    PLEASE report this to eBay!!! Someone is about to get ripped off....

    Take a look at this listing, and tell me if you see anything off with it?

    Marina Militare Luminor GMT Panerai Box | eBay

    Yes, that is a 70 dollar watch in a 50 dollar case selling for 1100 dollars. Please report this so that the folks who bid on it don't get ripped off!!

    By the way, I messaged the seller and his response was:

    "I dont know anything about its value !
    I will let the winner decide that.
    The listing does clearly explain exactly what is being offered for sale"

    He then told me that they have sold on eBay for around $2000 before.

    I don't get it. Is the Militare a rare watch?

    Wow...that really sucks. And no, it's not rare...in fact we're not even allowed to talk about the brand in WUS because the company is under trademark lawsuit by Panerai: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/abo...ts-316289.html

    I hope the moderators make an exception this time however since it's clear we're looking at an obvious con by the ebay seller, especially in the Q&A section. It's just like those other ebay ploys of sending fake feedback to boost one's rating.

    Some of the questions and answers are "very well written."

    Q: Hello its a very nice watch and I am very interested. Is it a Panerai ?

    A: Hello, No the watch is not a Panerai. As the listing states this is an authentic Marina Militare !!! But it does come with a Panerai case. Many thanks, Dave.

    How is the guy scamming people when he clearly states that it's not a Panerai? Is it that he's using plants to boost the bidding?

    Looks like he restarted the bidding at £.99.

    Rare and valuable, that's funny.

    It doesn't smell right....but I wrote the guy.....

    Dear davey1974,

    That's a Chinese made knock off of a Panerai that sells for under $100 new....why so much for yours ?

    - raptor_boy



    Dear raptor_boy,

    Who Knows ???
    I have had people offering me literally 1000's of pounds for it !
    I don't know what to do about it ?
    I thought the listing was quite clear. I mean you could see it right ?
    Dave.

    - davey1974
    If someone is legitimately making an offer at that number....I guess "a fool and his money are soon parted."



    Cheers,
    Rob
