:bigeyes:

I'll save up for that... then again, I'd probably spend my $$$ on a medium format camera with digital back and still have cash to buy 2 Mazda RX8.

I'm looking for Seiko Automatic watches....
basically looking for a place where there is a congregation of watch shops... something like camera shops can be found in Penin area, IT stuff can be found in Funan/Sim Lim, etc...

Yes Bencoolen street Seiko and Casio. Bargain abit and sometimes can get good price. Bras Basah is too pricy if you are not aware of the pricing.
Better to go to Tong Sia building and see all the Seiko watches and price before you go anywhere else to bargain and buy. Seiko prices are reasonable.
The other place you can go is Mustafa, Seiko, Citizen and Casio.

Unless you want Breguet, PP, VC, and all the others in the price mentioned by Adrian do let me know I will introduce you to the appropriate person who will than attend to you individually. :bigeyes:

If you have that amount to spare I am sure many watch company will want to meet up with you. Normally this kind of watch comes with some discount but still it will be in the 5-6 figure range. I believe the watch you mentioned is not just a chronograph, it is a Tourbillion as well.

Oh yes not only 10 course but at exquisite restaurant as well.
You will get to meet the watch maker specially flown in to explain the workings of the watch and the maintenance it requires :bsmilie:

Not sure abt how u guys feel, but I personally like 25 Hours for their simple design and service.

My watch strap broke off recently after the supposed '1yr warranty' (my watch is 4yrs old), went to have it repaired and the nice lady did it up for me for free! Same thing when the battery in my watch went outta juice and the nice lady got it replaced for free... :D

My next watch is DEFINITELY a 25 Hours watch. :)
