Many authorized dealers discount their watches heavily nowadays with the slow economy.

So I think I finally narrowed down the watches I like--either Baume Mercier Hampton or JLC Reverso. But I have been looking at places to buy and the unauthorized dealers on the internet offer the watch at a much lower than retail price. Is it safe to purchase from these dealers? ie: http://www.prestigetime.com They are open about the fact that they are unauthorized. However, they claim that they get their watches directly from authorized dealers. What...
Is it possible to get a Reverso or Da Vinci for $3K? Would I have to fly to Switzerland for that?

Tag Heuer is working hard to go back to being a "proper" watch maker (rather than making fashion watches) and have launched some models that would satisfy the hardcore collectors. However, the Monaco Calibre 12 is not one of them. It's a nice watch with a good proven movement...
I am considering getting this watch for $2700. Would you say it's worth it or can I do better for the price? http://www.tagheuer.com/the-collecti...CAW2110.FC6177
Like I said, I wouldn't mind going up to 2K if I feel that the watch will retain some value.
This is such a nice watch. But I can't believe the discounted price is 50K. I can buy a car for that price. http://www.thewatchery.com/Girard-Pe...75-52-111-BA6A
I think the JLC watches are very nice, but they all start at around $7K, don't they? While I realize taht there are watches out there that easily go into the tens of thousands, I still think $7K is a lot of money for a watch. Any other suggestions?

I am not sure if you are married to the idea of a NIB watch or not. God, the concept of paying a grand for a new "Hamilton" of any kind sickens me, when you can get a real Hamilton, with a stellar and high grade movement in a gold case no less, for less. Mike I have never heard of Hamilton....

Does anyone know if purchasing these watches in Europe is cheaper considering that we get the vat back??
