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...]
: Well that's kind of you!! And exactly what would you suggest?
: Just for the record, do you know of anyone over the last 14 years

: Thanks for your support!!
I would suggest that we remember the "Golden Rules" of buying before we contact any seller:
1.) If it's too good to be true, then it is. If you don't know the fair market value of the watch you're interested in, then you shouldn't be a buyer.
2.) Buy the seller, not the watch. After-all it's your responsibility to "vet" the seller. Not a bad idea to "vet" the buyer if you're selling.
