    They wear very differently.

    If you did buy it at retail you should not loose on it but you wouldn’t get the money people have been getting.

    The grey delays are over stocked and selling off.

    In what way do they wear differently ? I've never even handled a sub but like the weight and chunkyness of the AK. The thing is , as things are at the moment i will have to buy it over the phone.

    It would be exceptional if a Rolex AD would sell, reserve or take a deposit over the phone- although exceptional times.

    For better insight try the TZ forum.

    The Air King feels small by comparison to the sub. The sub sits comfortably on medium to larger wrists where air king is for the medium size ( my opinion it Rolex !)

    Retail on the sub is £6300.

    Grey market retail resale ( warranty in the name of the original buyer) is £8k - £8750.

    If you want to get a sense of what you’d be offered try selling one to watchfinder ( say you own its new with stickers, etc)

    This may help show the volatility.
