Why would Oregon be cheaper ? Once you declare at border it work out to the same taxes.

I bought both by cash at different times from lugaro and MC.

You won't get 50% off a new Rolex anywhere. Maybe other brands yes

I bought my previous Omega Planet Ocean for a little over $2k on orange band in Oregon, and an Oris Titan C Small seconds for $800 on a different trip.

I dunno, seems like a better deal than what I was offered in Seattle. Yes, there are pretty slim discounts for Rolex of course, but my Milgauss GV was about $2k cheaper at the AD in the USA.

Yes do not buy a PO since the new liquid metal is the new hotness. This is why I sold mine a few days after it was announced at basil

I'm wondering how limited the PO Liquid Metal really is. The ceramic bezel is something I believe every diver should have, though it may be limited to the more upscale models. My orange one was aluminum from what I recall, which was another selling point (for me to sell it that is!).

I might pick one up when they start showing up used and cheaper in a few years :-P

Hey guys I'm new on watches. I want to purchase my first watch.
Budget is around $150-$300.

Where is the best/cheapest place to buy one? Online? States? The Bay?

For that budget, States is usually cheaper.

+1 for Eco Drive.
I love Seiko, but Eco-drive looks more professional and classy.
