    Hi Formula1bp.

    My suggestion is to contact watchbuys and ask them. Always best to get it from the horses mouth.

    You might also consider buying a used model instead of new. With the sub steel and tegimented bezel even used models will look like new. I have worn mine for 2-3 months now and it has no scratches on the case. Other watches I have bought are lucky to escape the first week unscathed. Also you can now buy the rubber portion of the band individually for $60 so it's less of a hassle if the original owner already sized it. Good luck its a great watch!

    My understanding of the tax saystem in the US is that it varies from state to state, and if you are located in the same state as watchbuys, a higher rate of tax may apply.

    The other thing to consider is that U-series watch orders are usually waitlisted ... it's not like Watchbuys (or anyone) is sitting on stacks and stacks of U-series watches waiting for buyer. That fact should also give an indication as to your leeway in negotiating a discount.
    Cheers,

    Martin is right.

    Kindly note that demand is much greater than supply (owing to various reasons), your negotiating leeway in terms of price is extremely limited.

    My guess is that extends to pre-owned U series watches if you can find one. But at least in the pre-owned market, one can try to negotiate though no gaurantee of success because the seller can always maximise benefit by selling to the highest bidder.

    Probably zero due to low supply. The used ones I have seen were going for close to ne

    prices. Used doesn't mean much due to the hard case, bezel and crystal. That is how i got mine and saved 3 months on the waiting list

    If you have a look at ebay.de (German Ebay) you will find a lot of second hands and sellers willing to ship to the USA. Prices will be around 800 - 950 USD on rubber strap plus shipping.
    It helps if you can speak or write German to get the bargain, but a lot of buyers will speak and advertise in English. If your watch is under 1K you will not have to pay import tax to the US.
