    I recently received a defective sub $100 watch and they just offered to send me a new one for the cost of shipping. $3.00 It's kind of silly to ship sub $100 watches back and forth.

    I sent one back for repair (would've been happier if the seller just sent another one but they insisted on repairing it). I told the USPS worker the whole story and they didn't care that it was a watch. I believe I even wrote "watch" on the form for customs. No problems.

    I clicked on the link and I read the rules. Indeed, the watches are listed as prohibited.... and I only have one question: WTF?

    It's blanked out because he sells fake watches; ie watches with copyright infringement as noted in the sticky at the top of the page. Terms like Marina Militaire and Submariner are the property of Panerai and Rolex exclusively and cannot legally be used by others. Thus, any sellers offering watches with these infractions are banned from WUS...at least their URLs.

    ah makes sense. i was confused because i understood why terms such as mm etc were banned. but i could see that other online shop url's selling similar products to the one we're referring to were not being blanked out. but i can see why now. thanks.

    i was wondering the same thing. They come up high on a google search and have some good prices at the moment. I did a quick whois search and it comes up with the same name as parnishop dot com, Zhang Liang (who is associated with ca. 1900 other domains). Btw, parnisshop dot net has a different owner
