    Omega Deal of the Century - Jared Galleria of Jewelry...Gets Had

    I was at Jared over the weekend - maybe not as bad of an idea as most watch enthusiasts would lead you to believe (NOTE: I do not claim to be anything other than a watch newbie).

    The watch I was interested in trying on was an Omega Speedmaster Date (3210.50.00). After trying it on and finding that it fit well, I asked the price. Although I do not recall the exact price, I believe she said $3475. That day I walked out the door having to think about the purchase.

    Tonight, I went back to Jared to again check out the same watch. I spoke with a new lady this time and requested the price. She said $1742.50! Caught off guard at first, I thought all of a couple of minutes and then had the lady ring me up.

    I believe what happened was that the wrong tag was on the watch. Although I am 95% sure this is indeed the 3210.50.00 model, as I stated before I am nothing but a watch newbie.

    • Is there anywhere I can look on the watch to find a model number?

    The receipt has a SKU NUMBER listed as "330646201". I am not sure if this is a model of watch, or if this is something store specific.

    The box came with three (3) cards from Omega as follows:

    1. International Warranty Card - This has a blank "Ref" and "Watch N", lists the Jeweler as "STERLING JLRS. INC." and only has 2011 as the Date.
    2. Chronometer Certificate - Ref "32113000", and also provides a Watch N number
    3. Pictograms - Ref "32113000", Calibre 1164

    Will this warranty card work? It references "32113000", which is actually the same watch (I believe), but with a silver face rather than black. Should I go back to Jared and ask for the correct warranty card or am I asking for trouble?

    Most importantly, is this a deal too good to be true, or am I missing something?

    Sorry for all the questions, but I really do appreciate any help you can offer.


    Thanks,

    - Brian

    think you just bought a pre-owned but the prices seem about right! Would be a mess with the wrong card, if it had to go back to Omega in Bienne they would change the dial at your expense to match the numbers on warranty card..... Sometimes deals sound to good to be true and they usually are, i would go back and find out the real story instead of buying the watch because you thought there was a wrong price tag on it! Watch wasnt from Jareds, numbers dont match and sounds like bad karma to me! also would love to see the caseback and if the serial number on the watch match any paperwork you have from Omega not jared!

    ps serial number is on the lug at 7 o'clock on the backside of the case and all the paperwork needs to match that number.. might need a loupe to read it! Sterling owns jared, kay and a few other jeweler stores , so that might work in your favor but looks like someone gave you the wrong price.. balls in your court at this point!Retail is 3300 bones and they go anywhere between 2450.00 and 2900.00 if that tells you anything! You need the right paperwork good price or not, even Omega is known to break down every once in a while!!!

    I think you need to find out what you got in exchange for $1,745. Who knows, you may have a used watch or grey market. Or it could be just a simple mistake and you have a new watch with the warranty card and documentation for another. Just go back and get it straightened out with the realization that you may not get to keep a discount that the retailer clearly did not intend to give you. Ultimately I think you will feel better with an honest deal

    Jared does sell used watches. They seperate them from new watches here at the local store.

    The "Jeweler" on the warranty card reads Sterling Jlrs Inc.

    After a quick google search, they own Jareds Sterling Jewelers. What are the chances that it's a used watch that was originally purchased at their store? I don't know. Is it common for them to take items in on trade?

    It's pretty clear that the Ref # on card 2 and 3 are wrong, though.

    Just take it back. They are not going to force you to take a refund on the watch. Is that even legal?

    I don't think you bought pre-owned. I'm very familiar with Jared and their pre-owned watch program.
    1. Jared has phased out their pre-owned program. They have a limited number of preowned pieces in the vault, but they no longer leave them out in the display cases (at least not here anymore.)
    2. You would never get an Omega box and warranty card with a pre-owned from Jared. You wil get the watch only, no warranty, and a plain generic Jared box.
    3. If by chance, they still have preowned watches out, they would be in their own little section and clearly labeled.

    Sounds like a tag mix-up.

    Edit: Read the rest of the thread. Interesting. Perhaps they simply transferred stock over from a subsidiary? It sounds more like a warranty card mix-up. As for the price, that could be anything from a computer glitch, to salesperson error, to a Jared Vault Value based on whatever number was on that tag.

    Keep us posted.

    I guess my thinking is; if you hadn't been in such a hurry to get over on Jared's, you could have cleared everything up prior to purchase. I would have pointed out the apparent/obvious discrepancy in price and asked, "why"?
    I may sound like an ass, but if I'm given change in a store and the change is obviously wrong in my favor, I give back the excessive change.
