Today, July 5th, after no less than 4 emails telling me I may cancel my order as it is delayed beyond any given date, I received the piece via FedEx. To add insult to injury, there was no protective plastic on the watch, it was obviously used, the crocodile band had a stretch mark in the hole and was showing wear with a crease, the buckle had scratches on it and the entire watch looked used. It was not properly packed, in fact, it was literally placed in the box unsecured.
Finally, it was marked 184/200, and not *** of 100, so an additional 200 were made, not labeled Swiss made and sold for the same price. A clear bait and switch as the first ones posted showed Swiss made. This one received and the watch posted on the Shop NBC site has no such Swiss markings. A limited Swiss Made 18K gold watch of one hundred pieces turned into the hundred that were Swiss made, but I never got one and 200 NOT MARKED SWISS, obviously cheaper but greed to sell more of these models pushed the customers to wait while cheaper versiolns were made.
To all the customers who bought the Philip 18K gold watch, please note it is not Swiss made as originally advertised and 200 were very quickly made to satisfy demand. Return them and get your money back. This was a clear cut 'BAIT AND SWITCH."
