Stumbled across this thread and would like to ask where would you go, in Tokyo, that would have the largest selection of Limited Edition (LE) GS?
For the non-LEs, I'm aware of the usual spots (BIC, Jackroad etc) for good deals.
Ginza and Waco are the natural choice. But I'm wondering if there are any shops that stocks LEs and at reasonable prices.
Yes, the two in Ginza is where I would go. I was in Japan twice in the last 18 months. That said, I still chose to purchase my GS from a US based AD. The buying experience was amazing.
Sure. I had never actually purchased a watch (or I guess anything this expensive) without ever having seen it -- not to mention handle it. All I knew about the SBGH001 was through forum posts and other forum members who were so generous in sharing their experiences with the watch.
The AD I purchased it from was out of state. He was super patient with all my questions -- and was pleasant throughout the entire process. After I decided to buy it, he was equally patient in the sizing process since I wanted them to size it for me before shipment. I also had a trade-in, so I had to ship the watch to them before they shipped the GS. I felt comfortable doing all of this, even with pretty large valued products being shipped both ways.
This was before my trips to Japan. In fact, while in Japan, there were a few pieces I considered getting, but didn't really see any reason to purchase it there. Purchasing it through a US based AD, I knew I had to assurance that if something went wrong, I ship the watch to the US AD and they manage all the coordination with GS in Japan. I didn't have to worry about language differences, time zones, updates, etc. That to me was the biggest reason I purchased here in the US.
Hope this helps.
