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.

SCAM...here's the original thread that this scammer cut and paste from:
Note the the copy and paste job from the bottom half of the original thread.
: I have for sale Rolex Explorer II ref. 16570 L-series (y. 1990).
: The watch was 1st serviced by Rolex Service Center in New York in
: 1995. The watch was also cleaned & detailed again about 10
: years ago (not by Rolex). At that time, the case was polished to
: resemble some of the "modern" Rolex watches. Since
: then, the watch has spent most of the time in storage. However,
: I believe that only synthetic oils have been used to lubricate
: its movement. Since these do not deteriorate like the old
: mineral oils, the watch still functions perfectly and keeps time
: well within the COSC specs (about +2s/day) on my wrist. Despite
: the watch being serviced in the past, the dial & hands
: appear to be in perfect condition (i.e. no damage, scratches, or
: stains of any kind).
: The watch will come with everything pictured:
: - The original Warranty / Chronometer Certificate (now expired)
: - Green warranty holder
: - Original hang tag
: - Both booklets
: Price is $4,400 USD. (Free shipping within the CONUS).
: Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions that
: you may have.
