Paging Broke or Gaston. Watch check???? Updated.



LINK

Does this watch and this poster on this website seem legit. Broke I know was a scam sniffer for watchuseek. Gaston seems more nerdy about movements than Broke so you probably frequent these sites as well.

Squadra would be the user name for the website. He has 298 posts so I guess that is enough to be legit. Or to have his threads immediately whacked if a thief.

Thanks for any help watch nerds.

Looks legit imo. But if you do the deal, pay with a credit card through Paypal and don't do "gift". That way you can do a chargeback. Video the package opening.

That was the plan. I don't even know what the "gift" feature is.

Video?? This is what I was wondering. You get ripped off on a Paypal purchase? What is your recourse? I have only bought the other watch you checked out for me with paypal and other tiny items. That watch was only 200 bucks.

gift feature gives you no recourse, also charges the receiver no fee.

if you end up with an empty box, you have recourse through paypal, even more so if you used your credit card to pay through them. note: credit card, not debit card.

That's one fine arse watch. I doubt there are many PVD Sinn fakes around, I'm sure the ETA movement is in there as well. Not sure what you'd have to worry about? Goes to show what I know though. I love it.

Does it smell of scam like a $3800 Submariner Date though Broke?

Bump.

The e-mail has been sent. I have agreed to buy the watch.

Basically Paypal, credit card, and the previously mentioned steps are all there are for security and possibility to dispute.

What do you mean? You just type in their email address as the pay to person. It will default in goods mode which means the payment is for goods and not a gift, etc and the fees will be taken out of the amount the seller receives. Very simple process. Your shipping address should also default in the payment received message the seller will receive.

ETA: I've bought and sold hundreds of watches and other watch accessories on WUS and Timezone, and haven't really had a problem to date. I do check out the buyer or seller a good bit before going through with a transaction though.

Is that a reference to a prior transaction from your seller? Or an inside joke with Broke? That's all I'd pay for a 16610 in less-than-perfect condition.

Everything looks legit to me - I don't think someone would post on a site for nearly 3 years to scam someone on a $1500 watch. I bought my Omega Planet Ocean on TZ from someone with fewer posts and only 3 transactions and everything worked out perfectly. Good luck.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I first saw it Gary. If they have that many posts and have been a member for a while, they certainly aren't going to pick a Sinn to scam someone with. That is usually my first mode of feeling out a seller. What is their post count and do they have multiple transactions you can track by looking at their history. Then, if for whatever reason you think you need references you can go that route but I have only done that once.

Price on the Sub he mentioned seemed within reasonable range to me also.
