I have just ordered a pair of slippers for the grand sum of £5,95 ( reduced from £ 25,05 ). There is also a postage charge making the whole price under a tenner.

When I ordered them by telephone I was informed that I would get a free watch ---- a Daniel Hechter Paris .

Never heard of this make so assume they are a cheapo Chinese make ,  but looking on the internet Daniel Hechter watches seem to average around the hundred pound region.

Anyone know what I am getting  and how the company ( Atlas for Men ) manage this .

Even for the tenner it seems good value especially as we get a paIR OF REDUCED PRICE SLIPPERS .

There is a Wikipedia profile of the man himself - Daniel Hechter - and the Daniel Hechter brand website gives some details about the company. Just how the quality of the watches matches up to the retail prices seen on, say, Amazon, I don't know, but since the watch is a free gift, you don't have anything to lose either way. As to the origin of the Daniel Hechter watches, I would think they are essentially Chinese-made.

Seen some of these watches in those magazines you sometimes get with the paper, cant imagine many people actually wanting and paying for one but as others have said if its free you cant go wrong. Indeed some of them are £100+, but some are real cheapo things, Atlas seem to give these models away when you buy stuff from their magazine, the sort where the hands on the multi dials on the face dont move and are just there for fancy, those are the ones that will more than likely come with your slippers.

Thank you all for the replies.

I am not really bothered about the watch as it is really free but I was just curious about it.

 I shall obviously keep it for as long as it keeps going.

I always  find these cheap watches handy  for going on holiday where it doesn`t matter if they get lost/ stolen or damaged.

 With these cheap Chinese watches I have found that they either give up the ghost almost immediately or last for years until the battery gives up .

 Again thanks for taking the time to reply.

Have a look on ebay - there are lots listed that have no bids and if you look at `sold' items then the ones that have sold are going for under £10 rather than £100. If you were lucky then you might sell it for enough to get the slippers free but doubt you would end up in profit.

I have to report that my Daniel Hechter watch has arrived .

 

 It is marked on the back " Daniel Hechter for Atlas for Men " so i assume it is a cheapy  Chinese thing made for that firm .

 

 

  As was suggested the three little dials are for show only and do nothing.

 The watch looks OK and seems to work and keep reasonable time .

   I would say that it is definitely worth every single penny of the £ 00.00 it cost me !

   Must say though, the slippers were excellent . They were bought for the wife and she is very pleased with them ,

I have absolutely no idea how to send a photograph\  

 

I  don`t have a camera and would not know how to send a picture from my old fashioned Nokia telephone .

 

 

 The most up to date I have regarding photography is putting your head under a black cloth while holding a stick with flash powder !

I won`t get much of a refund from my £00.00 outlay.!

 

 I am wearing the watch right now . Looks OK and seems to be keeping reasonable time .

As I said before I keep these cheap ( free ?) watches for going away such as on holiday or when I had to go into hospital. If it gets lost or stolen I won`t lose any sleep over it.

Cheap made in sweat shops tat sold online and from those Sunday newspapers supplements. Slippers for a fiver, I’ll bet your missus will be pleased when she opens them on Christmas Day.

:laughing2dw: :laughing2dw:

 I always wondered if anybody actually bought anything from these small catalogs that come in the Sunday papers but now I know they do.

The good lady already has the slippers and says they are excellent.

t had a look at the watch  box and it does say made in China .

 

 Never bought anything else from those catalogues but  the memsahib did seem keen on the slippers as they were wide fitting,
