Default What's the best place to buy a wrist watch?

I have finally decided to treat myself to a nice watch :-) After lots of
window shopping I decided to buy Rado Ceramica wrist watch. Watches from
this collection are ranging from 850 to 950 in the high street.

My question is, are there any shops (online or offline), that specialise in
watches, and offer good value?

Don't have much experience buying watches. So, any help that you could
provide in getting a good deal on this watch will be much appreciated.

Regards
Vyas

I bought an expensive watch from Goldsmiths (at a retail outlet) a few years
ago and they were happy to give me a 10 per cent discount (I had to ask for
it). You could also look at an Amazon affiliate -

Why? Why give any money to charity just because they can afford to splah
almost a grand on a watch? Why bother spending 100k on a car when a 3.50
Daewoo will get you from A to B? Perhaps they want a quality watch, the
same as someone who buys an Aston wants a quality car. Perhaps they want
something that is almost perfectly reliable, like a Saab, instead of a
Vauxhall.

I`m guessing that the only reason you felt the need to jump in is utter
jealousy that someone has the money to afford that much for a watch.

Was that actually meant to be a joke ?


It does show the dangers of arguing by analogy.

At last! A genuine bargain!

Care to post a source for these Daewoos?

(PS: why so indignant about someone else's indignation?)
