Thread: feedback about swisswatchspares!

  1. #1

    feedback about swisswatchspares!

    I'm a new member and was looking for some feedback about this seller:
    https://www.swisswatchspares.com/

    They seem to have a huge stock of parts and accessories including some less available ones with prices in general a bit on the higher side.
    I've tried searching the forum and came accross few mentions. Nothing on other major forums including Omega forum. Google wasn't of great help either!

    Thanks in advance for any helpful feedback!

    Thanks for your feedback.
    I haven't actually seen the replies on Omegaforum! (I gave up after few days with no replies!) They are alarming though!

    Iíve dealt with them, just the once. I bought an Omega Speedy Tuesday strap and buckle. No issues whatsoever and Iíd have no hesitation dealing with them again.

    Iíve never dealt with this guy, Iím aware of his ebay selling and he seems to be able to get hold of Onega parts that are now becoming difficult to source. He certainly doesnít underprice his items, and I question whether itís cheaper to buy some items from an Omega AD/boutique.

    Iíd be surprised if heís sellng fakes; what folks need to know is that the quality of some replacement Omega bracelets, particularly for the older stuff, is NOT as good as the originals despite the high prices! Itís easy to assume rhey must be fake because frankly they arenít very good. Theyíre produced cheaply in the far east and the Ďfakesí probably come out of the same factory via a different door.

    If the Swatch Group bozos would take a sensible attitude to parts supply life would be a whole lot easier!
