It’s scary out there. If buying pre-owned, “buy the seller”. If a deal is too good to be true, it is.

Stick with reputable sellers, and ideally buy from an AD. It’s often better to just be patient and know you’re getting what you pay for.

I just wonder, what is even the point of buying authentic of the fakes are 80% as good and much less pricr

One of the many reasons- The fakes can very possibly die on you the moment you get the watch. The real deal lasts for generations.

Even papers can be forged. I agree with sticking with an AD, but secondary dealers do have stuff that can be had at a better price. I think the key is to be able to trace the serial number for the piece.

In fact forging the papers is the easiest part of this whole process. Per the serial number, all you need is one correct SN and you can just replicate it again and again until someone catches on…then swap to the next one that’s confirmed real. Unless there is a control in place catching x number of serial checks having a real Serial is nothing more than a number.

2 questions: 1) How often do you get your watches appraised? My gmt master ii has increased quite a bit over the current insured value (msrp) so think this is a good idea to raise my insurance coverage. 2) where do you get appraisals done? My local jeweler could do it but wondering if these online watch appraisals are better. Thanks much!
