Askoys Jewellers

Hi,

I know askoys sells good quality gold and jewellery and there is always a risk buying abroad.

However, can anyone tell me about the watches, there are a couple I really like they are cheaper than the original brand website but not by a great deal.

Any advice to buy or leave well alone?

Well, this is a reputable company, so I’d be pretty sure they are authentic. However, if you’re thinking about spending a lot of money, you might do some reach on “what if” scenarios: eg. What if

- I get stopped by customs and have to pay VAT on the purchase price

- it stops working as soon as I get home

-whether it would be covered in your home contents insurance (insurance compsnies can be quite sceptical about “real” jewellery items brought abroad.

That sort of thing.

Thanks snow66,

I have done the what if's customs/vat ect. Less worried about that and more on quality reassurance

Everything I see posted about askoys says quality so just looking for confirmation as you have done.

I've never bought a watch from Aksoy but I have bought jewellery, and it's always been valued in the UK at significantly more than I paid for it. I would have no qualms buying from them.. They have a very loyal customer base many have been customers for years.

I'm sure others will post on this thread and let you know their thoughts.

Thanks mrsmurdo, all my fears are appeased.

I done my homework or at least the wife did they are actually an official stockist for Tissot watches they can be found on the tissot website as an approved trader. I would suggest all other makes are the same, I may buy a different make but we will see. I have a much more open mind now.

I've bought lots of jewellery in Turkey, earrings, chains, watches, I had my wedding ring made in Dalyan, I also purchased a Tissot watch for my husband in Marmaris 10 years ago, never had a problem. Go with your instincts and you should be o.k.
