    Anyone know a good/trustworthy place to buy a watch online OTHER than Ebay?

    And yes, I've found several places, but I don't know who to trust...

    I have heard good reviews of Long Island Watch.

    Mixed reviews of Blue Dial but overall positive.

    And I have experience with Princeton Watches. They offered me free overnight shipping on a Seiko back during the holidays. Very good service and the watch is great.

    Princeton will also size for free if you are getting a steel bracelet and can't size it yourself.

    What kind of watch you looking to get?

    I bought three Seiko dive watches from BlueDial.com and had very positive experience with it.

    However, I would not buy a multi-thousand dollars watch on-line. A few hundreds is one thing, a few thousand is another.

    I bought the Seiko that I am wearing right now on Overstock.com for about 1/6th of MSRP.

    Bernardwatch.com and watchseller.com both have very good reputations, and are worth your time to look at......

    What type of watch we talking about? I've bought two Suuntos online, $300 and $500 with no issues. Personally I would never buy electronics on eBay unless it's a store.
    Now when you get into mechanical style watches, that's where you run into drama. There are few places that I would buy a Rolex(for ex.) online...two to be exact.
    When you're shelling out thousands everything matters.
    Shipping is also a huuuge concern. I would only use the post office for such a purchase.
    Bottom line, if you're looking for a good Seiko, Casio, Wrist computer style(ie suunto), military style watch there are many places on the net.
    Some of these companies have there own websites or links. Outdoor retailers(REI) and online dept stores(macys, dillards) have sales and clearances.
    'That help any?

    Looking for my wife. She wants a specific model of Casio Baby G.

    Surprisingly Walmart does not carry it. Already looked there.

    Bluedial.com has the model but the price seems high compared to Watchesgiant.com but I've never heard of Watchesgiant. Anyone used them?
