watchesbest.uk - any good/bad news?

Recommended Posts

So I'm after a particular watch (the Omega 007 Seamaster with bullet-barrell swirl) and after being disappointed with two trusted sellers saying that it is no longer in stock or being made, I found it here. 

Interestingly enough, they have a black variety for a higher price (I'd never seen the black version and wonder if it's a watch mod by replica maker) 

They then have a cheaper version of the watch with mineral glass (redacted)

I'm inclined to stay away from the cheaper version as I want a clone and my cheaper version rolexes seem to have fallen apart with poor links etc. 

Long story short, is this a company you'd do business with?

No. Its a scam site.

Stick with the TD's on here.

They are also selling at www.foreverwatch.uk I believe as they link to one another.

Jeezuz, it even looks like a scam site. 

One of the main reasons for joining a forum like this is to have access to Trusted Dealers - if  several TDs are telling you a watch is not available, it's unlikely they are lying - it's in their own interests to sell you a watch, so why lie ?

Well to me their site looks as legit as Trusty Time (which has to keep moving because their url gets seized). Also theonewatches.ru looks similar. I don't know how you can say that one site looks like a scam site while these others are comparable.

Potential Scam site. Regardless, If the TDS can’t get the watch nor can these.

Go and buy one. If you get the watch please let us know. If you don’t get the watch I guess you’re not gonna let us know anyway after the advice you’ve already been given.  Some people eh!

The difference between that and, sat Trusty Time is that TT changes web address and is hidden away, only accessible to those who know.

that site is pretending to be in the Uk by using pounds and a .uk address and it is packed with SEO terms to attract passing trade from Google searches. I would avoid it.

So do any of these sellers have stock or do they just contact the supplier/manufacturer?

May I respectfully suggest you read the links pinned to the homepage which thoroughly explain this and more.

These guys are fully legit. Great prices, great service and fast shipping too. 

They hold stock of all watches shown on their website.

Buy with confidence!

You're right, I know nothing. Go ahead and purchase several watches off that site, I'm sure you'll be delighted with what ever model you choose.

Out of interest, do they just take your money and never send the watch? Or do they just send a junk watch?

Why ask a stupid question if you don't want a stupid response. How can we possibly guess what a counterfeit watch site is going to do with any particular order?

Presumably, if it's a "known" scam site then someone must have tried to buy off it. If they have tried to buy off it, I'm curious to the results.

 

Are you literally just trying to +1 your post count, or what was your initial intention when clicking this topic?
