Gents....

I've been hearing much speculation re: a 5-10% price increase being implemented on March 1st.

Obviously we'll find out soon enough but just wondered if anyone had heard anything in the UK or elsewhere?

To be honest I kinda hope Omega DO increase their prices: I've got my XL PO set aside at an AD already & the price was fixed at time of order so if retail prices do go up now it'll just be an even bigger bargain!!

To be fair I also think Omega's have long been underpriced when compared to Rolex's (& even Breitling & Cartier) the last few years.



Thoughts anyone??

The word is that Omegs will increase their prices by 7% from the 1st of March.

Thanks for that Brian....

So the current PO's (on steel) will list at £2,600....?

Still a relative bargain methinks when compared to the other big names.

I was at one of their boutique stores in Seattle, U.S. and the sales person said prices were going up here March 1st.

Word in North america is the same -- March 1st = Price increase...the LM will retail for $6000 USD (from 5700)

Omega will still be the best Bang for the Buck in all of Watches..

When you consider the Sub-c is $7150 -

I anticipate that Omega will get their prices up fast - I wouldn't be surprised if there were a few more price increases along the way...

sometimes people just WANT to buy expensive things...

look at fashion - how can a TOM FORD t-shirt really be worth $300???! But some people want it BECAUSE it cost $300..

I think that Omega has long been too modest in its pricing.

Once they shake off the Quartz era fiasco, Omega will spike...

Haven't heard. Maybe I need to swing into an AD for some midday lusting.

Do ADs increase the price of discontinues models also? I bought the Great White this summer NOS and the AD had an MSRP above 3,000 usd. It was much higher than the last production year msrp. So my 30% off really wasn't 30%off.
