me too frank! i wonder if it will be a co-incidence and we post the same watch lolpost #3408 of 522210/15/16 at 5:31ampost #3409 of 522210/15/16 at 8:07amQuote:
Year and a half ago ~30% off from AD in Northern Europe, so depends on the local market etc. I would say you get 20% off from AD if you just ask, more depending on the model you order.post #3410 of 522210/15/16 at 2:45pmpost #3411 of 522210/15/16 at 6:07pm@Dino944 I have been looking at the current Cartier Louis Cartier Tank XL (ref 1560017) a lot recently. I've had it on the wrist a few times now and really like it. I could see it coming home with me some day for sure.
I seem to recall you have a variation of that Tank, the CPCP...correct?
I was curious what about yours drew you in as opposed to the watch I'm considering. They appear fairly similar, other than dial finish. Is there something else I'm missing? I look forward to hearing any advice or information you have.
Also, please consider this a request to bombard us with photos of said watch.post #3412 of 522210/15/16 at 8:14pmpost #3413 of 522210/15/16 at 9:55pmpost #3414 of 522210/15/16 at 9:57pmpost #3415 of 522210/16/16 at 4:43ampost #3416 of 522210/16/16 at 6:52amThread StarterQuote:
Honestly I don't see much added value in getting a TAG from the AD. Unless your heart is really set on the latest model and/or an in-house movement, there is little risk in buying one from a grey dealer. Jomashop is the obvious one, and the discounts are always there. Ashford have them occasionally, and I'm sure there are others.post #3417 of 522210/16/16 at 7:15amQuote:Originally Posted by mimo

Thanks. Should I ever want to sell it (perhaps a few years down the road), will my ability to do so be compromised by not having original papers?post #3418 of 522210/16/16 at 8:10amThread Starterpost #3419 of 522210/16/16 at 10:01ampost #3420 of 522210/16/16 at 11:21amQuote:
I've bought several watches from both Joma and Ashford and they are authentic and give you all original box except warranty card (they'll have their own warranty card instead). However, I've read horror stories with using their warranty services so choose your poison wisely.
I purchased a Aquaracer chrono and the 3 hander last year. No issues with either watches. Flipped them both on private forums for slightly less but had no issues. Both Joma and Ashford are probably the biggest grey market online retailers currently so a lot of people have already bought stuff from them anyways.
Only thing I've put in as you have to measure the risk and make your own decision based on that...grey market with virtually crabby post customer service and save $$$ or go with AD, pay more but get possibly the best post warranty.
