Battered Cellini?

The description of this watch makes no sense.

It has a stainless case. It has a gold case.

It has a serial number. It doesn't have a serial number.

It was serviced last month, but apparently not by Rolex.

Oh, and it looks like it went through a blender.

Is it real?

Look at his feed-back . . .

He buys to re-sell, and in this case, he used eBay's template for the model.

It looks like he's only guilty of failing to edit eBay's form properly.

Thanks folks.

There's always something new to learn of TRF.

Attention to detail=FAIL.

Just think what a few extra minutes of reading over the listing could have done.

About 70% of the people I encounter on any given day are paying less than proper attention to what they're doing. Think cell phone in traffic . . .

Posting a watch for sale on eBay with incorrect information provided is hardly earth-shattering.

Maybe it isn't earth-shattering, which I don't think he implied, but the ebay seller is trying to sell a watch and an accurate description would seem to be of utmost importance for the purposes of selling a product online.

In the day of "fake news", close is often enough . . .

Every day people on eBay bid thousands of dollars on watches and other items offered by sellers who registered the day the auctions started, even though there is no logical reason to believe a newbie miraculously popped out of the ground with a $10,000 item for which they'd happily accept $500.

If they'll bid on a mythical, nonexistent super-deal Rolex, they'll bid without blinking on a watch with a few errors in a listing from a guy with feed-back over 23,000.

Personally, I don't like inconstancies because I am a skeptic and more than a little suspicious, but few people today are as picky as I am . . .

None of this makes Valencia's point invalid.
