Sinn_356_03c8x6.jpg

Have a 4 month old Sinn 356 chrono that is keeping ridiculous time. I've had to set the time once in the 4 months I've owned it, because it was 2 mintes off and bugging me. Really accurate modified Swiss Valjoux 7750 movement. I've worn it sparingly. 93%.

I'm really open to other watches in a trade, if right. I'll add cash, or a brand new Fuji x100 to sweeten the deal, or both.

Looking for $1400 overnighted, PayPal'd or best offer. Will email pictures upon request. Everything included as new, including receipt from WatchBuys.

Best,
Pat

Great watch, great brand. Just picked myself up a 656 over summer, great watch.

I agree ^ Sinn is an exceptional brand and known for great quality. I had an 857 that I sold awhile back.. one of those "geesh, why the heck did I do that?" moments...

Good choice.

I really have to say, the time to make that decision would have been anywhere throughout the negotiation process while I was looking at pictures, agreeing to pricing, etc. Once my friend--who was shopping for a gift for her husband--actually sent you payment, I personally think the time has passed for seller's remorse. Refunding her payment because "something came up" is unprofessional. I certainly won't do business with you again, and I suggest other buyers steer clear as well.

This has been a very disappointing negotiation/transaction.

^ buyer always reserves the right to end a transaction.

the reason I didn't sell to your friend had to do with two conditions; she made me feel bad and in return I caved at a lower price then I should have (also she didn't pay paypal fees, etc, after I told her I'd need $ net), and I intended to buy another watch with the funds in which that transaction fell through.

she had all of her money back almost instantly. the moment she send me the $ I refunded it. no need to get hostile over it.

As far as I understand it, you and I negotiated her price, I'm not sure what you felt bad about. And if she didn't included your fees, that was a misunderstanding on her part, she does not use paypal much. I suggested she not use the gift function as you requested (technically against SF rules), but should use a credit card for her protection, but she should pay the fees. Had you pointed that out you were shorted, she would have happily fixed thing. Rather than you explaining what happened, you cancelled the deal and returned her money, leaving her in a difficult position. I'm not being "hostile" I'm being critical, because you didn't handle the negotiation responsibly. I'm suggesting to the forum that because you handled the situation poorly, and they should be warned against doing business with you. It's neither hostile or personal.

Regardless, I don't see how anyone should be "warned" because I instantly refunded a purchase and did nothing harmful other than waste 5 minutes of her time. I didn't handle it poorly. I told her that I was sorry but couldn't go through with the transaction upon receiving the money and instantly refunded that. Pretty painless...

That's about it - I don't think I owe a further explanation and the many people who've purchased or worked with me in the past have had excellent experiences. Sorry this wasn't one for your friend.

Well, OK...But the fact that you see no issue agreeing to terms with someone--negotiating a price and actually taking payment--and then canceling the deal with no further explanation than "something came up" is exactly why I think writing a warning is in order. I suspect there are many here who would prefer not to deal with a seller or buyer who thinks that is acceptable behavior.
