I stumbled across an Instagram advert for The Independent Collective in reference to REC watches so I clicked through. Didn't know they existed before this so sent an email with some questions to test the waters. I cannot speak highly enough of the promptness, quality and professionalism from Nick. A+++ from me. Ended up purchasing the Bolt 68 from the sale page. Transaction was easy and delivery was within 2 business days from Sydney to Brisbane. Watch is exactly as described and is a winner. Will be doing business with Nick again for sure.

Saw the Bomberg Watch online and made an appointment for when I was near the showroom. Well worth the visit and a interesting range of watches. nick has a wealth of knowledge and a passion for watches. So impressed, I bought another watch (their last Bomberg in stock) Great products, cool showroom and excellent service. Do yourself a favour, grab your mates and get a watch each for the Wolf Pack!


I purchased a Bomberg watch from the Independent Collective a while back and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I have ever had and it was all done via emails. I asked a question and within a very short period of time I had my answer. I asked a few more questions and the answers were there again in a very short period of time. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and it was on my door step on Wednesday morning. 36 hours from order to delivery. Wow. Watch was perfect. Price was perfect. Emails perfect. In fact everything was perfect. How many times can you say that about a purchase or a buying experience? Not many. I more then highly recommend this company and the people who run the Independent Collective. Thank you so much.

Amazing service, questions answered really quickly, delivery was speedy, and watch was extremely well wrapped. After service was mind blowing - was offered a free strap, completely out of the blue and unexpected. Very happy, and no hesitation in recommending. Oh ant the watch is better than I thought it would be. Bought for more occasional use with my others, but already my main wear.
