Buying watches online in Australia through Amazon

Everything you need to know about buying watches from Amazon Australia based on countries that already have Amazon

Toys, clothing and cosmetics are just a few examples of the products Amazon offers, but did you also know you can purchase watches through them too?

Be it a jewel-encrusted decadent timepiece, that steampunk-esque pocketwatch or the fitness tracker smartwatch that your heart desires, Amazon has all.

So how will Amazon Australia’s launch affect the way Aussies shop? The answer is massively! But don’t panic: we’ve outlined everything you’ll need to know to help with that transition period.


Does Amazon Australia sell watches?

Right now? No. But once Amazon Australia launches fully they will certainly sell watches, which will make picking up that perfect present oh so easy.

Do Amazon UK/US ship watches to Australia?

Yes. For the moment, if you’re wanting to purchase a watch through either Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com, both the US and UK are happy to ship to Australia.

How long does shipping take?

There are several shipping options on offer to Australia from both Amazon US and Amazon UK.

Amazon US shipment times:

Standard: 9–12 working days

Expedited: 7–11 working days

Priority: 2–5 working days

Amazon UK shipment times:

Standard: 5–10 working days

Priority: 4–6 working days

How much will shipping cost?

The shipping options available are charged at standard rates plus additional charges per kilogram (UK) or pound (US). Pricing is outlined below:

Amazon US shipping:

Standard: US$4.99 + US$2.99/lb (approximately AUD$6.22 + AUD$3.70/lb)

Expedited: US$7.99 + US$3.49/lb (approximately AUD$9.88 + AUD$4.31/lb)

Priority: US$29.99 + US$3.99/lb (approximately AUD$37.07 + AUD$4.93/lb)

Amazon UK shipping:

Standard: £10.99 + £3.99/kg (approximately AUD$17.86 + AUD$6.48/kg)

Priority: £19.99 + £2.49/item (approximately AUD$32.49 + AUD$4.11/item)

What brands of watches do Amazon sell?

Amazon offer a vast range of watch brands. Whether you’re after a Fitbit fitness tracker or a Michael Kors dress piece, you’ll be able to source it through Amazon. They even offer high-end brands like U-BOAT and Rolex.

Is Amazon cheaper for watches?

Amazon price everything competitively. Once Amazon Australia launches you’ll find it hard to beat them on price. However right now, international shipping fees from the US or UK are proving a factor in their inability to be more successful here in Australia. Watch this space!
