  1. The is my experience with Toro Bravo. Check out the attached pix for my email correspondence with him. Long story short: Sept 2018: Bought and received my watch. Movement was weird from Day 1 but I thought it needed to be “broken in”. Nov 2018: Watch completely stopped. Looking back, it was obvious the watch was drop-shipped without QC. Dec 2018: Returned the watch for warranty repairs. Jan – Sept 2019: I asked for repairs status update once a month and was constantly patronized/lied to. Oct 2019. The watch has spent 9 months “at the repair shop” and still not fixed and I am given a choice of: 1) Have the unfixed/broken watch sent back to me, or 2) Continue to wait for repairs but am told that spare parts are non-existent. Looks like I am screwed either way. What would you do?
  2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Panerai-Moonphase-17-Jewels-Automatic-Wristwatch/132576743766 Let's [censored] with this [censored]. How horrifying, and 14 morons are bidding on it.
  3. Hey guys, I'm a new member and I basically signed up on this forum just to ask you guys questions about fake rolex websites. I want a fake rolex, however I keep finding really fishy looking websites that seem too good to be true. I found this one based in Australia (Which would be extremely convenient for me because I live in New Zealand) and they seem legitimate, I've made an account and everything I'm very close to buying one but I feel like it could very well be a scam. The name of the website is "www)mywatchesonline)com)au". I am getting so frustrated at this point because I really want a watch but I just don't want to lose my money. If this website does turn out to be a scam, I would be so appreciative if you guys could tell me a real website for replicas. -Jimbo
  4. I am searching for an HM2 and found it on watch117. But I am almost sure the site is scam. Anyone ordered from them?
  5. I'll get us started: $57k 5513" mislabeled in the auction with no serial or movement photo's... PCG case too. Feel free to share more!
  6. Can they please shoot me a pm? He hasn't responded in 3 weeks and I don't know wtf is going on
  7. Hi Guys, Can anyone please validate the authenticity of these two sites. They seem to be pretty much the same site but with different domain names. 1. iparadisiac.co 2. Perfectwatchez.co They offer payment by Visa, Western Union and Wire Transfer. The collection is great. Website looks top-notch, great deals and some random reviews on the web say both these websites are genuine. I was about to buy a couple of watches but then I thought to confirm validity of the website here before I take the plunge. Please help. Thanks, Ronnie
  8. Ordered something and never heard back. Website down too. Anybody know anything about them?
  9. Tell-tale signs of a scam site Genuine Pictures No replica is 1:1, using a genuine picture that an authorised dealer would use is only a sure sign that the site is misrepresenting what they're selling. Adding their own little watermark to genuine pictures does not fix this either. Replicas being made in Switzerland or Japan Or any other country that isn't China is complete rubbish, if they're going to lie to you about this, it's likely they're going to lie to you about what they will be doing with your money Movement description No replica (bar a few exceptions) are going to have the same movement as what you find in the genuine (HUB4100, Calibre 2121, 3187, other in-house movements etc). And if they're going to describe the movement as just "Automatic" or anything along the lines of that's just no good. You'll find some of the more common movements that are used in reps in the Resource Centre: http://www.rwgforum.net/forum/208-resource-center/ Price A simple automatic (21J) or Quartz will be in the $100 range A clone of a Swiss movement will be in the $200-$300 range A working mechanical chronograph (7750/7753) are $300+ Of course this is just a very general overview of price, but if it's too good to be true, it most likely is, and if it's too anything like $1000+, it's most likely a scam, you're not getting better quality or anything closer to gen by paying that much more. Testimonials With the full weight of four massive replica forums with tens of thousands of members each, a proper replica dealer will not need bullsh*t testimonials (probably written by them) to sell their watches. The same goes for 'Review' sites of those webpages (again probably written by them as well) - you have an enormous repository of information here written by thousands upon thousands of members, everything else shouldn't be trusted Other Ridiculous claims: 1:1 quality AAA+ Swiss made Waterproof to same as gen Ability to fool authorised dealers Working minute repeaters, perpetual calendars, automatic tourbillons, solid gold (or other precious metals) Some more outrageous claims are expanded on here http://www.rwgforum.net/topic/119955-the-top-10-lies-about-replica-watches/ Ultimately however, these are all just indicators of a scam site, even if a website does not show signs of above, it doesn't mean it's safe to shop there. But, there is one super easy way to tell if a website/dealer is trusted - and that's if they're on here: TRUSTED DEALERS Common (silly) reasons people want to shop at any other sites 1) They have a watch that the other TDs don't have There are many reasons for this and does not mean a trusted dealer can't get it for you. It may just not be popular enough or repped well enough to be put on their sites or section, or it might just not be repped at all. Find a dealer (after lots of research) and send them a photo of what you want. They'll be able to tell if they're able to get it for you. 2) They have a better price Scam website's supposedly better price will most likely be at the expense of quality of features, that or it's purposely placed low to draw you away from the trusted dealers so they can take your money. 3) They ship from the same country I live in Only a handful of dealers ship from outside East Asia (eg. Narikaa) where they will personally travel to those countries and bring them back, otherwise, if they claim to ship from the US or UK etc, they most likely will not be - anyone can get a .uk or .us domain name.

