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.
