David, just re-read the above paragraphs courtesy of SWG and you'll see
that all that talk about warranty, stealers (pardon, dealers), not
selling through the internet, etc., is mostly a ploy by the
manufacturers to really avoid competitiveness in the channel and
segregate the market by regions.
Yeah it seems strange that they wouldn't allow ADs to sell online.
Seems quite backward! The local Omega AD that I was speaking with is,
however, willing to negotiate on price which is a good sign!
Where to buy a watch is a complicated question. You will need to do
your research, as you have many options. For your information, I have
bought high-end Swiss watches overseas over the 'net with dealer stamp
and therefore full warranty at a price lower than what the local
stealers would do. As usual, buyer beware.
I like the idea of buying from a local AD that can service them local
as well. The Omega dealer here can service the watch as well which is
appealing. Once any watch is out of warranty I guess it is different
anyway, but I am also a fan of the whole local economy idea as well :)
I don't mind paying a little more to buy it here, but if the difference
is significant then that is a different story!
