Hello All,

I'll be in Singapore by the 3rd week of this month. I'll be there for about a month. I am looking for suggestions on good places to buy watches like Seiko, Orient Mako, Tissot, Tags. Any and all suggestions are welcome. My particular interest is in some good automatic Seikos and an Orient Mako if I can find one. I am from India and these watches are not available here. I am also looking for some good budget to mid-range swiss watches likes Tissots or TAG Heuers.

Please help me and I have never been to Singapore and don't even know if its a good place to buy watches.

Thanks in advance!!!

Plan to visit Lucky Plaza. I also remember seeing a lot Orient watches at the Mustafa Center.
Thanks brrrdn but I read in online tour guides that Lucky Plaza has become a major rip-off these days for electronics,phones, and watches. I like your suggestion on Mustafa Center though. Will try it out.

Mustafa Center.
Good suggestion. Last time I was there they had a nice, varied selection and good prices.

Big Time, which is recommended in Yeoman's site, is fantastic. Especially if you are looking for Seiko JDM models that would otherwise only be available in Japan or Online.

I got my SARB065 from there. Watches may come and go, but that SARB is definitely a keeper.

Singapore is a "target rich environment" for sure. There are tons of shops everywhere.

There are a couple threads already with a bunch of recommendations, including used/preowned watches.

+1 on Mustafa. Just fun to look around, lots of stuff to look at there.

Often the watch shops in the big malls will have various deals or discounts (tissot, etc.). You can also compare shops against each other.

Another BIG +1 for Mustafa!I was there just about 5 weeks ago.Went in with a pocket full of US $(US CASH gets MUCH better pricing than plastic) to buy something high end.Ended up getting 4 new Seiko Superior Divers at a GREAT price!

Mustafa is like the store that never ends. Took a walk in there one day... Managed to find my way out 6 hours later

Remember to file for the tax refund at the airport!
Oh ! do we get a tax refund while coming back from Singapore on purchases? I didn't know about that. Thanks "tc".

Last time I was there I bought a watch from skywatches store, the storefront isn't called Skywatches but the address is on their website.

Mustafa was also really good and they had quite a large selection.

Yeoman's blog has a good list of places to check out too (Watch shops that I have bought from | Yeoman's Watch Review)
