    Ok rookie mistake involving his place of work but I think this lad is going to do well for himself in the future. He's recognised opportunity at very low risk and won. And who knows what else is in the future.You go for it kid. One day you can buy a Ultraman back when your stinking rich

    You do not fuck around with a Scandinavian's pickled herring. The employer would be hanged in the street by a mob of frenzied socialist extremists within minutes.

    He acquired the Ultraman on the net as we all did.He did not use his employment with Omega to buy the watch and cut out an Omega customer on this limited piece.It's his choice to now sell it at a profit.I see nothing wrong in his actions.Free Market forces.

    He is not even employed by Omega -- he works at an AD. An AD who likely sells other brands then just Omega.

    Aren't there some department stores in Japan that are Omega ADs? Wonder what people would think if one of the clerks from the lingerie department happened to land an Ultraman and then sell it.

    Since I am a glutton for punishment I decided to check out Urmaker Gjertsen in Bergen. Of course they have Omega displayed prominently by their front door. But when I painstakingly went thru their entire inventory, behold not a single damn Omega.
    I guess the AD orders Omegas for the pimple faced employees to buy and then allows them to sell on the street.
    But hey, whatever it takes.

    Are you just a troll? An AD cannot order that watch.

    You have to be trolling because about 15 people have pointed this out.

    So Lars called up Omega and ordered the watch? Just wanna make sure I get this. The Omega Authorized Dealer cannot get watches from Omega, but Lars the employee can? From what I am getting here, the AD received the Omega and Lars bought from the store stock. Am I wrong in assuming this?
    Maybe I am misunderstanding this deal. Did Lars acquire the watch through the AD he works at or did he get it somewhere else?

    You’ve made multiple derogatory and inflammatory comments about a young man you don’t know, you’ve twice prescribed violence as fitting, and you don’t have a clue what he actually did... ??? ::confused2:: even though many people have explained it in this thread and the process has been written about in multiple recent Ultraman threads... ::facepalm1::

    This is where it gets very tricky.

    In the UK we have restrictive selling laws and competition laws.

    Rolex is the best example to explain. You can walk in to any Rolex agent here in the UK, and buy a watch that you have had your name down on since the dawn of day, only to be told after you have paid for a watch that they will keep the cards for one year. Once you pay for something in full, you own 100% of it and everything that comes with it, that includes the cards.

    So, in short they are holding your property that they will not hand over that you have personally paid for and own outright. One guy quite local to me has threatened the local Rolex agent with legal action because of the cards, they soon handed them over.

    Rolex are trying to restrict the market with the sought after pieces etc thinking that it will stop the flippers, it simply wont, and never will!

    What happens is that watches are so sought after, they become so over inflated because people WANT to own that certain piece they will pay the current going rate for the piece which in turn fuels the grey market, the actual thing Rolex is trying to stop, by people flipping them for 3-4k.

    Instead or restricting them to market, make them easily available and they will kill the overs market dead in its tracks.

    One member on here has said they have all the fancy advertising on bill boards etc saying look how nice the new Pepsi is, what they fail to do is say its not available for the next 5 years.

    You can apply this to sought after cars, Porsche do the same, to buy ANY GT product you have to have had a track record of owning a GT product. One of my clients has just sold his company for £140m in cash and wants to splurge a little, Porsche wont supply him a GT because he has never bought a GT, but how is he supposed to buy a GT if he is simply not allowed in the first place, its all a vicious circle.

    What it needs is someone with balls big enough to say 'Fu*k you, I will see you in court' and actually follow through and sue them for everything they can.

    That day is coming i'm sure of it!

    If you own something, who is anyone to say what you can or cannot do with the property you own.

    I think this is a valid discussion.

    Maybe a bit dumb in posting it in his actual work, but his cash has bought it, he owns it, he is selling for rough market rate (currently).

    Yes, what sense does it make to sell something below market value when supply is low and demand is high??? Haha

    I just wrote that because the Ultraman discussion has covered all the bases, the guy is a turd but within his rights. I had not refreshed to see the most recent posts 4 and 6 minutes before mine, so I didn't see your post until after I posted. Now it's moved off topic to ones that are covered in another recent thread.

    You really have no clue even though it’s been stated about 15 times here.

    So I’ll state it again.

    The only way to receive the ST2 was to pre register for it on Omega’s website and it sold out in about 3 hours. NO AD can order it, no AD will receive one for sale. They are shipped to an AD or OB for delivery and they take payment for Omega.

    Hence this guy is just like every other flipper out there. He had no special advantage over anyone who is receiving one.
