    A search for the phone number via this site also returns a valid-looking office address:

    Phone: +61 3 9016 3308

    NONE OF THIS IS A GUARANTEE THAT THE STORE IS LEGIT but it does not seem to be obviously a scam site. But they also accept Paypal, so use that as a payment method should give you extra protection (so long as it's not payment via "friends and family" component of Paypal).

      Wow, thank you for that.
      Thank you for the links, I will save it for the future if i need to run a background check on a website

        No worries - especially when bargain hunting, it's good to know how to check real bargains from 'too good to be true' scam ones. And maybe you can help someone else someday.

  • Seems real. Just another grey market dealer, based in Australia.

      That's okay with me if they eventually discount Ball and Longines. :P

      • Yes after a discount on Ball or a Longines. Now how do we get a deal from them?

  • With the grey market dealers, be mindful that some of the warranties they provide are not manufacturer warranties.
