Willing to buy online from overseas sellers?

You may want to check some of the Japanese websites.

If bo bian make more sense to buy online den buy online. This kind of big purchase (for me) i can be quite hesitant without a physical shop. But 1k plus difference is no joke.
Any reputable online dealers than?
Or if there are any local dealers that might have, even if slightly more exp.

Caught sight of this video on FB and watched it after work.

I think it's impossible to have no flaws, even luxury brands have issues, but quite shocking. In summary, to save you a 30 min watch:

1) When the guy pulled the crown the entire dial moved, which definitely shouldn't be the case with the correct fit and things in place (e.g. spacer).

2) Caseback printed 21,800 bph when the NH35 movement inside is 21,600 bph.

3) Upon opening up, the spacer was observed to be plastic and "odd", and out of place for the price range - and it was floating above the Seiko spacer. The postulation is that the plastic spacer is bent and pressed into the Seiko spacer to prevent the entire assembly from moving around freely, which sounds pretty ridiculous.
