    Missed the beginning of that. Didn't have correct box or papers - highly doubt it was genuine.

    Strange the watch came in an old fashioned Rolex presentation box?

    Apparently they had a 'specialist' come in to verify it was genuine..

    Does the buyer have comeback against the auction house if it's proved to not be genuine?

    I hope this was a few years ago as it pithed as a stonking deal!!!

    I bet the car she bought for her son with the £3k has gone in exactly the opposite direction as the hulk!

    Surely a good deal if verified via auctioneer as genuine, it looked to be in very nice condition.

    In the credits it said auctioneer was Craig Bewick.

    Did they confirm it was a genuine LV or just a genuine rolex that has been modded? I imagine they just confirmed it's a genuine Rolex

    Looks like this lot :

    https://www.goldingyoung.com/Lot/?sa...t=15&id=600275

    If so, fake box and booklet I think . . . that doesn't smell good, but I believe that the watch is genuine.

    Case number appears to be 7J39U397.

    wonder what sort of person would get fake papers for a genuine watch, even if the original papers were lost

    Indeed, it just makes the entire package seem dodgy.

    Reading between the lines, the listing doesnít mention the booklet at all, and doesnít refer to the box as a Rolex box, only an Ďassociatedí box.

    TMS = Tai Me Shu

    Trans-gender individual who flew to Monaco in a helicopter whilst wearing a fake white gold sub which was a ‘loan watch’ from an AD whilst her original watch was ‘on order’. I believe that screenshot is actually her.

    As entertaining as Dawson2k.

    No idea - we weren't exactly buddies, so I wouldn't know any more than the next person.

    The confession made me think she wanted to recover things. Lost cause, I suppose.

    Thread deviation to TMS, that's a blast from the past!

    Just read through the old threads and reminded myself of the comedy value esp. the members who defended that twisted POS
