In the hierarchy of things, the customers that pay full retail are the most important ones to the business because that's where they make all their profits. Clearance sales are more for cutting losses and liquidating old inventory. If I had heard such a...

I have that AT in question and like it alot, while I think it looks good with a brown strap (though I have it on the bracelet) I have been told by many that it would look better on a blue leather strap. The longines is nice also but I would be concerned as I believe it is a modular chrono which would make me hesitate, plus overall value retention for Omega is a bit better, not to mention the quality of the movement....I was considering the Master dual crown compressor...

I know my brother in law tried this and they denied him...they said...

just got three from the outlet (BB not 346) for under 30 each, personally I like them as I am lazy and hate taking things to the cleaners, plus they look and fit decent enough for me
Omega planet ocean or a classic Speedy moon... I have had three Rolex watches and two Omegas...for showing off the Rolex takes the cake, but in terms of quality and value the Omega's impress me alot more. Also IWC is a good brand to consider. Good luck and also check out www.timezone.com
