Thread: Can this be correct? (Watch Pricing)

    Can this be correct? (Watch Pricing)

    This deal canít be correct...? Nearly a 25% discount from the retail. Read some of the reviews of the Customer Service and they are less than glowing..... does that matter though when purchasing a brand name?
    Sorry if this is the wrong place to post... just signed up but have been contemplating an S2000 for some time now.

    Can't see why not. Most AD'S have some margin if they are willing to move on a watch. Matthew Michaels in Bournemouth used to be an AD, when they pulled away they sold all the Bremonts at a fairly large mark down, including a Norton. They still have one or two advertised on their website as pre owned now.

    They have probably had them a while so a lot of the discount could be the recent price rises it does have the old logo on the face. Still a good buy though.

    Lex Tempus/Jack Ryan is doing 35% off retail, so it looks like some dealers are trying to clear out some old stock:

    Even with shipping, the prices at Lex Tempus are rather good deals even for us in the UK. Not sure what the deal with import tax is though, shipping from the US to the UK?

    That is a good price but you will have VAT on top of that plus a couple % import duty as well. Could always get around it by getting a friendly US based forum member to ship the watch to you and declare it at nil value for customs purposes

    Thanks. Just a bit confused. There has only ever been one version of the S2000 no? Did they change the logo on the front at some point?

    From memory, I think the S2000 has always had the newer branding, whereas the s500 used to have the older Bremont font, prop logo, and said "Swiss made" instead of "London".

    Thanks for all your comments guys. Reading some real bad things about Beaverbrooks (selling old display models with damage etc. as new to online customers) - will mull it over. Getting an S2000 one way or another.
