    Ready To Purchase Omega Seamaster-Who To Buy From?

    I'm newto the upper end watch market. I've done a ton of research and have settled on the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean - 2201.51.00. Love this watch. Anyway, I need advice on where to buy. I found it at authenticwatches.com for $2995. I've read many posts on grey market vs. AD and am leaning toward an AD. My question is can I find an AD on this forum that will sell me the watch for $3,000.00 shipped and w/o tax. Thanks for any help.

    I doubt that anyone here would know for certain whether an authorized dealer on this forum would be willing to sell that watch for $3,000.00 A better idea would be for you to contact the sponsoring dealers for this forum. Also, you should contact local authorized dealers in your area for comparative prices. Be sure to go beyond just asking for the best deal and strike up a conversation first.

    Realize that the authentic watches price excludes the cost of a warranty so it may be difficult for an authorized dealer to offer a warranted watch for that price. I would expect something around 30% discount.

    It appears that you want your cake and eat it too.

    You want the grey market pricing but from an AD with warranty AND do not charge you tax as well.

    Now, I am not saying that ISN'T possible.

    Why don't you take the pricing to your local AD and see how close they can come to your pricing.

    Also, you can try the forum AD and see what he says.

    Yea, I don't see why anyone wouldn't want the cake and to enjoy eating it too. I hear you and appreciate the advice. I will locate a local AD and strike up a conversation with him concerning Omegas.

    Try the Omega sub-forum. I believe the forum AD offers great deals, check out the posts in the past, and PM some of the guys who have purchased from the AD.
