When the seller says "original", then I think I've found something nice and will bid accordingly.
When the seller says "restored" (even "factory serviced" or "factory restored") then I know to look closer and ask questions about the work done. Sometimes even the factory may use parts that weren't originally used because of age, availability, etc.
Finally, I've learned that I don't care that much about the above. If I like the watch, and the price, I'll generally buy it. If it's a piece/model that has some horological significance to me, then I'm more particular.
Bottom line, I try to ask all my questions before I buy. Once I pull the trigger, it's mine unless there is an absolute misstatement of fact. But in 15+ years of buying junk online, I've never had someone outright lie to me about a product. We may have disagreed, but those are down to opinion.
Anyhoo...I'm just glad we've got places like this to ask our questions. Makes it so much easier to spend our money. :)
