    actually, most watch stores offer "discounts" from their sticker price.
    except SM.
    heh heh.

    True. SM department stores offer a tepid 10% discount off the retail price of watches they sell. So if they price a normal Seiko Samurai at 22k, you're still paying around 18k or about 4k more than the actual market price of the watch.

    ^very true. After I bought this, I went with wifey to browse Washington Jewelers in Festival. Same watch for P13t plus (compared to P15t plus in CE) but their discount is only 10% so still a better deal in CE. I didnít explore other watch stores (like the ones in Ali Mall or Mega mall) since watch isnít expensive naman. Mas mahal pa fuel papunta dun.

    SM doesnít carry Orient. Orient is not a brand normally sold in dept. stores unlike Seiko or Citizen. Wala sa Landmark, Robinsonís or SM. Only known watch botiques sell this.

    Is there some weight to it? I mean, doesn't feela like those non branded watches na magaan?

    Marami pa sila ibang models doon?

    Pareho tayo. Heft (weight) is one of the things I look for in a watch kasi tingin ko pag may weight, quality sya. Besides, Orient is a brand I am familiar with in my youth. Nagulat lang ako na di pala sya mahal, maganda pa. Like I said in an earlier post. I was overwhelmed with the choices in CE. Di pa kasi ako familiar sa Mako & Ray models at yung differences nung 1, 2 or 3. I went there aiming to buy the Open Heart pero di bagay sakin so Sales Person said the newest is the Mako 3. Wifey said they had all the 8 models of the new one. I just chose this because at 44mm, looks better on my wrist (I have big hands).

    Do they have Orient Star there din?

    ORIENT STAR: Mechanical Contemporary Watch, Metal Strap - 41.5mm (JC1B) | ORIENT Watch Global Site medyo pricey so its best to hold and wear it before buying

    seiko owns orient. but it seems, seiko allows orient to do its thing.
    perhaps there is more to it than we imagine.

    i got one of the last orient stars. when i went back a few weeks later, wala na lahat.
    lucky me.

    errr...
    the orient stars there before, were basic models, with only the power reserve indicator and the date, as extras.

    Yes, they also have quite a few Orient Stars there.
    Don’t look at the Orient watch Global. They are not updated. Look at the Orient Watch Japan site. All the new models are there.

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
