    Chrono24 is legitimate. There are also a lot of good deals to be had on eBay.

    However, since you are a member on this board, it?s a good idea to interact with sellers here, and develop a friendly relationship, which would serve you well on your future purchases.

    Chrono24 is a marketplace, albeit a policed and regulated marketplace, and will never be 100% all the time. There will be a shady seller every now and then. You'll have to research the seller as you would in any marketplace but they're generally very good.

    Iíve had three purchases from Chrono24 and all went seamlessly. As always, but the seller first before you buy the watch.

    It says "private seller" under seller. That means you are buying from an individual; not a company or brick and mortar. Hence no website, or information is disclosed. For such sales, usually it helps to hit the "contact seller" button and get a dialogue going to establish trust and whatnot; but in this case there may be a language barrier. I would pass unless i could properly communicate with the guy, or he had some way to show positive feedback.

    chrono24 has a secured payment form as an option.

    Its not always so bad dealing with a private seller on Chrono24 who is nonverifiable. In this case, your seller will take payment thru the escrow process, which will allow you to use a credit card. This give you a strong protection thru your credit card company to contest the charge if things go south.

    I have just done the same thing, purchased from a non verifiable individual on Chrono24 who offered the Chrono24 escrow service. I paid early yesterday and so far have heard nothing from the seller. If I had not paid by cc I would be a bit concerned. Also, some cultures it seems are very poor at communicating and sellers may say nothing for days. This is very different from what I expect on WatchUSeek when a purchase is made, but I have seen it before. I will just wait to hear something. I should be OK since paid by cc.
