It's annoying that that particular shop doesn't have their own website to show their discounted Omegas and other watches or that Ogdens don't show them on their main website.

The pricing isn’t great. I’ve seen them cheaper from glycine direct on eBay.
Not any more...Ashfords has the 42mm bronze Subs(brown & black dial) on sale for $398.00...Glycine-Direct now has them for $499.00(brown, black, blue, & green dials)..just a month or so ago, I pd. $380.00 for the green dial & $430.00 for the blue dial from G-D...seems like they're trying to capitalize on their new found popularity..good hunting for all!!.. :)

So, now Gnomon is in on these Glycine deals..they're offering the green dial 42mm bronze Sub for $570.00..Ashford's still has the brown & black dial versions at $410.00 & Glycine-Direct has the green, blue, brown, & black dial versions at$499.00..
http://www.gnomonwatches.com/combat-sub ... ref-gl0281

Gnomon is also selling some of the other Combat Subs(like the Golden Eye) at higher prices than what you can get at Ashfords and Glycine-Direct, as well..

Had to google 220.12.41.21.02.002 :oops: They did have a few white dialed AT's not sure on the model numbers. The staff are all really helpful unlike the website. I would give them a ring im sure they would be able to help.

Something dodgy going on here - this same watch - same pictures, same serial number was sold on eBay in mid March for over £300, seller from Yorkshire. The gumtree seller is based in Croydon and says it’s still available and he’s selling to buy a new watch. No way he’s taking that hit on this watch in 6 weeks for no reason.

There have been a number of gumtree robberies reported where people have been robbed of cash when buying something. Not saying this is the case here, but use caution and the old advice, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is!

Ask the seller for a timed/dated photo to show they have it in their possession.

Spotted in Browns Family Jewellers, Harrogate, window (excuse crappy photos through window). Not exactly the model you’re quoting.

Had a look on their website but this is not listed. However, they’re discounting some of the other Golf models

Well that is certainly NOT a bargain! :lol:

The current RRP of the watch is not £5,250 it’s only £4,080
