Unicorns will fly out of my orifice before I spend over six hundred quid on a watch but that aside, it looks a nice watch but it would bother me that there is no '3' marked. Looks out of kilter to my eye.

And the silly comments have started!

these are superb quality watches. ..heat from me

Cracking price for this watch. Some question marks over the movement reliability but on price alone this is hot.

OP - unfortunately higher end watches don't tend to do very well on HUKD, though I think you expected that. Good luck!

I do have watches in this price range .Id like to give heat for the price drop but cant bring myself to do it as it looks naff & not worth a few hundred let alone this price.

Nice to know some people know value when they see it! Seems a £360 saving on a quality time piece is lost on some!

Yeah I know dude, have posted high end watches before with mixed results but if someone wants one and they have saved a wedge then it's worth the cold votes and chav comments, I've had an Oris Artellier for 3 years now and never had an issue with it.

Good saving so heat from me. However the diving style watches are a better option in my opinion.
#11
Better watches to be had for significantly less money. But a good price for the model if its your cup of tea.
#12
Oris watches are very good but if you want decent Swiss made watch with reasonable price go for Romer

Very nice,but regret will soon set in once you try an Omega on your wrist.

Why is 3 missing on the dial?

Good deal, unfortunately it looks like yet another deal voted cold because people don't understand the point of this site, that it's not their personal opinion about whether this watch is worth the money but that this is the cheapest available price and the poster is bringing this to people's attention. Thank OP, heat added

Carry yourself with a bit of class and others will respond in kind. I hope the irony isn't lost on you but I suspect it is. Your deal is ice cold anyway so I guess you proved what a smart, cultured boy you are, utterly wasted on us Casio wearing mortals LOL!
#20
Great, a watch with numbers missing for the price of... A LOT OF STUFF!
#21
Voted hot on general f-ing principle. Also it's not a bloody noddy watch maybe that's why some people can't handle the face design.
#22
I'm sure it's a top quality movement and a good quality watch. It just looks pants.
#23
beautiful watch and very good price, heat added.

If you want a Swiss watch see if you can buy a real Rolex - they make the best watches in terms of quality.

The majority of the major brands of Swiss watch makers are owned by two companies - Richemont and Swatch.

I don't disagree however you're not going to get a Rolex for this sort of money, so it's kind of a mute point really.

Heat from me as its nearly £400 off the rrp, a point which many people who use this site have forgotten, and I'm sure leads to other users not bothering to post deals due to the churlish comments they'll attract !

For anyone wanting to search it's 'Roamer' - sorry op not correcting just trying to help. They are good watches with a company that has history but there is some question over where they are built - some parts in China, however that's not to say they're not of good quality.

Cold, it's not a £2.99 Ronald McDonald watch that holds the time perfectly well for when i'm driving around in my £600 banger that costs me £1500 a year in repairs and £800 a year more in accounting for it's poor fuel economy.

Living the dream!

But seriously, i'm looking to get an Omega later in the year when I go to America - HUKD should be for all to save money no matter what they're buying, not just for those living the baked beans on toast lifestyle. A few Tags were semi-tempting, but i've heard many poor reports over their recent build quality. I have my great Grandad's gold Omega, given to him upon retirement from Tioxide, and it's still going strong, despite being 48 years old.

However the guys that keep saying this is hot because it's got 400 off are missing a huge point. The discount alone, doesn't necessarily make something a deal. Take Amazon for example with their over inflated RRP to give the perception of huge savings when in fact the item is at a normal price.
In my opinion £669 is a good price for a good watch. The movement in this may be exceptional but the face design makes it look like something from accessorize or Argos. I'll hold onto my money until something that looks good as well as having reliability comes along.

Thanks.

Totally agree - but this isn't an over inflated Amazon rrp, it's the price at most other places.

The Amazon thing was an example for this site in general, not about the watch.

Loudmouth I am planning to go to LA next year. Whereabouts would you recommend buying an omega from? Is there much of a price difference?
#33
Mid/high end watches rarely see high discounts you will never see half price Oris, Omega's ect making this a good deal. Its worth noting that although these movements can run a lifetime untouched it is recommended that they are serviced roughly every five years, which can be costly.

Totally disagree, you're missing the point, if this is £400 cheaper than normal and cannot be found cheaper elsewhere then it is a good deal regardless of whether you agree with the rrp. It's only not a bargain if you can get it elsewhere for cheaper.

There are a few internet dealers that sell the real deal, they'll post to your hotel while in the US - if you get the watches sent here, you'll cop for a hell of a lot of duty/tax. Try Jomashop.com or authenticwatches.com in US (from what i've seen of my research) .

If you buy from an official dealer in the US you'll save next to nowt, the high end watch companies effectively operate a cartel through their authorised dealers (they even stopped Costco selling Omegas with an injunction). Downfall with buying from a non-authorised dealer is that in some cases you will have to get them to deal with any warranty issues rather than any authorised dealer (and that means sending the watch back to the US).

Exactly - should we be voting cold on everything we have no interest in buying, no matter the saving? Or should we be voting something hot because it cannot be knowiingly bought cheaper elsewhere?

Retailers making up their own RRP and then dropping massively for a 'great deal' is soooo wrong!
If they're making a decent profit at £600 (which I'm sure they are) how can they justify £1k+ originally!
Retailers are rip off merchants and you 'bean on toast' bashers perpetuate this greedy, money grabbing, practice by forking out time after time (no pun intended).
Buy a Casio for £20 and give £600 to charity!

Think I'll stick to my Oris divers, rather than a Roamer! Still, maybe the looks are an acquired taste for this one, but it is still an excellent price.

An automatic Omega will be in excess of £2,000 though - not £669.50!

Different products require different mark-ups. Expensive watches require a big mark-up because people don't buy one at the drop of a hat, without volume sales they require a good rate of return on everything they sell. A tin of beans requires much less mark-up. Us "beans on toast" bashers do so because some people here think that wanting to find a better price on something that isn't a bare essential is something to be sneered at, whether it be a new car, a nice watch, or a quality item. Time and time again I see massive heat for huge TVs that have abysmal picture quality, people taken in by the sheer size, but paying no heed to poor refresh rates, poor picture processing and poor upscaling etc. Quality over quantity for me.

If i'm prepared to save hard for a nice watch, built to last and that I will treasure and look after rather than buying a Casio every other year then why not? When I aim to do so, it will be hopefully for the best price because of sites like HUKD helping out all people wanting to buy whatever they want at the best possible price, whether that be a bar of chocolate or a £50k car.
