I like watches. I am not a collector, and by no means am I an expert. I came to this forum because I wanted opinions on a watch I was planning to buy, and I received excellent advice for which I am thankful.
Among the advise I received were leads on where to find the watch I intend to buy at a cheaper price. I had never heard of gray market watches before, so I did some research. I am not sure what to think. Nevertheless, after reading the article below I wonder why a watch aficionado would risk buying a gray market watch, especially if the purchase is a high end watch? I get the discount thing, but are the potential risks and the alleged loss of prestige worth it?
