Is there a website for getting price quotes from AD's across the country?
I am looking to buy a new Rolex Submariner for my dad. Is there a reliable website where I can get price quotes from authorized dealers across the country? The prices for these things can vary a lot depending on how much discount the dealer is willing to give.

That's exactly right. A dealer in Chicago got IWC support pulled when a representative was able to walk in and get a discounted quote. The dealers have to know you - to an extent specifically know you're not a company rep - before they cut you a deal. In general though, depending on make and model, you could pay as little as 65%; for example, my dad won't pay more than 65% for new Breitling or 70% for new IWC and I've seen Richard Mille watches go for as little as 50% their original retail, but those are over-priced.

As Blair said will never happen for ADs. You will find grey market advertising a price on a lnib model or even "email for pricing".East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
we're gonna do what they say can't be done.

I thought getting 10%-20% off retail on luxury watches was pretty common, I read this read before posting here: Will Auth Dealers Give a Discount?
In fact in Park City one of the stores offered me 20% off on a Breitling without me even asking, just so they could make a sale.

I'm sure there's some truth to that - my dad actually found a NY IWC company store had its grand opening yesterday and he might have made a visit today. What I was not saying was that I could stroll into Swiss Fine Timing and with no rapport get a Breguet marked down 30%; what I am saying is you might, after getting some maintenance done there and making several visits and talking with them over the course of a few months, have them sell below MSRP. No one I knows pays retail, either before now or ever, independent of wealth.
