Guys, i read about tissot that their warranties/indemnities etc is not valid on watched bought online.
any comments?
@mayankk - yes they'r worth fair bit. However, it depends on what the problem with the watch is. If it's not a case of missing parts, and the watch is otherwise in pristine condition, it could be quite valuable.
There's quite a large overseas market for these watches

Again I ask the same question, which I asked some time back.

Lots of Edifice owners. But none for Pro-Trekker range?

Dont worry about the product, he's a genuine dealer with good feedback. I personally bought 2 watches from him with a huge discount than others in Ebay.

I just bought a Citizen Eco Drive Chronograph for Rs.15,560.
It's a very new model and love to wear.

Dont be afraid to say it. It's a bad news especially since i bought it only couple of weeks ago.

Will have to convince myself to be happy that I got a windbreaker and casio calculator which easily together is worth 2K

If you have keen eyes, the packing is a dead give away. The next is the markings on the face or the dial of the watch. See if they are properly aligned and straight. Next if its a chronograph, see if it actually works.

I won a bid on ebay and as soon as I looked at the packaging I knew it was a fake. If my memory serves me right, the seller was elanwatch.

I got a genuine watch and it came in a Casio box other than the carton where you can keep the watch for years.

Name:  649645_100610214930_Casio_Boxes.jpg
Views: 1219
Size:  13.9 KB

Also made a cross check with the local dealer and confirmed that its an original piece. According to him its a good deal as he cant match with that price. Yes its coming along with the invoice and Casion one year warranty too.

If anything goes wrong, you can always raise a claim within 20 days for the refund and EBay is too open for genuine reasons.

@akhilesh, the seller name is timeclubindia

here's my bid details:
eBay India: EDIFICE EF534D-1AV Chronograph Mens Watch (item 300540935287 end time 02-Apr-2011 17:00:00 IST)

@Sajjt- I have the same watch and it looks much better in person than the pics

@aks_karthik- good looking buy. Why not post a pic of the watch on your wrist!

Hi Mayankk,
"Westend" is a fairly common brand in India, I have a matchless too, bought for around 2k. Not very valuable afterall And of course with all the parts missing... well. I'm not too sure.

Looking for a watch (mens)

Requirements:
Budget: Around 15K
Movement - Automatic/Quartz
Dial size - Above 40mm
Preferred Brand - TISSOT/SEIKO/CITIZEN (Others welcome except C Edifice)
Strap - Metal

Liked TISSOT T36.1.316.72 (Avl for 14.5K w 2 years warranty) but it is leather strap.

Any suggestions friends?

EDIT: How about Tissot T17158652 PRC 200 - Lowest price in India pls?

Yes, the picture is only doing 50% justice to the watch. Once you have a touch & feel option will clarify this.
