"The Call" - How long did you wait!?

How long did you sit on the 'wishlist' before you got The Call? Specifically, for our Swiss Crown wearers.. I had a nice experience with an AD yesterday. I finally tried on a 226570 and to my surprise, despite it being ostensibly large on paper, the slim case and proportions work really well to shrink it down to acceptable levels. The AD volunteered to add me to the wishlist - which I initially laughed at, but ultimately, took her up on. I am now checking my phone every 30 seconds in case The Call comes in...

9 months for me back in 2022 for an OP

After expressing interest in either blue or green datejust (fluted/jubilee/motif dial) 鈥.I relaxed and awaited the onset of old age 鈥3 weeks later 鈥HE CALL鈥.by then my funds had been reallocated to more pressing needs鈥alk about feeling like a time waster馃う鈥嶁檪锔忦煠︹嶁檪锔

I waited 8 months for a blue dial OP. That still sells over retail on the used market, so that too unreasonable. Now, I'm waiting on the Sub. Hopefully not another 8 months wait.

Abt 2.5 months for a yacht master 40 rodium dial in 2022 and 9 months for a datejust 36 fluted on jubilee with mint dial in 2023.

Took my name off the "list" and stopped pursuing any Rolex at all. I refuse to play games to spend my money and there are so many brands out there doing it as well or better than the Crown.
