Where To Buy Harley Watches
There are a number of places to browse or purchase Harley Davidson watches. If you want to touch and feel before you buy, your best bet is a local Harley retailer. There you can feel the quality, weight and comfort of the watches first hand. The drawback is that the selection is usually very small.
If you want to view the largest selection of Harley watches available, and are comfortable make decisions via website descriptions, photos and buyer feedback, I strongly recommend purchasing your watch online.
Here are some specific options for “where to buy” your Harley watch:
Amazon.com: The Amazon.com website has an inventory of just under 100 different Harley Davidson watch models, about 80% are men’s styles and 20% are women’s styles. The site includes multiple watch photos, images and buyer feedback.
Harley Davidson Official Website: The Harley Davidson company website provides information on about 25 models of Harley Davidson watches. Unfortunately, watches can not be purchased on the website itself and visitors are instructed to go to an in-store Harley dealership to make purchases.
Local Harley Dealer: Most local Harley Davidson dealerships have a retail store with Harley Davidson watches and accessories. In addition, local dealers often create their own online stores. To find yours, Google the name and location of your local Harley Dealer and see what listings are provided.
Ebay: Individual sellers on Ebay list Harley Davidson watches on a regular basis. A recent search uncovered just under 200 listings, some used some new. Since this is not an official retailer, you can not always determine if the purchases are official Harley merchandise or knock-offs. But, you can negotiate the prices and attempt to get a great deal.
Giving Gallery: The Giving Gallery website stocks about 20 Harley Davidson watch models and unlike other sites, actually has Harley product discounts and offers free shipping on orders $79 or more. Visit www.givinggallery.com.
