Buying a good replica watch is never easy. There are so many fake watches companies on the Internet and so many things to consider that it may seem like an impossible decision to make. MineWatches.co.uk is a website that tempts us with decent prices and with a wide selection of imitation watches. Let’s find out if it is one of the few good replica merchants out there!
MineWatches.co.uk has an elegant appearance, one that recommends it as a serious online replica store. It is designed with simple lines, dark hues and classy pictures. What I like most about the home page is that even though it is colored in black and gray, it still manages to look very friendly and inviting. This is probably because it has a minimal functionality and it is very neatly organized. Furthermore, all the important buttons and features are placed right on the top so that everyone can easily see them. As a first impression, it appears to be a good place for shopping replica designer watches.
The menu is quite simple and easy to use. It is positioned at the top of the page and it features only eight watch brands. This is not because the company only sells eight watch brands, but because these are the most important ones and also the ones that will convince you to click further and stay on this e-shop. After you click on one of these main watch names, a new page loads and all the available watch designers are presented on the left side of the page. This more generous menu includes many of the world’s most renowned brands.
I took the time and effort to browse most of these replicas, and to quickly review the prices and quality MineWatches.co.uk offers. It seems that this fake watches store sells knockoffs with three kinds of movements: Quarts, Japanese Automatic and Swiss Automatic. The Quartz watches cost about 70 GBP, the Japanese one about 80 GBP and the Swiss about 200-400 GBP.
The product description page is very nicely constructed. It is well organized and includes all the important specifications of these replica watches presented in a very simple and easy to understand manner. You know right from the beginning what to expect from a fake watch purchased from MineWatches.co.uk
The brands are not divided into sub-categories and there is also no search or filter option to help you browse easier through all the replicas. You simply need to go through all the models, page by page. This is actually a hassle, as each category includes hundreds of items.
Do you know that saying “Talk is cheap”? This applies very nicely to what MineWatches.co.uk has to say about its accepted payment methods. This company claims to be able to process the following credit card payments: Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Delta and AMEX, still when it comes to applying this it manages to disappoint us greatly. The only payment options it supports are Visa and Mastercard. No other payment methods are supported. I don’t know about you, but I do not like it when a replica merchant lies without any shame.
Supposedly, the delivery is free here, at MineWatches.co.uk, still the website applies a 20 GBP shipping fee to your order. Also, you are not informed of the shipping company that will be used to dispatch your order. You are only told that the store works with several carriers and for each order they will use the most suitable one, whatever that means. Furthermore, it takes about 2 business days to prepare the order for shipping; and depending on the delivery country, it may take from 3-20 days for your package to arrive. That’s a huge time frame. I’m not sure I’m comfortable with waiting for that long time and hoping that I will eventually get my order.
The company provides a 7 days refund and exchange policy, but no repairs warranty. It appears that as long as you return the replica watches no longer than the first 7 days from the delivery, you have the right of claiming a refund or exchange. Of course, photos of the problem will be asked, water damages are not a valid reason for retuning a replica and no wear and tear marks are accepted. Additionally, you are the one that will have to pay for all the return expenses and your refund or exchange will be processed only after the returned products arrive at the company’s warehouse.

Pictures: I really couldn’t say that MineWatches.co.uk has the best pictures I have ever seen at an online replica watches company, because it doesn’t. It is quite far from this idea. The actual problem is that the images are copied from several different sources and this is very obvious as the photos have different backgrounds and clarity. Some replicas have only one picture while others have a handful. Not only this, but I have also found a couple of images where you could see scratches and stains on the replicas.
Customer service: There is nothing I love more than a replica website that offers great customer service, and vice versa. I absolutely disapprove an online fake watches store that is incapable of providing satisfactory and responsive customer care. And MineWatches.co.uk does not supply the level of customer service that ensures satisfaction and liability. Interesting enough, the Contact Us page says that the customer service is reachable 24/7. In fact, you can only reach the store by email and their email address is a highly unprofessional and unsecure Gmail account. From my point of view, a trustworthy replica website must provide phone, email and chat service in order to be considered responsive, liable and even remotely close to the 24/7 customer care ideal.
Summary: MineWatches.co.uk is a replica watches website that looks good and seems like a pretty good place to purchase your favorite knockoffs, but it may turn out to be the worst decision you have ever made. Why is that? Well, this is because it lies about the payment methods it can process, it lies about providing free delivery, it does not say what shipping company it uses and how much time it takes for your package to arrive, it does not have a repairs warranty, it uses copied photos and it does not have a professional customer service. For all these reasons, I consider MineWatches.co.uk a pretty risky purchasing decision.
