    Watch Purchase - Pricing (Frankfurt)

    I am looking to complete my German watch trifecta. I currently have a Stowa and a Damasko. I hope to add a 103 St Sa to the fold.

    My question is regarding the Sinn store in central Frankfurt. Can anyone advise if there is any flexibility in the retail pricing? Also, do they provide in-store VAT refunds. Any input would be appreciated.

    I apologize if this topic has been covered previously as I am currently traveling by train from Munich > Frankfurt and I do not have the time or patience to search with my tiny iPhone on intermittent WiFi...haha.

    Well that was quick. The purchase has been made. Absolutely superb service at the Sinn store. I intended to just get it with a strap, however when I tried it on with the bracelet for the first time it looked and felt great so I ended up getting both. Absolutely love it.

    @MrCheeky

    Could you get a discount on the retail price ?

    I have the same question here, preparing a business trip to Francfort this winter, and questioning if this could be a good opportunity to come back with a new Sinn in my bag.. :))

    I will post up a more comprehensive review of my Sinn Frankfurt experience...which was fantastic. The quick answers would be that there is no flexibility on pricing other than a 2-3% discount for cash purchases. They do not provide VAT refund in store, having said that, there is a VAT refund shop about 20m away in the same square that will provide that service. An option if you do not want to deal with it at the airport.

    My German watch trifecta is now complete Sinn | Stowa | Damasko.
