    2 out of 2 for Amazon - Used - Worn - Stained- Scratched

    ... last week I received a used Timex that was sold as new from the prime day. You could tell by the leather band it has been worn for days. No big deal, complaint to amazon and they sent me a new replacement.

    Watch no. 2 which was the big purchase for my wife. Received today, stained and scratched. This one is a Bulova Bellecomb with diamonds. Not a happy camper and ruining the gift excitement!

    I wonder if Amazon has that practice of selling open box items as new now. I've always trusted amazon for bigger purchases and avoided 3rd party sellers, but now makes me think twice specially for watches.

    Good thing about free returns.

    Was the watch sold by Amazon, or was the order fulfilled by Amazon?

    And I've had good luck with 3rd party sellers. Two out of production grey market watches were in new condition with boxes, papers, etc.

    I think the easy\free returns are a double-edged sword. On the one hand - it makes it easier to return stuff and is critical for an online retailer model.
    On the other hand - Amazon is too permissive. It's entirely possible that someone ordered a new watch before, wore it, decided to return it and Amazon in an effort to keep every client happy accepted the return. Now that should put it in the "refurb" pile, but it likely got relisted as new. If the person who returned it claimed BS like wrong item, or something similar, not sure if Amazon evaluated if item is still as new or refurbed.

    I do sometime wonder with these liberal return policies, who ends up with all the returned merchandise.

    I bought my IWC Aquatimer from Amazon as new and got a great deal on it. It was new and exactly as described. It's actually safer to buy from Amazon with Prime than other grey dealers because of Amazon's return policy. They're great. I have also purchased from grey market dealers that I wouldn't hesitate buying from again. Sorry to hear about your troubles and hope you get everything resolved to your satisfaction.

    I've had great luck at Amazon, and I agree, the return policy can have this unintended consequence. I was under the impression that returned goods get sent back to the manufacturer, but maybe not.

    Sometimes I wish I could reach through my screen and smack people when I read posts about them ordering several items from Amazon to try out (watches, clothing, etc.) so they can decide which one to keep. That's NOT the intent of Amazon's return policy.

    I find this very disturbing and disrespectful as well!
