This year another man in the bar wanted to sell me the same model for 1000 Baht. When I said I have already one he said he would give it to me for 500 Baht.
Rolex had Quartz watches.

Last year, I bought a Seiko automatic and the auto mechanism failed after a few months. Took it back and paid B300 to have it looked at (as not guaranteed) failed again shortly afterwards...
Mrs C bought a second-hand (no pun intended!) watch which also died after a short while.
Mrs C took both watches to a proper jeweler in HH who bought them both back to life and also provided a 1 year guarantee written on one of his repair tickets.
He confirmed that the B4000 I paid was the right price for the Seiko. Even though the s/steel bracelet was wrapped in plastic, I'll never know if the watch itself was actually new...
There are so many watches in the CA shop that maybe he buys them in bulk and doesn't know which ones actually work?
