This is a very unfortunate experience. Authenticwatches.com misrepresented the watch they were selling, had less than perfect communication throughout the process, and had taken the restocking fee. They won't have me as a customer. OP thank you for posting this and keeping the community informed.

I think authenticwatches will be fine. They may have missed a dozen sales from here, but they'll be ok in the end. Let's hope their "fully stickered" misleading title is corrected for the future unless they do have fully stickered (factory) watches for sales.
WOW! Mr Luxury, you really are from the moon! Really?! So a retailer lies mid- represents a product, an innocent buyer in good faith purchases relying on their false assertions and when he receives the product sends it back expecting a refund. He is out the funds while the seller drags their feet on the refund and finally they send his funds back minus 900 bucks. The buyer has lost not only the $900 but he is out the cost of shipping the piece back, not to mention the stress of this seller making it difficult to get the refund they did send. Here comes Mr Luxury, who says the seller is entitled to the 900 bucks to pay for their time and costs even “give them a small profit”! That this company could use such deceptive business practices and there would actually be someone who would condone such deception is really indeed from the moon. Very Sad.

Ok brother I'm gonna help you out here. I dont live on west coast and neither do you. Since the seller is probably reading this thread here is what he needs to know.

1. Write one final email letting him know that now is the time to issue the refund in full. Once you sue him you wont accept the refund and will move forward with court fees, damages, service fees, etc. So, its $990 NOW and you wont take $990 later. DONT BLUFF OR POSTURE! If you say it then stick to it.

2. Call the court or file electronically. Here is the court link:
http://www.ventura.courts.ca.gov/small-claims.html

Its inexpensive to sue, takes about an hour of your time and it is effective.
You can also let the seller know that once you file you will also submit a negative review on Yelp and Google and file a claim with the BBB.

Here you go with that:

https://www.bbb.org/us/ca/moorpark/p...-1236-92003976

https://www.amazon.com/sp?_encoding=...b=&vasStoreID=

https://www.trustpilot.com/review/authenticwatches.com

https://www.scamadviser.com/check-we...ticwatches.com

They sell on Amazon and ebay so start with complaints there. Plaster the web with your factual complaint. Dont call them crooks or scammers but words like misleading and deceitful are just fine.

We have an old saying.. if you dont get back your money, you will get your pound of flesh. One way or another make them pay. If they lose even one sale from any of your reviews then you have saved someone else..

Pay it forward and Good Luck..

Great advice!

Well done; make those "used watch sellers" reply in Cali, your jurisdiction; it will cost more for them to buy airline tickets than to give you your money. PM me pls.

Good advice...

Correction, "watch sellers" with outrageous, non-industry standard fees.

It's sad to see so many resellers get lazy with condition ratings.... Condition is king
