Buying Omega Watches Online-Beware!

There are several online retailers that sell Omega watches but you have to be very careful if you want to buy Omega watches on the Internet. The internet is replete with watch retailers who sell fake/imitation watches for the price of the real stuff, and you may not even know that it is fake until maybe it is too late.


One of the best places to buy authentic luxury Omega watches on the internet is to buy with Amazon.com, and buying on this website does not necessarily mean buying with any of the hundreds of independent retailers on this website.
Take note of the following points:

  • Buy directly from Amazon itself(All the watches in this write up are linked directly with Amazon and not with any of their retailers)
  • Amazon.com guarantees that these Omega watches are genuine and authentic with an Amazon.com guaranty of between 2 to 5 years on Omega watches bought directly from them.
  • Although Amazon.com admits that it is not an authorised dealer of Omega watches (Omega forbids it’s dealers from selling online) Amazon.com will give you their own guaranty in cases where the manufacturers’ guaranty does not apply for the Omega watch. Click Here to read it from their website.
  • If you buy directly from Amazon.com you will save yourself a lot of money because the Omega watches sold on Amazon.com are sold at prices far below that of offline Omega Authorised dealers. That is less money for the same high quality.
  • Omega watches bought on Amazon.com comes with a strong after sales service to repair or change any faulty or defective wristwatches within the bounds of the warranty clause. There is even a money back guaranty if you do not like the Omega watch that you bought and would like to return it.

Keep it in mind that these watches are extremely high quality luxury watches, they do not come cheap but they have strong emotional, material and brand value. They can last for generations where the children and maybe the grandchildren will get to use it.

Buy on Ebay.

You can always get your money back from Paypal or Ebay, so just get it checked and be dillligent and you can reap large savings. If you can't spot/investigate a fake, maybe you shouldn't be buying a luxury watch.
