    My Craigslist haul

    Sometimes if you keep looking on Craigslist and you're not searching for one thing in particular, good things can be found. The 5 watches in the pic are the part of my collection that come from the site.

    True story: I found my job on Craigslist. The money that paid for my entire collection came from my job. Ergo, my entire collection came from Craigslist.

    When you start buying Omegas and stuff do you meet the seller somewhere to confirm their authenticity ?

    The one I did, the other not. Figured the since the Seamaster Professional was close to 20 years old and came with appropriaely-aged box, papers, pictograms, service records, extra links etc. that would have been a bit too much work for a fake. I guess there;s always a chance of being taken...

    That's awesome....meet the seller at a safe location (police station) and you and try it on and verifying its authenticity. Great haul!!!

    Unusual but interesting source. Sometimes it is worth the uncertainty

    Plenty of other platforms to buy from too, to include Facebook Marketplace and Reddit. I have only sold a watch via Marketplace, but the process was smooth and I met the buyer at a local coffee shop.

    Congrats on the great finds.
