While NNs used to turn up during the year the new method seems to be to hold on to them and sell them as part of the sales in January and July. Generally the Forum gets alerted first and at times we have even been allowed to view the watches before the sale starts so we can determine what models we want to buy when it opens.

Ahh, I see. Thanks for clarifying! Looks like I narrowly missed out having joined in Feb!

So the EU puts a tax on things coming from the US and the US puts none on goods from EU? That's hard to believe, but if it's true, then I know where I'm not buying products from any more.

Plenty of tax on the way into China. They will protect their own industries. Clever.
