    geneva?

    I went into a jewelry store today to find a new square watch. I found a Geneva square with black checkered face and date, anyone know the model number for something that fits this description so I could find more info. It was on 'sale' for $279 and said msrp of $1100. This seems fishy to me. I really liked the watch but don't know anything about the brand and don't want to get a crappy deal or bad quality. Help is appreciated!

    Some research with google would have lead you to www.geneva-watch.com which is runed by Geneva Watch Inc/Royal Watch Inc., both believed to be located in the Miami area. There are a lot of sellers online offering Geneva watches at reduced prices (e.g. overstock.com).
    I'd stay away.

    I don't know about the U.S., but in Oz I have seen many of them, all bought online and most because they have malfunctioned.
    If you look at the watch, then assume about 3% of the selling price (not the suggested retail) is for the movement you will have some idea of the quality and durability.

    Knowing what they cost to make and wholesale for, my calculations give approx 1500% markup to arrive at their so called "suggested retail price".
