Replicawatchcollector.com is the replica store that any watch collector would fall in love with at first glance. It is sleek, elegant, beautifully complicated and easy to use. Just like any luxury timepiece should be. Everything looks and feels incredibly good. Like a shopping spree in a high class store. But let’s not get carried away by the nice bows wrapped around these beautiful replica watches and let’s see if this website is as good as it seems.
The esthetics of this website is very well done. It has a clean and functional template that allows you to enjoy all the benefits of online shopping. I also think that the black background has a nice touch of refinement. It is a reminder that this store is dedicated to the classic beauty of iconic timepieces. Exquisite product photos flash before your eyes promising that this merchant is the right choice for you and, of course, the “free shipping for orders over $500” banner tempts us to spend as much as possible just to get the free shipping deal. Did I for get to mention the “Flash Discount”? Yeah, that’s right! On the right side of the page you are reminded that you can get an extra discount for your order. As some people like to say: the more you spend the more you save.
The website offers a surprisingly high number of watch brands, varying from Rolex, Omega, Panerai to Dior, Jacob&Co and Aigner. Here you will find both established luxury brands with tradition in manufacturing complicated and precise mechanisms, as well as fashion forward brands more focused on trends and designs. It is the perfect place for those who are looking to see a diversified selection before making their purchasing decision.
Replicawatchcollector.com ships packages worldwide and it offers something I consider it to be very different than all the other replica websites: it offers a flat rate shipping fee of $27.95 regardless of the delivery country. As they also point out, this is a pretty affordable price for a 4-8 business days delivery. The companies used for sending packages are DHL, UPS, DHL, TNT and EMS Express. The delivery of your order is guaranteed and the merchant promises to send out a replacement if the package is lost in the mail. And don’t forget that orders over $500 get free shipping.
Now let’s talk about returns and warranty. I don’t like this part very much. The company appears to be very difficult in this matter. It seems that you get a full refund if you return the order within the first 5 days and only if the replica is classified as defective after a very close inspection of their staff. Of course, you must allow up to 30 days for your watch to be inspected. That is a very long time for inspecting a watch. And that’s not all. If the watch isn’t defective you are charged a 20% restocking fee. That is a bit too much, if you ask me. The warranty also covers only manufacturer’s defects. The warranty does not cover: intentional damage, defects caused by wear and tear, scratches, dents, rust and water damages. I didn’t seem to find any information about the time extent of the warranty.
The company accepts Visa and Mastercard payments only. It also reassures us that other payment methods will be accepted soon. I don’t know what to say about that. Sure, Visa and Mastercard are the world’s most used credit card types, but you feel safer when you have more options to choose from. Not everyone enjoys putting his credit card information online and for those online shoppers there should be other choices such as Paypal, Western Union, e-checks or bank wire. The more divers are the payment methods the more secure you feel about ordering from a certain company.
Sadly, the photos are not a reassurance of the quality of these replicas. On the contrary, these watches have just one photo displayed and if you are lucky you may find a few products with two photos. What’s even worst is that the images are very unclear and generic. I really couldn’t say that these are pictures of the watches they sell. I mean, these photos look like they have been copied from the Internet after a couple of Google Image Searches. This is a very disappointing detail and makes me doubt the legitimacy of the company.

Replicawatchcollector.com offers chat service Monday to Friday from 10AM-6PM EST. During these business hours you can choose to contact the support staff by phone, email or live chat. The fact that it offers so many contact channels makes me feel very confident about the liability of the company. Believe me, you want to buy your watches from a replica merchant that is responsive and offers you answers to all of your purchasing inquiries. There are many things that can go wrong when buying online and sometimes all you need to fix these things is a little bit of support and information from the company. Having a responsive customer services helps a lot and guarantees that you will safely receive your order.
All replica watch collectors are looking to find the best quality for the most exquisite timepieces ever made. This is exactly what replicawatchcollector.com promises, but fails to illustrate through the means of its product photos, policies and website content. Underneath the perfectly designed website it unveils itself as just another replica merchant, very far from the ideal replica source a watch collector would hope to find.
