Not at all authentic. These chaps are the same fellows who ran digaaz.com which was another con site, as Google uncle will tell you. When a deal is too good to be true, it isn't true.

They claim to be affiliated to the US store of the same name but a whois search shoes that is a lie. Don't do it.

Can someone here let me know where to find original or authentic looking straps for Casio F-91W ? I'm from Hyderabad and have searched and asked around at a lot of watch shops, but couldn't find them.

A couple of weeks ago I saw straps for Rs.160 on casioindiaclub but that site has since been down.

I have two of these watches that need straps. Your help is highly appreciated!

I have been searching for Electric Blue HMT Kohinoor for years now! If anyone has any pointer towards it, I would really appreciate it.

I wanted to gift a watch to my mother and was hovering around Rado and Longines in my local store. they only offered a maximum discount of 10% whereas i got a discount of flat 15% of buying from ethoswatches.com. I bought a Rado Florence Diamond watch. Hope the experience and delivery remains good.

That's because it is an Automatic. Read more about it here.

Awesome watch by the way.

Anybody has received the 'Provogue' watch for Rs.299 that you can avail by logging into ICICI bank netbanking? The cost of the watch is Rs.2499, but if you login to ICICI, then only the shipping/handling charges need to be paid.

Absolutely agree to that. My experience is also based on the Reebok watch. Third rate product.

I wear Swatch, Fossil.

Guys, don't fall for the watches shown in spam websites. There are few websites that will claim to sell original for a huge discounts due to those products being outdated.
Firstly, luxury brands do not make in excess. secondly, they will prefer to have outdated stock destroyed rather than have them sold via a third party.

I have seen the seiko 2nd gen Orange Monster srp309k1 for around 220 USD on US websites. Is there any website that would ship to India, and include customs duties in their billing. I can get it locally for around Rs 22,000/- so if I could get it imported for around Rs 17,000/-, it would mean a significant saving. Any ideas guys?

Is the casioindiaclub.com website shutdown for good? It's been on "Maintenance" for the last couple of weeks!

Hi. Login to eBay.com and look for a seller from Singapore. There are 2 big reputed eBay sellers from Singapore who have lots of brand new seiko and citizen watches in their online store. They ship it through FedEx and customs is handled by FedEx and finally when the watch is delivered to you FedEx takes the custom duty from you. I bought my seiko flight master chronograph from this seller "pokemonyou" for about 12k with customs duty in 2012. All prices based on USD.
