    2 grand is rather cheap for a Tag swiss automatic. There are lots of internet sites which sell "gray market" Tags and other swiss watches. You'll get about 30 to 40 percent off the list price.

    Don,
    I'm not so sure but I found the pricing to be less + no tax or shipping. They all seem to want to deal down on the price they have listed as well. You may not find a Tag dealer or what I was looking for(digital camera) dealer locally that will deal down on the price.

    I guess you could consider the trip to the carribean as part of the expense if you really wanted to but I wouldn't personally.

    The carribean is a hot bed for electronics(lots of dvd players and digital cameras), and Jewelry(wife got a steal on a necklace. You just have to be smart and know what it costs online before you go and what you can deal with. They want your $$ down there and will deal extensively with you. The best places I've found were St Maarten and St Thomas.

    Shane,

    I have a Breitling "Coltocean" automatic divers watch (blue dial, good to 500 meters). It has a metal band which is very comfortable. I suppose because it is so well made. It has a very smooth finish and doesn't pull on my arm hair. Try ashford.com to see if they have Tag watches. Better just go on a search in Google.

    Believe it or not, Costco sells Tags. Not the greatest selection and they come in and out, but, if one's near you, you might check it out.

    I dont believe Costco sells automatic Tags, just quartz ones. Autos retain their value for decades while quartz watches do eventually break down and become useless.

    Yeah, I've seen the ones at CostCo. Not crazy about the selection. That ashford.com has some pretty good prices.[​IMG]
