Time and Gems has recently announced that they are offering online shoppers free tips on how to properly choose a pre-owned Rolex watch.
With over 30 years of experience in the luxury watch retailing market, Time and Gems’ (http://www.timeandgems.com) tips are priceless to consumers. Buyers are advised to consider these tips when shopping for a luxury timepiece online.
Whether the buyer is shopping at Time and Gems or at another online retailer, the same tips should be kept in mind to ensure that fraud and disappointment do not take place. With the myriad of imitation Rolex watches on the market, buyers must be careful and take every precaution to ensure that what they buy is the real deal. Here are some tips on what to pay attention to when shopping for a pre-used Rolex watch.
1. Authenticity Certificate
No matter which website the buyer shops at, he or she must insist that the Rolex watch be accompanied by an authenticity certificate. If the retailer refuses to produce one, the buyer can assume that the retailer is trying to pass off an imitation Rolex watch as the real thing and the retailer should be avoided at all costs. Time and Gems makes things very simple for their clients and ensures that every Rolex watch purchased comes with an authenticity certificate and unique serial number from the esteemed Horological Appraisal Group of America. This appraisal certificate verifies the watch’s authenticity and retail value. In addition to that, all Rolex watches sold through Time and Gems are thoroughly inspected by the company’s in-house team of Rolex-certified master watchmakers before going on sale.
2. Rolex Watch’s Serial Number
Many buyers do not realize that each Rolex watch is allocated a unique serial number by Rolex. Found between the lugs on the 6 o’clock side of the casing, the first letter of the serial number indicates the approximate year of manufacture. Each Rolex watch is also allocated a model number, which can be found between the lugs on the 12 o’clock side. These numbers can be cross referenced with the numbers found in the Rolex database to verify if the watch is an original piece.
3. Be Wary of Online Transactions
Buyers should pay attention to the website’s security when it comes to online transactions. Credit card fraud happens more often than it should and buyers need to pay attention to every little thing when keying in their credit card and personal information. Buyers who shop at Time and Gems are guaranteed a safe and secure shopping experience. Boasting secure socket layer (SSL) technology, Time and Gems ensures all customers that the checkout process is encrypted and credit card information is never stored or held. Additionally, each credit card is reviewed by the company’s credit card security department and all information is verified before the watch is shipped to ensure the legitimacy and consent of the cardholder.
