FAQ

Why use DATE@SIX?  It's simple. DATE@SIX saves you time and money while eliminating the stress of buying a luxury watch. Because there are so many brands and models to choose from, with many pushy salespeople not looking out for your best interest, the buying process can be frustrating and confusing. Our clients typically don't have the time or knowledge to make smart buying decisions, nor do they have the leverage and connections to get the best deal. By dealing directly with us and never with the dealers, we make it significantly easier for you.

 

Who are your typical clients?  Many of our clients are busy, career-driven women who are engaged and looking to buy an engagement present for their partners. Historically, men have spent a significant amount of time and money researching and buying the perfect engagement ring for their partners, and today, women also want to buy something of equal significance and meaning for their partners. Other past clients included those looking to buy special anniversary, birthday or "just because" gifts, and either did not have the time or knowledge to navigate the industry.

 

What does the service cost?  Pricing is simple based on the price of a watch that the client purchases. There is an upfront find and search fee due before work begins and a % savings fees based on the amount of savings generated on the back end. Pricing can be reviewed in detail during the initial consultation.

 

How long does the process take from start to finish?  Transactions can usually be completed within 3 weeks. However, for best results, we recommend starting 1-2 months before you need ultimate delivery (depending on new or pre-owned) to ensure adequate time for the initial consultation, selecting the right options to choose from, searching our network of dealers, negotiating the best price, and executing the transaction. In certain situations, transactions can be expedited in 1 week (with an expedite fee), depending on the timepiece that a client is looking for.

 

What brands are you able to buy?  We have established relationships with authorized dealers at all the popular major brands including, Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Jaeger LeCoultre, Breguet, Blancpain, Tag Heuer, Tudor, Panerai, Zenith, Cartier, and IWC. For pre-owned watches, we have an extensive network of trusted dealers from around the world that we have previously purchased from or dealt with, so there is typically a wide variety of inventory to choose from.

 

Where do the watches come from?  All of our new modern watches come from authorized retailers around the world and come with full manufacturer’s warranties and service. We guarantee 100% authenticity of all our watches. We don't buy from non-authorized or grey-market dealers for new watches. All pre-owned watches come from our extensive network of dealers, and typically come with a limited duration and level of warranty and not full warranties due to the inherent nature of buying pre-owned.

 

What type of payment do you accept? We accept all major debit and credit cards, PayPal, Venmo and bank wire transfers.

 

How did you come up with the name DATE@SIX?  The name DATE@SIX is a whimsical pun for my preferential style of watch where the date window is located at six o’clock on the dial, as opposed to other common placements at 3 or between 4 and 5. It's also a nod to how and when I received my most precious watch, a watch given to me by my wife while on a date in Boston at six o'clock.
