Buy it instantly?

I was browsing through my local ebay and found this offering: A Tudor 79540 for only 700 US-dollars.
It is used, but the condition looks great to me.
What do you guys think of it, and should i be scared of a fake? The original box and papers are included.
Greetings from Switzerland.

Possibly legit, not a super popular reference. Use PayPal and buy with caution

Maybe buyer is flying through NY? What has seller agreed on price? No way its $1375, let alone $700 with 3 days remaining and 117 watchers.
This one's not making a whole lot of sense.

Looks like a nice piece. Whats with the resurgence of Tudor watches? I've always loved their classic look.

Who's stealing who's photos. Seller has removed Ebay listing. Guess we know now or there's a very unhappy buyer on the horizon.
