Hi all, just want to share the experience of my first purchase off Amazon.com. This purchase was inspired by ferrarista's excellent Zulu mod. Original thread is here:
new watch: sgw-300-hd with zulu 24mm
For any of you who wants to get an SGW-300HD, it's $51 right now at Amazon - if that's not bang for the buck I don't know what is. Ordered at the 23rd, chose the standard shipping which is $18.98 for an arrival estimate of 8-16 business days, and placed an import fee deposit which is around $15, bringing the total to $85.21. Still cheaper than the cheapest local online price I could find which is around $110. It travelled from Louisville, Kentucky in the US to Jakarta, Indonesia in 3 days. Incredible service. Well I live right in the middle of Jakarta's business district but still. I still couldn't believe it came this fast, when local online sellers will sometimes still take more than 2 days to deliver a watch. More photos to follow.
