    normally if you are feeling rich, the boutiques are a great place as most of them have exclusives but no or little discounts, ADs of watch retailers are your best bet, Mustafa also has the "best" prices.

    What kind of time are you buying?

    Thanks for the enthusiastic replies.

    I'm looking at either IWC or Corum at the moment.

    I just want the best prices.

    China got the best price. Lol.

    Maybe can try hour glass? They give discount when I bought a watch there.

    Bought my bf's watches at Bras Basah, the shop next to the UOB atm, think their name is Prestige. Very good prices and watches are in very good conditions as well.

    The owner of Prestige is a lady and the shop opposite hers at the back is her brother's. So if she cannot find the specific range you are looking for, she will recommend to her brother. If you're looking for Seiko, her brother has quite a good range. And both will ask the same thing: What is your budget? Normally the price difference between retails like Isetan, BHG etc and the shop there could be as much as $150. But compared to Mustafa, maybe 10-20 bux more expensive. However, I do not trust Mustafa's handling of goods as the watches I saw there, when inspected, have scratches and they will claim that that model is the last one they got. =_=""

    I've recommended Prestige to many friends. All have replied with nothing but good reviews for the shop.

    Try seeing around also at peninsula or bras basah. So far these shops can slash prices from 900 to 700 or 600++ anytime. If BHG best price, then buy at BHG lor.

    Cash is your best friend, head to millennia walk to THG, you get the best prices, otherwise grey dealers or 2nd hand at the watch forums is your next best friend.

    Passions

    Watch Arena

    Visiotime

    Singapore Watch Exchange

    are just some of the sites to help your search, most of CS do not really collect mechanical expensive watches so its best to talk to someone in a watch forum. Sorry i can't help much but this is a little i know.

    usually at places like hourglass or sincere and the rest, its 30% at least of the labelled price. more would depend on your relationship with the shop.

    even citychain kind of shop also discounted

    My personal opinion, go get the IWC. I have been collecting watches for some time. Go get watches from watch makers not designer watches. Lots of designer watches does not make their own movements. I recommend Hour Glass at Millennium walk, ask for Jimmy. Got a better offer at Hour Glass for my Jaeger LeCoultre than the offer Sincere gave. Alternatively, buy watches in Hong Kong because there is no GST. In Hong Kong buy from Prince Watch and Jewelers at Causeway Bay, bought the IWC Portuguese and a Breguet Marine there. Good luck.
