Along with the unofficial arrse watch. 300m and 100m WR, they're quartz so nothing fancy, good beaters though. I'd like to get a mechanical diver one day.
Very good videos, the prices seemed a little cheap for the UK even when this was filmed in 2019/20. But I did notice that they didn't include the sales tax. Would you happen to know what the tax would be on that purchase?. Even a rough figure. As it may be worth a trip state side to do a little shopping.
Affordable? With a three figure price tag! Still happy with my Argos special, the £14.99 Lorus
Look on the bright side - you've got four years to save up.
At $310 = £220 ÷ 48 months = £4.58 per month, round it up to £5 to get a start on the tax and yes, affordable.
We used to come over on annual holidays to Florida before the Mrs got a posting here. There are plenty of places around the Tourist Bubble of Orlando and Tampa that will do the tax free paperwork for you. The places we used to go they always knocked off the tax when we showed out passports, I've heard of others where you get the paperwork and get a refund from their cuzzers at the airport.
I am pretty sure I have seen similar tax free shopping indicators for tourists to California. Theoretically you could go anywhere and get the stuff tax free. Bear in mind it costs more to fly from the UK to popular tourist destinations which will affect your profit level. Best to fly to a less popular/cheaper airport, then book a separate flight to take you onwards - once I discovered this wheez we used to fly to Boston, or Philadelphia and then on to Tampa, or Orlando saving around a grand between a family of four.
A mate of mine used to fly from UK to NY with his girlfriend to go shopping a couple of times a year. They basically used to fly over with a holdall and a couple of empty suitcases, go to the outlet malls around NY - he reckoned that half a dozen pairs of jeans repaid the cost of the flight.
It is also worthwhile crawling around some of the dealers in out of the way Towns/Cities and timing your visit to coincide with a collectors/dealers fair in NYC.
Worth a visit (Tag & Breitling): ===> Welcome To Woodbury Common Premium Outlets® - A Shopping Center In Central Valley, NY - A Simon Property
I picked up a new Tag Targa Florio for around $1200 when they were going for $2000 full retail outside.

White or Black Dial? $7g is actually actual cheap!.
The prices have dipped lately but a few months ago the Rolex "Batman" and the "Hulks" were selling for North of £18000!. They are about 13000 atm but can be had from an AD for around 8000 if your lucky enough to get one.
Yup, never buy new. Let some other mug take the hit of depreciation..........just like buying that Turbo, Nutter, B'stard, Blingy car.
My lad watches this bloke. He is a Brit who has made it big in La'La Land, he may have the mega millions bank account, the younger trophy wife, and the private jet, but he still tries to come across as a bit humble* - sadly he has picked up the Hollywood dress sense. The watch shop he is in is located in Beverley Hills and whilst small does a huge amount of online business and business with the glitterati who are switched on enough not to waste their money buying new.
Worth watching for some of the buying tips.
Note: * Like a kiddy in a sweetie shop. He doesn't seem to take himself too seriously.
The other trick, on a massive scale is to take out a full page advert in some unheard of glossy mag of said watch for 100s of squidIt's the model with the orange quadrant between 1 and 4...... i think they went out of fashion, but green and orange seem to be back in again.
GWENT Police are urging members of the public to be vigilant of a possible scam involving a man claiming to be selling watches.www.southwalesargus.co.uk
Anyone ever been approached by this bugger...... ?
I've heard of them, but finally met up with one near the motorway slip road near Chester le street...... pretended he was an italian jeweller on his way up to Edinburgh to open a new shop, running short of petrol, but credit card refused, could I lend him £100 for petrol, he'd give me 3 chronometers worth a grand in exchange.
Played him along for a while, said I'd only come out to Aldi with 2 quid for some frozen chips, so he pissed off, but I clocked the name of these "chronometers" and googled them....... 100 for E100 on e- Bay.
If you're ever approached by one of these bastards, take their reg- always a car hire, and ring plod immediately, only realised how evil they were after Googling them...... as ever they try to take advantage of the elderly and gullible.
