I'm new to the luxury watch scene. My wife has been hounding me to go get a watch. So what do I do? Go to the local authorized Tag dealer to have a look at their selection. I've never spent more than a couple hundred dollars on a watch, so this was new territory for me. I proceed to look at a few pieces and finally settle on a Formula 1 chronograph. I was a unsure whether or not it was a men's or woman watch and was reassured numerous times that it in fact was a mens piece.
I purchase the piece, get home and look on Tag's website and can't seem to find the watch on their site. At first I think, that I've somehow been taken. Then I proceed over to the women's section of the site and sure enough there it is. I take it back to the jeweler and they tell me that they can't take it back since it had been sized. I literally had the watch on for 20 minutes and it went straight back on the pillow and in the box.
To make a long story short. What should I do about getting my money back. Do I have any recourse with Tag since the place I got it was an Authorized Tag dealer and I was told several times by multiple salespeople at the jeweler that it in fact was a mens watch.
When I went back I even pointed to the ad where Maria Sharipova was wearing the watch, just wish I had seen the ad before.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
