I’ve been looking for a sub for the last couple of weeks but may go for a GMT if the rumours are true.

Is there anywhere decent to buy in Vegas?
Going to be there over Christmas and was hoping our weak but slightly stronger currency might save me some money.

Also, having never bought anything of this price tag abroad before, can I claim the tax back at the airport?

You’ll pay duties going back in. Not worth it in my opinion, plus you haven’t a hope of finding a GMT sitting in an AD in Vegas and will pay a premium with a grey dealer.

Unfortunately, while the situation isn’t as bad as the UK there are similiar shortages in the US of the SS models.

To avoid duties don't declare it upon your return?

Or if you're really worried, package up the box and papers, post it back to the UK via EMS, and just wear the watch home.

However, as mentioned you'll most likely have trouble trying to find one in stock in the first place.

By all means you can risk not declaring it coming back in but face a fine plus duties if you get stopped. Don’t look too conspicuous is the aim of the game then!
