Is there a way to buy a gmt Batman retail? The double resale is not great haha

But seriously, if I really wanted a new Batman I would:
- be prepared to pay 100% up front and have the cash on hand or in a savings/checking account
- be prepared to wait a year or longer
- learn as much as I could about Rolex and the watch, thereby ensuring you want it because of its inherent value, not its perceived value
- establish trusted relationships with local and online watch communities (redbar, retail shops, Facebook groups, forums, etc.) and the closest AD
- be prepared to go to that AD very frequently to a) see if you get lucky, b) show them that you’re serious, c) become friends with them, d) prove you’re not just a jerk who’s gonna buy it and flip it (assuming you’re not a jerk and are not planning to do this...)
- use the network you establish in the community to help improve your chances

Find an AD that you trust. Buy a nice watch with gold/diamonds for yourself or your spouse (can negotiate up to 20% off). Ask to be put on the list for a Batman. Wait 6-12 months for a call. And head there immediately.

Hello! I am an aspiring front end developer. I have decided to go back to college, and I am considering the WGU, CompSc bachelor program. I really like the idea of a self paced program. I am apprehensive for a few reasons. I want to get as much out of a college program as possible, and I’m not entirely concerned with getting through it as fast as possible. My other concern is that potential employers may not take the degree as seriously as a state college. Love to hear from any HR or senior devs
