Recently bought a v8 Tissot. From what I have read, this seems to be the most common brand here

My friend is looking for a watch and budget is 10K. I asked him to check Edifice series by Casio. Is there any other good options at this price range?

EDIT: Naveen, model number please.

I got Swatch for 8k and Tommy Hilfiger for just above 11k.

If your friend likes non-chronograph watches, then Casio has some good models in this category too. Check them out at ANALOG-MEN'S - STANDARD - Watches - CASIO

I see so many folks addicted to Edifice. No takers for the Pathfinder/Pro-Trekker? What I have noticed is that even for watches there is a 80% price difference between India and Amazon. I was not expecting that.

A Tri-Sensor Tough Solar Pro-Trekker/Pathfinder costs 9K in Amazon, while the same costs 16K in India!

Nice seamaster Jeeper - I was seriously looking at this / second hand rolex before my wife reset my budget to about 1/6th o_0.

Do you have the metal strap too? IMO, I liked the metal strap - I am assuming that adds a hell a lot of weight though!

Any special things to note, when I ship that to India? I am planning to give my office address here in Trivandrum, Kerala.
It will attract a 30% duty at the customs on the invoice price . Personally, I wouldnt suggest this method. I think Malabar Gold sells Tag Heur.
