Frostie,

thanks but the watches represented on that site equal the number of rolexes stolen in a minute!! We need something more subtantial ... many times I have passed on a deal, a good deal wodering what if the watch is stolen? Serial numbers and case numbers matching is all fine and dandy but if the watch is hot, then that's it, you're in the hole ....and my AD told me he has to send the watch out back to rolex for a check like that...

They will confiscate the watch from what i've heard and return it to it's owner. Probably they might call the police also to arrest you

I would suggest using the one on qualityme since some "stolen watch report" sites have been known to be scam sites to get real serial numbers for forgerers to use.
