Another issue is I cannot wait for 7 days to own it

eBay India: CASIO Chronograph Watch /Retrograde/ 10% OFF / ED439 (item 300549540457 end time 27-Apr-2011 22:05:55 IST)
If i remember correct then it was 10% off + additional 5% of golden glow member discount from SS. Watches i always like to buy visiting stores rather than online.

Are you offering to procure this watch and send it to me in Hyderabad? Any idea of how much would that be in M.E after discount?
Oh, sorry for the late reply.

No, its just a pointer to the possibilities of cost reduction if some of your friends can bring the watch from ME. You can expect a min reduction of 2K.

Alright guys, I am also now a proud owner of a Casio Edifice watch.

I was in and out with it in < 15 minutes and also since I wrote a nice feedback of the salesperson. Perhaps, he thought i dont get such non-fussle making customer regularly and he payed tribute to that by offering me both freebies instead of one.

A casio calculator worth Rs.800 and a nice black G-Shock windbreaker as well.

Price : Rs.9995

Oh, that was quick. Very nice looking watch. Casio Edifice series are best VFM watches and most of them looks great.

Smile Re: Which watch do you own

Was just going through this site and was very impressed with the collection & the storage box that Tramway had. I've been a bit of a collector for sometime now & here are a few of the pocketwatches from my stable. I'll upload the wrist watches later .... haven't had a chance to photograph them as yet.

It says 1 year dealer warranty, no box, no manual.

Is it worth taking a chance?
Like others have mentioned, it doesn't look like an original. AFAIK, all Fossil watches come with 11 year warranty.

I bought my first Fossil from Shoppers stop about 7 yrs ago. That time, they offered me only 2 year warranty. The manual says 11yr international warranty unless otherwise specified.

@neilvaz: I have one exactly like the "atlanta" piece you posted.

are these worth anything?

Guys, i read about tissot that their warranties/indemnities etc is not valid on watched bought online.
any comments?

Beware of Casio Edifice on ebay especially the one's going for huge discounts or in bid because they are all high quality fakes.

I don't think the one Sajjt has posted is a fake mainly because in the listing the seller has mentioned it will be carrying a casio one year warranty and invoice.

P.S- Is there any solid way to know if the watch is a fake or not. The one traditional way is to check the weight of the watch because the fake ones are light weights but is there any other way also?
