    Affordable watches in Kiev, Ukraine ?

    Hi gentlemen,

    I will be soon visiting Kiev for one day. Do you know of interesting places to buy affordable watches ? Preferably from eastern brands such as Luch, Sturmanskie, Vostok but also from other brands such as Orient ?

    Best regards,

    Sébastien

    Personally I have always wanted an automatic KLEYNOD. Only Ukrainian watch brand I know. Not sure where to find one when there tho. I am guessing it will either be a boon or a bust price wise. Many folks looking to buy on overseas trips seem to be told to save their money and purchase in the USA. Extra taxes, import duties, lack of a gray market to drive prices down, etc. I'd try to look for something unique while there.

    I found the Kleynod while browsing the web, personally I am not really fond of their mens models (I tend to like simpler militarish designs). Their lady models are pretty nice though :)

    Silence is deafening eh?

    Unfortunately Ukraine has much the same status as some South American countries and India for Franken and fake and they have made a specialty of weird pocket watch conversions.

    Good luck on your trip and who knows you may find some real gems but beware.

    Regards
