So, my latest "must have" was a Helson Tortuga. It has been my daily search on WUS, in the Sale and Trade sections for the last few weeks. I spoke with a few members in regard to a trade or a sale but to no avail. Anyways, so I see a used one listed on Ebay and bid accordingly (up to $575.00) but do not win...very frustrating. I decided to email Helson directly, via the contact address on the website. My email basically asked if the Tortuga ever went on sale or if returned watches were ever discounted and re-sold. I received a prompt response from Peter, who asked me which of the watch models I was interested in. The Tortuga (with the full kit) is listed at $649 and is still available. I responded and told Peter that I wanted the Tortuga with the light blue face, numbers and the complete strap, bracelet and bezel collection. I also told Peter what my budget was, including s/h to Vancouver, Canada. To my surprise, I received a Paypal invoice from HWC, for the Toruga, light blue face/numbers and full kit...including shipping, for quite a bit less than retail!! I paid the invoice immediately and sent Peter a big fat THANK YOU email. He responded, along with a Fedex tracking number. Big props to Peter at Helson Watches for the excellent customer service and for making a "big kid" happy! I now await the arrival of my new watch...
