If someday, I will want to buy a Rolex, I will only buy it from a authorized dealer. eBay is only for buying cute looking watches that cost a maximum of $100. I once bought a cute looking automatic watch at eBay for $80 with a 2 year warranty. The moment I received the watch, I noticed that it was broken. I paid for the postage to send it back. It was so obvious that it broken, but the seller stubbornly refused to have it replaced or repaired. He offered to send it back to me broken at my expense because he knew that I don't have the watch as proof anymore and he can claim anything he wants to. The postage for sending the package back and forth was becoming so expensive for me that I told him to keep the watch as a "Christmas " present. Since then, I quit buying items at eBay. It's all nice and well to purchase things on eBay if the merchandise isn't faulty. Once the merchandise is faulty, then it really becomes messy and complicated to push your rights through as a customer.
eBay is excellent for buying cheap items, and cheap items only! This rating system at eBay is also baby kids stuff. If you want to buy a Rolex watch without risk, do yourself a favor and go to a dealership. Spend a couple of hundred dollars more at a dealershop, because if G'd forbid, something goes wrong, you won't regret it!
