What exactly do you want? Steel/black or steel/white (or something else)?
That's kind of you!
I'm after the Daytona 116520 with white face, list price £7,950
Any help etc......
Sorry bc, they weren't much help. The chap I normally deal with wasn't in, and the guy I spoke to gave a pretty generic answer. Apparently they don't stock the steel models at their airport branches as supply is so erratic. White gold, rose gold, etc - no problem, but that doesn't help you. They did suggest speaking to their Bond Street store, which is the Mappin & Webb Rolex main branch, but he didn't expect them to hold stock even if they can get one.
As mentioned above, there is a chap in Burlington Arcade who might be useful, but I didn't see any Daytonas last time I was there. He had a lovely Deep Sea for your sort of money though There is also a vintage Rolex store there, and although they don't tend to stock Daytonas, they have some lovely old watches.
Otherwise it's the usual suspects - Watches of Switzerland, Watchfinder, etc. Harrods might be worth a try too.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
