Suggestions on Where to Buy.
More and more brands are opening up either their own e-commerce websites or are aurthorizing their dealers to sell watches online. These are often the safest places to buy watches on the Internet, and the watches will come with fully factory warranties.
We recommend that you always check those places first. Anyone uisng Google to look for watches to buy online will tend to come up with many options.
We recommend buying through authorized dealers or other reputable sites. While often "at your own risk," sites like eBay and Amazon offer good selections as well. For used, rare or unique watches eBay is a "must check" before almost any purchase... there are often items no one else has, and some of the best deals can be found there.
We also profile watch stores around the world where you can expect the best in selection and service. Take a look at our continuing Watch Stores series.
