my daily wear tissot has had a problem, the millisecond hand on the chronometer resets itself to the 8 position instead of 0 now and it pisses me off. will this be expensive to fix?

no mate it will cost approximately £36.80 and will take 45 mins max for a jeweler to fix

Currently like a few of the Panerai / Bell & Ross "lights" on http://www.lum-tec.com/

Also a big fan of http://www.omegawatches.com/index.php?id=281&details;=1&ref;=28033437&no;_cache=1

Have you asked any dealer?

Unless there is a waiting list, you will get a discount.

yeah tried quite a few, nothing. some are even selling at a premium. best ive found so far is 20% off swiss list price, but because the £ is so weak only works out at about 5% off uk list.

Official dealers will negotiate at the mo. I just bought Mrs Jeg a Radiomir for her b'day and got a respectable % off for cash. Just ask, shop around and ask again

where did you get from? seems like there still very high demand for the hublots Sad been to marcus on bond street, selfridges, harrods and tried about 5 family friends in the industry who wouldnt charge anything over cost price but they cant even get hold of it. waiting on one more to get back to me but not too hopeful.

dont think ive ever bought a brand high end new watch…real pointless imo….get one that someones had to cash in and take a hit on, or i always get one you have to buy 2nd hand (no pun) cos you cant get them new due to the waiting list.
