Hmm.... For me, I'd gladly purchase from parallel importers if I know any of them personally. I got to know the boss of Watch Arena indirectly from a friend's friend blah blah blah... though I do not get better prices, at least I get assurrance from him that I'm buying a brand new piece from hk, japan or whatever country he gets his stock from. Warranty is sometimes better than local ADs.... they're generally blank, and u can fill in your name, address and make it yours. of course, if u're wearing a 'Y' series Sub, it's pretty unlikely that the warranty will be acknowledged if your warranty card is dated today in 2007.

Put it this way... if u're afraid of buying a fake or unreliable piece from them, they're more than ten times afraid that they will be sued (maybe by Rolex?) if they sell u fakes. They've got more to lose definitely.

Pricewise, they're definitely cheaper than elsewhere. So take your time to make a choice between Parallel imports, Pre-owned or ADs.
wonder how come they want export the watches out and sell at lower price? over there no demand

well....one reason could be......e.g.

A needs money....... A approaches uncle L to borrow money......uncle L says ok.....bring him to watch store.......ask him buy watch with credit card.......then uncle L pays A cash for the watch at way below market value......A gets his urgently needed cash and uncle L exports the watches........uncle L is clean n no need to worry about police....

6.3k for gmt 2 is a reasonably good price considering the list price is 7444...

Just checking... anyone knows how much is the serrvicing of a normal submariner? (non-date version) Maybe its being mentioned in this thread but 177 pages is a bit hard to digest.
Anyone?
