Could this be legitimate?

Paper and packaging look good but there’s always skepticism on eBay. Returns are however accepted. Any downside here?

Newer eBay seller with limited history
Oversees seller
Hottest Rolex priced well below market value
No close up pics of watch
Post contains typos and moronic banter

Any downside? Yeah, you lose $10,500.

HARD PASS!!

“Im selling this watch because it was a gift from previous job colleges but they didn't know cos i dont like metallic straps. And change for this model to leather strap is stupid idea and wont look good :) “

Not to mention he’s in Riga, Latvia but is selling a watch bought at Geary’s in Beverly Hills. Likely stolen photo’s from another seller’s listing.

Does the plastic case come with a new watch or is it used by Rolex for shipping serviced watches?

It comes with a new watch. Some AD’s give them to the buyer, some don’t.

The only positive feedback he has as a seller is for an empty Iphone 8 box for $1.29

Send him Monopoly money. He can use it to buy another imaginary watch.

Watches come to the parent Dealer in the small plastic coffins, and are shipped by secure carrier as watch shipments can be worth millions.

The boxes and booklets are shipped separately in big cardboard packing boxes by the cheapest method possible.

Dealers, or market area distributors, marry up the box and watch for sale.
