3. Look for a reputable dealer.
So you’ve decided on a watch – you’ve just got to figure out where to buy it.While you may find it at a much cheaper price from an independent seller on eBay, the safety of purchasing a watch from an established dealer far outweighs the cost. Some questions you’d want to ask:
- Is the seller in the business of selling watches?
- How many years have they been in operation?
- Do they have reviews and good feedback?
- How much information can they give you about the watch?
- Can they give an authenticity warranty?
- Can they do repairs and maintenance in the future?
A retailer who has a brick-and-mortar shop or showroom is most preferable. There, you can inspect the watch in person, fiddle around with it a bit, and ask questions from the salespersons.
