    Never Thought I would find it !!

    I took my little sis shopping last Friday night, as there was a big sale on at the local shopping centre (mall). I was having a look at the watches, when I spotted what looked like a classic DW-6900, it was marked at $199 (AUS) $155 (US). I thought wow this dare for a DW-6900, I had a closer look and realise it was a G-7210-1 . This is the watch I have wanted to buy for my dad but could never get my hand on it. I asked the sales-woman for the prices and she said that they where having a sale and that its $185 (AUS) this I thought was still to dear , but asked her to hold it for me til Saturday. On Saturday I was busy and could not make my way to the store so I thought that they already sold it :oops: . Sunday I went in to the CBD and search high and low, but no luck O| . Australia-Melbourne has a really poor collection of G's, Ozzie can second that O| . Anyway, I was really getting down as I thought that I had the chances to buy it but miss out because I hesitated :-S . So I went back to the mall and I asked the sale-woman about the G-7210-1. To my surprise they still had it . She wasn't the same person that serves me on Friday so I ask her what was the best she could do? She checked her book and said that the best she could do was $155 (cash). I almost jump out of my skin :-D :-D . I kind of thought about it for awhile , I think she could see that and said that if I really wanted it I can have it for $130 (Aus). I BROUGHT IT!! :gold :gold I could not believe my luck. If I had brought it on Friday I would have paid $200 for it . I waited an extra day and saved $70 of the price . I think I got a real good deal as I saw in Japan they were still going for 11000-16000 yen for it. The GL-7210-1:gold :gold :gold :gold :gold :gold :gold

    That's awesome Mick

    You can find these models obviously in Sydney or Melbourne, not much up here in Cairns

    Better to support the national economy

    Nice little story of watch-lust.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
