Why buy from an authorised watch dealer

As with any piece of jewellery, buying a watch can be an exciting yet complicated endeavour. At Jura Watches, we try to make this process as simple and as enjoyable as possible, while also keeping you protected from common issues encountered from unauthorised dealers.

Get your money's worth

We know how important value is to you, therefore it is equally important to us. When looking for an authorised dealer for brands such as Tag Heuer, Breitling or Longines, you want to know that you’re getting great value, but also everything you’re entitled to as a customer.

Avoid Grey Market traders

Many Grey Market dealers acquire watches through back channels, often unwilling to explain where they come from. In short, they are not officially authorised to sell them. You could be purchasing unauthentic, fake, or even stolen goods without knowing. Grey Market dealers advertise watches for sale largely through online auctioning or selling websites, but can also be found to have their own company brand. Always make sure you’re buying from an authorised dealer like Jura Watches; while you might save yourself some pocket change from an unauthorised dealer, you lose out on everything that comes after the sale, starting with your warranty. The seller may describe the watch as coming with a manufacturer’s warranty, they may even have the paperwork and original packaging to go with it. However, if you need to make a claim with a watch dealer, you will need to provide some proof of purchase, and if that receipt doesn’t come from an authorised dealer, your warranty is void. This means that any repair cost will fall to you, regardless of whether it is damage caused or a manufacturer fault with the watch movement etc.

Extra benefits

Purchasing from an authorised watch dealer can have other benefits too. At Jura Watches, we regularly give free gifts valued up to £100. We offer a free resizing service so that your watch can be worn as soon as you receive it, and we even offer to gift wrap your purchase before dispatch. In many cases, you can even get an extended warranty if you register your product online with the manufacturer. If your watch arrives and you don’t like it, we offer a free returns period of 30 days, whereas many Grey Market sellers do not accept returns of any kind.
