I'm going on a business trip to Hong Kong in a few weeks. Havent been back to HongKong for more than thirty years so I'm adding a few days to look around and see what has changed.

I might be looking for a new watch. Are there any particular shops that carry a good selection of luxury watches.

Its always been a CASIO or TIMEX full digital, no frills, backlit waterproof watch. First one in 89, 165 rupees, 2 buttons,made in Japan. Changed 4 times since. Latest one CASIO 4 buttons, backlit, silver metallic. Don't see a successor....theres a retro lineup from CASIO though, costs fancy!

You have to be extremely careful, as Hong Kong is a mecca for counterfeits. Time was when the luxury watch prices in India were one of the lowest. I got my Rolex at 25% discount, and upto 30% was a possibility.

I suggest that you go around luxury watch showrooms and haggle a lot to get an idea of the current prices, and then compare them to the street prices in Hong Kong.

Edit : Visit Kapoor as well as Johnson, in South Ex and CP. Between them they carry most of the brands.

I am unable to let go of anything I buy unless it totally fails me nostalgia & loyalty.

Like I own a Fiat Uno for 14 yrs now...
Use the same Samsonite hard luggage for travel since 15 yrs..
I own a Sector Chrono that I bought in Denmark for Rs 10000 equivalent then for 15 yrs...

Tempted to buy a Skagen or Rado; but dont get to it.

Hope you get to buy what you love.
Thanks folks, My Dilemma is continuing to grow and now the selection is either super simple or most complicated dials. The new swift in the selection process also included the following two watches. record your vote:

Been using a Tissot T Touch for the last three years along with one Casio G Shock and a good old Titan. I still have the old Alwyn 21 jewels auto wind from my school days but not being used.

Forget the Jaeger, go for the Panerai. Infinitely classier in my opinion. Simplicity of design, great quality, super functionality and real elegance!
