Got this guy on Friday; my first real watch purchase. 24% off from an AD, ordered from out of state. 👍

Set it on Friday, and it’s gained about 2 seconds total since. Very pleased.

My (now) last gen speedy was losing 60 seconds a day at one point ... luckily was within the 5 year warranty so had it serviced for free, but even still omega sent it back at +6

The dealer likely did not have economic nexus in your state (ie Wayfair US Supreme Court Decision) and thus did not charge you. Technically, you would owe use tax in your resident state on this assuming your state has a sales/use tax. This normally is reported on your resident state individual income tax return. Sorry for being so technical here.

Yes. Please DM me the AD. I almost pulled the trigger on a black one but the blue may now be my next watch. Tnx.

Can you DM me the name too? On the market for this and could not find it for more than 15% off

damn, i just got mine for a 15% discount, great piece!

Damn that’s a nice discount and great watch OP. Looking at getting the black one in rubber later this year.

Incredible piece. Love the blue dial. I'm looking to get this exact one. Please DM me the AD information, if you can.

Could you DM me the AD as well? Am planning to pick this up as well

Hi! I’m a woman and an attorney, and my current $20 Casio just ran out of battery and I think it’s my sign to get something a little more professional. Im really unfamiliar with watches but have been lurking in this thread for a little and hoping I can get some good advice. I’ve found that many women’s watches are quartz (maybe due to the size?) and im not interested in a quartz movement. Any suggestions for a sub $2k women’s watch that is mid to small size and has a mechanical movement? Thanks!
