    Hi All,

    Working in Singapore for the next few weeks, and hoping to find a Speedmaster Reduced while I'm here...

    Any recommendations of places to try?

    Thanks!

    Simon

    You may want to check out Shawn at http://www.heirloom2.com/Newadditions_index.htm (closed on Mondays)
    He had a few Reduced Speedies when I last visited in late Jan 2020, so hope you find something there.
    Shawn's got alot of other stuff too, so always fun to visit. Have fun!

    Depending on how well you can spot a fake, there are a lot of grey market Omegas on Carousell. Local market; not just for watches.

    If I may stay away from Bonfield watches, they sell a few cool watches but the guy is a bit hit and miss. He damaged one of my watches when he serviced it

    Can I recommend that you stay well away from the coronavirus that is gripping the far east. A international company ( indeed ) here in Dublin allowed its 1000 plus staff work from home a couple of days this week because one of its staff had visited Singapore and stayed in a hotel where another visitor tested positive for coronavirus.

    Have to agree. My Concord Delirium back wind went in for a routine battery change and came out dead. Was told watch was not working in the first place. I was wearing the watch the whole time with no issues prior to handing it over. Had the gall to charge me for a new battery as well. Now I have a gold paperweight - albeit a very light one:(.

    Try Martinluxury. Address : 390 Victoria Street, Golden Landmark, #02-44, S(188061). Was there last week and saw a few Reduced at less than Sing$3,000. Also a solid gold Reduced watch and bracelet. Very good service and no pushy sales persons. You can bargain for cash payments.

    Peter, thank you sir for your insight. I am from Singapore and there is much rumor mongering. Over here we are not dropping off like flies:). Singapore has a large migrant work force and people are returning from the Chinese New Year holidays so infection is inevitable but avoidable. Prudence is of course paramount with good sanitary practices: frequent use of hand sanitisers, face masks (have heard conflicting views on this), avoiding crowded areas and keeping hands off public hand rails, etc. Life is going on as usual though there was the initial panic like food and essentials hoarding. That has settled and we are just more careful than usual, as an example, thermal temperature devices at the airport arrival terminals. If anyone is visiting have a pleasant stay.

    Stay well brothers and sisters.
