Is it usually okay to present items bought abroad with the absence of the original box when brought to GST refund report desk in the airport? I'll be wearing/using it instead. Especially for Jersey Airport, thinking on purchasing a phone and a watch.

Any of the old firm looking to shift a Seamaster diver - SHOM 200m, 120m baby / mini ploprof et al. Fancy myself one of those now they're less internet hype.

Baby FTW - great looking Watch - Dee is your man for this, otherwise you'll end up buying a Frankenstein watch

@Trent : I have a brand new Ploprof available if your wrist is big enough.

search "zulu strap" and you'll find loads
Find them to be really awkward in person though, much prefer a nato

The purpose of the Rolex submariner when issued to SBS divers because it was the toughest and most reliable watch the RN could find is also hard to deny, to me.

quick price question - what should i be looking to pay for a late 60s GMT? no box/papers but recently serviced by Rolex. a bit beat up, but looking good on it with original face/bezel etc.

nope - its in a jewellers in the town where i live. bit of an unexpected find, need to give it a proper look over and check the caseback, serial number, etc. looks legit from comparison to pics i've found online and the fade on the dial though.

Would definately stand the test of time(in terms of looks) over the two.
