quick once over from the experts 14270

Hi everyone,

I'm looking at getting this watch and wanted a second opinion if it's the real deal...

The pictures appear to be of an authentic Explorer.

But youíd want to vet the seller, too. You can open a thread in Whoís Who asking for references.

Or search the sellerís name there too.

Why? Because scammers have been known to steal pictures of authentic watches they donít own. Or hijack an honest sellerís accounts. Thus, you can end up duped into wiring money for nothing in return.

Thanks. It's paypal so I have some recourse if needed, but I don't get any bad vibes from the seller or the watch, but I just wanted to make sure.

Watch looks fine. If using PP, only use the "goods and services" option and pay via CC if possible.

The only think that strikes me as odd is the lack of a really clear picture of the dial. Some great closeups of everything else but that to me is a slight concern.
