lmao sadly the truth comes out

If you want economic benefit, pick up a cheap quartz watch that you like and forget about the watch world entirely ;)
But why does anyone buy cars with V8 or V12 when you can buy a car with 4 cylinder? Same point.

Just a heads up that the ever popular Swatch Group Friends and Family sale is coming up on December 7th.

Thanks. Aiming to pick up a few Omegas for the family and resale pop.

Doesn't look like Omega is on the list and they weren't on sale last year too.
Current Fido customer.
Ex Koodo customer. Beware of their tactics.

Click the link and follow the individual threads - looks like it’s unadvertised. They were at the June event. Rolling the dice! Btw I would never actually wait in a line to give someone my money - sending an admin assistant.

Doesn't make you less of a sucker. In the end you're still giving someone your money.

Has anyone purchased a watch on Amazon before? I'm looking for a Seiko Chronograph watch and Amazon has many for sub-$200. Meanwhile at The Bay has similar styles for over $400 (but at least they're on sale).

Seiko ($171 Canadian)

The two watches you list are not the same model. The one from Amazon shows lume on the minute markers, a different push button for the chronograph functions, light blue marks on the 3,6, 9, and 12 o'clock markers on the Amazon version. The size of the dials are different as well (40mm vs 43mm). The Bay says it has sapphire crystal, but the Amazon website says it has a hardlex crystal. My Seiko dive watch has a hardlex crystal which I assume most (or maybe all) Seiko's use.

Also the one from Amazon is from Miami Trading but fulfilled by Amazon. The one from the Bay says there is a date window at 3 o'clock, but clearly the image shows the date window between 4 and 5 o'clock.

I purchase most of my Seiko's online from asian vendors. Usually from chino-watch, Seiya Japan, shoppinginjapan, or watchspree.

Canadian MSRP prices for Seiko's are simply set too high. Even after getting an obligatory 30% off, you're still paying a lot more than purchasing from overseas.
