THE WATCHERY

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 selection 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.

DISCOUNT WATCH STORE

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.

Watch Stores

To help you find the Best Watch Stores, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of The Watchery and Discount Watch Store.

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.

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!
