It's true, the LIV watches are a desirable price considering the retail cost of a 7750 movement, sapphire glass, titanium strap, ceramic bezel all bundled together for less than £1500.
BUT, if you are in the UK and receive a faulty/damaged/unfit for purpose watch, LIV fully expect the UK buyer to pay for return shipping and insurance (£130) if you request a refund as opposed to an exchange/replacement.
My first watch from them would stop every night after wearing all day, and not run for the claimed 40hours it's marketed at. This means every morning I would have to wind the £900+ watch and reset the time.
I had to pay for a return to the US in order request a refund. I am out of pocket now by a couple of hundred quid for the initial VAT and import taxes paid to receive the watch, in addition to paying for the return because it was faulty.
Following the return of this I ordered a different model (the highest priced flagship on LIV's website), and it arrived with something stuck to the glass on the inner side of the watch!
I've requested a refund but they won't accept liability and pay for the return fees. They have offered me an exchange with an offer of shipping (percentage of) offset against a replacement, but I want my money back, and I'll be avoiding the brand unless they launch a local UK stockist I can walk into and be served face to face.
To summarize: It's cost me money to have two faulty watches sent out to me and return them to LIV. One was faulty through no fault of anyone, but the second was sent out with a manufacturer defect that should have been picked up by LIV prior to despatch. LIV refuse to pay for return shipping regardless.
I'm out of pocket, and will have no watches to show for this and a sour experience as a result.
I will never risk buying from LIV again, they assume no accountability and believe it is fair for the buyer to suffer costs to receive unfit for purpose goods. It is not their company policy to reimburse international postage even if they've sent out a watch that's sub-standard.
I'm happy to evidence my experience with anyone that requires reassurance. The watches are nice, the purchase is a gamble. UK consumer rights offer greater protection, buy British (or at least buy goods that have already landed here where you have only the price on the tag to pay)!
