    I was in HK last November and I observed that for high-end watches, you save an additional 5-8% more compared prices here net of AD discount. There are also more choices available unlike here where you have ADs with a limited number of pieces in their glass cases. Looking for the Tudor BB GMT? You likely won't find it in local ADs. But there, there are plenty. Looking for a nice dress watch from NOMOS? Good luck finding one here apart from Washington in Power Plant Mall. But there, even the small watch botiques have them...all models pa.

    i agree.
    it is nice to go watch-hunting in HK. simply put, there are more models to see.
    are there fakes? ...i still remember this story about... as the story went, within a few hours of the discovery, the HK store was closed down.

    Re: fakes...there are authorized dealers for the big brands like Rolex, Omega, Panerai etc. If you are looking for pre-owned, usually the store or botique will offer you models that come with papers and tags. In some cases, they will be willing to open up the watch for you so you can see if the movement is authentic. Thing is, you have to be knowledgeable if what you're looking at is the real deal. There are reputable sellers of pre-owned watches in HK vetted by watch enthusiasts online. I guess if you stick to that you will avoid buying a fake watch.

    There was one time may bumili sa AD sa hong kong tapos ang watch na binigay replica. I read it in the internet pero nabawi din niya pera niya few year after niya nalaman na rolex replica pala binigay sa kanya. Kaya mas safe siguro sa boutiques pa din bumili sa hk.

    guwapo.

    OT,
    meron bang barong made of synthetic fabric, such that it is not prone to punit and wear and tear, and yet still looks like a natural-fiber barong?

    it was for a particular model.
    i did not compare the other models, as i was not interested in them.

    just ask your mule to see the watch you want over there, and text you the price, for you to compare against its asking price here. then you can immediately text him your decision.

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
