    Grey Market dealers in Europe?

    Hello everyone.

    The title says it all. I can´t seem to find grey market dealers located in Europe!

    To order from a grey dealer in the US and then pay customs.... I might as well go straight to an AD, even though AD's here take 15% off at best.

    Probably the Euro is too strong for a grey dealer from Europe to compensate the risk, but I'd like to take a peek anyway....

    I wish it was like that...

    From my experience and fellow watch lovers around here, 15% is as far as it goes on small AD's. And the biggest (in number of stores and brands) AD here gives me 10%. At best, 10% off and the possibility to pay in 12/18 months with no interest.

    Maybe because I´m not a regular costumer, since I started this "hobby" recently. I don´t know.

    This is the case in watches around 2000-3500 Euro. More than that I can´t tell because I never inquired...

    Look into Chrono24 - Luxury watches | buy watches | sell a pre-owned watch, lots of grey market dealers. Compare the prices and check their guarantee policy and you are in the know.

    Yes, I knew Chrono24, but thanks anyway.

    Weird thing about Chrono24 are the prices. Lots of pre-owned watches that seem to me a bit over priced...

    Well, now I am confused.

    If you already knew the portal chrono24.com you must know Häffner, CarreraBayern, Miquel and all the other dealers as well

    Ok, my mistake! Sorry

    I never realized that Chrono also had grey dealers. I always thought it was always pre-owned watches, from private sellers or watch shops.
