    who has the best prices and a good selection of victorinox watches, international shipping?
    it will be one of their lower priced ones, if that matters.
    thanks.

    8 days left until i can order one, i removed and inserted the battery in my phone around 10 times yesterday.
    i'm going mad.

    This place has great prices and fast shipping. They are a grey market dealer (not authorized) so factory warranty won't apply, but they cover you with their own 3 year warranty. Probably a non-issue, but you never know. I've had great service ordering from them. You should be able to find coupons from them also. They have the Garrison right now for $95.

    Have you tried local stores in your neighborhood? I'm from mainland Europe too, and I was surprised to see them at my local jewellery and watch shop yesterday! So expensive though... :(

    It's pretty common in the watch world. I might hesitate to by a $3000 watch from a grey market dealer, but wouldn't think twice about a $300 one. Joma is certainly a reputable watch seller, just not a factory authorized dealer. Their retail store is in New York City and has been since 1987. They also sell purses, jewelry, pens, etc.

    I purchased my Vic Diver from Princeton watches dot com. They are authorized and I had an issue with my first watch, they switched mine out with a new one.

    There are a few B+M stores near me that sell Vics, but the markup is ridiculous. I have bought a couple watches through Joma, and while they are "grey" they stand behind their products and provide good service.

    There are different shades of grey, I would say 50 but that's another thread on a different forum.:bounce:

    But seriously, from what I have experienced with them plus what I have read about what others have to say about Joma, I wouldn't be too concerned with buying a watch from them in the $200-300 range.

    A couple of months ago intending to purchase a Vic watch online I contacted their official customer service for getting an advice about a reliable online seller. They recommended not to buy online and try it in a local store.
