    Do I keep it?

    I am going to Leave the brand out so people will give me there thoughts without brand bias.

    I pulled the trigger because it was an amazing deal.

    The MSRP is approx: $6800
    Grey market dealers have it around $4200
    I got it for $2680

    Its new and unused. One of the reasons I pulled the trigger is it was advertised with a manufacturers warranty.
    I received it last night and it has a third party warranty, but not the manufacturers warranty.

    It was listed as none returnable. Should I make a stink about it and see if they will take it back?

    On the other hand I do like the watch and its possibly the best deal I will ever get in my life.

    If you like it and wanted it and the only thing that's of concern is the warranty - keep it. Warranty is not worth $1500 unless it's a very complex in-house movement that's a pain to fix.
    But if you bought it only because the price was too good - ask yourself if you really want it as $2,680 is not little money

    I concur. Did you buy it because you wanted it or solely because it was a good deal.

    I'd probably keep it, depending on what it is.

    Whatever it is, when I see you in the sales forum I'll be sure to only offer you $2,000 for it

    Re: Do I keep it?

    Let me tell you a story...I paid $2K for a NOS, from a well known source here....Upon receipt, I sent it off for Factory Authorized Service.($450.)
    Had the GM's warranty, watch was fine, I just wanted it serviced because of age and the deal was soooo good I still came way out ahead.
    The watch is worth 5K.....

    As it stands, you might as well just flip a coin.

    Re: Do I keep it?

    Call me overly suspicious, but there has to be a reason even a GM dealer would sell it that far below the going rate. I think I would pull out my magnifying glass and go over it really well for second rate polishing job, then I would open it up (or pay someone to do same) and see what the movement looks like. If it is clean I'd keep it, but if it looks like I was getting lied to I would raise a stink - AFTER I put the charge in dispute with my CC company.

    If I had to guess, I'd say it was purchased from a private seller Who had purchased it from a GM.

    Actually, I do have to guess, don't I?
