I was wondering if anyone has ever used or heard about their services before?

Yep i ordered my son a g shock watch as it was cheaper than anywhere else i used a credit card just in case so i could claim my money back if it was a scam but sure enough it arrived and all was fine with the watch, my only gripe was a little bit slow with delivery (the tracking info seemed to suggest it was posted from france ) but i would use them again

A general Google search doesn't fill me with hope, alarm bells would be ringing going off reviews and comments made about them. I personally wouldn't risk buying from them .... and you know what they say; if it looks too good to be true ... you know the rest :-) x

They would appear to be based in Hong Kong according to their website, so could be costly if you had to return damaged/faulty goods.

I did contact them via Live Chat and they said they do not have any stores in the UK. But they claim their products are 100% genuine. Never the less i think i will give them a shot. :p

I am trying to find out where my item is. I ordered a lens over two weeks ago and became concerned quite soon that the tracking information didn't ring true. My emails received no reply so I tried using the on line system and obtained the Royal Mail tracking number. This told me that Royal mail had received the "Pre-advice" but had not recieved any actual parcel, while the Smooth Parcel tracking provided by Venture Direct claims that it was on the plane 9 days ago and was passed to Royal Mail 5 days ago. This I know to be a lie. I telephoned and was assured that I would have a response within the day, I did not, they did send me the Royal Mail tracking number I had previously obtained which advanced the situation not one jot.It may yet arrive and it may not, but I will most certainly not be using them again.

I bought a watch - 2 weeks later I have no watch and they don't respond to emails. Have contacted my bank about fraud. AVOID.
