Okay so I'm pretty much done my homework on buying my first Omega watch. I am pretty intrigued by looking at the resellers pricing such as jomashop. I am willing to give up a warranty for the price difference. I would be someone hesitant about buying it from an individual reseller and the ones that I've seen are pricing a above above Joma shop..... several members have suggested negotiating with an authorized dealer. I have been unsuccessful in the local area. That would be a great option if I could come close to the jomashop price. Any suggestions in trying to locate such a dealer?

You will not find Joma prices at an AD. You will not get AD service from Joma.

AD's have pricing guidelines they need to follow. Topper, our forum sponsor, is where I would go.

Good luck!

I’d go to Topper. I have gotten 3 watches there and always top notch. If you don’t want to go to an AD then check the for sale forum here. There are several trusted Omega sellers.

Are you sure about Chitown being authorized? Per their website:
Chitown Watches is NOT an authorized dealer of any brand watch we sell.

i didn't say they are an authorized dealer, just that they have the same warranty. they sell watched with the original factory warranty.

Have not called Topper or any other AD yet but will after my due diligence among others....I understand how a reseller will not be able to offer a warranty . So help me understand how a non AD like Chitown can get a waranty card stamped and pass on to a customer without Omega knowing about it and pulling the plug? Is buyer protected with waranty?

Another vote for Topper.

Chitown will provide a warranty card stamped from an AD. Technically would be the factory warranty. Not sure if there could be a problem down the road.

I've bought from AuthenticWatches, WatchMaxx, and WatchesOnNet in the past and had great experiences. I wasn't particularly happy with Jomashop when I was looking to buy something from them. Their customer service when I called left something to be desired. But usually I try to find what I'm looking for from a well know forum seller either here or on another forum. There are some great ones out there, but of course you want to check them out and check their references!

there's no"technically"about it. they sell watches that they buy at wholesale from authorized dealers. so, they get legitimately stamped warranty cards. if you have a warranty card with a legitimate stamp, then you are covered by the factory warranty.

I dont mean to hijack the thread but had a relevant question.

Do AD's offer discounts on accessories like straps?
Some might but not much if they do.
