UPDATE: Rakuten is currently at 15%...I couldn't resist...Tudor inbound. Thanks for the bead on this one. ;)
Nice! Yeah I saw it went from 12 to 2 then back to 15. I guess I should have waited. I did try to cancel and reorder but it was too late. I also confirmed with Harrods support that duties are included in the price. This is why Rakuten total is a little lower.
------------------------------------------------------------

Have you received confirmation of the cash back from Rakuten? Did anyone from Reddit confirm they were paid by Rakuten? The Rakuten discount really is what makes this an awesome deal. Thanks.
Yes, they loaded the cashback to my Rakuten account within hours of the purchase. Should fall under the 2/15 payout.

NAD, just for your information.
We all love OWD and their assortment.
I Purchased a Citizen Eco-Drive Men's Black Leather Chronograph 32MM Watch AT0000-12A in January 2023. Love the watch, however now it would not hold charge for more than a few days being fully charged before. It's my understanding that OWD has a 2 year warranty, so I contacted OWD about the logistics to have a capacitor replaced.
Here's the reply:
officialwatchdeals:
"It would need the battery capacitor replaced. My apologies but this is not covered. You can have this done at a local jeweler."

My conclusion: They did not really refurbished the watch, otherwise capacitor wouldn't die after 10 months, it should work 10-15 years.
And their 2 year warranty, at least for Eco Drive, is a joke.

My pick out of the OWD Citizen sale is the Signature Flyback Chrono for $389.25. Near Chronomaster level finishing on these and if you can handle the 44mm this is a steal.

Good review here:

Maybe y'all are having better luck, but some of the listings aren't applying the discount at checkout for me even if I type it in. I contacted OWD hoping they can straighten it out.

Sorry for your bad experience, but that is definitely good to know!

I had a capacitor die in a new watch in less than a year of ownership. It was a Seiko. Sometimes they go bad or, more likely, were bad coming out of the factory but not bad enough to trip a QC fault. It doesn’t mean that OWD didn’t refurbish the watch.

It is unfortunate that they won’t replace the capacitor for you. I can see how regular batteries would not be covered, but I agree with you that Eco-Drive capacitors should be covered. I don’t have a copy of the warranty with me to see what the fine print says. Have you tried contacting Citizen customer service? The OWD product page says they have a “Brand backed warranty” and they are a “Citizen Authorized seller,” so perhaps going directly to Citizen would yield better results.

I opted to replace the Seiko capacitor myself. It cost about $15 on Amazon, but changing a capacitor was no more difficult than changing a battery in a regular quartz watch.

Edited to add a deal:

Timex compressor style dive watch on leather strap for $136.84 with free Prime shipping. MSRP is $179.00.

When did OWD start allowing offers on their Ebay listings? Is that new?

BTW, they have some of really cool blue/green color shifting model watches on this deal. Not the promaster diver version unfortunately, that thing seemed to just go up and up in price. I think there are 3 or 4 models of these limited editions if you go through the listings.

Example ($334 on a list price of $1025):
