    Compete noobs guide to buying you FIRST Rep.

    Since I've seen many issues on the matter I thought I'd put together a liitle buying guide.

    These few little steps will insure a much smoother transaction and happy customers all around.

    1) Look around and find the watch you want. Check out ALL the trusted dealers websites and ask some questions. "who has the best xxxxxx" is not a very good question. Think about that one.

    2) Choose a dealer. This is also a difficult to do but a lot of good info is located in the dealer review section found on the main page.

    3) DO NOT ORDER FROM THE WEBSITE. This is were a lot of noobs get into trouble as the rep game changes daily and a lot of watches are no longer produced and are still on thier websites or there are better versions out there that can be sourced.

    4) E-mail the dealer and ask them to source the watch for you. Most dealers don't like to do this but if you ask if the particular model is still available most will comply with your request.

    5) Once the dealer gets back to you with availability, THEN AND ONLY THEN should talk of a money exchange be made.

    6) BEFORE PAYMENT IS MADE request QC (quality control) pictures of your watch.

    (Ok to clear this up.....in simple terms)

    Ask for qc pictures before you pay. Pay once he agrees.

    Don't demand to see them before you pay, just get the dealer to say he will send them before he ships the watch.

    Dealers will want your money first as they do not want to be out of pocket if you decide that the rep game isn't for you. This is a VERY reasonable request due to your "noobiness". Think about if you were in there shoes. Nobody wants to be out of pocket including them. Almost no dealers carry stock of the watches listed on their websites especially of less popular reps. Once you have established a good relationship with a dealer this is not an unreasonable request.

    7) Pay the man. However you agreed to.

    8) You should get some sort of confirmation that the product is in hand and pictures of said watch. Make sure these pictures are not "stock" photos and prompty send your confirmation on the watch. This is great time to ask for a tracking number.

    Side note: most reps are sent EMS and there tracking system is not the best. Check YOUR postal service ie. USPS website for tracking updates. The tracking information will show up a few days after the parcel is sent.

    9) Wait. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP. Keep in mind that up to this point you are are looking at a minimum of a week and MANY e-mails to get this point. Wait patiently, Shipping can take from a week up to several.

    Don't be concerned with "item is being inspected at customs" ect. ALL packages will be inspected by customs. Not many are truly inspected and our dealers are very good at describing the contents of these packages so not to attract attention.

    Enjoy your watch, AND POST SOME DAMN PICTURES ONCE IT ARRIVES!!!

    Hi all, this is a noob joining the forum, did my researches and saw the point number 3 as do not order from website, but after talking several convesation with someone from TD, the dealer asked me to order my watch from Website.
    I asked her to clarified by showing the sticky post. But the page is legit and shall I order from the page or via her?
    Sorry if this question seems noob but I am indeed a newbie here.

    Cheers.

    Hello and

    Take it slow and do some ready before jumping to an order, you will not regret being a little patient

    Do you have a particular rep in mind?

    Ive not seen that Exospace before.

    Best thing to do in that case is send an image of the watch to the TDs, sometimes they have watches available that are not on the website. They will tell you if they can get it or not.

    Secondary, you could post into the Breitling sub-forum, theres plenty of members with a lot of Breitling knowledge and thats the best way to get their attention.

    I think all TDs will be able to get that.... Off the top of my head its a current watch. Not sure about blue dial with black bezel though, arent the dial and bezel colour always the same?

    Check out Breitling Superocean Heritage II 42mm - GF V2
