Ways to Purchase a Watch

Mar 15, 2008
Being in the market for a wrist watch is definitely worthwhile. The markets are flooded and you are likely to find every style within almost every bargaining range. Essentially, there are two options when it comes to obtaining this possession: in store and online. While one is more convenient than the other, you just have to ask yourself one question: Am I willing to risk quality and convenience for price?

In Store

Jewelry store and departments stores alike are plum full of watches. They carry every brand, with every certification, and they hold that no-so-wonderful retail price. The question remains, is it worth it?

Say you're in the market for a new watch. You have a fairly good idea of what you are looking for, but are still keeping your options open. As you browse the department store display cases, you see several that catch your interest. Since you are shopping in the store, you can try each of them on. And, even if they do all have a full price tag, you can compare them with each other, do the wrist shake and investigate them closely. The nature of the sale is focused on quality instead of price and you can clearly decide which one gives you exactly what you want -- in person. Plus, any certification (and/or return policy) is clear as day with an in person purchase.

Online Bargains

Taking this scenario a different route would bring you to a different conclusion. As you browse for watches on every bargain site available, you glare at the price. Not only must you have your price point in mind, but you must also have style in your thoughts. Rarely can you see detailed images of more than one watch at a time, limiting your ability to do any comparison shopping.

Finally, you find the watch of your dreams on an Amazon-like site. You inspect it in every view possible and even read the reviews. And, even though you couldn't try it on, you make the purchase knowing that you got a good deal. Remind yourself that the authenticity is not guaranteed to come along with the lower price tag.

Online Straight Shooters

Being pressed for time can be an issue, so purchasing your watch online may serve as a time saver. If this is the case, but you're not willing to give up quality, go directly to the producer of your favorite watch. Although you will more than likely pay full price, you're guaranteed to get the product you were hoping for. The only catch: be sure you know what you're buying when you start shopping around. Returning purchases online is a little hectic and you may end up spending more time doing it online than you would have in the store.

You clearly have options when it comes to your watch acquisition. Once you prioritize your needs, it will be time to buy a watch.
