I read the new owner is Globally Ltd. Anyone heard of them?.

I wonder what will happen with those customers with Watford`s warranties; "assist and support" does`nt imply it will be free.

They say, "Information relating to warranty and returns procedures for existing Savastore.com customers whose products are not covered by a manufacturer’s warranty will be provided within the next 48 hours".

"Watford Electronics, the elephant's graveyard of great channel names like Carrera, Time, and Tiny has been sold to Globally.

Globally Ltd was founded on February 5. Its registered address is Jessa House, 1 Finway, Luton. Watford Electronics also operates from that address"

they have technically bought themselves out, possibbly for tax/financial reasons

Watford Electronics left debts of £3.5m.

Looking at some of the results from other well known suppliers, could lead to further closures or drastic cutbacks within 2007.

I wonder if Watford or the other subsidiaries will arise as a strong fighting force from the ashes again, they seem to have done so in the past.

On 7th February Globally Ltd said on their website:

"Information relating to warranty and returns procedures for existing Savastore.com customers whose products are not covered by a manufacturer’s warranty will be provided within the next 48 hours".

That was 2 weeks ago, and no further update!. It does not auger well for those Savastore customers without a manufacturers warranty.

3.4 million in debt.
But like Tiny, Time etc i'm sure they will rise from the ashes.
But of course not take on the warranties from the "old" company!

Until company law is changed to prevent companies going into administration leaving their creditors and customers in a heap and then starting off again under a new name this sort of thing will just go on

Until then, don't buy warranties that are not insurance backed and NEVER pay other than by credit card
