Greater range in dedicated boutiques. Discount more or less similar.

Ask yourself, future purchase likely same brand or different. If different, then shops like hr glass, having your records, may give you sweeter deals next time. No guarantee though, depends what you buy


Is there discounts in shops like hourglass or cortina ? I’ve previously bought a Cartier santos from Cartier and was told there was no discount so we paid the full price. So was wondering if hourglass have discounts then I might steer to them instead. I’ve long thought that there won’t be discounts for watches from iwc, Cartier , panerai etc etc

Definitely there is. Depends on relationship and model you qant to buy as well.

Discount eats into sales exec's commission. Smart one will try to close deal, others play who blink first. There is max discount they can give.

I checked online forum, it is USA brand but china movement.
Local agent cant repair, must send to HK for repair. cost abt 200++ :(:(

Can try the Chinatown shops to see if they will touch it for you. Might be possible. Doubt Mr Goh will do anything for you.

Discount is very different between brand boutique vs generic AD

Hi I would like to ask, im thinking of buying either a iwc or Panerai watch. What’s the difference if I were to buy it in the iwc or Panerai shop itself as compared to like shops in hour glass? Really curious
Panerai boutique will throw in additional strap 1-2 depending on your negotiation skills and 1x free servicing if you have another pam watch.

Maybe a token 5% for some brand boutiques

But generally the ADs are more generous with discounts, boutiques will provide better service/experience, and certain models or LE usually sold only in boutiques

there has to be some differentiation, if not they will cannabalise each other
