price tag with it. I think it was £2900 give or take. I had to pay pretty much exactly double that 12 years later :shock:
Cheers now

Seems like the prices moved quite a bit from the 2009 to 2010 list above.

Rob, are you sure you aren’t comparing the 2009 to the 2012 lists above, explains better the increase.

Yes you are right... Seems I can't read properly!
