    It is controlled discount & Rolex appoints retailers through vigorous selection, they don't have wholesalers in our region. If retailers are caught by mystery buyers for giving excessive discount, the retailer will be punished still, there are always things that go through the net

    You'll be surprised how powerful they are in the world of luxury products with a huge panel of solicitors to choose from. The only chance for you to save some money is to buy from a country where their currency suddenly de-values but you'd need to be quick before the prices are adjusted for "losses". It is an honour to be appointed as a Rolex dealer, an iron-rice bowl for the retailer and I doubt anyone would mess with Rolex, not even THG.

    i was once even an easy buyer, i bought one over ebay and shipped it back. no problem.
    just that once has to be mindful to shop smart, to know whether it is a genuine deal/watches.

    I think the prices in town hard to beat Prestige at Bras Bersa complex.

    I have a Seiko and Casio G Shock and am also considering a watch now. Did very minimal research and decided on Oris but have not view any model or know where to get yet. But now decided that I don't really need a watch... I rather buy D800 or D800E or D3s or D4.

    for cheaper watches like Seiko , Citizen or Casio there are a couple of reputable ebay sellers based in Singapore (eg pokemonyu or premierworld )
