Online watch retail giant Time and Gems is offering online shoppers tips and tricks on how to properly select and buy a genuine Rolex watch online.
With the inundation of counterfeit Rolex timepieces on the market, it comes as no surprise that many people are weary about buying luxury items online without being able to see, feel and try it on. Although every Rolex watch that is sold through Time and Gems is genuine, buyers are urged to practice caution and to make a habit of asking for proof before making any purchases. Here are some things that buyers should look out for when buying Rolex watches online.
1.Request for the Authenticity Certificate
If the watch does not come with an authenticity certificate, it probably is not genuine. Buyers should practice caution when a retailer mentions that the certificate is not available and that they should take their word for it. Buyers should keep in mind that although the watch has a high price tag and comes from a well known site, it is not necessarily genuine. When it comes to Rolex watches sold through Time and Gems, every watch comes with an authentication certificate from the Horological Appraisal Group. This gives clients peace of mind when shopping for pre-owned Rolex watches at Time and Gems as the certificate proves the watch’s authenticity.
2.Request for the Watch’s Serial Number
Buyers should note that all Rolex watches have a unique serial number engraved on the back of the watch. This serial number can then be cross referenced with the one in the Rolex database. If the serial number tallies with the one in the database, along with the watch’s make and model, the Rolex is a genuine one. Should the online retailer refuse to give the buyer the aforementioned serial number, the watch is probably a counterfeit piece and buyers are urged to leave the site immediately.
3.Request for a Comprehensive Warranty
As with buying most pre-used items, it is always best to insist on a warranty that will cover any irregular wear and tear. Because most buyers are usually unfamiliar with their pre-owned Rolex watch’s history, there is no telling what could happen down the road. Hence, buyers should insist on a warranty every time they purchase a luxury timepiece online. Clients of Time and Gems will be pleased to know that all watches purchased through them come with a comprehensive two-year warranty.
4.Request for More Information
Buyers are urged to do their research before investing in something as costly as a Rolex watch. One of the main things to read up on is the differences between the Rolex collections. What many buyers fail to realize is that many Rolex watches are made for a specific type of personality in mind. For example, the Rolex Sea Dweller was engineered for divers and would be the perfect addition to the wardrobe of someone who enjoys deep sea diving. If buyers are unsure about which Rolex watch collection would best suit their lifestyle, they are encouraged to get in touch with one of Time and Gems’ experts to make an enquiry and find out more.
One of the most popular Rolex collections is the Datejust collection. Buyers will be pleased to know that many watches from this collection will be on sale during Time and Gems’ 4th of July wholesale event, one of which is the Ladies' Rolex Stainless Steel Black Mother of Pearl Diamond Dial Beadset Bezel Datejust (Item #1382)
