I enjoy looking for deals, I totally get the retail experience and I think it's worth paying for but I also enjoy finding the best price for something and then trying to better it. I'm not trying to live as cheaply as I can and nick a few bob here and there but if I can save 10% on a four grand watch and I can afford the watch at least I have the option to choose between the retail exprience and an internet buy-or even trying to negotiate the internet price in the shop.

With regard to your comment "Yes I own a Calibre 5 but it took me 5 years of humming and arring and been in a position to purchase it", I totally get that and I also get that you'll appreciate it and enjoy it more then some people on here who take great delight in getting a car wash mitt reduced from £2 to £1 in B&M.

There's nothing wrong with enjoying a deal, I'll be honest, I always vote up aspirational watch deals just to tick off the mouth breathers who can't see beyond a 50% price cut at B&M but think anybody with a few bob more than them to spend on a watch or a car is an idiot with more money than sense.

This site is not about living as frugally as you can, it's about living as well as you can without paying more than the going rate. All IMHO.

Good luck.
Usually, when I have a spare 3-4 grand I stick it in an ISA for my kids' future. I wonder what sort of chancers and wideboys spend so much in watches. Then I realized, it will probably be my kids when they are at uni.

Great price, anyone has experience with this retailer?
I have never heard of them and I’m a pretty keen watch collector.

what it looks like is they go and buy the watch from an AD and sell you for more that they bought it for, so likely legit but not any discounts that couldn’t be achieved by talking to an AD yourself
Their trading address is about 5 mins away from me so if you want to send me the money i can go round and check the watch out

I agree. For a site selling luxury watches it doesn’t really look the part does it? The delivery timing isn’t the best either. This is only a 10% discount on RRP which you should be able to negotiate with an AD when the stores reopen
There's also one at the watch philosophy in London have good rating on chrono24 and £3, 370

Website by Demon Cheese... Not exactly a professional looking website.
Iv seen this name advertised on Stuart Bingham's waistcoat in the snooker...
I bought a Omega FOIS from here years ago. Excellent price and good communication throughout. Also the FOIS is the only speedmaster worth getting btw.

They’re reputable and serve the market of people of either can’t or aren’t willing to haggle with an AD. Guaranteed ~10% discount is better than paying RRP. Also reasonably popular with forces people working overseas as they ship to BFPO tax free.
The price inflation on this particular model is quite something. I bought mine brand new in 2013 from an AD and the RRP was £2,800. Got it knocked down to £2,400 without even trying too hard.

It’s a lovely watch and certainly a classic but I don’t think I’d pay this price for it. The novelty of the manual wind wore off pretty quickly for me!

I wonder how much they’ll appreciate being called chancers and wide boys.
Is it ok to not have a car, to not buy clothes, to skimp and save at every opportunity when in supermarkets, not drink take-away coffee, etc etc and buy a £4k watch? Or do people still get excited and tell you what to not spend your money on?

Yes please,if anyones feeling generous.
I got mine for £1550 ten years ago. £4k aint worth it for that, the movement is agricultural.
I also got a submariner for £3k, a IWC portugeiser for £4k and a few omegas for £1-2k. When I see the prices these days I am horrified.
My favourite watch is the Zenith El primero 1969 new vintage. Underrated watchs for the price, and the movement amazing for the price.

I agree with you. It’s the matter of our Priorities and financial background. The value of hard earned money in 1st generation is always quite different.

Yet so many people out of work can afford 40 cigs a day and drink all the time.
If Omega made a moonwatch you could swim with and also self wound I would be sold.

You’re assuming that those looking for watch deals are looking for other things. Why couldn’t they just be here for watch deals?(confused)

It’s a deals website? What is wrong with posting a watch deal? There are watch enthusiasts from all backgrounds, yes they’re expensive but that doesn’t stop people from wanting one and possibly hunting down the best deal for one. Maybe the reason people on here can afford to buy luxury things is because they are savvy with their money and look to save it in other areas so they can afford the nicer things in life? I see numerous posts for cars on this website that run into the 10s of thousands but posts about watches shock you? People spend money on MacBooks that run almost £2000 which are often posted on here. Wether it’s a deal for a cheap tin of beans or a deal for a £5k watch, if someone sees it and it helps them is it not worthwhile?

Heat aswell OP, very nice

At the moment for a kids investment a Rolex GMT cost £7999 new... a second hand one is worth £12500+ less than a year.. how much does ISA make in less than a year?
I paid £60 for mine in 1969 being the actual model that traveled. Wore it for many years till the weight got too much and the bracelet is dreadful. My last official service cost £480 but that is not an annual cost.
It has gone up considerably in value through fifty years.A Rolex submariner from this time costing twice the amount would have been a far better option.
It will be a long wait before you can resell this new one for a profit.

Very unlikely to make profit on modern Omega watches. More likely a loss.

Exactly my point. I'm no millionaire but I have worked extremely hard to afford a couple nice watches and luxury cars. I love searching and finding the best deals I can for quality products.
When I paid £1550 for mine I thought it was too much, and still think it was too much. I would dread to think what the buyers think now at £3.6k

True, investing and gambling both involve risk and choice—specifically, the risk of capital with hopes of future profit. But gambling is typically a short-lived activity, while equities investing can last a lifetime. Also, there is a negative expected return to gamblers, on average and over the long run

One of the key differences between investing and gambling is diversification. Investing provides you with the opportunity to spread your risk across all asset classes, whereas gamblers throw their capital into a single pot with no loss mitigation strategy.
