    Fair point. I was not telling to never order from the website. I was telling not to order from the website without checking that the watch is "in stock" for reals.

    Once the dealer tells you the watch is available and he wants you to pay through the website, by all means, do so. Asking first will save you tons of headaches in the meantime.
    ok, thanks for clearing that up i'm actually kinda relieved you said that...Just find it more convenient to order from a website (and safer in some instances) especially because of the time difference between the US and Asia. You can imagine how difficult it was 15+ years ago (when I was heavily in to reps) to do business with dealers/suppliers from Asia because of this. This was before the internet was so wide-spread and popular.

    Thanks for the reply, much appreciated!

      Not a problem at all!

      I wish I had read this the first time. My first rep purchase was a Slevin from Watch Eden. Everything went smooth because at the time those reps where in good supply. Had I ordered that watch from the website today, it would be a different story.

      eh?

        I actually email their sales rep and PM WE over here for the same question regarding a watch in their website, quoting the URL.

        One told me it is instock, one told me no.
        Confusing..

          hmmm, that is confusing...I was going to try doing the same thing emailing both sales rep and PM just in case, but didn't want to come off as being an obnoxious and untrusting noob lol...But I'll give it a go and see if I get the same results as you.

            I'm actually a newbie in rep things, and this kind of post will typically help me a lot avoiding some basic mistakes.

            Great info in it !

              What are the consequences of buying off the wesite or not asking for QC pics?

                They may not have the watch in "stock" and you may not get the one you ordered.

                    From what I have read it can take a couple of days for the td to get your watch from the cartel. This isnt like buying from amazon I think you just have to be patient.

                    I am sure if I am wrong someone will be over to correct me.

                      That's right. If he agreed to send QC pics, he will.

                          Really depends on YOUR country's customs. Here in Canada, I've got a watch in less than a week and others have taken six. I personally refuse to check tracking for a month. When it shows it's kind of a surprise.

                              Yes, this was really helpful to read before considering my first rep purchase. I feel like I not only know the proper way to go about it, but what my expectations should be throughout the process. A+

                                Excellent guide, very useful! just one question, what does it mean in point #4 to "E-mail the dealer and ask them to source the watch for you"?
