    STOWA €50 voucher

    Just got an email from Stowa offering a €50 voucher valid until 23:59 on 31/05/21. They say it's personalised, but it may well work for someone else here - I'm not in the market for a new watch.

    It's a one time voucher, so...if you will definitely purchase a new Stowa by 31/05, pm me and I might be able to save you €50...

    1st to reply gets the voucher - but please only request it if you are 100% going to buy a new Stowa.

    Blue strapped version of the G Steel I posted above for €138 delivered
    At that price I'm nearly tempted myself though I already have a variant. The Solar and radio controlled time makes a great watch to just grab when your rushing in the morning. Out of stock but you can preorder.

    Amazon UK build any customs fees into their pricing so far as I'm aware so that should be the price you pay


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,107 ✭✭✭ Ryath

    No the price I quoted includes Irish VAT Amazon collect it. You'll see in check out UK VAT is removed and an import fees deposit added so prices go up by 3%. It's actually dropped another €20 since I posted so down to €166.50 or so if you pay with revolut.

    Thanks Guys.

    Another question for you.
    Any thoughts on this? From this newbie’s point of view it seems to be priced well.
    Seller has sold a good few watches with good reviews. Anybody here?

    Seller has a long history of impeccable feedback, cannot see any issue.

    Thanks. And on the watch itself. If I’m correct these are about €430 new?

    Not you is it?:D

    Oh no its not me. Yeah the ceramic black is around 430 euro + around 17 euro delivery so not a bad discount. They are an alright watch, a little on the thick side but as hommage watchs go stienhart offer great value for money. They also tend to resell well.

    Thanks Fitz.

    You won't be disappointed with that Steinhart! For €300 I can't think of any watch that would come close on specs for that price. Had one and enjoyed it a lot. I eventually sold it on, but had no complaints.

    At €300 that's good value. Only thing to say is, the lugs can be long and at 42 mm if you have small wrists it will look big on you. If you can at all, try it on before buying it.

    If the seat's wet, sit on yer hat, a cool head is better than a wet ar5e.

    Someone just got in ahead of me. That's what I get for overthinking it I suppose.
    I put a bid in if the sale doesn't go through. Might be lucky........

    Well 70mm so if we go cost per mm this is a bit of a bargain.

    Not to burst your bubble You can get it for €177 form amazon Italy if you can return it.

    https://www.amazon.it/dp/B07JF61L6J?

    I've been tempted by it myself the last while it's on offer. I'm just not sure about the Orient name or logo, though it's a better quality watch than a Seiko for the money but think I'd sooner the spend a bit more on the Seiko.

    On the look out for something similar myself want something with high legibility and leaning to a black dial. Would like Arabic numbers but that's not as much of a deal breaker. Basically I want a Seiko Spork which is discontinued or a Sinn 857 which is slightly over budget! €200 is about the limit.

    At the price point I prefer the Ray II over the Seiko 5 but if the budget was higher Id go Seiko for something more modern in classic modern diver.

    I ordered one of these at the end of May. It's out of stock at the moment. Amazon have told me (in Spanish) that they will email me when they have an expected delivery date. Are Amazon likely to "honour" the order when no money has been taken from my bank account yet? Does anyone have any experience of this sort of situation and how long might the delay be for me?

    If you ordered via Amazon directly, rather than as fulfilled by or Amazon marketplace?
    I'd be very confident they will fulfil the order, I've had similar experiences myself and always fulfilled.
    Lovely watch btw.
