    watchshopes.com legit?

    Hi,
    I'm currently searching for a special G-Shock model - while doing this I stumbled upon this page:
    WATCHES SUPER SHOP.com

    Seems to be legit at a first glance but I did a little research and now I have doubts:
    watchshopes.com | Website review of watchshopes.com by WooRank
    Server is in Finland and all the domain info points to a Chinese owner while the site itself states they are located in:
    WatchShopes
    26 / 27 - 29 Cross
    Street. Reading
    RG1 1SN

    whois from WooRank:
    Registrant Name ................. fei zhang
    Registrant Organization ......... zhangfei
    Registrant Address .............. chaoyang qu dongshihuan 38
    Registrant City ................. beijingshi
    Registrant Province/State ....... beijing
    Registrant Postal Code .......... 100025
    Registrant Country Code ......... CN
    Registrant Phone Number ......... +86.0104353454 -
    Has anybody ordered there or has any info on that shop?

    edit: there's also a lot of mistakes on the site.

    examples:
    All orders received before 2pm are dispateched the same woring day
    As an official dealer for all of our brands, we provide the full stamped guarantee, box and instructions with all of watches.
    cheers, Sedi

    If I research the adress I get this:
    Cross Street, Reading, RG1 1ST - Residents, Businesses, Information - 192.com
    And there really is a watchshop there but with a different adress:
    WATCH SHOP.com™ - Mens & Ladies Watches | UK's No.1 for Watches Online
    And those are legit I think. So are those two sites the same:
    WATCHES SUPER SHOP.com
    and
    WATCH SHOP.com™ - Mens & Ladies Watches | UK's No.1 for Watches Online
    The layout and design looks the same but I have my doubts if they really are the same.

    cheers, Sedi

    I dont know about all that you have found out Sedi but I ordered a gw6900 from them about 3-4 months ago and got it in a week as they were waiting for stock and the watch was as from any other store, I live in the UK for reference. hope this is of some use to you. Im not sure but I think the store was brought to my attention becasue of a television advert, but I may be mixing it up with another advert, but I am pretty sure.

    I think you will be OK

    Here you go I thought I saw one.Watch Shop TV Advert (www.watchshop.com) - YouTube

    I think "watchshopes.com" could maybe a sister company based out of another country but with the mistakes could be bogus

    I'm sure that watchshop.com is legit - but what about the other one - watchshopes.com? I wrote them (watchshop.com) an email asking if it is the same shop as they have the same contact data.

    It could be similar to a problem I once had concerning "skywatches" and "skywatchdealers" - turned out they were the same shop but one of the pages was no longer updated.

    Re: watchshopes.com legit?

    So I got mail from watchshop.com - they are in no way affiliated with watchshopes.com. So buyer beware!

    www.watchshop.com is legit!
    www.watchshopes.com is not - they obviously just copied the contact data and the whole site .

    cheers, Sedi
