"I currently have the 2 watches, one of them is the watch you are all familiar with and it has no papers.

The serial number of the watch I am selling on ebay is 2,916,xxx and the watch in question is 2,919,xxx. Although now I am thinking of stopping the auction due to the negative publicity"


BUT the pictures provided show both watches with paper. One shown 2,916XXX and the other 2,919xxx.


Someone isn't telling the truth

Both phoney papers and both watches have papers when we know for certain at least one of them never had any papers.

is insignificant..An experienced collector will point the paper issue out to the seller and a deal will be made. Regardless what went on here.
The watch is right and the punched papers are you like it or not an accessory such as a box or hang tag. So the ebay sale did work out, but another deal will be made privately or at a watch show.

it's unethical no ifs or buts about it.

Faking papers to get thousands $$$ more for the watch is beyond you know what. If one can fake the papers, God knows what else they did with the watch.

this is one example of hundreds of ebay sales going on..Once in a while for years on VRF we bring an auction from ebay to light and debate it..But in this case the punched papers were suspect, but the policing comment in my opinion was a little strong. Rich, if I was out of line I apologize.

But the current dilemma in my opinion, is how can we really tell later added punch papers form let us say factory case production punched papers?
