Last night's 50th Anniversary celebration of the Moon Landing. Unfortunately, not very many watches on display at all. Perhaps more interesting was the Speedies that turned up on wrists.

May i check with SMP owners (2500D), is your watch gain/lose time?

I have owned 1 for almost a year, have been wearing it on & off. I notice mine has been +1-+3 a day consistently, but on recent becomes -3 seconds a day.. is this normal?

-3 probably nothing to worry about...could just be low power reserve.
iirc only the 8xxx and above can maintain accuracy even with low power reserve.

Oh I have tried to wound it too, but seems same... Just not sure whether it's normal to go from gaining to lose time or something is wrong... And also I actually prefer to gain a bit rather than losing time...

Any sifus here mind sharing your experience buying watch online from overseas? Particularly on the customs tax part.

What should I do to ensure my watch doesnt get hold up at customs? And if it does gets hold up, what should I do? How much exactly should I be preparing to put aside for tax if the value of my watch is around RM7,000.00?

Just got myself a Steinhart from Watchlounge, Bern few months ago.
They shipped it via Fedex, regards the custom tax I guess it depends on your luck whether the officer wanted to tax on your item or not.

For Fedex they will pay your custom tax for clearance and you can pay them back at the time you collect your watch from them.

I am not so sure about how much they will tax on watches but for my case is around 6% of the declared value.

E.g: RM 7000 x 0.06 = ~RM 420

If it's by EMS. You'll need to contact poslaju n hire them to clear customs for u. They will need the invoice. Service charge is rm50. But service is damn slow. Took about 2 weeks to clear mine. After that incident. I'll go n collect myself at lcct hub.

Thanks guys for the input. Gosh, 6% is quite steep. Could’ve used that money to service a watch already lol

I can give you my AD fella and you can make the comparison.

Grey is definitely cheaper, but you forsake the warranty support and the buying experience. If you buying the speedy with that big ass box, you will also likely to incur higher shipping cost and tax.

If it's just watch alone cheaper.

If you just want a Steinhart, gnomon have a physical shop is in SG. You can get it cheaper without shipping and can claim back the GST also.

Yes. Would appreciate if you could pm me your AD fella. Was reason why I want to compare the difference in price with grey market. Not worth if difference is minimal.
