Nice watch though.
Hate to say this, but BS. Everyone at TZ would talk about this, but try walking into Ben Bridge and saying "I'll take it for 30% off retail", ESPECIALLY on a new model. They'll give you 10% just for paying cash, maybe 20% if you drive a hard bargain. On something discontinued, that's been sitting in the display for a year, and you spend some time haggling...then sure, but you won't get 30% off as a rule. If you want that much off, use the internet or the Omega favorite AD. And BTW, no watch holds it value if you pay retail. In my experience, Rolex loses about 20% instantly, and Omega and Breitling can hit 50% really quickly. Some of the more obscure brands like Corum can lose even more as soon as you walk out of the door. Retail on the new black Bond SMP Chrono is either $3400 or $3600...I remember seeing the model you're talking about for as low as $1500 on the sales corner, but if it's in new condition and you like it, $1900 isn't bad.
