    Citizen.com or Amazon?

    Why is the same make/model so much more expensive on Citizen.com than any other online authorised retail store or authorised website?
    The only advantage seems to be an additional year of warranty from Citizen.com.

    Any thoughts?

    It might be because they sell the watches on their website at MSRP and don't want to be undercutting their distributors.

    Also, Citizen.com is a different website. I believe you mean CitizenWatch.com.

    Amazon hands down. Amazon is killing everyone when it comes to finding the best deal.

    I know this from experience. I sold watches at an authorized dealer retail location and we were allowed to give up to 20% off of our Citize watches. Customers liked this. Until they saw how much the same exact watch was going for on Amazon.

    One question that the customer would always ask is: does the watch on amazon come with a warranty? The answer is yes. Another question that a lot of people would ask would be in regards to the quality of the watch. Like I said before, same exact watch.

    Huge E-commerce brands are slowly killing retail. When you're able to offer the same exact quality for a much better price (Citizen Blue Angels stainless steel watch at my store is currently going for $650. Even with the 20% discount it comes down to $520. Amazon offers it for $400 something.) it's a no brainer.
