I’ve sent and been sent loads via Special delivery - just declare the value to make sure you’re covered if any shenanigans happen.

Me too, pay the extra for special delivery by 9am and it should be well looked after! Never had an issue personally.

I love mine too, wear it in the gym and wherever worry free. The aftermarket case with no text looks cleaner imo and they're like £30.

Perhaps one day… but still not convinced I would if I could.

The Gshock looks nice. Far too big for my pathetic wrist though.

Seriously? You're suggesting buying a watch which currently trades for around £30,000 as an alternative to the £100 casio we were talking about being able to wear to the gym and bash around without worries. Great input mate Laughing out loud

I tried on a Tudor Black Bay in Watches of Switzerland yesterday and am ready to pull trigger. They said they couldnt do anything on price for me though.

If I go to an indie will they likely do something off the price for me or is it the same across the board?

Go pre-owned and go for the ETA version…. The black they only made for 6 months so getting rarer and increasing in value… Plus no fake rivets like on the newer ones. Plus you get the rose logo on the dial.
