Buying a Watch

*/?>

With the advancement and omnipresent nature of the internet in today’s society one can find nearly any type of product or service desired, and in most cases these can be obtained at a discounted price. Watches are no stranger to this trend. If you are considering the purchase of a fine timepiece it is absolutely imperative that you research from whom you are purchasing your new watch. Although there are many reputable and trustworthy dealers online, there are many more businesses operating in a manner which can be politely deemed as much less professional. Consider the following when purchasing a timepiece online:

  • Do your research. If you find predominantly negative, or even no reviews about the business in which you are considering, you probably should not deal with them.
  • Genuine Swiss timepieces are true works of art, and like any other product of quality they will most likely be very expensive. If you happen to find the watch of your dreams for a price that is too good to be true, it probably is.
  • A new, genuine Rolex for less than a few thousand dollars is in fact not a new, genuine Rolex. This principle stands true for nearly every brand of Swiss timepieces. Don’t ever forget this advice.
  • Premium timepieces should only be purchased from authorized dealers, in person if possible. Information about these dealers should be easily found within the timepieces’ manufacturer’s websites, as manufacturers provide locations for all authorized retail locations.

I want to thank you for sending me a new watch. Or, maybe you made it look like a new one! Earlier this year, I sent the watch to the Cartier facility in Texas and they came back with estimates for needed repairs in a sort of laundry list — with no real explanation as to why a specific part needed replacement. I had them return the watch.  I appreciated the detail you gave as to why something needed to be done. Should the occasion arises in future, I will most certainly recommend your firm. Thank you.
