Boutique Pricing

Are Omega Boutiques offering any sort of discount on the Speedy Pro hesalite in bracelet? Im looking to pick one up soon and would prefer to buy at a boutique. Just wanted to hear what types of discounts or freebies people have gotten recently.

Thanks for your input!

Boutiques generally don't offer discounts so unless you're getting a LE or boutique only watch, you're better off going to an AD to get a discount. I only buy accessories like a bracelet or nato strap from the Omega boutique.

I think that's factory boutique stores in general.

As mentioned, boutiques do not really discount. Maybe a few percent for a repeat customer. What Omega boutiques will do is offer pretty awesome gifts for customers. They can range from nice swag, to all expense paid trips to sponsored events, to flying you to NASA, to first class trips to their HQ.

Ultimately, it depends on if you want to buy your way towards exclusive offers from a boutique or save money via discounts through an AD. If you don't plan on buying new in the future, I recommend going the AD route and saving a bit of money.

Supposedly they are getting tougher and tougher to get.

I doubt you will find too much discounting going on.

Speedy Pro on shortage? Did Omega learn that from Rolex?

Seems like every grey dealer has them on hand ready to ship though.

I bought my Speedmaster Pro hesalite from Takuya. Great price, great service, free shipping, shipped directly from an authorized dealer. It's the only way to go in my opinion.

in Spain, Omega boutiques do not make discounts, they can give you some detail or gift, I always go to official distributors that are more flexible
