    Paying Retail for a Watch

    I am considering purchasing a now-discontinued model of a watch from my local AD, but the store owner is not budging on the price since the watch is no longer made, is limited edition, and is his last one. I have always had a strict policy regarding paying full price for a watch, but I am starting to cave on this one as it is the last one in this area.

    Anyone here pay full price for higher-end watches that exist in limited numbers? Any advice on getting my AD to budge on the price? Should I just walk away and let someone else pay full price for it?

    I paid premium retail (The AD price was higher than other AD's in other countries) for my Grand Seiko, cause its "limited" and the AD got only 3 allocation for the whole country (we have only 1 GS AD).

    Was it worth it? To me yes, cause it was exactly what I wanted.

    I could have gotten it cheaper from another AD in another country if I waited, but said why go through the hassle and just got it.
    In order I have obtained
    > Seiko Chronograph SNA013P The Great Blue l Chopard Mille Miglia GTXL Rosso Corsa l Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue Monte Carlo
    Seiko 5 SNXF01K1 Silver Fox l Seiko 5 - SNKP21J1 Middle East Edition l Longines Heritage 180th Anniversary Chrono
    Omega - Speedmaster Pro Project Alaska l G-Shock - G-9000MX-8 Mudman l Seiko Prospex SRPB51J1 Samurai
    Grand Seiko SBGJ227 Peacock l G-Shock GMWB5000GD-9

    My Reviews: Eulit Perlon Strap / Tudor Rubber Strap - Vanguard
