Here's the real kicker though.
In Response To: Analysis of a fake Seamaster ()

: And the truly scary part? This watch sold for $100 on an

: avoid one this goofy!

I emailed this gentleman about 6 hours before the auction ended to tell him that it was a fake. At least one other bidder retracted their bid because they were informed by a third party that it was not genuine. slEazBAY keeps a log of this accessible to all, so I guess he didn't know or didn't care.

I received an email from him today (day after) and he said "thank you" and thats it. What I don't get is this:

1) If you would spend $100 on a watch wouldn't you do some research into it, even if you were going to buy it from the net? I think a lot of people could tell its not $1750 worth of craftsmanship.

2) Does the seller have the right to complain to slEazBAY about me, because technically I interfered with the auction? Considering the fact that he makes no guarentee of its authenticity?

I am also very glad to finally contribute to the site that has given me a wealth of information concerning Omega watches.
