This is irritating for the average consumer. When I was looking for my LV, the first two ADs I went to said the same. Unless you spend 100K a year here, you will have no chance for getting this watch. We save them for those clients who wish to spend that money with us. So I left, and at the third AD said they did have them; but, not on display. They would only show and/or sell them to anyone who inquired about them. Naturally, I did business with that AD, gave them scores of references, and told everyone about the 1st two ADs refusing to do business with me.I actually spoke to a Vegas Tourneau sales rep about that and she said that the SS Daytona is for the guys that drop over 100k p/ year with them. She politely declined to show me one, but said they had two of them on site. She also denied the existence of a "list". I got the same story from my local AD as well.
