1) Matt Bain, along with his partner Massimo Barraca, has been in this game a long time and sold some great watches. They were formally known as "Watchcommander." Expensive but he will stand behind his product 100% in my experience. I would not hesitate to do business with him.
2) AFAIK, Spayne works for Bob Maron. Maron has a long history in this business and has sold a ton of watches. If you search his name here, you can find out more. I have found Rob Spayne's descriptions, while lengthy, to be often incorrect. Stuff is definitely almost always overpriced for what it is and the condition it is in, IMO. This is a common problem now that quality pieces are harder to find than in the past.
3) Love him or hate him, Kamal is certainly a top dealer with outstanding watches who will stand behind his product 100%. Speaking in professional and not personal terms, he is one of the best in his trade with a knack for finding outstanding quality pieces. You will pay but at the end of the day you will have a great, no issues watch in all probability.
4) Have you not been paying attention the last week or so?

Best regards & good hunting,
T.

I agree with Tom. Kamal will always produce a fine specimen and stand behind it

As far as Matt Bain , I have been in his shop a couple of times and I think his prices are average and overpriced frankly

Ron matron very overpriced

Mark lerman I don't know bit I do follow the forum notes

well, the fact is i am going to spend money from these guys....as u know, we are talking about USDXXX,000 , so that's why i want to do some research on it, afterall, my conclusion is....no.3 (k) is my 1st choice, then no.1, then 2?? As they all sell genuine 100% real rolex, only a metter of pricing, right?

Best,

P.S. I may be biased but you should also consider Eric Ku/10pastten.com and Jed McCormack/thetimetraveler.co if you are planning on assembling a serious collection. Both top notch dealers and individuals!
