Anyone got an account for https://uhrforum.de/ ?

Trying to buy a watch from there but I can't sign up as they only accept new members from Germany/Austria at the moment… Fascist!

Would appreciate some help getting in touch with the guy or using someones account. Cheers.

Never really owned a watch or any jewellery of any kind but really fancy a Seamaster, what's the best route to getting one with some discount or is it just full RRP wherever you go?

They are not authorized dealers but have stock bought direct from authorized dealers and from private individuals.

In the UK, try Blowers, WatcherTrader UK, WatchTimes UK, Edinburg Watch Company etc. All genuine stock. Try negotiate on price. For a seamaster I’d go used, Omega depreciates quite heavily once you walk out of the shop, even with a 15-20% discount off retail.

I got best part of £400 off my speedmaster from goldsmiths by just haggling a bit and paying cash.

They had recently just gone up in price though so I just played on that a bit, still ended up paying a touch more than I would’ve done if I was ready to buy a few months earlier though..

Depends how much money off you’re expecting I guess but it can’t hurt to go in and ask.

"A grey market watch dealer is a store (online or brick and mortar) that sells luxury watches for significantly less(depends on the watch) than a brand’s authorized dealer or boutique."

it's basically a non AD for Rolex, Omega etc.

check Chrono24 for instance -> https://www.chrono24.de/search/index.htm?availability=Immediately&condition;=101&countryIds;=UK&dosearch;=true&manufacturerIds;=187&maxAgeInDays;=0⊧=66&pageSize;=60&priceFrom;=0&priceTo;=-1&redirectToSearchIndex;=true&sortorder;=0&specials;=103&specials;=102&usedOrNew;=new

I'm interested in selling my Seamaster. From 2014. All original papers, box, certificates etc.

Not entirely sure what the resell value is but feel free to PM if interested.

Great watch, but I was under the impression the ‘Automatic’ text should be in the middle of the row of squares.

Might just be the case in all the press images though.
