Hey folks, could use some advice.
My mother just bought a certified pre-owned Cartier tank quartz (ss bracelet) for my wife from Tourneau and we all love it. It comes with 2 year warranty and lifetime battery replacement, but of course they tried to sell her on the extended warranty.
I typically avoid extended warranties, but on an item like this that should last a lifetime and more, would it be worth it? It's only 3 years, but includes refinishing and service with no deductible. The price is $300ish, and I would imagine a service from Cartier would cost just as much if not more.
The sales rep reasoned that the watch would be covered for 3 years, and suggested that it would pay for itself if we bring it in for a complete overhaul before the policy ends. And if for whatever reason the watch cannot be repaired, it will be replaced (unclear on the details here).
Any thoughts or experiences with this plan? It sounds tempting and justifiable. Can we trust Tourneau to deliver on their promises, and excellent quality? Or should we self-insure and only bring it to Cartier whenever a service would be needed?
