Hi all. Hope to get some advice on buying new omega watches from shops like finesttime, chuan watch, etc.

For brand new piece they list it as having warranty and many times they say current dated. Is this warranty with Omega itself or their own in-house warranty? Prices are usually 1k-2k cheaper than AD so I'm pretty confused.

Should be Omega warranty. Current dated means the last few months.

In any case, which omega are you looking at -- and have you asked ADs for discount yet?

I tried the 41mm, abit too big for me, my wrist 15cm only

38mm is a older movement if in not wrong???
I think same generation of movement, just that it has one (?) mainspring barrel? The 41mm version has two for a slightly longer power reserve.

buy from AD = PR abit, start your journey and if first time buying then get to experience buying from the AD.

buy from grey, cut the wayang and save the extra money. if its just a one time off purchase then can consider just getting from grey, if still wanna continue buying then consider getting from AD.
