Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
I'm sorry if I keep doing something wrong, but I have tried to be honest about the dial in my posts and in any of my communication with interested members from any source (here, or MWR, or eBay).
The watch itself is in excellent condition and original, without ever having been polished. From what I can tell, it seems to be a redial on what is a perfectly good watch. The original owner (Ralf B) stands by his assertion that the dial is original but I accept that the dial raises many questions. As a result, I have tried to be honest in my MWR post about the controversy surrounding the dial, and also make this clear to anyone who is contacting me about the watch.
I do not know if you believe that the controversy surrounding the dial means I should never sell it to anyone, ever. If someone makes an informed decision, that should be acceptable, should it not? If you think I am over-pricing, then I would love to know what is a reasonable asking price for it given everything we know. I will adjust it accordingly. I have tried to reach out to ask others about pricing but I've heard anything from 4,000 to 5,200...
I just saw and realized that I forgot to copy the bit about the dial into my eBay post (as I did in the MWR one) but will do so once I get home.
Let me know if there is anything else you think I should do in order to be completely realistic and honest about selling this watch -- whether that is my asking price or in the description. I'm still new to this and not trying to misrepresent anything, and I hope I don't give off that impression. As I said, I will update the eBay post to reflect this in a few hours - thanks.
