Why does anyone buy stoneage watches these days


It tells the time and is automatic, hardly stone age. Plus some old watches are worth more than your house!
Meathotukdeals14/10/2019 18:36

Errr. Because some people like watches? Too challenging for ya?


I think he means: why buy watches with actual mechanisms and reliability instead of cheapo electronics that need charged four times a week and have built in obsolescence?

Ive had one of these for 20 years and it's bullet proof(unless they've changed the mechanism in the meantime) even hit it on walls and stuff and sti runs fine unlike the wife's tissot which bit the dust after 2 years even though it was well looked after

Bought four watches from creation so far and yet to be charged. They were all marked as measuring equipment

Because you can't beat a nice watch on your wrist.

I was reading up on the site. Did you request that they were marked as measuring devices and which courier did you go with? Also Did the watches come in their original retail box? Tia as interested in the deal.

Free DHL = 100%


I order a watch from this site. I had to pay £32 to DHL for my "free delivery" ..

Your sources are in all honesty outdated. Back in the day Creation did ship watches declared as measuring devices, but those days are gone. If you opt for FREE shipping via DHL, you WILL pay the applicable fees.
Every imported order, other than EU via DHL that I have purchased has had import duty on orders above £15. Been caught around 15 times.
Would this look nice on a leather strap ?

I am citing benjyFJh in this very thread about having watches declared as measuring devices. They did not reply yet so will take your word for it. It also seems that using royal mail option is also no guarantee of avoiding extra charges as creation may have been flagged. Might take a chance on this watch.

I understand but the subject has a long history on these forums and on watch forums for that matter. Creation clearly work with DHL and it makes good enough business sense that it allows Creation to post goods FREE of charge.

From the Creation website. “For countries where we offer Free DHL Shipping, the order total needs to be greater than US $75. If the total is less than US$ 75, there will be $8 charge. Please note that customs taxes / import duties are not included in our price. It is the buyer’s responsibility to pay for any customs taxes or import duties imposed by the customs of the buyer’s country.”

Regards Royal Mail, the odds are that the watch (shipped minus box) will arrive without incurring charges, and most of the circa £100 watches appear to be posted from Ireland.

Its a tough decision to make. Go with DHL and get hit with the customs costs or via Royal mail and lose out on the original retail box. If i go with DHL, do you happen to know what the additional costs would come to aprox? Just trying to work out if i am better off buying with creation or within UK.

I am anal about having the box and papers for any watch, but on. £75 watch, I’d not worry personally.

Regards DHL fees, they “should” be circa £30 to £35 based on 20% VAT and handling fee, so £105 to £115 delivered with Box

Royal Mail is now £13 so that route is &”£88 minute original box and with a small chance of fees.

But you also have free air mail which is maybe 60/40 in your favour to incur fees.
Edited by: "Baldricky" 14th Oct 2019
I'd agree, box and papers only relevant on luxury stuff.
Free airmail is my preferred delivery method with Creation.

Because they work without the reliance on elcectrickery - so you don't need to charge it up,
unlike the nice new 'smart' watches (and cars) that "they" can turn off or turn off the elcectrickery supply - look at LA at the mo for the latest social experiment
tin foil hat glued on ;-))

when 'the' bomb drops this watch might still work, your wrist might not tho'

I recently ordered a watch from them via free airmail hoping I’d avoid customs charges. Alas not a chance. Delivered via Royal Mail who added customs duty as well as a handling fee. Seen many others who had the same outcome on a previous thread. I think RM recognise Creation Watches now due to high quantities of UK orders, so will always add those fees as it’s easy pickings for them.
I have this. Looks nice on a leather strap.38668575-kcw9R.jpg
Creation have a few models of the similar level Orient 3 Star for less money.

Nope, mine was delivered 14 days ago by DHL. Quite expected the charges. I’ve still yet to receive any.
Not UK seller! Import charges of around 34% apply on the purchase price!
I have the black version - SNKL23. I got it for £71 from CW but got hit with import charges of £19.86 and I used air mail.
