But that was 15 years ago, and things might've changed for the better. Hopefully they did. Just make sure they absolutely, positively have that exact watch in their actual possession, and don't wire them money -- pay with a credit card.

Unfortunately the warranty on that watch just expired, which makes me nervous. Many people had problems with those earliest DD40's from 2015 -- the day/date would change very late on some of them. I mentioned in another thread that Rolex just replaced the entire movement in mine a few months ago, just before the 5-year warranty expired in September 2020. Personally I'd want one that's still under warranty.

I love this model though!
