Re: OT: Best Place To Buy Womens Prestige Watch in Australia? ( XXX 1.8T)

We bought a Baume and Mercier with diamonds for my mother for her 60th.
Classic elegance. Bought it from Levendi on the city - cash is king.

As above. depends on the watch.
but travelling most of europe and asia i noticed that the cheapest was in Singapore.
Was able to bargain heavily as well as claim tax.

It would be liable for GST on the way back in to Aus.
Might be safest if said carrier wore it himself instead of keeping it in his luggage. Something with pink diamonds would probably suit.

"Prestigest Watch shop in Australia?"
In Melbourne it would probably be The Hourglass in Collins St

Re: OT: Best Place To Buy Womens Prestige Watch in Australia? (Super 180s)

The dilemma i have is that all the watch brands making boring looking watches yet the designer watches look good but only have quartz movement (Chanel told me their 38mm watches are ETA movement which i was suprised)
Is there a "watch brand" that makes an exciting looking watch? The only ones ive seen half exciting are Rado and Omega.
The watches i know the Mrs will like are from Dior or Chanel im confused even more now

WHen you find something you really like then let me know. I know the people who own/run Hourglass. I saved Dmitry HEAPS when his friend bought this mega dollar watch (and I mean mega $) from them. The best thing to do is to buy it before you go overseas as others have suggested to save you the 10%.
And sorry, I really can't think of any modern fashionable watch for females from a real watch company! Then again I am not an expert in women's watches.

Wayne, does that extend to convincing them to get hold of a Sinn 756 Diapal for me??

I dropped into THG Melbourne in April to ask about Sinn, but a manager-type in there said only the Singapore THG stores kept Sinn stock..
