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.

About the repair
You did a beautiful job on my Ulysse Nardin 1846 watch. It look like new and I had forgotten what a pretty watch it is.

I found the box with my wife's watch on my desk this morning when I arrived. She'll be very excited, especially when she sees how shiny it is again. Thanks very much for your help during the process.

Your service is terrific! Every aspect of my inquiries was handled magnificently. I have nothing but praise. My Girard Perregaux watch looks new. I am so happy to have it back and IT IS KEEPING TIME WELL!

Outstanding service. I used the manufacturers' service for an earlier repair. It took a year and wasn't done right. You were quicker than initially promised and not only correctly fixed what was broken, but also sent it back running more accurately than when I bought it. I'll be recommending you to my friends!

From the beginning interaction with Govberg to the final interaction, I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of your company. Your process is flawless. When I need to have my watch serviced in the future I will be sure to send it back to your company. It has certainly been a pleasure dealing with you!
