Just finished up a deal with Jon on a GMT, he was very fast with payment, we had great contact during the purchase and he is a wealth of knowledge on watches. I look forward to doing business with him again, and I am sure I will be contacting him later on info on watches. THANKS John!!!!!

John aka Springer

I just got my watch from John today. It is in great condition with thick lugs, clean bezel insert, and without any chips in the crystal. Oh yeah, it came with everything it did when new. There were over 3,248 views of this watch. Perhaps his pics did not do it justice; so I thought I would post some of my pics of this watch to show you the kind of quality you can expect when you by a watch from him. Not bad for a 16 - 17 year old watch. Thanks John.

Steve and John (Beaumont Miller) thanks for the kind words and the great Sub pics. They are definitely better than mine. Enjoy the watches, they are both great pieces.

Just received my GMT II with coke bezel form John "Springer". This is my very first purchase on this forum. The watch arrived at my door step in a well packaged box. It came with all the paperwork and hang tags as promised. The watch is in super clean, pristine condition. You'd never know this is a used watch { I will post pics soon}. I would not hesitate to buy from John again. Thanks John, you are a gentleman.

Just a quick note of thanks to John, aka Springer for helping me find a wonderful 16750.

More, and better photos to follow, but John, thank you and TRF, a big recommendation for Springer for any future purchase.

Thank you John aka Springer for selling and shipping to me my new 78360. John was great to deal with and even followed up with me for a shipping location- after I had paid - because he had not heard from me for a while. I will deal with him again in the future and I recommend him to others. Best, Ken

John's Great!

John's great! I sold him a Submariner- and couldn't be more pleased with the transaction.

He's affable, he's knowledgeable and he's safe to do business with- does everything he say's he's going to do...

Do not hesitate doing business/talking with John!

My first Rolex...

I just bought this 1981 Datejust from springer (John). It is a great looking watch, exactly as it was described, in excellent condition.

He is definitely a good person to do business with. If you should buy a Rolex from John, I highly recommend a face to face with him, if you can, because he is so interesting to talk to.

Thanks!

John is the best!!

I just have to chime in and let TRF what a asset this member is. I bought a GMT from John (aka Springer) over 2 years ago. When the watch started to lose a few minutes a week I started to panic. I called Springer and he had me ship him the watch and had it serviced for hundreds less then Tourneau and Rolex had quoted me. Springer is a great guy that knows his stuff. I couldn't be happier.

Happy 4th everyone! God Bless the USA!

Wanted to jump on here (a bit belatedly) and say that John is amazing to deal with - I bought a 1981 GMT Master from him a couple of months ago and the process was brilliant.

- Very thorough, massively helpful, all pictures and descriptions were perfectly adequate
- Great guy to talk to, and great conscientiousness through payment, etc

Thanks a lot John! (Sorry it's taken a couple of months for me to post this).

Received my 1675 from John today, and the watch was exactly as described. This was my first purchase on TRF, and John was great to deal with. He was very helpful, responsive, and informative throughout the transaction.

John is a knowledgeable and trustworthy seller. He sold me a great watch, and I look forward to doing business with him again.

Thanks, John!
