I would be somewhat leary of Ashford.Com. They are based here in Houston and like to play musical location. As in changing their address several times.
I am not knocking your purchase in anyway, in fact congratulations! However, I have been to both "storefronts" here in Houston of "Ashford.com", and "wristwatch.com" and they're both not someplace I would buy anything from no matter what warranty I received from them.
: I purchased a Seamaster Pro Chrono from Ashford with no serial
: number and saved quite a bit over an "authorized"
: dealer. Also their service was very good and the watch was
: shipped in all boxes (inner red leather and outer white
: box) with manual except it did not have the Omega warranty.
: Ashford did include their three year warranty with their
: warranty card. How good is it? I don't know because I
: haven't gotten that far yet. However if you read the
: "Omega horror story" web site buying from an
: authorized dealer is not a guarranty of good service.
: Bottom line is without the gray market I would not have
: been able to afford this watch. Because of it I have one.
: I had a buddy purchase a Bond Seamaster from Costco with
: serial number intact with the warranty card. But because
: Costco is not an authorized dealer the warranty card was
: not stamped and was therefore useless. I would rather have
: a three year "Ashford" warranty than a useless
: Omega warranty. Enjoy your Seamaster and don't worry about
: the serial number.
