Cheap watches like Daniel Wellington ones in AliExpress
Are there any originals?
Nope. At the moment there aren’t any sellers offering original Daniel Wellington watches on AliExpress, but if you find a watch on the platform and are having doubts about it’s originallity, here is a few clues to help you tell the difference (you don’t want to end up paying a fortune for a replica). If you see any of these symbols, you can be sure you are dealing with an original product.
AliExpress introduced this icon fairly recently. Sellers use this guaranteed authenticity symbol to prove that they products are original, in this case Daniel Wellington watches. Even if you get really unlucky and get a replica, the seller will have to refund you up to double the price originally paid and AliExpress will punish them severely.
Another good clue is the price: AliExpress has better prices than most other webs, but nobody is going to give you any freebies. Trust your instinct: if someone is offering Daniel Wellington watches for 20€, they are definitely replicas.
White label brands, a good alternative to replicas
Take a look at these Chinese brands offering watches inspired by Daniel Wellington watches:
Some of these are more similar (Cagary, Geneva, Seseden and Chronos) than others (Curren, Jedir and Megir), but we included them anyway, they’re definitely worth it.
Personally, I’ve only tried watches by Geneva, Curren and Megir, all of which we’ve written about, and I can assure you they are really good quality.
Other white label brands
There are plenty more “white label” brands making watches inspired by Daniel Wellington, thought their name might not be as known, to find them, go to this search.
Important: You can still find some replicas in AliExpress, usually featuring a modified logo, so if you are having any doubts, just ask the seller to send you real pictures or check the ratings sections, you might be able to find some pictures here too.
Bonus: straps for Daniel Wellington
If you are looking for nylon straps like the Daniel Wellington ones, you can find some pretty cheap ones in AliExpress. All you have to do is type in Nylon strap on the search tab, you’ll get loads of results. If you want something a bit more specific (16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm, 24mm, etc…) all you have to do is add the size you are looking for: Nylon Strap 20mm. If you don’t know what size you need, try taking a look at the size and conversion charts offered by sellers in their product page.

Do you want a cheap original Daniel Wellington watch; Amazon is the answer
If you aren’t convinced by the Chinese brands in AliExpress and would rather buy an original at a better price, Amazon is the place for you. Prices might be higher than AliExpress, but you will be buying an original Wellington watch from one of the best online shops.
The best part about purchasing a Daniel Wellington watch on Amazon is that they are so much cheaper than the official webpage. Prices may vary slightly, but I’ve even seen 50% discounts. This is better than any outlet.
Other than the reliability, another of the biggest advantages of Amazon is how fast their shipping is. You might have to pay a bit more, but you’ll get your Daniel Wellington a lot sooner :).
By the way, Amazon is now offering a 30 day trial of their Amazon Prime service, through which you can get next day free shipping. Then if you don’t want to pay the annual fee, all you have to do is unsubscribe before your trial ends.
Why is Amazon so cheap?
Amazon is a market place used by thousands of sellers. Given how many offers there is, many lower their prices to gain more visibility.
And of course, you don’t work have to worry about replicas: Amazon keeps a very close eye on replicas, so if you see a super cheap watch, you can be 99.9% sure it’s an original Daniel Wellington watch.
Where should I get my watch?
Throughout this article we’ve talked about what we believe to be the best shops offering cheap Daniel Wellington watches (both white label and original). Both platforms are excellent, although they both have their advantages and disadvantages. With Amazon you will pay more but shipping will be faster; in AliExpress they are cheaper but they’re white label. Both options are a lot cheaper than getting them in the official shop.
All in all, its up to you to consider the pros and cons and decide which one is the best for you. This will ensure you make the best purchase possible.
