I. Is it good to buy a Tissot watch in Hong Kong? Not all watches are cost-effective to buy in Hong Kong!
Why not all watches are cost-effective to buy in Hong Kong? Each brand has a mainland price and a Hong Kong price. The calculation method is: mainland price (RMB) × multiple = Hong Kong price (Hong Kong dollar). Such as:
Omega: Mainland public price × 1.06 is about Hong Kong public price.
Rolex: Mainland public price × 0.94 is about Hong Kong public price.
Longines: Mainland price × 1.045 is about Hong Kong price.
In this way, it is not difficult to find that the more expensive watches in the Mainland are the cheaper in Hong Kong.
Like some top brands and luxury brands such as: Breguet, Piaget, Cartier, Rolex, Omega and other watch homes are still recommended to buy in Hong Kong. For people-friendly brands like Tissot, we do not recommend that you go to Hong Kong to buy it. When buying a watch in Hong Kong, in addition to the price of the watch itself, you must also consider the cost of travel and other costs.
2. How much does it cost to buy a Tissot watch in Hong Kong? Which watch store is the best deal?
The price of all watches in Hong Kong is the same. The difference is that different watch shops offer different discounts. It is roughly divided into official discounts and acquaintance discounts. Official discount refers to the official unified external discount; acquaintance discount: VIP discount for internal sales of watch stores, and the discount will generally be between 5% and 25%. Acquaintance discounts are cheaper.
What should I pay attention to when buying a Tissot watch in Hong Kong?
This is also one of the topics that everyone cares about most. After all, no one wants to buy fake goods. However, you can rest assured that the watch shops in Hong Kong do not buy fakes. In Hong Kong law, penalties for selling fake goods are very severe. Although there are no fakes, there may be parallel imports, so everyone still has to learn how to distinguish parallel imports.
Parallel imports are products that are officially released in other countries. Although these products are also genuine, but there is no sales order number in China, let alone the National Warranty! Therefore, it is best for you to buy licensed, try to buy from a regular and reputable licensed authorization form.
When purchasing a watch in Hong Kong, you should carefully check a watch information card (commonly known as ‘birth paper’) that comes with the watch. The front of the card is marked with the sales area number and watch number, and the reverse is printed with the name of the agent. . After buying the watch, the agent will put the sales information on that card for maintenance and certification. Take Longines as an example. The area code of Hong Kong is 6126. If the buyer finds that this number is not on the card, it means that the watch is not a genuine agent in Hong Kong. There will be a certain risk when buying. Each genuine licensed watch has a globally unique number, which can be found on the ‘Birth Paper’ and on the side of the dial, and the two numbers are the same. If all this information is complete, this watch should be a genuine agent product. The true ‘birth paper’ has clear shading and clear handwriting, while the fake ‘birth paper’ is often rough. In addition, it also depends on whether the serial number and watch model on the ‘Birth Paper’ are the same as those engraved on the case bottom or lugs.
Due to the advanced technology, it is difficult to distinguish between true and false, especially if the merchant modifies the old genuine watch by himself, such as adding diamonds and other original products. At this time, it is difficult for consumers to determine the authenticity. The most direct and simple way is to take the watch to the brand after-sale, and say that the watch has a problem. Stop and go, and let the service staff detect it. If it is true or false, the fake product will not be repaired after sale.
