    I'm sorry, but the photos, while imperfect, were good enough to see the multitude of scratches on the bezel, and the scratch on the display caseback. In particular, it's pretty clear from the photos that in was hardly in perfect cosmetic condition. In particular, there's enough information in the photos to suggest that one should take the description with a huge grain of salt, or to interpret "perfect condition" as referring to it's mechanical condition as opposed to the cosmetic condition.

    In my experience as both a seller and buyer, the success of the transaction is 80% linked to photos and the quality thereof. If a seller has some sketch photos with crazy flash or underexposed grainy images, I simply won't take them seriously for an item over $20. It's like someone showing up for an interview looking like a slob. Presentation speaks volumes...

    Poor pictures, ridiculous contradictory description, watch from Albania, what were you thinking on this transaction?

    That said you don't have to send anything expedited at all he isn't calling the shots here, just ship it back and work through the paypal process, you will need to pay for shipping since the original posting I"m assuming states return shipping paid by buyer.

    ***Edited to add***

    After looking at the photos it's clear the bezel has some significant scratches and the case back is beat up. The description as perfect is clearly off but the pictures accurately represent its condition. Just send it back, get your money back and move on.

    Ebayers who describe something as PERFECT condition (or very similar) when its secondhand deserve a good slap

    When a seller uses "wonderful" more then once then throws in a "perfect" and a "fantastic" to top things off in a description I start getting suspicious.

    Maybe that condition is "as described" in Albania.

    Chalk it off as a lesson... You bought this on ebay, didn't request extra pics, didn't ask questions ..... from Albania.

    Dude, be glad you even got ANYTHING... :)

    Albanian soldiers don't even buy ebay watches from Albania.

    Like the picture of the Albanian Special Forces.......With bullet proof vests too.
    Can you guess why they are on backwards?
    Any watches posted may be seen as gifts,borrowed or found property and not as personal property of Little Big Feather.
