No he won't be selling fakes, he's well known in HK, and worldwide. Try Google.

I purchased a steel DJ from him a couple of years ago. Though I visited him at his shop at quarry bay to purchase it. I had no problems with my purchase

I don't see any awesome bargains there.
But yeah, the pieces are quite nice.

shows what I know... I guess I just expected higher prices on the really old stuff. The 1930-40's watches didn't appear too high, Certainly not unobtainable if someone was interested in such things.

I'm no expert either, but there's a 2007 Pepsi GMT for $12,000 which IMO is too much money for that model.
Then again, I have no idea.

Yes, that price is a joke....it's not even a 3186 (not that it would justify the price). It's just NOS.

I hope he negotiates... LOL. Some prices are a bit obscene.

I'm in the middle of a deal with him right now! So far so good, really quick to respond. I'll tell you how it ends up in a few days.

Bear in mind it's illegal to import a Rolex into the USA by mail. I believe he has ways around this, but you might want to discuss that with him sooner rather than later.

No, his prices are the same whoever, wherever he is selling to. Import restriction info here: http://www.crownandcaliber.com/watch...united-states/

I just completed my deal with Alex. He was very quick to return emails and answer questions. He was a stand up guy from start to finish, I would recommend!
