    While not the most professional one I've seen, would it nevertheless give you legal recourse with the seller should it turn out to be non-genuine?

    Genuinely interested as some of the watches I have are certificated by a vendor other than the manufacturer or AD.

    Having grown up in Romford I am fairly sure that watch will not be genuine

    I think it does. By signing it, they have misrepresented an item (assuming watch sold is a fake).

    A genuine watch would be an implied term of the contract. You would be covered by CRA 2015, even if you had not signed anything.

    What on earth would the FCA have to do with a second hand jewellery shop? They regulate banks and the like

    Website content is as simple as the certificate, not much detail in some of their watches except to say itís a Rolex

    Their filing history makes for mildly interesting reading (if you like that sort of thing)

    Tz-uk members may know that I sit on the Council of the National Pawnbrokers Association.

    I write with care.

    Where one or more members of the Council object to an application for membership, a vote will determine its success by simple majority.

    That vote need not be unanimous.

    There are some who feel that an association should welcome applicants who aren't getting everything right, believing it is better they are embraced and shown a better way.

    There are others who feel that acceptable standards should be demonstrated first.

    I sit at one extreme of this division.

    Bet they still hang on to the bloody thing though if its for a Rolex!

    Some people might be reassured by such a certificate. If there's nothing wrong with the watch don't see there's a problem TBH.

    A poor website and small shop obviously not competing with larger companies but if it's all legit, so what?

    Makes you wonder how many watch buyers would have been reassured by the certificate had the wording been sensible.

    It doesn't show any detail about the watch, serial number for instance.

    One day you complain it isn't genuine, they say "that's not the one we sold you!"

    That looks dodge - i'd want a Certificate of Authenticity for that Certificate of Authenticity. I've seen better, more professional documents for fake autographs on EPay.
