    Of current ones, all of them. If its expensive, it always comes from an AD unless its used.
    EDIT: I just realized that I found one of them online but bought it in person.

    I'm a big fan of the WUS Sales Forum. Don't know if I'll buy in a store again.

    My Steelfish was from an out of state AD, but I got the info from a forum member. The Seiko Samurai and Sumo, Chase-Durer Conquest, and RXW watches all online. Several cheapies online as well. The only face to face dealer watch was several Movado's.
    I've had only one bad deal online, it was not a lot of money and I consider it a lesson learned.
    I'd have to say about 90% of my watches were bought online.

    Good question. Thanks for your responses. I look forward to reviewing more. For a watch buying novice like me, this is invaluable.
    RJ: is your rationale for buying an expensive, new watch only from an A.D. based on the warranty issue, the authenticity issue, the A.D. support issue if there is a problem a combination of these or something else? I notice these gray market online dealers sometimes have significant discounts.

    Thanks,
