1) why do you want your money back? is the watch defective? 

2) what are the terms and conditions mentioned in invoice? .if you had made online payment of Rs 1410 where was question of paying cash of Rs 1410 on delivery 

3) you have to return the goods within period mentioned in invoice 

4) if site refuses to refund your payment you can move consumer forum and seek refund with interest 

5) however legal costs will be more than the refund amount

Hi, you have to file a complaint in the consumer forum for deficiency of services.

2. You can also lodge a police complaint for the fraud committed by the company.

1. You had made the payment online but the courier was sent as cash on delivery. This is clearly case of cheating and impermissible trade practice.

2. You should not have paid the amount sought as COD when you had already made the payment online at the time of placing the order. This is the only weak link in your case.

3. You should move the consumer forum to recover the amount paid along with compensation.

You have a very god case which can be redressed by a consumer forum.  The cost for filing will be the court fee fixed by the court on the basis of compensation amount claimed by you towards the mental tortures and other issues due to their deficiency of service.  The consumer court fee differs from one state to another, you can enquire about it in the court office itself. Besides, this, if you would like to engage a lawyer to fight your case the lawyer fee will be separate from this and the lawyer fee will depend on the lawyer who you may engage. 
Before all these, you first issue a legal notice demanding the compensation due to their cheating act which caused you mental agony and have been depressed about it. After this notice failing to invoke proper response you may resort to further legal action as envisaged in law.
