False pretensesEdit

To give the impression of being a legitimate business site, the checkout operation pretends to take your identity, address and credit card over a secure link. However, it is using ordinary http (not https) and there is no security certificate indicating a secure encrypted connection.

DiscountWatches SSL

Pretense of a secure transaction

False claim from the site's Privacy Policy:

How secure is your information?

* We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by
using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

Evidence of fraudEdit

Each manufacturer whose copyright is being blatantly infringed provides warnings of these scam operations. For example, see the Breitling front page which states

BEWARE OF FRAUDS
Do not buy any Breitling products on the Internet:
99% of the Breitling products for sale on the Internet are fakes. The others are
second-hand watches or models of doubtful origin.

Invalid contact detailsEdit

The trailer at the bottom of the page gives a contact number, +1(707)736-6165 but if you call it, you find there is no such number. DiscountWatches trailer
