So i picked up a watch on ebay in the $1000 range. It was described as "in very good condition". The first day i noticed it was running 25 sec/day fast. I thought i would go have it regulated. The watch maker called me and said this watch needs a service since it's accuracy is very random from - 15 seconds in one direction and +25 in an other. Also turning the regulating screw is doing nothing.
So because the watch is now opened by a watch maker, am i **** out of luck to return it ? What are my options ?
I just noticed the ad said "No refund will be allowed for any items sold as is or any time pieces that were not tested for time accuracy."
Although there is a 30 day return policy on his listing.
