Anyone bought watches directly from the seller rather than going to an actual store?

How to validate that the watch is not fake? Even though seller say is brand new and got box and papers as proof, it should not be trusted right?

Anyone can advise please?
Go authenticate. If scare then buy from AD.

Thanks for the advice..

Yeah, I sold my last couple of Pams at a loss. But feeling the itch to get one of the new luminor dues, like the 943. I know it's quite divisive esp, among the fans. The thinness and the anthracite dial is quite appealing.

Anyone who bought the luminor due has any views on it?
I think it's ok. Thin but might be big. 45mm.
For pam, I prefer it thicc

so many buy/sell directly.

if worried go for authentication.
if worried about authentication then buy from resellers with shop.
if still worried then buy from AD.

If you buy from carousell, you can look at his feedbacks and rating given. Bought my BB58 from carousell as well. If not pay a little to get it authenticated before going with the deal.

Not watch brand/boutiques of course. Try Top Hour.

I went through this dilemma before. In the end for peace of mind, I got mine from a reseller with shop.

End of day, have to do homework and research.

Heard it was 50 for rolex but not sure for other brands. Got it in mint condition. What watch are you buying so that we can advise you further from here.
