The reason why someone would ever spend more money on a Swiss replica watch than on a Japanese one is the fact that these type of knockoffs are supposed to be solid. Durable, accurate and nicely crafted, Swiss replica watches are the best quality available on the market. This is why, companies like SolidWatches.co.uk advertises its products by claiming that these are solid Swiss watches made to look and last just like the authentic ones. Is this really so? Let’s find out together.
The homepage looks nice. It is not very elegant, modern or appealing, but it is ok. The site has a white and beige background and the content of the page mostly consists of a sleek black menu, two common looking sliding banners and a couple of product pictures. At first glance, the site has a friendly and simplistic appearance, this making it very easy to browse.
The site has only one menu and this is located right at the top of the page. It includes only a couple of buttons to the most popular brands available on this e-shop. But don’t be fooled by these modest appearances. The company offers replicas of many other famous watch companies. After you click on one of the categories from the main menu, a new page loads and in the right side of the screen there is a very long list with the brands that are available here.
Each brand is divided into sub-categories that have the same name as the original collections. For example, Omega includes Seamaster, Speedmaster, Deville and so on. The selection of replica watches is very wide and diversified, but each sub-category includes only 2-3 pages of products. Unlike the majority of replica watches online stores, this company concentrates only on the best-selling designs. It doesn’t display an overwhelming number of different models for each collection. This is actually a good thing. It allows you to focus only on the watch that you are interested in buying.
As you have probably guessed after reading the name of this store, the company targets UK customers. This intention is also reinforced by the fact that all the prices are displayed in GBP. Solidwatches.co.uk carries two types of replica watches. The first one is the Swiss fake watches collection which includes products priced at 200 GBP- 300 GBP. The second one refers to the Japanese replica timepieces. This category is more affordable and the prices range from 70 GBP to 150 GBP.
On this website there are actually very beautiful and good quality product pictures. All the products appear to have images that were taken in the same studio and by the same photographer. This makes me believe that the company understands the necessity of having reliable photos. The issue is that I haven’t found a way of enlarging the displayed images. Each product has over 10 pictures that show the replica watch from all possible angles, but these are showcased at a very small size. There is no option to see the photos at a better resolution.
The company offers two options for delivering our packages. The first one is free worldwide delivery and the estimated delivery time is 15-30 business days. The second one costs 20 GBP and the usual delivery time is 7-15 business days. In case you were wondering, the free option implies dispatching the package by EMS and a tracking number will be provided as well. The second option means sending the order by UPS, DHL or FEDEX. I honestly, prefer paying extra and receiving my order in one or two weeks than getting free delivery, but receiving it in a month or even longer.
Solidwatches.co.uk accepts payment only by credit card- Visa or Mastercard. It doesn’t take any alternative payment forms, such as Money Gram, Western Union, Bank Wire or Paypal. I am not too happy about this, especially if we take into consideration the fact that the payment page where you are supposed to enter your card information isn’t protected by a security certificate. In absence of the https at the beginning of the domain name, any third party can hack your card details.
The company offers a “no questions asked” 14 days money back guarantee. This basically means that if within the first 14 days from the delivery you decide that the replica watch is not quite what you had expected you can simply contact the store and request the return information. The product must be shipped back unworn and undamaged. The customer will pay for all the return shipping costs and the refund is issued only after the returned watch arrives at the warehouse. There is no mention of a free repairs warranty.
I was quite disappointed to see that Solidwatches.co.uk doesn’t offer any sort of real and reliable customer services. After carefully browsing the website, I was unable to find a contact phone number, an email address or a chat button. It seems that if you have any urgent or important questions for the company, the only way you can address them is by sending a message through the Contact Form.
Solidwatches.co.uk is a common looking replica watches online site that focuses on offering a very large collection of watches brands at very low prices. Not only this, but it also tempts us with free delivery and a 14 days “no questions asked” refund policy. My only concerns are regarding the lack of actual customer services, the unsecure payment processing page and the fact that the product pictures can’t be enlarged so you can view the important details of these fake watches.
