    Any Omega discounts

    Thinking of looking at an Omega Seamaster 300 Diver. Suggested retail is £3600 but wondering is Omega a watch where discounts can be obtained from a boutique/OD etc. Anywhere you have seen doing discounts that i should look at, i would prefer in the Uk. Cheers.

    If grey market is an option, Montredo dot com is worth a look.

    In jan all the standard high street ADs had discounts on some models ranging from 10-20%

    I suspect as we head into March there maybe a few more discounts coming. If youíre a cash buyer discounts of 10-15% are not uncommon at most high street ADs.

    If youíre looking to buy on credit, the options are much more limited. Most firms will only do sale items on 12months or at around 9.9% apr

    Given these models arenít flying off the shelves I would simply ask. Worst thatíll happen is they say no!

    Actually this model is selling very well.

    Try UK Bullion in Sheffield. I bought the Speedmaster Moon watch at a discounted price.

    Yeah im a cash buyer. One or two places in and around the Glasgow area soi will have to hoof it to those dealers and see. Feel lost now as my Zenith Defy El Primero is already in for a warranty repair, my only other nice watch is my Bremont but its on a leather strap and i have started enjoying bracelets. No idea how long it will be away for but got the urge to buy something new and would prefer local as i can return it if anythin goe wrong like the Zenith issue. Cheers for the replies.

    I have only worn it a few times now and the past twice i pull out the crown to set the time, i then push it in and wind it, sometimes it starts fine and other times it doesnt start until i pull and push the crown a few times. Its as iff the stem isnt locating or something. Luckily i bought from Rox in the Arcade in Glasgow and they took it back for repair and promised to have it sorted but didnt give me an idea of how long it could take, i believe they are phoning me later this week.

    Tried Beaverbrooks in Braehead? (no affiliation) Surely more likely to give a discount than the Omega boutique in the city centre.

    You will have just as much chance of a discount from the OB. They offered me a pretty good discount on a speedy pro last year (about £500 from memory). The boutique in Glasgow is operated by goldsmiths.

    I was offered 5% off at the Trafford Omega shop when they first come out. I'm sure you could do much better now they have been out a while.

    Thanks, might not be worth the hassle for a few hundred if anything goes wrong with it. I will have a look. Cheers.

    16.7% (1/1.2) at the airport. Equivalent to Vodka And Tonic saving.

    A few years ago I bought a PO with about £600 off and 0% from an AD and at the time many said it would be extremely unlikely to get both.

    So what did you find out? Iíve never been interested in a Seamaster until now but this new version looks excellent.

    Quite fancy trying a blue one. Been tempted to pull the trigger on the black ones that hit the SC recently but I have a standard Speedy Pro and figure along with a blue Seamaster would make a nice pairing.

    Tried a few avenues to buy one so far but I just didn’t pull the trigger as yet for one reason or another but thanks to those who replied or sent pm’s. still considering my options.

    On another note my Zenith Defy El Primero 21 is on its way back to Italy for a repair so no idea how long it will be away but I’m expecting it to be a while.

    The main thing I found out that itís more difficult than I thought, a few member suggested places to try for varying amount of discount but not being close to any ( Iím in Scotland) makes it more difficult to do a deal.

    Iím looking for the Diver 300M with the wave dial- grey with blue bezel on a bracelet would be my first choice.

    Maybe Chronext should be worth considering then?

    That is a good deal. I have found it depends on the desperation of the AD and the sales person to get a deal done. Especially if itís a slow selling model or itís been out a while.

    The PO while itís popular there is a healthy and wide ranging secondary market in all models and the ADs know this.

    Richemont buying watchfinder proves the brands are more interested in the secondary market and impact on prices (and sales of new and nearly new models) than ever before.

    I think these are the old pre wave dial versions though. If they had of been the 2018 versions i would have been all over them.

    Currently flogging my PO for one!

    There's one for sale in the Sales Corner for a bargain price in black. If it was the blue version, I'd be after it myself.

    If you contact Dom he can source you any one you want. It will be brand new from an AD but much cheaper.

    Thatís good, Dom is great to deal with. The Omega bracelets are pretty big, far bigger than Rolex if that helps but donít know if it will be ok for you, I got two taken out of my seamaster PO and wear the Rolex as they come.

    It was the orange bezel model on the bracelet. I pushed hard and the deal was done. Wish I had kept it now as itís my favourite watch to date.

    Sorry to sound thick

    So can anyone confirm if you buy a watch through HackettWatches do you get one that has come from an AD so the warranty is with them?

    I want to buy the new 300M Diver too and will have the funds (so cash) in April.

    I don't mind trying a few shops out to get a deal. As the RRP is £3600 I am hoping to get around the £3000 mark. But I don't want to buy grey if that means the warranty is no good. Any advice would be great.
