Companies that treat NZ like some far flung corner of the Galaxy when deciding on their distribution systems.
Example: I'm currently in the process of buying a Seiko Astron watch. I could buy it overseas, but since I will be getting it tax free here en route out of the country, I would rather support a NZ business with the associated warranty benefits etc.
Of the 2016 Astron models, there was one (titanium with black face/bezel if relevant!) which I asked the dealer to price. He reported back that that model "was not available in NZ" and that if I wanted that model, I could have it in 4 other dial colours but not black. I could buy the black one from Amazon or several other retailers on line in the USA, or from online retailers in Japan, or in Singapore. However, I cannot have one in NZ from a main Seiko dealer because someone in Japan has decided that model will not be sold in NZ...!
They will then be the first to complain when potential customers buy overseas.
In the end I opted for a different model, which will still have to be imported by the dealer from Japan as there are none in NZ, but the dealer says that should not be a problem as he has sold that model before.
That sort of thinking is just self-limiting foolishness on the part of Seiko - which, for a company that makes some of the finest watches on the planet - is a shame.
I collect 1/64 scale diecast and asked my local Toyworld if they could source some from the New Zealand supplier.
The New Zealand supplier said they were not bringing in the majority of my items because they did not sell well in New Zealand ... which may have been acceptable if the entire line wasn't brand new for 2016 (ie, it did not exist in 2015)
In the end I opted to order in from eBay and other online stores ..
