I have read previous threads in this forum about buying watches on ebay, and many seem against it, but I got the impression that it was purely for expensive watches, particularly rolex, which are notorious for being counterfeited. I am looking (now, after changing my mind before!) at getting a Seiko SNP003p1, a less expensive but high quality watch in my mind. The two people currently selling this are http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SEIKO-PREMIER-...QQcmdZViewItem and http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SEIKO-PREMIER-...QQcmdZViewItem which both look reasonable, they both sell within the UK, both state that it's brand new in box with 1 year warranty, and falls under the Â£250 paypal protection limit. The only thing is that I have looked at these people's history, and they do have a very good track record (even if one of them is relatively new), but they have been selling the same watches over and over, which leaves me wondering where they're getting their stock, and whether it is genuine. Just wondering what people's opinions of getting this type of watch off ebay is. ---- Edit: I probably won't be looking at getting this watch during this auction, especially since they have a track record of listing similar items in the future, I am just looking to prepare myself, before rushing into spending anything.
