They sell their pieces at merchant to merchant prices and not the tourist prices.

A 5980/1R is no longer 1.3-1.35M HKD. It's around floating around 1.15-1.2
Where is watchfare in holiday inn is that in tsim sha tsui?

No. It's a watchfare for all greys in Hong Kong and around the world that attend.

Agreed. But way more awesome when there is a T stamp printed on the dial.

Nope, today it’s $53,000 -what I paid for mine 2 months ago. Tiffany means nothing to me- I would rather have the simplicity of a pure 5711R from PP. just my opinion. Big congratulations Mr Yellow- it’s a wonderful piece. :-)

That's a good value assuming you can score one. Regardless of the frenzy.

i mean the 5711R is a wonderful watch and the t stamp is cool for resale but otherwise yaaawwwwnnn. for me T is a totally overblown mass production jewelry chain with history but without genuine artistic touch and with some appeal to teenagers. that P still lets them brand watches is - interesting. it must be an interesting business accommodation between them.
but huge congrats to the slim ninja, very well done and make the most of it!!!! i will just follow suit soon, learning from the master:::)))
