Omega DeVille Quartz Gold 14k $250

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

Up for sale is my Omega DeVille Quartz gold plated Ref 191.0091 from 1981. Gold Plated, 14k.

6.5 x 29 x 33 mm

The Gold plating is in pretty good condition and shows no major signs of wear, although there are some marks on the case. It's 30 years old and it was worn.

This is a rather unique piece with an Omega 1351 caliber quartz movement. There is an inscription on the back (purchased that way) which can easily be removed as its not deep.

This watch originally sold for around $350 in 1981! Thats close to $900 in todays money. The 191.0091 only sold from 1980-82 and is a pretty rare bird.

I will let this little gem go for $250

Sadly I don't have the original manual for the operation of the quartz movement but I can supply a link to scans for the buyer. It has a DST quickset feature which is really very interesting on a watch this old.

jblavender@gmail.com or PM. I'm not a dealer or anything, just a watch enthusiast. I can answer any questions quickly.







Thanks for looking and best regards,

Joe

Good deal here. I would pick it up, but I have too many watches as it is.
GL with the sale.

It was an awesome watch until I was scammed out of it by a member here. Lost the watch and the money. I think I will be more selfish with my things from now on.

Instead of marking this sold, I think "stolen" is more appropriate.

How did that happen?

I am interested to hear what went wrong with the transaction as well, there is a feedback thread you can leave a comment about it and maybe some one here can help.

It's comlicated but basically the buyer posed as two people. Person A sent the payment and shipping details using a bogus PP recipt. Person B simultaniosly sent the same payment. So it appeared to me that person A had sent the payment. After sending the watch and tracking info to person A, person B emails and says "hey I sent payment for the watch, I never heard anything from you." long story short, here I am with a paper trail which makes me look like the crook. Not much I can do. I didn't think to match up the transaction numbers.

Top tip: only communicate using the person's paypal email address. This way they can't claim to be 2 different people. Also make them email you the transaction number for your own paper trail records. I'm usually careful but this time I wasn't looking closely enough at the details.

Person B obviously filed an "item not received" only 24 hours after I shipped. Not much I can do as paypal only protects the scammers in all cases.

By the way this person has multiple accounts on this forum. If the moderators want details I will provide them.

Seller beware.

"nzqyn" was the member name. He listed other names as references but since I'm not interested in slandering anyone, i wont list them. I'd imagine they're all fake accounts though.

OK now I have to say something.

June 2, 2011
Sent the OP a message and sent $250 paypal payment, since the watch is not listed as sold and the OP listed his email. With the following:

Unique Transaction ID # is 4J221975LD6579802
Sent to: Joseph Lavender (The recipient of this payment is Verified)
Email: jblavender@gmail.com


June 4, 2011
Haven't heard back from OP so sent an email to listed email address. Received following reply:

"Wait, I sent the watch to a lady in Arlington Texas and sent the tracking info out last night. You sent me money before establishing communication with me ? I'm very confused
Sent from my iPhone"

To which my reply is:

"After a sale you are supposed to change the listing to "sold", you have not so I assumed it would be available. It is too bad the watch is sold. Could you send me a refund then? I apologize for the inconvenience.

And his reply:
"I feel like like I'm being scammed here. The receipt sent to me for the paypal was bogus. I'm sitting my attorney right this moment. I know what is happening here. Send back the watch and we'll call it a draw.
Sent from my iPhone"

To which my reply was:
"Wait you shipped me the watch? I thought you said you shipped it to a lady in Arlington? "

And his reply:
"I did. The only money I received was from a guy named James. I see how thus scam works! You send me the money then conveniently ask for a refund the day after I ship. I'm tracking this all down. Shoulda made sure of what I do for a living before you pulled this one. I get the watch back and you get your money back and we call it a draw. Deal? Otherwise I'm gonna get upset.
Sent from my iPhone"

My last reply:

"The payment of $250 was sent, and the Paypal Unique Transaction ID # is 4J221975LD6579802. Could you please check to see if this is really you? Perhaps I sent it to the wrong address?

I opened a paypal dispute just now only because I did send the money and you claimed you never received it. You can even call paypal to check whether the money was sent.

On Styleforum I have bought from members "Menno878", "isshinryu101", "stu00a", "hanker565", "onix", "Holdfast", "330CK", etc. You can message any one of them to check whether I had dealt with them. Unless of course you come to the conclusion that we are all colluding to con a meager $250 from you."

Judge for yourselves.

It is easy for moderators to verify the number of accounts associated with IP addresses, so if they want to check, please do.
