Hong Kong. It is virtually impossible to go anywhere in this city without bumping into a watch shop of some description, whether it’s one of the many branches of City Chain, the plethora of shops in Central, TST and Causeway Bay, or a brand boutique (kudos to Vacheron, Omega and Franck Muller in Causeway Bay for being open at 11pm on New Years Eve). The city loves its watches, whether it’s haute or hot pink. When a watchnerd/ WIS visits Hong Kong, one question seems to always pop up – where are the pre-owned and vintage watch shops? Google searches and going through watch fora and blogs only brings up a dozen or so places so I thought, on my recent trip there, that I’d try to compile as comprehensive a list as possible as a resource. In all cases I visited each place to verify its existence, but I ran into problems with one or two places which a) had no opening hours; b) were never open when I walked past, even when I made repeated attempts at random times of the day.

Actually I have never had a proper watch. Now after backpacking around Australia I have managed to save enough money to purchase myself one decent watch. Most presumably it will be the only high-end watch that I can ever afford. Anyway I really started to like the new big size PO with orange bezel and Omega 8500 movement.

“One of the best days in watches.” These are some of the phrases used to describe our afternoon watch shopping in Hong Kong. And these statements are all the more powerful coming from guys who look at and write about watches all day, not to mention that we had just come from Watches & Wonders 2015, where we got to play with and photograph all the Richemont Group brands’ haute novelties.

What, then, got us so excited about these dingy little watch stores with hand-written price tags? Come along as aBlogtoWatch explores the cluttered streets and hidden watch stores of Hong Kong... DeskDivers.com - Hong Kong Watch Shopping Guide. Modern watch purchases...

Well you cant usually go wrong with buying new in Hong Kong as there is almost always some discount to be had even on the already tax free prices. Whilst this discount seems to be slowly eroding over time, typically Rolex and Tudor is 5% (was 8% in 2008 and 10% in 2007), Omega 10%, Breitling 25% (30% in 2009) etc etc. The Boutique shops wont discount at all (like any Boutique in any city in the world) so look for a normal AD. Limited and hard to find watches are usually not discounted at all, so don’t expect to get a discount on something like a stainless steel Daytona, in fact we would be very surprised if you even found one at an AD.

One thing we have noticed is that locals and those with strong haggling skills can improve on the standard discounts, but many (most!) The RGM 801 Corps Of Engineers Watch With Enamel Dial.
