    wow. which is this?

    I believe this is the now-discontinued Saxonia automatic. This is definitely in the range you've been considering.

    Fantastic watch, Medtech.

    Are there any Sinn fans in here? Looking at getting either a 756 or EZM3 and can't make up my mind

    Anyone know if this is legit? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_1115wt_1141 Won it on eBay. Is it also a decent deal? Thanks.
    i am no great authority but looks ok to me, a friend bought from this seller and has had no problems. i'd say the price is decent, not particularly cheap, around the going rate. enjoy it, speedmaster is a great watch.

    This thread has gone from die cast to gold.... some great watches put up lately. Especially like the APs and the FP Journe with the silver dial.

    Good eye. It definitely is the old (better imo) Saxonia Automatik date.

    Hi everyone,

    I'll be heading up to Europe in about a months time starting from Vienna, to Munich then up to Paris before departing from London.

    I'm actually hoping I could purchase a JLC Master Control (the base model version) somewhere along the line but I do have a few questions:-

    1. If I were to purchase the watch from the JLC boutique in Champ Elysees and reclaim the VAT from one of those VAT processing counters in the nearby area, do I have to redeclare it again when I cross into England?

    2. Alternatively if I reclaimed the VAT before departing from Heathrow, will I still be eligible for an on the spot refund in cash bearing in mind that I bought it in Paris? I'm just wondering as a relative of mine mentioned that their VAT was never processed and their queries to the processing firm was never replied (I'm not 100% clear on the details but it may perhaps be due to their amount claimed didn't exceed the threshold...who knows...)

    3. To reclaim at VAT at heathrow, is it required to have all the packaging with you?

    Thanks for any responses in advance, I've been saving up over 2 years now for the watch.... so hopefully the time will come soon when I relegate my seiko quartz to "beater" status....
