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.


Oh you great big ill informed plonker, a vauxhall vectra is a saab, the same
way a jaguar is a mondeo and skoda a golf. All the same, just a different
badge, many more examples about -
mazda 121 = fiesta, mazda 323 = focus.

Yay! We've not had the old "My car's better than your car"
and that car is just a re-branded tampax/weetabix/bog roll
discussion for ages!

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.


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 -

fail to see why you need such an expensive watch
buy a 20 one and give the rest to charity
its just a watch ffs


Then why reply? What business is it of yours what he chooses to spend his
hard earned on? One assumes you've never bought any pointless luxuries,
because then you'd just be been a hypocrit...

already told you what I think of your response...and am not going to waste
anymore time reading or replying to your message. You are ignored.

Well, no conversation is complete without an unwanted/useless response

Here's another couple of words that spring to mind from your posts -
'poor' and 'jealous'.

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.

What a load of nonsense, just because they are owned by the same parent
company, does not mean they are of the same quality, let alone "the same"

There's some very strange people in this group - it makes me laugh.

OP wants a decent watch. We are not here, as a group, to ask his/her
motives, just help out if we know where OP can get said watch for a few quid
cheaper.

If you want a debate on the decadence of UK people, this doesn't really seem
to be the forum.

Was that actually meant to be a joke ?


Nope - from my own experience, and the experience of quite a few friends who
deal with broken down cars on a ragular basis, Saab`s are vastly more
reliable that Vauxhalls (along with most other "cheaper" cars). I drive a
Vauxhall myself which is fairly reliable, but Saabs and other similar
quality cars simply do not break down anywhere near as often as the cheaper,
more popular makes.
