Rolex2u.com — Rolex replica watch
I located the company (ROLEX2U.com) on Amazon's web-site while searching for a gift watch. The company ad appeared at the bottom of an Amazon web page along with two other watch company ads. The 'ROLEX2U.com' advertisement stated that they would sell "luxury watch replicas at very low prices." I knew, of course, that such things existed but had always thought they were illegal. Now, with the underwriting of Amazon.com, I was encouraged to take a look. One of the Rolex watch replicas being offered for sale looked almost exactly like the genuine one which my wife had given to me many years before. I was tempted to order this 'knockoff' for everyday wear so that I could place my genuine Rolex watch into our safe deposit box at our bank. I was a little worried about ordering something directly from a foreign country (China) but since their advertisement had appeared on Amazon.com's web site I decided to deal with 'ROLEX2U.com' and to go ahead with the order. The replica cost $285.00 and was paid for using an Amazon.com Visa card. When the watch arrived I was amazed; It looked precisely like my own genuine Rolex watch... Only one problem, however; When I unscrewed one of the stems (a chronograph button) the entire stem assembly fell out of the watch. My wife, who had advised me "not to buy the darned thing" to begin with, enjoyed the scene immensely. Naturally I fired off an angry email to ROLEX2U.com, demanding a new watch. In reply they told me to return the defective watch at my own expense ($30.00 postage) and they would "fix it". I, however, did not wish to pay $30.00 for the privilege of buying a "fixed" defective watch, and so I requested a pre-paid return postage voucher... "So sorry, " said Allen at ROLEX2u.com but that is not our policy. The emails have been flying 'fast and furious', back and forth for the past week. I finally decided to complain to Amazon.com and spent almost an hour searching for a way to do this but have been unsuccessful. Any advice? Please don't repeat my wife's advice... I already feel like a fool for deciding to buy this crap.
