Last time I bought a watch - a Tissot, with some specific functions I wanted - I did so from a UK vendor. who had to get the watch shipped to them from Switzerland, then ship it back to me at my French address. Was something like 30% cheaper than anywhere I could find it in CH, so the sorts of reductions the OP is seeing don't surprise me in the least.

I never quite understand why anyone visiting CH would choose to buy a watch here, when the same item is almost always going to be cheaper elsewhere. Then again, I don't really get the idea of expensive or flashy watches per se. , so clearly there's something I'm missing there.

My immediate reaction, would not be particularly exciting by these, but everyone to their own...
It's a watch - it's not going to be "exciting" whatever the brand name is.
