I begrudgingly post this deal here as it is my grail and I can almost take it at this price but I would have to sell my entire collection to do it.....
tudor black bay blue ETA w/ Tudor warranty for $1879. Located in Japan and they charge 8% sales tax so that makes it $2029, and from what I could uncover the import tax to the USA from Japan on a mechanical watch would be a flat 8% making it $2192. Not sure how much they charge for shipping. If you can contact them and get them down a bit there might be a black bay with Tudor warranty to be had just south of $2000. According to their actual website they sold a blue black bay on bracelet for 200,000 yen which is $1700 USD. Seems like the leather should be had cheaper than on bracelet.
