When you sell designer & name brand watches, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Let’s take a closer look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the last year, Watchsavings has received about 9,900 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 1% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though Watchsavings is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers. They also stand behind the products they sell with up to a 30-day money back guarantee. Watchsavings will also repair watches that you purchase from them for a period of 1-5 years (depending on the brand and style).
Watchsavings is a company based out of Brooklyn, NY. They have been in business since 1985. For those wondering if Watchsavings is legit – I think that sort of longevity answers that question. You definitely can’t stay in business for over 30 years by selling counterfeit watches.
Watchsavings has had a file with the Better Business Bureau since 12/28/2005. Currently, they have an A rating with the BBB.
You may be wondering how they are able to sell watches for below the average retail price. Let’s dig a bit deeper and find out.
Watchsavings is not an authorized dealer for the watches that they sell. What does that mean, and how does it affect you?
An authorized dealer basically means that the seller is buying the merchandise directly from the original manufacturer or main distributor. When you purchase from an authorized dealer, you are entitled to the full manufacturer’s warranty – which is the main benefit obtained when you purchase from an authorized seller.
However, being an authorized dealer also means having to purchase watches in bulk lots – something that smaller stores and seller can’t afford. The way of getting around this issue is to purchase smaller amounts of inventory from an authorized dealer, or main distributor. It’s actually a win-win for everybody, as the authorized dealer is able to purchase more, and obtain a higher bulk discount, and then sell that inventory to other sellers at a cheaper price.
Since the non-authorized seller is not bound by minimum price guidelines set by the manufacturer, they are free to choose their own selling price. By doing this, they are able to pass the savings on to the customer, and sell their watches well below the average retail price.
Win-win for everybody right? Well not necessarily.
The only downside of this, is that when you purchase from a non-authorized dealer, you aren’t entitled to the original manufacturer’s warranty. In this case, with Watchsavings, that isn’t really an issue, as they provide you with a 1-5 year seller warranty, and do all repairs in house – so you’re covered anyways.
Please note: Your watch probably won’t come with a warranty card, or an authorized dealer’s stamp. That is normal when purchasing from a non-authorized dealer.
Watchsavings does have a 30-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having a month to do so is quite convenient.
You’re also covered by the A-to-z guarantee if the seller does not communicate with you, and/or does not resolve any issues that you may have. In my experience though, you won’t need it – Watchsavings is very quick to respond. And their 99% positive feedback level is a testament to that.
Unlike many other sellers online, Watchsavings does not charge a restocking fee for returned items. Most sellers online charge a restocking fee anywhere between 15% to 20%. That’s not much for a $10 item, but when you’re buying a watch that costs a few hundred dollars, it really does make quite a difference.
