    Have you noticed?

    Hi folks, i noticed recently that the price of watches dropped a lot or at least the discount is much higher than it was a couple of months ago, i am sure this is due to the recent economy crisis, i guess people don't have or don't want to spend money on timepieces/luxury non-essential items, i was browsing many websites offering a big discount on watches i've been looking at in the past few weeks and my pocket feels itchy now , the only issue is that all websites are overseas dealers (USA,EUROPE) and i feel it's a bit risky to have them shipped to Hong Kong (due to the bad economy many dealers/sellers/shippers could become dishonest). Unfortunately, here in Hong Kong the price didn't change and the discount is slightly higher (a 2 to 4% extra discount, sounds ridiculous) which doesn't appeal to me at all, how about in your country/area?

    One thing to consider when you're dealing with overseas dealers is the prices that you are seeing may fluctuate greatly depending on the change in relative values of currency. I've seen this both ways as the dollar got weaker, foreign made watches got more expensive, and vice-versa. Just one more thing to have to take into consideration when making the decision to buy a watch!
