Looking to buy in Carousell
 
Hi! I'm looking to buy a BNIB Omega Speedmaster 300m in Carousell. There are many users selling with a decent price (around 3k), like swissengine_sg and singapore_stuff. Is there anything that I should watch out for and has anyone here bought from them to confirm that they're legit?

Do I need to check the authenticity with swatch service?

Swiss Engine sells Tudor Pelagos for $2,000. :s13::s13::s13::s13:

i believe those are parallel import with their own so called 2yrs warranty.

omega by default comes with 5yrs international warranty.

alot of these skeptical sellers on carousell recently, getting alot more. if its too good to be true then its too good to be true. at such prices, the dealers/resellers will be sweeping clean already, if its still there means people don't dare touch.

Yeah thats what I thought as well. But they have so many good reviews (swissengine_sg has 416 5 stars) with many buyers claiming their products are “authentic”. I don’t know if these “grey market” sellers really legit or not, considering that they don’t t offer the official 5 year omega warranty

if u read through his reviews.

they operate under a few different username, nickalice is one of them. they have pretty good reviews on carousell/lazada selling cheap grey tag, breitling then recently adding in tudor/omega.

got some negative comments on lazada.

i suggest u don't waste your time on them, most people that buy cheap tag from them wont even bother to go for authentication, probably not wanting to know the truth.

I think if pricing is something like $200-300 off, it is still possible.

But to halve the asking price, only fools will believe that it is authentic. Way too good to be true. If I can sell for $3.6K and people will still grab, why am I selling at $2,000? Put yourself in the shoes of the seller, and think if it makes sense. Why he's so nice to forgo upwards of $1,600? Cos he is very nice and trying to gain karma? Even if authentic, something is fishy about the whole thing.

Also, why does he use chrono24 pictures in his listing?

Ya, second hand still possible, I've seen some amazing deals on Carousell, assuming authentic. Those deals usually snatch up same day same hour though. :s13:

yeah .. pelagos for 2k … totally not possible

nathanaxel 18-05-2020 08:59 PM

Ok thank you so much guys. I think I have to go with my guts here. The price is too good to be true, so I wont deal with them. Maybe if they allow me to authenticate in swatch group then I will re-consider

arc13 18-05-2020 08:59 PM

Ah my wife has a patek too but she wears it quite often. u should too :)

doubt they will, u can give it a shot though. ask them deal at swatch group after circuit breaker then see what they say. :o :D

i roughly know they operate based on pre-orders, very little existing stocks. exchanged a few msgs with nickalice before in lazada.

It’s common sense le . Half price tag Heuer on Carousell or q10 ... and u really think it’s authentic. When did you ever heard of factory reject tag watches and hence selling cheaply ?

just plain common sense.

watch retail 10k, grey shop sell 8k

suddenly got carousell sell brand new, instead of 5 years warranty, become 2 years.
price 2k. got such good deal floating around, waiting for you?

u think?

don't waste 10 years of education. please be well informed. don't be an idiot

lol. factory reject will flow out to outside meh?

alot people sure tio cheated by these people.

why i know? cause i went to buy to test water and have it authenticated, it's fake. ask for refund, the seller act blur, say eh why like that blah blah blah.

could have gotten the police to arrest him.

those who sell you watches, bring out sapphire glass test kit, 100% watch is fake.

if watch is authentic from start, don't even need the test kit because its 100% sapphire (unless those using plexi like speedy etc).

so people who are reading, don't be naive and get hunted.
if really got such cheap deals, singapore AD can all go eat sh1t already. close down liao.

those losers buay song one, is the one will sabo. especially wear patek one. lol
