If you're not 100% confident with the seller (IE: trust him completely), I say no...regardless of if the monetary side of the deal is good or not!

Well it's not that I don't trust him..it's more the math and his view on the value of my watches

speedy auto 1200$ for a watch worth over 2000$ ..and The seamaster from 2008 real value now 1700$ again 1200$...thats a loss of 1300$ just to deal with his Explorer 2 rolex

Would that be fair i ask ?

Welcome to the Forum!

Unfortunately, the value you place on your watches may not be the same any seller is willing to accept on a trade.

If you feel you can sell your watches for the amount claimed, you should do so first...and then look for the watch you are trying to purchase.
