Formula 1 Tag Heuer watches have increasingly popularized both racing enthusiasm and the Tag Heuer brand. I was first introduced to this iconic brand by my little cousin, who wanted nothing more than to get a Formula 1 watch for his 12th birthday. Being that I had very limited knowledge as to what a formula one watch actually is, I decided to conduct some research and price comparison.
Surprisingly, I came to the conclusion I was probably the only person on the internet that didn’t know what Tag F1 wristwatches are, and worse, the only person in the world who had never heard of Tag Heuer. It was like Googling Nike and realizing it’s a popular shoe brand. After browsing through several sites that feature the watch, I found online watch sites to be incredibly time-saving as well as exceedingly cheaper than retail stores.
I was initially reluctant to place an order for such an expensive timepiece online, but soon realized the site offering the Formula one was legitimate. One of the fastest ways to check a site’s legitimacy is by looking through their feedback rankings on Bizrate, EBay and NEXTAG. This will also alert you as to the quality of customer service the site offers. The site I purchased the F1 from provided great customer service and was able to explain all the features and functions of the timepiece in terms that were comprehensible to me. I received the item overnight, just in time for its celebratory occasion.
I was uncertain as to whether the online watch portal would provide paper work for the watch, given that they were not actual authorized retailers for the brand. Their customer service representative explained in detail how all relevant paper work for the watch including the warranty, manual, serial number and authentic box would be provided. The “authorized” status of dealers only means you will pay retail pricing at these stores. The same watches are offered at great discounts on legitimate websites like the one I purchased from.
Another convenient factor to online purchasing is the ability to browse hundreds of watches from home. At retail stores, I would have spent weeks browsing different shopping malls for the right watch. In the event the watch suffers a malfunction, the site I used will service it for free during the warranty period, as well as pay for shipping and handling! I am definitely going to purchase more time pieces now that I have become knowledgeable of the Tag Heuer brand and have discovered the wonders of shopping for watches online.
