Traded: BUYER BEWARE: Janez Grom instagram - Vintage_Kronos

FYI: sharing a very negative experience 4 months back with a man in Slovenia, Janez Grom. He is also on instagram as 'Vintage_Kronos' -

I posted this last year, but I've finally gotten my Omega back from servicing months later, so I am reminded of the bitter taste in my mouth from the time. Just reposting in the hopes that no one else has any negative experiences like I did. Also including instagram handle.

Got a watch through a trade with him, which was:

1. a redial with incorrect hands
2. a chronograph movement that did not work

The vintage chronograph movement (omega cal 321) has been extremely expensive to service, requiring multiple un-original parts replaced. I've also been trying to source the correct dial/hands. This and a some other issues has left me nearly $1500 USD out of pocket.

Have tried multiple times through email and whatsapp to contact him detailing all above. No response at all via any channel.

High recommend you avoid all dealings with him.
