    Saw this for A$650 the other day... would be very tempted with a further discount but that would have inevitably meant another watch, which I don't need......

    Saw it in a generic jewellery store chain in Sydney funnily enough; it's a modern re-issue piece. Also comes with a black dial.

    For the Aussies out there the sticker price was $650 at Angus & Coote (I think).... you could probably negotiate a 20-30% discount on top of that. But like I said, I need another watch like a hole in the head at the moment.....

    That sounds like quite a bargain, considering how most Longines Conquest pieces are usually USD $2-3k on average.

    You and me both. [​IMG] But considering that it is in the backwaters of Aus, do you think I should watch out for crocodiles?

    Sydney, hardly a backwater. I'm in Sydney right now (at work) typing this. Like the Prince of Paisley, I need a new watch like a hole in the head, but...

    Yes, but I'm going by the quality of your cricket team, you understand?

    Hello! I have a Timex Camper and wanted to know whether or not a NATO or zulu strap would fit on it. I am worried that I can loop the strap behind the watch. Thanks! [​IMG]

    You are good. Just make sure the strap is the right width.
