This is mostly true, but unless you have a long standing relationship with a dealer, you'll be very unlikely to get any discount on Rolex or Panerai, one of the reasons those watches have so little initial depreciation. Sinn also has only one US distributor so discounts from Watch Buys are limited to their sales and promotions, which are relatively rare on Sinn models.
