I was in HK and early September, and saw the Milgauss at several AD's. HK is the best place to buy a Rolex, IMHO - large selection of AD''s, no sales tax, and you should be able to obtain a discount. Many AD's in the TST, Causeway Bay areas, and each major shopping mall has at least 1 or 2 AD's (Chow Sang Sang and/or Chow Tai Fook).

Share some photos after you purchase it.

Lots of ADs at Nathan Road, from Tsim Shia Tsui to Mongkok, Millgaus no problemo. Ask for discount(they'll surely give), if you have the luxury of time compare dicounts from AD to AD. Get a card from AD sales rep you visit, let them write the dicounted amount and show the least to another AD rep. I'm sure you'll get a bargain.
This is what I did, and got US$200 savings. . .

Didn't really pay much attention on which Milgauss model they were, but I know for a fact that they were at the AD's there.

It seems hard to belive to get a discount from MSRP on the GVs. I think buying them at MSRP is considered a good price. AM I RIGHT?

Please share the GV price in HK ADs.

GV is not yet widely available in HK, but it's only a matter of time.

Just got back from my HK trip. Got a GV for a little over MSRP. HK$48,500. Am very much happy with it. The green crystal is really special. I like the way it glows at angles.

Delighted you got the GV at a price you were happy with.

I do notice that in todays market $48500 HKD equates to 4200 which equates also to UK RRP + 10%. So while they may be available in HK it may appear that you are paying a premium for that pleasure.

Evenso considering all things equal ......YOU NOW OWN A BEAUTIFUL WATCH SO CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN....

GV is available in HK however it is not widespread as normal Milgauss models. You have to have some luck with you to find a GV. However discount will be hard to archeive.

Discount is given upon normal models.
Try also Prince Jewellery and Watches and Emperor Watch & Jewellery. Also dealers located around central and causeway bay should give good discount. Good luck with ur hunting!!

I like no tax wish it were here

One must recognise that there is going to be a lot of Milgauss around, but the GV Milgauss with the green crystal, well that is a different story, they are not so easy to come across............but not impossible.

Milgauss

Hi "the King",
Just would like to know if you were able to get a GV in HK?
I'm heading there next month and I was wondering if the GV's are available and how much.
Thanks.

Thanks Seadweller,
As you know, doobiehowsermd got his GV for 48500 HKD but there's a rumor that AD's are going to increase prices of about 10 - 15% this month. Granted this is true the GV will be expected to be just over 53K.
I hope the rumors are false.
Thanks and have a safe trip.

Your HK price is about HK$8,400 cheaper than the cheapest price in Tokyo. Great buy. I'll do the same next time I'm transiting HK. Thanks for the information. Great stuff
