  1. @Robtb, please do not include personal information in your posts. That includes Name, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses. Use the PM system to contact other members. You may include as much information as you desire in PM’s, not in regular posts. This is for your own protection, as we have no control over who visits our forum. Most are good folks, but some may well be scammers and con artists as well. Thanks
  2. Just scanning thru EBay, sure seems like a good quality of high end Doxas, dials, bezels etc on EBay right now. Be very cautious, especially with parts. Bezels had very subtle design changes over the years. From the top, they all look identical, but from the bottom you can see the changes. Also beware of dials that have been “enhanced” with the Aqualung logo as well as the yellow dial Divemasters with the Poseidon logo added. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Another EBay scammer!! Unfortunately, someone will not heed the warning signs and get scammed. Money gone, no watch either.
  4. Since he is asking 17,706 ( weird number) on Chrono24 I would bet that he wasn’t selling at 12-13k. But, you maybe right could be the buyer thought it was 1200 not 12000!!
  5. Just noticed the BL has been relisted. It’s also for sale on Chrono24. Asking price is 17706.00 USD. I suppose the reserve was not met on the first listing. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. You all do know that the Black Lung along with a few others are being sold by Mr. Doxa himself Rick Marai. Rick recently stepped down as the head of Doxa SA. Since Doxa is a privately held company owned by the Jenny family,there is no information as to why there was a management change. Rick was responsible for resurrecting the Doxa dive watches. Which while having great success in the late 1960’s,1970’s and early 1980’s, by the late 1980’s had ceased production. Under Rick’s leadership the modern Sub 300t was introduced in 2001 and the rest is history. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Must not have made the reserve as it was relisted. Sorry my bad, it was the reissue Black Lung that was relisted. Also the “sketchy” one is still hanging around. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Read this and WEEP!! US Divers catalog from 1971 Look at those Prices! Take note of the Black dial watch n the center the one with the “ No Radiations” symbol. That folks is a Blancpain AquaLung . Retail price 95.00 $ No Black Lungs here as they were from around 1967 but I would bet they were actually a few dollars cheaper. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. I will absolutely say this, a few weeks or a month ago, Cartier was not a tiny blip on my radar. In fact, I looked at a Cartier sort of like a Tiffany watch, in other words watches produced by jewelry companies, not pure watch companies. Now, I know that historically this is incorrect, in fact Cartier stands as one of the first if not the first true wristwatch. Now, a confession.For the past year plus, I have been wearing an Apple Watch, first a 4 and now a 5. I wear one for several reasons, but mainly because of all the features. I’m in my 7th decade. I am very active and work a lot outside
  10. I believe you are correct. I reported a Cartier that was on EBay for the ridiculously low starting price of 250.00 USD. It sold for 600.00 USD , and then appeared as a relisting a day later. It later sold again for 631.00 USD. Obviously the first buyer figured out it was a fake. It is obviously fake, numbers were all wrong, build quality bad and of course the usual "I got this watch as a gift, no box or papers" !! This is the usual scam along with blurry slightly out of focus photos. Took forever to figure out how to report it directly, finally went to the EBay community forum and got help the
  11. @belle Nikita First off welcome to RWG. I believe that while it is a much quieter forum with not as much activity going on, it is a great place for information. We have a lot of folks here who are really, really knowledgeable about watches. If you are in to vintage watches or highly modded watches, this is the place!! We are a very congenial group, and most members will gladly share their information and knowledge with new members.
  12. You are right, I bought a few things from him and he replaced the incorrect hands on a Tudor Snowflake w/ the correct hands. It wasn't very long after that that he got into trouble. I was surprised as well, like I'm sure the folks over on Australia felt when this guy that everyone thought was a straight shooter turned out to be a scammer. I believe that this fellow and Steve M had something in common, they both got into financial trouble and tried to scam their way out of it.
  13. Sounds like a guy on TRF and VRF a few years ago. Steve Mulholland. He sold a lot of watches over the years, then got into financial trouble and scammed a bunch of folks out of a whole lot of money. Not a rep scam, but a scam right along. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
