Buying men's watches on sale is one of the best ways of grabbing a watch bargain, however as genuine sales only take place two or three times a year, does that mean you must wait if it’s not that time of year? Not at all. There are many ways of getting a watch bargain even if the sales are not on and we’ll share three those ways with you in this short article.
Before you hand over your cash if your buying in a shop, or press the “Buy Now” button if you’re looking online, there are a few basic matters you must ensure. The matters are neatly and helpfully listed as three points in the following video :-
To recap the video, ensure the retailer your buying from is based in the UK. If you buy from a UK based company you’re more likely to have a point of contact if something goes wrong or you want to return the watch. If you buy from someone abroad you may also find that after paying your money, the watch you bought is not the real thing.
Also, ensure the retailer is an authorised dealer, as only authorised dealers that can offer a valid manufacturers warranty. Manufacturers will not honour warranties from unauthorised dealers. Unauthorised dealers might sell imported watches not intended for the UK market which is also likely to invalidate the warranty.
Finally, if buying online, ensure the seller has the watches in stock. This will ensure that you receive your watches in a timely fashion and that your details are not being passed to someone else to fulfil the order. Although there are many authorised dealers, I am comfortable giving you the following link.
So how can you get a watch bargain outside of the sales period?
How about searching the web, Google Products is usually a good place to start. Look for the lowest prices and then contact the seller to make sure they satisfy the points mentioned above. Don’t be too hung up by reviews, providing they meet the minimum discussed above, they will have been vetted by the brands themselves to ensure they hold good stocks and provide good service.
How about price comparison websites? Again ensure the sites you get to meet the minimum points mentioned above . If they don’t meet the minimum requirements above, don’t be tempted even if the price is the lowest. Just take a note of the website and price and ask an authorised dealer to match it. At worst an authorised dealer will only say no. If they say no, ask them to meet you half way. Again, at worst, they can only say no!
Finally, why not just contact the shop or website if they have any voucher codes going or if they will give you a percentage off.
Of course, there are lots of methods of getting a watch cheaper, but we’re sure you have already tried them.
Remember, don’t focus just on the price. Make sure you are comfortable with the shop or online store and ask yourself are these people going to help me if i need after sales care. Otherwise, focusing just on price may turn out to be a false economy.
