Vintage purchase experience Feedback List

Footnote1: While there have been no complaints or doubts about the authenticity or quality of his watches by buyers who have bought watches from him and is known for being a red sub expert and for his popular red sub article many of us have used as a guide, some allegations have been levelled about some of his watch's paperwork(not by his buyers), specifically about guarantee papers on some watches. The allegations haven't been proven with concrete publicly available evidence but that's not to say the allegations can be discounted and is upto forumers here to make their own judgement based on the available evidence. In his favour, no buyers have complained about the authenticity of his paperwork on authentication and no evidence of anything amiss when the watches were taken to a RSC, other service centers, or for an expert appraisal. However in light of the allegations, do verify the paperwork when making a full set purchase, just to be sure so that all boxes tick. This note will remain in effect for a year and if nothing more negative comes up about watch papers or with new sales, will be deleted in the latest update of this list in a years time.

Footnote 2: Please note issues raised by drainaps,Kyle in the earlier sections http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=180461, asking the right questions from this dealer necessary to ascertain originality since this dealer might not have the specific expertise catering specifically to collectors as some of the sellers here, has a 7 days no questions asked return policy


A green (*) against a dealers name indicates that atleast 2 forumers have purchased vintage watches from a dealer here, have received them and are happy. So if atleast 2 of you have purchased a vintage watch from any of the dealers in the list, have received it and are happy with the purchase please say so here so can update the dealers name with a green (*).Also note that a single forumer purchasing 2 or more watches from a seller will be considered as one reference and not two.

**All special notes against a sellers name will remain for a year and be taken off if no further negative feedback is heard of in that period.


Purchase Reference list: Besides the green star rating, for added green star rating accuracy, refer to this "Purchase Reference list" to get a feel of the quality of watches forumers here have purchased from their respective sellers by looking up their historic threads for posted watch pictures and making inquiries on the forum.
Mark Lerman (ezinternet,cruvon,Chris B)
Jedly (Steelerfan65,bb3188)
Eric Ku (ddrees,steelerfan65,skyedog,Beaumont Miller II)
Ben (Jason71,yessir69,desfrie)
Jacek (ezinternet,Submarino,Mark020)
Andrew Shear (Steelerfan65,Tcaviglioli,Beaumont Miller II,bluemartinfan,Skyedog,Buffy)
Ralle (florianw,Burswood)
Steve Mulholland (Swearengen,davemcdus)
Ian Blowers (DiamondJack, chiubak,Monobike)


NB: While this list serves to collate all vintage watch dealers forumers have possibly dealt with (from fellow forumers comments above) in one place, it in no way is a measure of the quality/originality of the watches that are on sale with them. Please conduct your own due diligence before you make any purchases by asking questions on the forum, posting pictures, getting references, etc. Also please notify us of any concerns and if the forumers agree I can take them off this list.




VERY IMPORTANT: As always refer to the footnotes and do your due diligence when buying any vintage watch, even from sellers listed as having a green star, since past recommendations are not necessarily a ticket for positive experiences in the future, so ask questions and verify watches through the forum "before" you buy any vintage watch. This is a forumer purchase experience list aimed at helping newbies find a vintage from known sources and is not an official recommendation list or a substitute for doing proper research on watches and sellers before you buy.

This list is really useful for people. Thank to you to Cruzon and others, as it was handy when I started looking and learning.

I just would like to make a small note on Jacek. I made a purchase from Jacek 3 weeks ago, and everything went smoothly, which should not be a surprise to forum members. It was my first vintage purchase, so I had tons of questions - all of which he patiently explained. Jacek also took time to give comments on something for which he has no benefit to gain. That says a lot about him. So I stand by his good name.

