    Going to Europe - watch ideas?

    Hi Folks!

    Heading to Europe in about a month (not Switzerland, unfortunately) and am looking for a few good euo-branded watches to consider for my collection. I will be hitting Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Finland and Russia.

    Thoughts?


    thanks all!

    You might see some nice German brands. Maybe Mike S. could suggest something. Don't expect any real bargain prices though.

    i am not certain that the $ has strengthened enough vs the euro to make purchasing wise.
    just a thought.

    For the EU countries do you have you pay the VAT if you buy in person from and EU country vs online from the US?



    I don't know what the prices are like in Russia but there are plenty of Russian affordables that you could find.

    That sounds like an awesome trip! Check out Steinhart in Germany. At their pricepoint, I cannot think of a better overall value for what you get
