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:
- 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.
- Chronometer Certificate - Ref "32113000", and also provides a Watch N number
- 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.
