    Personally, I think they are really a luxury business. For 99% of their buyers, the product is frankly immaterial - the cache of owning a Rolex is the important thing. Many owners probably only...

    But why didn't they rate it to 200m or even 300m then? As a practical point, how can you separate the effect of the super compressor tech from any other WR tech it has??

    I think that not mentioning the problem dial is a bit naughty!!! OK, if they were up front, that's fine, but not to sneak it in announced. I assumed that they were merely old photos - I'd have been...

    That's the snag really - it talks about its 'Super Compressor' heritage technology, but so what? Its 'only' WR to 150m which is only average for today's watches. The technology for high WR these days...

    I thought that - I stared at the pics wondering if I was paranoid, or being hyper critical because of the previous controversy, but they aren't right - presumably it must be that they took a set of...

    Amazing that the not long released C65 Super Compressors are already being sold at 60% list!!! They do look great, but for me it's still a lot of money.

    So...sort of ebay's GSP, but compulsory? It sounds fine, as long as the price that are adding 20% on to is tax free!

    Annoying? Understatement! How could anyone charge 70 for shipping at all, let alone an increase of 70? Do they deliver them by personal delivery in chauffeur driven Mercedes?

    I'm not Nostradamus, but there are bound to be unexpected results and unintended consequences from all this, which will keep the pot boiling away! Clearly, hardly anyone was aware of the VAT changes...

    I used the ebay GSP system to buy a watch from the USA, and it was great except that the USPS took forever to send it across the US to the ebay GSP centre in Kentucky! (btw it got from there to my...

    That leaves me slightly confused as well! I can't see how we will not have to pay VAT to a Govt at some point, but since under the deal we have tariff free trade, we shouldn't have any customs duties...
