This needs no introduction. Excellent work by Velociphile on how to buy a watch.
1. Know your target. Know the bottom line cheapest price in your country, and rest of world from greys (and then take off 10%).
2. Persistence -Agree with all the dealer’s points whining about shop rent, “last one available” nonsense or a “special price for today” – whatever. Just nod sagely, but don’t budge from your view; preferably based on well researched facts from ‘1’.
3. Pitch several dealers against each other if possible.
4. Patience. Say less, do not fill silences in the conversation. The fact that you haven’t walked away signals you are still interested.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