Thanks breitlingherst,Tcaviglioli, shairan.
@Tcaviglioli: Need one more purchase reference for Fortunae for a green star.
@shairan: Will add you to the purchase reference list for Jacek in the next list update.
@Dan2000: Not sure, maybe post a new thread in this vintage section so that your query is more visible.

http://www.uhrenfreund.com - Bought a Tudor Chrono
http://www.thewatchcollectors.com - Bought a NOS 16520

I too have bought from blowers. Incidentally they are required by law to let you retrun a watch within 7 days if you bought it over the internet. Not sure if it is a UK law or a European one.

and finally, just so we can drool, tho' I have not bought from them:

Has anyone ever heard of or dealth with Demesey watches out of Dallas TX? Here is the link: http://www.demesy.com/Merchant2/merc...uct_Code=91444

I'm looking at a ladies datejust 2-tone w/oyster band, where Demesey has added diamons on bezel and the hour markers. They are asking 5750.

I am an inexperienced buyer, any suggestions on how to check for originality? They allow for a few days to return, so I would just pay round trip shipping if I am not satisfied.

Appreciate any help from those of you who have experience!

Try checking by posting your query here. http://rolexforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=28
As for cheking for originality, since you are new, post detailed pics (macro of the dial, between the lugs, movement if possible, bracelet etc.) here on the vintage forum asking for advice and the experts here will guide you.

Hello all,
Just purchased my fourth Rolex from Mark Lerrman. A fine gentleman, extremely attentive and very easy to deal with.
After the rumors regarding papers, I took the 1675 gilt I've just purchased to a 35 years experienced Rolex AD. Watch (obviously) and papers were certified.
He is a great guy and and i have heard nothing but good things about him.
I will purchase from him again for sure.
Just wanted to relate my personal experience with this seller.

Hi guys, updates to the list here, thanks for your valuable input, the Seller list and Purchase reference list have been updated with your recommendations




Vintage purchase experience Feedback List

Footnote1: While there have been no complaints or doubts about the authenticity or quality of his watches by buyers who have bought watches from him and is known for being a red sub expert and for his popular red sub article many of us have used as a guide, some serious allegations have been levelled about some of his watch's paperwork by those in the know, specifically about guarantee papers on some watches of his sold through Ebay. The allegations haven't been supported by concrete "publicly" available evidence by those making the allegations citing privacy reasons but that's not to say the allegations can be discounted and is upto forumers here to make their own judgement based on the facts available. In his favour, there has been no evidence of anything amiss when the watches themselves were taken to a RSC, other service centers, or for an expert appraisal. However in light of the serious allegations about the paperwork, for those purchasing full sets which obviously go at a huge premium compared to loose watches, do verify the paperwork when making a full set purchase, to be sure so that all boxes tick and so that you get your money's worth. Buyers/forumers, please feel free to provide public feedback with evidence if you find anything amiss with purchases.

Footnote 2: Please note issues raised by drainaps,Kyle in the earlier sections http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=180461, asking the right questions from this dealer necessary to ascertain originality since this dealer might not have the specific expertise catering specifically to collectors as some of the sellers here, has a 7 days no questions asked return policy



A green (*) against a dealers name indicates that atleast 2 forumers have purchased vintage watches from a dealer here, have received them and are happy. So if atleast 2 of you have purchased a vintage watch from any of the dealers in the list, have received it and are happy with the purchase please say so here so can update the dealers name with a green (*).Also note that a single forumer purchasing 2 or more watches from a seller will be considered as one reference and not two.



Purchase Reference list: Besides the green star rating, for added green star rating accuracy, refer to this "Purchase Reference list" to get a feel of the quality of watches forumers here have purchased from their respective sellers. Forumers have kindly made recommendations here for sellers so that it helps newcomers here, thanks guys for that!

NB: While this list serves to collate all vintage watch dealers forumers have possibly dealt with (from fellow forumers comments above) in one place, it in no way is a measure of the quality/originality of the watches that are on sale with them. Please conduct your own due diligence before you make any purchases by asking questions on the forum, posting pictures, getting references, etc. Also please notify us of any concerns and if the forumers agree I can take them off this list.




VERY IMPORTANT: As always refer to the footnotes and do your due diligence when buying any vintage watch, even from sellers listed as having a green star, since past recommendations are not necessarily a ticket for positive experiences in the future, so ask questions and verify watches through the forum "before" you buy any vintage watch. This is a forumer purchase experience list aimed at helping newbies find a vintage from known sources and is not an official recommendation list or a substitute for doing proper research on watches and sellers before you buy.
