swiss and luxury web site???

Hi everyone,
I am new on this forum and I will like to buy a Rolex. Before to find this forum, my knowledge about Rolex was almost zero, but in few days I've found so many information about it
My favorite is: ROLEX Black or Blue Diamond DateJust 116234. Do not ask me why, just i love it.
I found this web site http://www.swissandluxury.com/
Is any one of you in buying from this site?
Also I am looking to buy from here.
For me, seems not to god...I could not find any reviews about it...only for swiss luxury...
Thank you!

sorry for my english

Their prices are too cheap.
Their images are stolen from other websites.
They stole the text from other website.

Avoid them! If it looks too good to be true it is!

compare the pictures between these two sites:
http://www.santblanc.com/2010-18kt-r...mm-116185.html
http://www.swissandluxury.com/2010_1...m_msrp_355.htm

Avoid them!

That watch has been customized. It will not be serviced by RSC should the need arise. I suggest you find a genuine piece. When it comes to Rolex there are no bargains to be had.

Anything called Swiss Luxury is enough of a red flag to get me running.

There is a recent thread in Watch Out where Goldwatchco was found to be stealing pics, photo-shopping out scratches, and passing them off as their own. Be careful.

I would advice you not to purchase from the Diamond District. That's the type of place that only an expert can navigate (I am not one for sure). Only God knows if the watch you'll be buying is 100% Rolex, it may have aftermarket parts etc. IMHO I would go up to WEMPE, the extra $ you'll spend is small compared to the peace of mind of knowing you bought a 100% Rolex and not one from Canal St.
If you are looking just to see whats out there great! I would also suggest that if you are thinking of used you should check the trusted sellers here. Good prices and peace of mind....probably no taxes either

Meantime enjoy the hunt!
BTW what are you looking for?

Swissandluxury.com stole my name and address and are using it at Whois

Swissandluxury.com are criminals. They have stolen my name and address and are using it as their domain registration data at Whois. Basically they are doing business on my name and address, but below are their real names and bank accounts as proof of the identity theft and the scam.

I placed an "order" on www.swissandluxury.com (they do not provide any of their phone, street address, mailing address or even a telephone on that website, so I asked them for their address where to send a check or a money order. Here's what they replied revealing info on the potential owner of this SCAM, that uses my name and my address as the Whois record for their fraudulent business:

Dear (my name),
Thank you for your recent online purchase with Swiss&Luxury.com!

The only payment method accepted for international orders is bank wire transfer. International check clearing can take from 4 - 6 weeks.
Even though it's easy to issue a check, it may not be easy for the recipient to cash the check. That's why we don't accept the checks from international orders.

I hope for your understanding!

The following is the wire transfer information for payment of your invoice.

Lloyds TSB Bank
1 Legg St, Essex CM1 1JS, United Kingdom
Company address: 6 Valiant Way, London E6 5XN, United Kingdom

Account number: 22861068
Sort code: 30-99-64

IBAN: GB52LOYD30996422861068
BIC: LOYDGB21169

Account name: Robert Pyc

Total amount in USD currency: 2,425.00

Once the payment has been arranged, please send us a confirmation e-mail.

You may fax or e-mail a bank transaction receipt so we may better identify receipt of the funds, our fax number is 800-930-6527.

Looking forward to your reply!


Best regards,
Chris Franklyn

I suppose they've been reported months ago? How come their website is still online? Also they have stole my name and address and are using it as their domain's whois data. Their real name is ROBERT PYC (the guy who receives successful bank wires in the UK) and Chris Franklyn(the guy who signs the emails) and in their ordering email message they provide the following as their phone number: +44 20 8816 8955.
