Swiss Watches at Winners

Hi Guys,

Anyone else notice Winners has been starting to sell some low/mid-tier swiss watches?

I saw a Hamilton, Mido, Alpina and Frederique Constant.

prices were between 500-1500.

I have been in the market for a decent swiss auto watch. Should I pay the extra buck and go to a reputable dealer or is it safe to spend this amount on a watch at winners? (ofcourse if anything happens, im sure its a breeze to return it?)

We shop @ TJ Maxx group of stores in USA & Canada (Winners, HomeSense & Marshall's) mostly for home goods... Knowing that if anything goes wrong we'd most likely be SOL.

Their basically an "end of line" retailer... Dealing in the As Is trade.

Their return / refund policy is really bad (10 Days / 30 Days for Loyalty Members). Merchandise must be RESELLABLE. So if it is a watch and it don't work... Too bad, so sad.

Ya, I will wager a few dollars (something I'm prepared to forfeit in this game of chance), but rarely a $ 100+, and NEVER a $ 1,000+

As they say, sometimes a deal too good to be true, is just that... Not a deal at all.
