Hey Watch Enthusiasts,
I thought it may be interesting to share bargaining techniques used on high street jewellers in order to get better prices like hypnosis and such!!! I know online purchases generally save money; however most jewellers will haggle where they can drop a set amount off a watch dependent upon its advertised price.
I was looking at Seiko watches in a jeweller with a retail price of 400 and was willingly to drop 100 off. Is there a mathematical formula to deduce how much a jeweller may be willing to slash based on their advertised price on watches up to 500?
Certain watches may have minimal saving when purchased online so the alternative of paying a little more to get to examine the watch and check the clasp is working well or any visible markings bears some consideration. Now this peace of mind is reassuring especially for anyone who has had personal experience of getting a defective product online and the hassle it inevitably brings. It’s just a though really anyone that wants to vent fire away!!
