Red Army Watches opens branch in PJ
« on: January 17, 2009, 10:17:30 AM »
Hi guys,
Those of you who travel often to Singapore may very well have heard of Red Army watches, a specialty watch retailer offering a wide selection of Russian and German watches.

Well they have recently opened a branch at Tropicana City in PJ. There's a nice review of their PJ outlet by Kelvin Tan.
I visited the place two weeks back and got myself a nice and simple German chronograph with a Russian hand wind movement for a very reasonable price. Will try to post some pics here as soon as I can.

They are having a store wide promotion with 15% discount on all watches, which makes it worthwhile to pay them a visit. Address as follows:

Red Army Watches KL
Lot L1-07 First floor
Tropicana City Mall
No. 3 Jalan SS20/27
47400 Petaling Jaya

Tel 60 017-6627738

Not sure if their watch pricing works like others but 15% is less than normal, where we get around 30% or more sometimes (except PAM)  ;D

Alvin,
You are absolutely correct. I already strongly expressed my opinion in this matter to the people there.
Please also complain about their discount policy if you do visit them.
However they do fill a unique market niche with some very interesting Russian and German watches. Most of their watches will fall in the RM 2,000 to 3,000 range after discount.

Scott,
Sure. If you can come by my office at Menara KH (formerly Menara Promet) by 5:30 pm then we can car pool there.

Alvin,
It would be great if you could join us there. Then we can really press them on the discount policy.  ;)

most of the brand selling by red army are not those high discount watch.... all this brand only selling in us and europe...
so 15% discount is quite reasonable.... better than buying it from internet... no risk and easier for warranty!

then i check the watch box and strap price.... cheaper than internet after discount!

Let me know when and I'll join you. Anyway they are expecting new shipment to come in after CNY. Apparently some of the new watches stuck at Customs.

I agree with you but it is still lots of fun haggling and pressing them for more discount. Usually if you press them hard enough they'll throw in the extra strap and round the numbers down for you.
