Suggestions On Where To Buy
Many watch brands do not officially sell watches online. However, more and more brands are opening up either their own e-commerce websites or are authorizing their dealers to sell watches online. These are often the safest places to buy watches on the internet, and will also come with full factory warranties. We recommend that you always check those places first.
Anyone using Google to look for watches to buy online will tend to come up with many options. We recommend buying through authorized dealers or other reputable sites. While often "at your own risk,' sites like eBay and Amazon offer good selections as well. See more about that below.
For Used, Rare, Or Unique
eBay: My perennial favorite place to buy most everything is eBay. The online purchasing and auction powerhouse is the 9th most visited website in the world (According to Alexa.com). I love eBay because of their amazing selection of NEW and used watches. Everything they have is based on individual sellers or stores, so they don't have everything, but it is a "MUST CHECK" before almost any purchase. eBay will often has items that no one else has, and the best deals will be found there, bottom line.

For The Biggest Selection
Amazon: What used to be the world's biggest book store is simply now the world's biggest store. Amazon.com has an impressive amount of watches from a ton of brands. Many are from Amazon partner sellers, but you get Amazon's shipping and purchasing system which is top-notch.
We would also like to support any watch retailer sponsors of aBlogtoWatch. If you see advertising on aBlogtoWatch for places that sell watches, that tends to mean we'd probably do business with them ourselves.
