    Excess inventory drom Europe sold in the US as used - where?

    I watched the news on an European channel the other day. They had a report on a Gentlemen buying unsold excess inventory from Europe in the US as used. All legit.

    I suppose if I had to hazard a guess, I would think it may be a broker that is buying these watches and then selling them to Gray Market dealers in the states? Did it give any indication about warranties or anything like that? Maybe somebody here will have more information for you. Mine is a WAG at best.

    Interesting info. Guessing it happens to excess inventory from HK and Dubai too? The US market's appetite seems voracious. I would think wherever it ends up in the US, there will still be a markup so how much can you realistically save vs. the known gray market online dealers like Joma/Prestige with whom you can also negotiate. From a combined personal happiness & satisfaction-from-saving-money view, I would rather fly into Europe and buy there to take advantage of the weak Euro and the VAT refund (Germany & Italy seem best). Of course that only makes sense when you want to spend much much more than $5-$10K.

    Could be Ebay sellers or grey market sellers like Overstock, Jomashop or Ashford but I would be willing to bet the watches are being sold as new. Not used.
