11000 reviews all good. But doesn’t this seem too cheap for a mint Pepsi with box/papers?

Isn’t that the going rate? Buy the seller and ratings of course.

Not a bad watch by any means. It's been nicely polished (in my opinion). Bezel insert has some marks and is a service replacement (it's got thin font) which is very common but not original (or even period correct as pre-2005ish had fat font). It's got a box (which trade for $225ish) but papers aren't original. Pepsi's are usually more expensive than cokes and blacks are usually cheapest so it's a good price - wouldn't say ridiculous considering the issues mentioned.

If that's what you are looking for, I'd call it a good deal - probably not a great deal.

I would say it's been polished (looks okay) and it has a replacement bezel insert (very common).

It has a box - but "papers" aren't original so don't really mean anything. If you aren't worried about issues raised, I don't see any red flags.

Are you worried it’s not authentic or that it could have replacement parts or both?
