Buying watches online now offers convenience since there more and more e-commerce sites and e-sellers available for you. With this idea in mind, ordering your next good timepiece boils down to your astute consideration of the pros and consequences of doing it. The question now is do you know what really means of clicking that “buy” button?
Know exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, you know what type of watch you like. However, being firm or having certain limits on what to buy can save you from wasting time online or spending money on an expensive throwaway item.
Searching alone on google can give you a lot of pages of choices. And this does not only mean decision fatigue but the possibility of falling to a bait that you may buy a watch that you actually right for you. So offline or online, think first the range of watches you like to own. Know exactly what you are looking for. Are you into vintage or modern, digital or analog, sports or dress watch? Is it okay for you to buy a new or second hand one?
Do your research. Buying watches online is a relief not only for busy folks but any watch aficionados. Imagine if there are no watch stores or sellers in the cyberspace, people need to do traditional tours in malls or establishments to find their precious timepieces. Not only that, you can negotiate with different individuals all at the same time. And this can give you leeway to get the price you like or pick the best for you.
On the other side, research is an important key in buying watches online safely. What seems friendly or harmless seller is actually offering you a fake, stolen, low class, damaged or mismatched watch. Remember some people pose different personas behind their computers and they do whatever it takes to lurk. So better check reviews, choose legit companies, and deal with authorized watch dealers.
Mind the fine print. Not all bad transactions are because of sellers, sometimes it’s because of buyers being carefree. There are sellers who are transparent that they can’t do the delivery, the watch is second hand or slightly damaged, they impose “no return policy” or their warranty have some limitations. However, no matter detailed they become in their fine print if buyers don’t read and analyze it causes problems for both parties.
Thus, it’s good for buyers to check every detail of the watch other than its look in the photo, price tag, and package. If its head-scratching to purchase timepieces from brick and mortar stores, what more in buying watches online? It’s also rare that it’s easy to have a replacement or refund payment from online sellers. Furthermore, it’s also difficult to point out problems in watches not until buyers personally holding them.
Be very picky who to trust. A reliable or trusted company and brand should be factors in narrowing down your choices. Authorized and trusted companies don’t want to mess with their customers to keep their reputation and business robust. They also like to have smooth sailing transactions to avoid expenses in returned items or pacifying irate customers.
A good consideration in choosing sellers is to check if they have brick and mortar stores and offices to visit. Of course, it’s great if you can visit their stores personally.
Avoid misconceptions, assumptions. Apart from not reading the fine print, another tip to note is to avoid old and common misconceptions in buying watches online. An example of this is giving much weight to the price of a watch. Not all affordable watches are fake so not all expensive watches are genuine. It was also safe not to assume that luxury watches have the same prices. You can buy more affordable ones from a reputable watch store if you do research.
While it’s convenient and valuable to buying watches online, it still ideal to do more than one layer of research online and offline. It also great if you still check the timepieces you like to buy personally before you purchase. Check the Tempus, they have a great masterpiece of different brands of a watch through their online store.
