Apart from Amazon, what other trusted sites are there for watches in the £0-£5000 range?

    it tickles me that you trust amazon to deliver on a £5000 watch :rotfl:

    straight to rolex or use watchfinder depending on what brand name you want to show off to everyone
    I should add timex as well seeing as I used to work for them when they made real watches

    I don't trust amazon for that level. I can only dream of that level by the way, but nice to look :)

    Also that means rolex is out of range for me.

    Timex are great.

    At an absolute stretch, I am more at the Omega or Seiko range.

    Watches of switzerland.


    I have used them for my watch also get it serviced by them.


    I would never use amazon or Argos for an expensive watch.

    watchesworld.co.uk or watchshop.com

    I have used them before so I know they have legitimate options.

    It's also worth looking at any local independents you have. the internet is not always cheapest - let alone best overall value - for watches.

    Especially in the Seiko range you'll find a lot of grey imports online. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it does complicate matters if you need parts (especially case parts) in future because Seiko UK (and other companies) tend not to stock parts for models they haven't imported.

    They'll still get them if needed but you're at the mercy of their lead times which tend to be around 3 months for parts ordered from Japan.

    Anyone used Watch Creation in Singapore?

    I was looking at the Seiko Flightmaster

    I have emailed them to ask about import charges, I guess it could be 20% on top.

    Not the first time I've recommended them https://www.cohenandmassias.com are a company in Gib, which means no import tax and you pay in sterling. I've visited the store on a number of occasions and have had 3 or 4 online purchases delivered without any issue over the years.
