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.
The Watchery is an online watch retailer in business since 1997 that advertises guaranteed authentic watches at bargain prices. Clearly authenticity is a priority at The Watchery, as they address the issue in several ways on the main page. They specifically offer a "shop with confidence, 100% guaranteed" policy to put customers at ease.
Categories across a menu bar include men's watches, women's watches, best sellers, diamond watches and a sale/clearance category. On the left hand side there is a menu where you can choose a watch by brand, color, movement type, case size, band color or other criteria, making it very easy to quickly pinpoint the kind of watch you are looking for. There are hundreds of brands and thousands of watches available; the
seems endless and was quite a bit more extensive than other similar online watch retailers. Each product shows the MSRP price and the discounted price you will pay if your order online from The Watchery.
From our comparison, we found that prices were competitive with other discount online watch retailers. Shipping is free for any order (no minimum purchase) and they offer a 2 day shipping option for $5.00. Additional expedited shipping is available.
All watches from The Watchery come with a warrantee based on the brand of watch. Basically it is just an extension of the warrantee that you would get if you bought from the manufacturer directly. The list of brands is easy to find and you can quickly determine exactly what your warrantee will include.
The return/refund policy is fairly decent. You have 30 days to return any unused, undamaged merchandise as long as the watch is in its original condition and you have the original packaging and documentation. You have to call a customer service representative to get a return number to include, and you must pay for return shipping, but otherwise you can return an unwanted product for any reason.
With a massive selection, easy to use website, good return policy and competitive prices, The Watchery is a great place to shop for name brand watches.
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?
