I've been wanting to get a Black Bay for a while. Well that time is coming up soon.

Any recommendations on where to buy and if I could possibly get it below MSRP would be helpful. Looking specifically at this one: M79230N-0009.

I would check out Torneau if you have one near by. I don't think you will have a hard time finding a regular Black Bay. If somehow even the regular Black Bay has a wait list at the Torneau near you, check out Chrono24 online. It's a watch marketplace that has new and used watches that people are selling. They have some below MSRP that are barely worn.

Not from the US - but my Black Bay steel has been the most accurate auto I have ever owned. Consistent 1s a day. Super impressive.

Try your local store first. Otherwise my go-to online sources are Chrono24, bobswatches, crownandcaliber, luxurybazaar, and thetimepiecegentleman.

I have a local dealer who told me they don't do any discounts. Did you guys buy at MSRP? I will check on Torneau.

Another source for watch purchasing is the grey market: same brand, same new watch, at a discount price; but without the manufacturers warranty, and no taxes to be paid if outside the state that they are located in.
As a side note, the same thing that is happening in the car market, with inflated prices, is happening in the watch market: watch prices are at an all time high.

Good to know I probably wonít get a discount. Iím familiar with the grey market but I would like to keep a warranty of some kind. Thanks

I got my BB58 lightly used from a dealer on Chrono24, I was out the door below MSRP with basically a new watch.

Brought my BB GMT in Spain. almost 20% off... and no VAT.
It might be even worth it to fly in . buy and fly out on the same day.

I’ve had a blue Pelagos for a few years and am waiting on the black left hand ‘LHD’ model. Great pieces, as mentioned above, they keep excellent time, look great, and are shockingly good value compared to the big brother Subs - better depth rating, equal build quality, titanium easier to wear everyday, and looks great.

There’s a limited edition BB Harrods model with a green bezel that looks great, if you can find it, but I’m a sucker for green.

Really tempted to get a BB GMT for travel. Local dealer said no discount which I found weird.

I've got 5 Tudors and I've never managed to get any discount on any of them (I'm in the UK)

If you don't mind not having a full factory warranty, you can go with a grey market site like Jomashop. I've purchased watches from them before, they have their own warranty for 4 years I think. But again, you're using a 3rd party warranty for a $4K watch. If you're okay with that, you can snag up a nice timepiece for a good deal off of MSRP.

Looks like an old thread, but here is my only Tudor. Awesome watch, and nearly perfect as a timekeeper - about + 1 second per week. Amazing.
