A friend of mine is on vacation in India right now. He's been wanting to buy a Tag Heuer Carrera Day-Date for a while. He found a store in India that is selling the watch for $3,300 new. The price at a local Macy's will be around $300 more.
My question is that if he is worried about a warranty, will it be better just to buy from the states? Are there any other dangers to buying in India vs. the US?
I told him that it is better to be safe and be covered with a Tag Heuer warranty by buying at Macy's and spending the extra $300 then to try and save a little bit and potentially not have that coverage. He doesn't know if the store in India is an AD, and doesn't think that they have a warranty to give. Another option is to buy from Amazon.
Amazon Price: $3,349
India Price: $3,300
Macy's Price: $3,600
You guys have way more experience than I do, so I wanted your opinions.
