Don't do this. This isn't facebook.

Sinn has a thing. Its thing is german over-engineering with tegimented cases, diamond pallets and copper-sulfate dehumidifying with viewing window to monitor its capacity.

That watch doesn't have any of it. You can pay for the Sinn name and style if you want. I wouldn't.

Boutiques can be pretty chill. Their goal is to convey brand prestige to the public and create an image primarily. Selling product is of secondary concern.

But you can get at least a chill experience in any shop, for the most part, if you go when they're not busy. But some of those jewelry shops that just happen to have watches may not have any "watch people" on staff during certain parts of the day. So it's just some girl who sells rings and earrings watching you inspect watches.

I've been looking at getting a dog, and maybe doing a few other things too, for a few years now. I just need to be in the right position to get one.

Island and creation are nice for cheap watches

I got mine at auction.

Everyone should be casually keeping track of watch auctions. Sometimes there's some pretty good deals and also there are lots of neat things with major historical and horological significance that get auctioned off. Fun to just learn about and follow up on to see what it went for

I haven't read any of the reviews, but they seemed good. I've ordered from them

Island watch is good, you could try them instead if they also carry the watch you're looking at

Search the manufacturer's website for the nearest authorized dealer or boutique to you.

>but no nothing about retailers
Most are paid on commission, go at a not-busy time if you want to be courteous and not use up a salesperson's time when there is someone who might buy someone around that they could be helping. You can just tell them you are going to a few stores to try certain models on before you buy and they shouldn't pressure you too hard.

Yeah, tell them you're shopping around and looking at a couple different watches and brands and want to try them on before making your decision. Ideally you want to do this at a time where you're not tying up a sales person when there are other people in the store waiting to be helped.

Keep in mind an AD can provide discounts and often be a pretty decent deal, but depends on the brand and model.
