    I bought 2 watches from them just last week as gifts for my parents - very good service.

    I assume prices are negotiable? Prestigetime throws in at least a little discount if you try.

    Another satisfied Zeetan customer here. I bought a Chronoswiss Delphis from him last year.

    A good place to get reviews on watch-sellers is at http://www.watchnet.com/. Click on the 'Good Guys' tab and search away.

    zeetan rarely if ever further discounts his watches, unless he is trying to clear them out. His prices are usually low enough that even with a discount from prestige, he will still be lower. Also, you'll get a manufacturers warranty from him.

    In my experience, both will give you an extra discount but that's mostly to be a good sport. The size of the additional discount is very small

    When i was shopping for my IWC I called prestige, they did not have the model I wanted and I was not going to get anything but that one, they spoke with me and answered all my questions knowing full well they would not sell a watch to me that day.

    Very nice people from what I could tell. As so many others have already said, I too would have no problem buying from them.

    They are a legitmate seller, never heard of any bad experiences with them. Their prices are lower because they are a grey market dealer, they get their watches from authorized dealers (dealers get the watches at 50% retail for most brands), they work on a lower margin or in a broker capacity and they do not offer manufacturer warranties. Many grey market dealers offer the manufacturer warranty so prestigetime is actually a bit behind the game. Malaysia and Singapore are the cheapest places in the world to buy a watch. I know of two very good/very reputable Malaysian grey market dealers that give unbeatable prices and the manufacturer warranty.


    edit: On most ETA movement watches (Omega, Breitling etc), I wouldn't care about a manufacturer warranty versus a dealers warranty as those watches can be fixed by a trained monkey. For the JLC or the other higher end brands, I'd probably want the manufacturer warranty.


    Hi Mr. Edmorel,

    If it's not too much trouble, can you refer their contacts to me? I reside in Malaysia and I am shopping for an Omega Seamaster 300M Chrono. THanks!

    Best Regards,
    Camon
