Good evening all, I'd like to pick your collective experience to help me decide whether or not to pull the trigger on a Premier Automatic. I've read as many reviews, oppinions and discussions I could get my hands on (including a lovely review on this very forum) and have decided that I'd very much like one for myself, though I'd prefer to swap the leather with the bracelet from the SPB001.
I've never bought a watch more expensive than 250$ and this particular one seems to be going much cheaper than RRP as of late.
I'll be in the US next month for circa 10 days for a conference, and that's my window to purchase, as it has been discontinued in my native England. So far I've seen prices vary from 950$ down to 650$ (Amazon) and 588$ (one on ebay). My question is: Should I order the watch from Amazon, which has the combined advantage of being (a) relatively cheap and (b) safe from replicas/fakes, or should I wait to see high-street prices in San Antonio and NY? I've never shopped in the states and have no idea what prices to expect in the high-street.
Essentially what I'm asking, is do you realistically think I'll be able to source one for a meaningfully lower price (eg:550 or below) in person within a few days, or should I play it safe and order it for 650? Am I seriously at risk of a fake if I don't?
