So I am looking to get into an Oris Aquis date, 43mm case, the grey face with orange accents, steel bracelet. My local AD has one in the store, and they have had it for over a year, so she immediately came out and said that would do better on the price (starting out $1999) and came down to $1750. The grey market on this watch is $1100, so I am just unsure of what would be a good price on this watch. This will be my first higher end watch, so I am new to the buying experience, and any advice would be appreciated.
The other watch I am looking at is the Tag Formula 1 Calibre 5. Similar grey market, and the AD came down to $1500 right away, but its at an inferior AD to the Oris dealer. I am leaning towards the Oris, but the higher price has me concerned as its much further off the grey market.
Any thoughts? Or should I pull the trigger grey market? I think there is value in a relationship with the Oris AD, but not $650 worth.
