Exclamation Port Shopping Philip Stein Teslar "Oprah" Watches

We recently went on the Disney Wonder to Alaska. We had a wonderful time. We attended the Port Shopping guide meeting and found out Diamonds International had Philip Stein Watches. Years ago the watches had TESLAR chips in them and were given away on Oprah's Favorite things. We went in and asked for the Teslar chip watches and purchased four watches, got home and found out the chips are not Teslar, they are made by Philip Stein now. Teslar is developing thier own jewelry, but Philip Stein is using old literature saying they have teslar chips. Buyer Beware. If you love the Philip Stein watches, buy them, If you are looking for the TESLAR Chip, go to Teslar online. Thanks to Disney Cruise Line, Diamonds International is refunding our money and we are returning the watches. We will deal directly with Teslar. Here is part of an email from Teslar: ..."Since we broke up, Philip Stein has been doing this all along and it has hurt us because people don't know and they think that it is us, or that something is wrong with our technology!!!!! We hear it all the time from people like yourself! For awhile, they even put their watches in boxes with Teslar on it and Teslar literature! You might mention this on Philip Steins blog and other blogs to warn people, especially about the cruise ships. Also Philip Stein needs to know that this is not correct! Most reputable stores have dropped them because of this, but they are still going strong on the cruise lines. God bless them with their product, just don't try to sell their metal alloy natural frequency for our technology!"

Curious if Diamonds International told you the watches had Teslar chips? Also curious if the DCL Shopping Guide told you the watches had Teslar chips?

Kudos to DCL from assisting in you getting a refund. That's going above and beyond!

Thanks for this info. The DCL onboard shopping guides are still saying they are the same watches that Oprah has given away on her Favorite Things shows for 2 or 3 years.
This is definately a situation that the buyer should do their research and know what they are buying.

I'm guessing your money is being refunded since DI is an approved retailer of the cruiseline.
