    I was giving examples to make my point, not exceptions. Small-time dealer myself - price up a few watches every day, money-where-my-mouth-is stuff, always hoping to have enough to feed the kids.

    No.

    Rule of thumb: it doesn't pay for a private seller to have a watch fully serviced before selling it. Rarely will they make enough extra to cover the additional outlay.

    Watchfinder, Watch club, Xupes and Laings all offered you between 10,000 and 10,950 in the last week for a stickered, unworn full set 116520 ?

    There is something not adding up here.
