Many ADs in country's with lower prices - like the US at the moment with the weak dollar will ship internationally, so you can have the benefit of an AD rather than running the risk at grey market online dealers.

However, depending on where you live your country may have import duties / taxes / etc applied which will negate any benefit - these would apply equally to an online purchase or an overseas AD.

If you travel then there is also the opportunity to pick one up then, although technically the import duty and tax issue will still likely apply.

Hi there

For a start, tell us what country you're in?

I live in France and can recommend my AD here in Toulouse - this said, his price will be what is in the price list - tell me what you're looking for and I'll tell you how much it costs here.

Regards

We are cheaper!
In Austria the watch comes to Euro 2090,-
But I can offer You a special deal with taxrefund and some discount, as long as Croatia is not an EU member yet.
You get back about 15,5% on the tax and with 10% discount together it comes to about 1590,-
But You have to make a trip to Vienna, as sending the watch per mail can trigger some unpredictable customs fees...
