5 Things to Consider When Buying a Designer Watch Online

by - Tuesday, May 14, 2013

How do you like your wrist watch? Do you like it with a thin strap, bold face, cute colour or understated? Designer watches come from fashion designers who have perfected the art of watch design. These are watches that look and fit better than other types, although they are usually a little expensive too. These watches are available for both sexes. Examples of designer watches for ladies include Nixon, fossil, Ice Watch, Jimmy Crystal and others. If you are planning to buy one online, here are a few things you must consider.

Fake or Not

These days, almost everything has been counterfeited. Therefore, you must be very careful when ordering for that Citizen Ladies Desire online. You need to familiarise yourself with the brand you are interested in so that you can spot a fake one. Some people try to offload their counterfeits by offering them on cheap prices/discounts, so you should be extra careful of discounted designer watches. Others just sell their fake stuffs at the genuine prices, so your ground work should be thorough enough. In fact, it is better to delay purchase if you are not certain a watch is genuine.

Price Comparisons

Although you should not expect designer watches to be dirt cheap, you should not be fleeced out of your heard-earned money either. You need to compare prices from several online vendors to ensure that you are getting a genuine item at a bargain. It is not uncommon to find a watch retailing at one site for £359 and at another site for £399 or more.

Watch Features

For some people, however, it is the features that matter. If you are shopping for a watch you have used before, then you do not have to worry about the features since you already know them. Otherwise, you should read customer and expert reviews to get a good idea on features available in different watches. This will help you shop for a wrist watch with high accuracy, calendar function, alarm function, or any other feature you may be interested in.

Style Considerations

The type of watch you wear shows your personality, so you should not buy one without considering your personal preferences and taste. No matter what the experts or other customers say about a brand, you are the one who will be wearing it, so you should make sure you are comfortable wearing it.


Even if you find a stylish designer watch that is affordable and has all the features you want in a wrist watch, you must still ensure it fits your wrist. Although a few watches can be resized, most designer watches cannot be altered, or even if they can be altered, they will lose their value and design integrity. Luckily, most watches are made to fit different wrist sizes. You can also measure your wrist size and order a watch that fits you nicely. There are different ways of taking this measurement that includes using a soft measuring tape among other methods. A size that can be adjusted upwards or downwards slightly is best.

These are some of the things that you must consider when buying designer watches online. You should also consider other things such as the integrity of the site, customer reviews, security of payment getaways and even the return policies of the vendors. That is the only way to get the watch you desire.
