    Public Forum
    Hi, I've noticed a deal from a Russian dealer that has a really good price. Hence, my questions. 1. Why do majority of Russian dealers online have such a good pricing? Do they have some special tax policy? 2. Why is it a popular notion around watch collectors that we should STAY AWAY from...

  11. Purchases from Europe: VATs?

    Public Forum
    I was about to order a watch from this company in Europe, and when I asked them "do I discount myself 19% VAT from the total price?" they said "No you can't". Is this originally right? My understanding was we are excluded from the VAT Tax; is it normal for a European business to decline in...

    HeY guys! I'm new to this site and I got a quick question for y'all...was this purchase good in your opinion? Not looking for a value or anything, but do, in your opinion, do you think that 130$ was good for a 1925-1926 (can't tell, the engraving in the back is pretty blurry) Rolex watch, in...
