Thought you may want to know. I just drove two hours at the sellers consent to view this watch. When I arrived I was told by the seller he would not show the watch in person because it was listed on EBAY.

What do you think?

I say buyer BEWARE!!!!! Seller is a local PAWN SHOP Liberty Exchange in Virginia Beach VA.

Kind regards, Chris

BS that he wouldn't let you see it.
Nice Mark IV dial open 6's, Red on White,
correct for serial.
Lugs looks nice. No chips on minute marks.
Bracelet probably original too.
I'd want movement pics though

I could not believe it either. The owner seemed very nervous and I wasn't going to push the issue. I was close to asking if he was selling a fake but just walked out. I wonder about the dial, if anything the markers seem a little yellow but it could be the pictures.

He probably discovered you knew what you were talking about when it came to vintage Rolex and he got nervous. Why would he not sell it right there and then and cancel the auction? Something isnt right. Either fake or obvious replacement parts.
