In a previous thread "Anyone ever deal with 4-Watches on eBay?" I solicited information about this seller. Based on the comments that some of you have provided here's how it shakes out.
I received 10 replies, and out of those, five were positive, two were neutral and three were negative.
So, basically I've got a 50/50 shot at a good experiance with these guys. Normally I'd walk away from that but, in these hard economic times I've got to get my G-Shock fix somehow. So, I decided to go for it. I went through e-Bay but, I bought myself a little insurance by sending them a message through e-bay asking if the item is new and if it comes with the original box with the manual and warranty card. This way if I get anything other than that I'll have something to go back to them with. My thinking might be naive but it's that little justification that is going to get me a fine timing instrument such as the GW2500-1A.
My only question now is how do I know if it came in the right box??
Seriously, if anyone knows what the box should look like and provide a few pics it would be most appreciated, and likewise when the little timekeeper arrives I will do the same.
Lastly, thanks to all who provided feedback on this seller. Your feedback was most helpful in making my decision, what to look out for, and how to proceed in making my purchase.
