Is this one of them?

http://www.chrono24.com/bremont/s500-su ... 880448.htm

Crown looks off to me but I'm not an expert. If this is a fake, these pics are perfect (for the person selling a fake) in that it shows just enough to get the naive to bite.

Notice the listing says Bremont but only 5ATM. The fact this guy gave him pics of the movement and the 5ATM says to me that this person is trying to get away with selling some good higher dollar fakes.

awesome now that PP ruled in my favor...let me do a recap:

I search bremont on a whim and this deal came up
http://www.ebay.com.my/itm/201886562753?ul_noapp=true

says 2014...i rmbr gemnation had a crazy ass sale for a while...seller had more feedbacks than the 39 listed...
i figured wth just bid..n got outbidded on 1850...no loss.
got an email next day from him giving me a 2nd chance offer
sure y not.
i was away visiting the wifey and told seller i would PP when i return (last night)
also asked for fedex/dhl etc as well as service/running history
he replied dhl is pricey, i said isn't it just a box n a watch shouldn't be too bad right?
he said sure ok let him check
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i woke up to terry's thread..i thought 'aa shit'
wrote to him right away initiating a cancellation with the link to the wus thread

at this point it was too soon on ebays timeline for a return case
i rang ebay, explained everything and Ebay Julius said 'k we got u covered'
as we were on the phone, seller emailed saying ok he will refund
ebayJulius said ok they will keep track of it while saying i should ring PP to make sure refund in
he then gave me a link to report the seller

I rang PP, they said to sit on it for coupla days, but otherwise everything looks OK my end should it go south
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

things got slightly funny here
we have all done a PP refund before right? its as simple as (from google)
1.Log in to your PayPal account.
2.Click History.
3.Click Details next to the payment you want to refund.
4.Click Issue a refund.
5.Enter the refund amount, then click Continue.
6.Review the information, then click Issue Refund.

now this guy after saying he will refund over a few emails and how he will update me right away etc
(including me sending the above info to him)
also said he doesn't know jack as he bought it off someone
while listing another exact bremont s500 in green.
he is telling me he can't do it right away because:

New message from: alanchow42913 (39Yellow Star)
Because I need to transfer money from the bank to paypal so it takes 7 days to make a refund,I will inform you after the refund


Bull shit I say. I rang PP right away to clarify..the guy in the nicest way said nope thats BS
he can't file a refund based on a item not matching a description yet, but he could raise a dispute first
asking the seller to send tracking info. assuring me still i would be protected regardless.

and what dya know? refund came in right away.

:shrug:

Glad to hear that PP/eBay was actually a help in this case.

I think in this case just coming in with clear details.. And using the WUS link as a reference was helpful
