Get Your Next Watch from World of Watches! Outside of meeting all of our busy deadlines and appointments, fashion and the latest trends are the leading force in what most of us are wearing around our wrists.

But, if you take the time to walk around the mall or go to expensive jewelry stores you'll find that most offer a very limited selection of watch brands and styles. Also, prices seem to be fixed across all the stores and sales are limited to clearance items and damaged goods.

Discount Watch Store

DISCOUNT WATCH STORE Visit Site

Cost:

From $11.95 to $4,999

The Discount Watch Store (or DWS) is an online watch retailer in business since 2002. They advertise authentic watches at guaranteed lowest prices and back that up with an A+ Better Business Bureau rating. They also offer more ways to pay than other similar sites. You can pay with a credit or debit card of course, but there are also links to pay by PayPal, through an Amazon account, or via the Google checkout service. All of this gave us a good, customer friendly first impression.

The website itself is much like other online retail stores. The main page is dominated by "featured brands" and watches, most of which appear to be last minute sales with eye catching discounts. On the left hand side there is a menu where you can choose a watch by brand, gender, or type of watch such as gold, diving, atomic, etc. The variety of brands is large, but not quite as extensive as some of the other watch retailers we have reviewed. Each product shows the suggested retail price and then the discounted price you will pay if your order online from DWS. The checkout system is typical and easy to use and the prices seemed competitive with other discount watch retailers.

Shipping is free for any order with no minimum purchase requirement. They also offer a 2 day shipping option for free for purchases $150 and up. For more expedited options, shipping charges ranges from $5.95 to $19.95.

The return/refund policy is better than some other sites reviewed. Customers have a lengthy 90 days to return any unused merchandise as long as it is undamaged and in its original packaging. All watches come with a warrantee based on the brand of watch. Basically these warrantees are extensions of the what comes from the manufacturer directly. The list of brands is easy to find and you can easily determine the details of your warrantee based on the brand of watch you purchased.

Discount Watch Store has a simple, user friendly website, a large selection and a return policy that beats that of most competitors. We feel it would be an excellent choice for anyone looking to purchase a watch or watches online.

Princeton Watches

PRINCETON WATCHES Visit Site

Cost:

Starting from $85.00

Self-proclaimed as one of the largest and oldest watch retailers on the web, with many thousands of satisfied customers, Princeton Watches is an authorized dealer of brand-name new watches. From a shopping experience, the Princeton site is hard to maneuver, out dated and frustrating to get around, especially if you are watch shopping without a specific brand in mind.

Too much drill down and non-intuitive searching bogs down the shopping functionality. Searching by style or price proved to be slow, difficult and not the fluid experience that online shoppers have come to expect from quality sites.

On the positive side, Princeton Watches offers free shipping, live, professional customer service and a very clear, up-front return policy. We liked the fact Princeton Watches doesn't have a "restocking fee" on returns. They also boast of having a big, in-stock inventory with fast shipping.

While the actual shopping experience of this site is not anything to get excited about, if you have a specific brand in mind you can feel confident about purchasing through Princeton based on their track record, reasonable pricing and buyer-friendly return policy.

Overall, due to site functionality and lack of professionalism this regard we put this watch store on the bottom of our list.

For those price-sensitive shoppers, and those looking for something unique, finding a good deal and a new look are more of a challenge.

Instead of buying at traditional stores, many savvy shoppers are turning to online watch stores to meet their selection and price needs. When looking at online watch stores, there are a number of features to consider before spending your time and money making a purchase. Some of these include:

  • Selection.  Some stores offer thousands of watches, while others keep few in stock. You'll want to shop at a store where the selection is large enough to find what you're looking for.
  • Price.  Prices can vary greatly between online stores. Some offer more incentives to purchase than others.
  • Return Policy.  After making your selection and receiving the watch, are you going to be able to get your money back if you're not satisfied?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best watch stores available today. We hope these reviews help you with your next watch purchase!
