This is a brilliant watch - interesting and functional. Most of my watch purchases will probably be made through brick and mortar stores as I have an affinity for feeling and observing a watch on my wrist before the purchase.

The Xetum watches have great modern or a military feel to me. Definitely attractive yet functionally busy dials.

Online pricing sometimes can't be beat. Most good online vendors can be reputable and if you can both call and email them it's always a plus.

Definitely need to ask all the important questions about the watch, bracelet, strap, etc, details. If done properly you will not be disappointed with your expectations.

Brick n mortar is nice for the purposes of seeing what your buying, but the downside that most everyone knows is that it can be significantly higher price because of the overhead.

For lower-priced pieces, I'd buy online...for larger investments, likely in an authorized dealer brick-and-mortar store.

This is too much money for too few features.  I would not buy it,

but would enjoy winning it and wearing it with pride.

Most of my watch buying is in a store.  I like to try on before buying.

How do we find out who won? This is my first time tracking this.  ;)

B&M for me. I'd love to go to the SF store and check out the watch in person...this watch looks so nice, I'd buy without physical contact with it if I could!

Most of my watch buying will be at a boutique. I like it up close and personal

Awesome site! Most of my watch buying for 2013 will be online.

The majority of my watch buying will be online. If you go through reputable sites, you get the same watches as you would get in brick and mortar shops but for so much less

It will be a combination of Internet, and local private sellers found via Internet.  Sorry for all you brick and mortar businesses out there, but that's how our society is evolving.

I will try some New York Brick and Mortars

Montreal has a lot of B&M's that carry a good variety of brands.  However, this year i plan on buying mostly vintage (3 or 4) watches, so it will most likely be online.

It would be somewhere online

KevinColeman

Most likely my watch purchases will be online because it is impossible to find many non mainstream watches in stores.

Have no choice but to buy online. Local B&M only carries mainstream brands

While I'd like to use B&M, virtually all of my watch purchases are online.  And that Xetum would like very nice on my wrist.......

p.s. It's mighty tough to check and see if I'd already responded or not because I can't seem to say "show me all responses" and then search. I tried to check that this is my only response.

Nice, I would like one.

This year I will continue to buy watches online, but sometimes I do walk into a retail store to try them on.

Great looking watch.  Would look good on my arm.

I tend to make larger purchases face-to-face, but I buy less expensive watches from Internet retailers.

awkwardly brilliant elegance achieved by mr. kuo and co.. this would be my first non-brick-and-mortar pursuit, but a plunge well worth it. the xetum timepieces are stunning simplicity embodied

I prefer buying a watch from a B & M store. The reasons are two-fold: 1. I would like to enjoy and cherish the moment of the new acquisition with my family and the sales-person, which can never be obtained by an online purchase and 2. I prefer trying it on right there and say a yes/no to save on the shipping hassles and the guilty conscience of trying / partly using a watch that may be returned to the seller, which eventually will be bought (as new) by someone.

Obviously online it's a trend of Globalization, especially for watches.

Really great looking watches. As usual, in 2013, I will be doing most of my shopping online.

this year, I will buy my next over $500 watch on a brick and mortar store, so that i can try it on and because of warraty issues (it happened to me once already and the dealer took care of it no questions asked), and maybe a "fashion watch" online because it will probably be an impulse buy

Flailhail

I buy most watches online because most of the stuff im interested in comes from small start ups that don't have there products in stores yet. Like Lum-Tec for instance. I do like to stop in at pawn shops from time to time to see what i might stumble upon though.

This is the best Xetum watch to date.  It's definitely on my wish list!

Ill be honest, the two watches that Xetum has put out so far are in my opinion some of the best looking watches out there.  The large face, and lugless case design make for a great over all look.  I haven't yet had the chance to handle one, and to be honest I do most of my watch shopping on line, so I may not un-till I plunk down the cash (or win one). 

 I love that Xetum is an "eco-friendly" company, specializing in automatic watches, inventive and green building materials, even down to the packaging.  Also I live in San Francisco, gotta dig 'em!

I have to try the watch on before I can buy it, so purchases will be in a brick and mortar store.

I have really wanted a Xetum for a few years now.  I'd love to get this one.

Want one! I'd probably buy watches online, simply because the preowned market is bigger and the prices are more competitive.

I will be shopping in a physical store. Nothing online can compare to actually feeling the watch on your wrist and seeing how it looks in the real world! Watches can look completely different in person from promo photos.

I personally do my shopping in store but if the watch is unavailable then i shop online! I just love walking out of a shop with a new timepiece on my wrist.

Very much online. It's the only way to go in this new world.

Online! Most of the time, the brick and mortar store warranty is wothless.

Online absolutely. More choice and worst comes to worst, i can always pop into town to check it on the wrist.

I'm not sure, probably online but depends on if I find good deals or timepieces while in brick and mortar stores...

 I'm more of a "hands on the matter" person, so I like not just to see, but also to feel what I'm buying, so most probably I'll go for the "brick and mortar" type of shopping, but on some occasions I shop online as well, especially when I find great deals :)

I usually go to a brick and mortar AD to buy a brand new watch, but usually buy any number of random preowned watches online.

Awesome watch. I do all of my watch buying online. Although its always nice to check the merchandise out in person.
