    Angry Fake Tissot from Jomashop!

    It turns out the watch is authentic. I had it looked at by two AD's with both saying it looked and felt (weighed) right.
    Perhaps seeing posts on here made me a little uneasy, but you cannot be careful enough when it comes to fakes IMO.

    Thanks for your responses.

    Man for some reason Jomashop now is horrible in the past i purchased many pieces like watches and pens but the service now is the worst you can find, my opinion is just sent them for replacement and see what they sent to you if you are not satisfied do the return.

    If the AD verified it's authenticity, you either have the most amazing copy, or b) a horribly crafted Tissot. Jomashop has been in business over 10 years and I've never heard of anyone getting a copy. Does that mean it hasn't happened, no just that no one has ever caught on. Has anyone else noticed these imperfections? Can you be sure it is not just your eyes?

    Luminous pigments are charged by the UV content of the light, and there is some UV content in most light sources - some more than others. LED UV lamps deliver a good punch, peaking at 365nm or so. Daylight (D65) fluorescent lamps are pretty good, as are the "cool white" or "bright white" variety. Mercury vapor lamps are rich in UV, but sodium lamps are not. The good old-fashioned tungsten lamps have some UV content, but not a lot.

    A couple of charging rules of thumb:

    To an extent, the stronger the light, the quicker the charge and the higher the initial brightness of the lume but the law of diminishing returns does apply. The longer the time of illumination, the higher the initial brightness of the lume but there is a limit for each level of illumination and that limit is reached more quickly at higher strengths of illumination.

    Jomashop would never take the risk of selling fakes.

    Most likely you received a refurbished watch, with a few imperfections.

    Most watches sold in the gray market don't come straight from the factory, but travel from one distributor to another... Many of these watches are old exposition models or returned watches.

    I think PRC200 Lume isn't that good at all. And I can assure you mine isn't a replica. For instance, my Tissot seven it's almost a sun comparing to PRC200. :)

    Ditto, I purchased an Invicta 8926C from them and it took over a week for them to ship. They didn't give me a tracking number until I asked them for one, when I checked the tracking number it was already delivered to a guy named David who lives in Brooklyn New York, so I gave them a call and it turns out they sent it to themselves somehow. I asked for a refund and I'm not planning on ever shopping with them ever again.

    Re: Fake Tissot from Jomashop!

    To pour oil into the fire I have to tell you that before Xmas last year I sent them a message inquiring about availability of a Hamilton chrono with Val.7750 mov't but they never answer my message. But when I entered my E-mail address to the "product alert" field shortly after it works "magically" well, now I have tons of their automatic messages in my Inbox, and they are stuffs I don't care about...
    Ball - Casio (G-shock) - HMT - Longines - Parnis - Seagull - Tissot - Victorinox - Yema

    Well, of course that was the case. The product alert emails are automated messages sent out automatically by a computer system.

    Perhaps they we slightly busyat the time.
    Quality is great and so is value for money

    Re: Fake Tissot from Jomashop!

    I bought what I thought was Tag 1887 from Jomashop last month (March 2014). Upon receiving the watch, I took it to a jewler to make sure that it was authentic and they told me that it was a Chinese fake. I immediately called and received a RMA number for the return and sent it back via their instructions. They have since wrote me saying that they would not credit because they said I had worn it, which was absolutely not the case. I have gone to my credit card company to file a claim and I would recommend that everyone should stay away from purchasing from this dishonest company.

    This has been one of the most frustrating experiences dealing with this company and I hope this note prevents others from having to go through the same thing I did. #jomashopfake, #dontbyfromjomashop

    The jeweler is a family friend with 30 years in the business and has no reason to steer me in the wrong direction. I'm posting this in hopes that others see it and learn from my experience.