    dhjason007?

    Hi! I ordered a watch from dhjason007.com the 3rd october. On the site, it says "pending" for 5 days now. Does anyone have experience from this seller? I contacted him to ask about the shipping, he replied 2 times under 1 hour, but since then, he hasent replied for 2 days. "hi friend please tell me the order number,i will check for you. thanks jason" and then he wrote: "can you tell me your dhgate name?" I told him my name on dhjason007.com, but he still hasent replied. anyone know something about him?!
  11. Someone looks like they're trying to flip a $130 Patek rep for $2600 on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/221118977137 Check out the back and band especially—and them compare them to this (1st hit on Google): http://www.anyreplicawatches.com/item.php?item_id=1042 18k gold, I'm sure!
  12. Hello I'm new here and wanted to ask you guys about this particular Watch: http://bit.ly/zkuMLf Why is it so low priced? I don't get that, please explain! Thanks for the help!
  13. I don't want to trash anyone but I am a Noob and have been in contact with a very trusted dealer (based on this forum) for the last several days and need some help. In short after many emails discovering that the watches on the site were not available I decided on a watch. I was sent instructions on how to purchase through paypal and that through currency conversion it was more then was advertised on the site. After several emails showing the converstion rate I was told it gets rounded up to the next 5 of the foreigh currency. Should have been my first clue that this may not be the best dealer but it turned out only to be $3 USD. But in principal I was concerned. So I followed the complicated process (I understand the need) and paid for the watch. The site lists the whole QA process of photographing the watch and showing how the movement gets collaborated. I hear nothing for a day. I then ask the question where are the pics. I then am told that the watch came in with a finish that was a different shade and it was rejected by the dealer. I was asked to pick another watch which I did. I have not heard anything. I checked my bank account and it was debited for the amount of the watch. It is a expensive watch. So now I am in limbo. I am not sure why you would debit the account without having the actual watch. I am very concerned now!!!! I am not sure if this is a scam or just bad business practice. I would like to have someone mediate for me in private and if it is a scam expose it publicly after the proper investigation is done. Please advise.
  14. Hey folks, This is a sad day for me when everything came to write this post. Long story short: I bought from PureBags a bag on Dec. 2nd and still have yet to receive anything! No money, no bag and so far no response. But here's the complete deal: On Dec. 2nd of last year, I ordered a nice Hermes bag for my wife's birthday just right before Christmas. I chose PureBags since I have bought many watches from Angus (Puretime) and my experience was always a good one. Also I was directed to the PureBags site directly from his webpage. So what could go wrong? For me it was a done deal. However, they took like forever to send me a tracking number. When they finally sent it, the tracking site said the item was stuck in Hong Kong and never left. So when I insisted on this situation, Tony at PureBags told me the shippers site was having problems, but the item was already on it's way... so after many emails coming back and forth, Christmas passed and on Dec. 28th I receive an email from Tony telling me that the item was seized by customs in my country and that there is nothing they can do other than me paying for another bag for them to ship it. I was freaking mad! How fresh from them to ask me to pay again for an item I did not receive! It's not the first time I buy from Asia, and is not the first time to have trouble with customs. But the most funny part is that the shipping company sent back the item to them! Knowing this, they agreed to resend the bag to me for a second time and this is the day I have yet to receive anything. When I asked again for a tracking number, they sent me one that is not working or to be found by any tracking site. And now they don't even answer my emails! People, I sincerely don't know what happened to Angus, but this is not what I expected from a long trusted seller.
