Re: Heed these messingers
In Response To: more for the paranoid ()

: If you want to be a bit more careful, look a
: bit deeper into the feedback to see what
: recent seller transactions look like. I
: think I can remember some watches which
: looked too good to be true where the guy has
: some positive feedback (say 30-40) but only
: been on ebay few months and all the entries
: are where the guy buys a pencil for 25c or
: batteries for $1 or something trivial like
: that.

: But I would echo the guys, I've had some
: disappointments but no cases of outright not
: receiving the watch (so far). And many of
: the disappointments come from
: "irrational exuberance" in my
: bidding and expectations.

: Oh yes, and if you are collecting Heuers, 30
: mins of researching OtD a week is a decent
: vacination against fakes & frankens.

If you heed everything you read here you have gained a very useful start to a happy collection.
Go For it!
But remember what the crew said. even opening a box. its awesome
