I'm in EU. Price in EUR is the highest. At least don't need to pay VAT, which is 20%. In USD I would pay least. But probably if I choose USD, I would need to pay VAT. At least it would be like this. Probably it's the same with GBP. So I pay in EUR.

I am also in the EU but I pay in GBP as it works out cheaper and I haven't had to pay any VAT or duties from CW.

I'm as skint as s skint person on National Skint Day at the moment so my 25th CW watch will have to wait a lot longer. Im also spending money on the house for long overdue upkeep so I'm living hand to mouth at the moment. We are living in very challenging times I dont remember things like this in my lifetime. All the green taxes as well are really screwing us but that is where we are being forced to go with heat pumps, electric cars and big green levies. Methane is the next big tax coming. Anyone who eats red meat is in for a shock

Sorry im rambling and musing over all the price rises going on.
