Anyone had a BAD exp with prestigetime.com? - Page 3

post #31 of 47
+1 to Prestige Time being great. I've ordered from them once (a ladies Jaeger Reverso) that arrived with a discoloration on the dial. They accepted the return no questions asked and paid shipping both ways. Highly recommend any seller that takes care of a problem in this manner. Buy with confidence.

wow....that is some serious omega-porn. very nice!!!

I'm definitely enjoying my seamaster GMT from prestigetime.com, and have really only seen one storefront compete with their prices (a place in maryland, who will ship to avoid state taxes).

Figured i'd use this thread rather than creating a new one, but could anyone recommend a grey market/non authorized dealer who also offers a manufacturer warranty?
I'm after a JLC and have already tried Zeetan, however he doesn't have the particular model and won't source one due to the low US$ meaning his prices will be similar to the US dealers.

I've also had a look at prestigetime & authenticwatches, but niether of them offer a manufacturer warranty, at least not on the one i'm after.

Cheers

Bought from Zeetan Asked for New Watch Omega 45.5 Caliber 8500, Zeetan replied that watch is new never worn I received used watch or I could guess show room sample

No tags, missing plastic covers, scratch on the buckle ,Box is old dirty and with scratch marks inside and out Whole package was not up to cost of the watch with all fees and charges

$5K Yes it less than $6200MSRP but Look if you need NEW watch you should  buy from Authorized dealer NOT ZEETAN or other guys who got their watches god knows from where. I contact Zeetan asked him for discount for USED watch had no reply back, asked for NEW box after sending me another crappy box that was scratched all over the place He finally send me a NEW box thanks for MY $5K Don't kid yourself if you want piece of mind 100% authenticity 100% back up of Manufacturer buy from Authorized Dealer Otherwise it is just Gamble, some guys offer to return the watch but look do you want to stay without watch even used and money? plus to issue the refund is UP to dealer Who usually located half around the world In addition want to mentioned some other watch forums Watchnet .com for example is totally run by dealers and you hardly get any truthful information on them,  all complains about their dealers even grey one like Zeetan are watched very carefully and all threads that are expose them are being removed very quickly So Good Luck!

I ordered a watch which was nearly $1000. For this I got a watch with a dead battery and a missing warranty card which they said they would put in. I now have to get the battery replaced and have nothing to give as a birthday present. Spend a little extra and go to an authorized dealer, they are not an authorized Longines dealer. You get what you pay for and won't end up with a faulty watch which doesn't come with a warranty.

Another pleasant experience with prestige time. An associate called to confirm if I am okay with delay delivery because the watch was out of stock. The watch came in a few days later ahead of schedule. Also the pick up experience with FedEx is smooth. The watch is real. The only drawback is that it doesn't come with manufacturer warranty. But I am willing forgo that with the price saving. If some thing does go wrong you still have the warranty from prestige times.

Prestige Times is the real deal!biggrin.gif

You bought a $1000 watch and it takes batteries?

The Cartier Tank Solo has a quartz movement and costs $2475 at PrestigeTime.

Just b/c people are happy with this website, that does NOT mean the watches are not counterfeit.
You can not tell a fake unless you open it up, and even then it's very difficult.
My friend has had his fakes serviced by Torneau and they had no idea they were fakes.
The fakes are that good.

Is http://www.prestigetime.com/ the most common place for people to order luxury watches online?
