With the Submariner supply in the authorized dealer market running at a painfully slow trickle we are seeing the prices climb on the resale side of things. When someone asks, when is a good time to buy a Submariner?, the simple answer is, as soon as you see one. The prices will undoubtedly continue to climb, as the demand and desirability will never subside. We have been very fortunate of late, to have several Submariners on hand. My only complaint regarding this increase in inventory is the fact that I’ve run out of adjectives to describe the perfect watch! . Produced in 1989 this watch would be an amazing birth year gift for a watch lover turning 30 this year. I did the math, the watch is also turning 30 this year. This watch was just serviced and respectfully refinished in April of 2019, and comes with original box and papers.
