    I know AD sell at a profit margin of 40-50% or 100% markup( for brands like rolex, omega.. ), but what are the profit margin for grey market dealers? They usually sell the watches at a lower price, so the question is: do they have bigger margins/markups than ADs? AD profit margin threads: What...
  2. German watches
    I am just starting my watch journey and have a few questions. I have settled on Nomos to start, and thankfully have a dealer in town. I’m pretty sure I want a Tangente, but would like to go see it in person. I volunteer a lot in humanitarian aid and am considering the Doctors Without Borders...
  3. A. Lange & Söhne
    Thanks to a friend introducing me to ALS and then lurking in this forum too (!), I have fallen in love with a Lange 1 Moonphase, that I wanted to buy for myself as a promotion present 😁 I live in HK, and after visiting the ALS boutiques here a number of times to try it on and coo at it, I also...

    I really hope this is the right place to post this. I am truly sorry if it is not. TL;DR: Seeking advice for a friend that has spent over USD500,000 on a brand and USD 390,000 at this AD. The AD did lots of unfair and bad things. 1.Opening watch without telling us. 2.randomly raising prices...

    This is more of a funny question. Have you ever attempt to plot, trick, charm or flirt with an AD to get bumped up the list or be allowed to buy? List your failures and successes here!

    Have You ever embarrassed yourself at an AD or a watchmaker's? A while ago I needed my bracelet resized so I took it to a watchmaker. They needed me to try it on and I was so anxious I couldn't open the clasp. The stares didn't help. Lets hear You'r stories!

    So I phoned up a jewellers here in the UK - they stock Rolex, Tudor, Omega etc and are well known. I asked them how much it would be just to take a link out of the bracelet of my Breitling - the reply was "oh, we don't do Breitling here, you should try xxxxx" (who it turns out are the AD in my...
  9. TAG Heuer
    I recently asked for my local AD to order me a case to replace a damaged one for an earlier model Formula1. She said it would be no problem and that I would not need anything other than to put a new crystal in the watch and transfer the movement from the old to new case. Here is where the...
  10. Cartier
    I'm looking to buy a second hand Cartier Must 21 for my gf and I have found two that look very nice and with a "good" price. They appear to be the same apart from the fact that one is 1330 and the other is 1340. What do these numbers mean? Are they related to the year in which the watch was...

    Hello, I am new to automatic watches and am looking into getting a Nomos Ahoi Datum as my first watch automatic, however, I have a few questions. 1.

    Background: I am an Engineer/Conductor for a Canadian railway. I have been looking (for some time now) for a pocket watch for use at work. I don't like wearing wrist watches, and since I wear overalls at work, a pocket watch makes a good fit for me. The current rules are as follows: Every...

    After doing some research, I'm confused regarding the store Motion In Time located in New York. They offer cheap Planet Oceans on the site, so I'm thinking about buying it from them. But after reading costumer reviews, I'm not so sure on their reliability. My questions are...
