New to the watch forum , but been following it for a while. I wanted to post and get some feed back on the Doxa forum to get idea of what the doxaholics this about swiss watch pricing in general.
I have been reading on other watch forums and I have read both sides of the story. Some say its over price and some say you pay for what you get. I recently place my order for a SR t-graph at the sale price. Which in my mind is a steal for what other watch company are charging or it might be the AD over charging for the watch. I don't really know, It maybe where I live in Canada.
To give the forum members an idea what I have come up against, with out any type bargining just asking the price of a watch this is what I have seen.
Omega SMP Chrono 2225.80.00 $4200
Omega PO Chrono 2210.51.00 $7000
Breitling SO Chrono SS $6000
Oris Diver Titan Chrono $2800
Rado Original Chrono $4700
Plus a bunch of other brands of watches from Tag, Chopard, Ebel and so forth. All were quite more expensive. I know some had to do with it been chronometer ceritfied and some using some extensive and expensive movements whether it beening and ETA or Valjox movemet and so on. But in my mind..(ask the wife, I have been looking for quite a few years) as much as it is alot of money for a watch (to the average joe, I know there are some with an extensive watch collection that this would a drop in a hat for them. but for me it has been a long time saving for this watch and some.) I would like to think it was a great deal.
I would love some feedback from the forum members, because I know that Doxa at times have been an unappreciate watch for some times unless you are a watch nut like me or a serious watch collector.
I hope I am not out of context on this posting. If I am I apoligize in advance. Thanks
