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.
    I buy watches from them for the pass 20 over years. Timex, G shock, Seiko, Casio, luminox, Skagen, Sunnto ... If they sell Rolex too I confirm buy from them Brother is Jack I always look for him for best best price.

    Cortina, Sincere and Hourglass.

    Never buy Rolex and Pams from grey market forum/online sellers. Extreme high risk as they might sell you high grade fakes and then disappear - fly by night scammers. Pawn shop client told me some fake Rolex and pans are so good that even they sometimes also mis judgement. Lost is covered by insurance but their premium get raised highly.

    By IWC at Changi Airport if you want them brand new. Usually max discount given by dealers on top of that you can get another 7% from the gst.

    I'm searching for a Rolex Deepsea at a decent discount..... however Rolex here have a STUPID price fixing policy / discount policy of max 5% discount ? ( similar to Leica here ).

    ( FYI - Wholesalers of Singapore..... Grow up, this is called Price Fixing and in Australia this is illegal and punishable in court with fines EXCEEDING $500,000 !!! )
    See my WTS items.. :) Any sales is by meet up face to face, payment is cash only.

    if Rolex is the manufacturer and this is their company law to ensure no one sells below SRP, it's not price fixing.

    but if a group of wholesalers conspire together to fix the price whereby it benefits one or all (themselves), that is price fixing.

    You are very right..... I think Im searching for a diff term. ( but in AUST a wholesaler can't force a dealer to maintain one price nor discount level, it's the choice of the dealer.... that said a wholesaler (w/s) CAN make it difficult for a dealer to deal with them by restricting access to product, that said in Aust it's hard to cancel distribution once its granted to an agent - as the agent can take the w/s to court. )

    So can you get me a fat discount on my Deepsea

    Here is the normal practice when we buy from individual/online sellers. Agree the price and meet at Rolex Service Center, buyer pay $100 for authentication fees. Once it is authenticated as genuine Rolex watches with no missing /fake parts, buyer and seller get the deal done.

    That's the usual deal.. But some buyers are quite easy...I sold a submariner and an omega without buyer asking for verification ..lol.

    But I myself still buy new from boutique or overseas.. unless it's a lower cost casual piece, then I buy from forums

    I bought a couple of watches in Hour Glass Millenium walk and have been quite regular there. Normally they will offer anything from 15 to 25% discount depending on the brand. My preference is for IWC more a watch makers' watch. If you travels to Hong Kong, then try Prince watches & Jewellery at Causeway Bay, good price and no GST. Cheers
